Would you consider branching and building ipxe for EPEL6? 

I'd be happy to help co-maintain or whatever. 

I want to be able to use the package for boot.fedoraproject.org to replace gpxe thats currently in use and it would be nice if it was packaged and maintained.
Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2012-04-25 03:50:47 EDT
Even if we had ipxe in EPEL6, the QEMU in RHEL6 still will not actually use those ROMs, since they will be in a different location to those packaged for gpxe which QEMU is looking for
Comment 2 Kevin Fenzi 2012-04-25 09:52:42 EDT
Well, I don't want it for qemu... I want it for images to be used with boot.fedoraproject.org. ;) 

However, it might be best if I just build these locally, since ipxe seems to have a constant flow of updates, so we may need to update it out of band anyhow. 

So, sorry for the noise...
