gPXE used by KVM doesn't understand filename in DHCP option 67
Last modified: 2010-02-18 17:36:46 EST
Description of problem:
I am doing a PXE boot of KVM guest (Fedora 12) with PXE server driven by dnsmasq (Fedora 11). The issue is that gPXE understands filename option sent by BOOTP, but not in DHCP option 67.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set boot type to PXE
2. start a guest
3. see non-successful attempts, press Ctrl+B
4. write "config" and see filename not set
filename not set
This issue was discussed with gPXE upstream at
installing gpxe-0.9.9-1.20091018git.fc13 fixes the issue, so I think it worth to update the package in F-12 to the rawhide version
gpxe-0.9.9-1.20091018git.fc12 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 12.
ok, the gpxe from rawhide is now built for updates-testing. Please give it a try and vote up the karma.
gpxe-0.9.9-1.20091018git.fc12 has been pushed to the Fedora 12 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update gpxe'. You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F12/FEDORA-2010-1085
gpxe-0.9.9-1.20091018git.fc12 has been pushed to the Fedora 12 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
