Hi all, I have been tearing my hair out trying to get some joy out of Redhat's system-config-netboot utility that claims to set up a server to serve a diskless client environment. All goes well until the client boots up, loading the root filesystem from an initrd. The client then says "Kernel panic: no init found". According to the config on the server, the following command line is being given to the kernel: initrd=Fedora_Core_2/initrd.img root=/dev/ram0 init=disklessrc NFSROOT=192.168.200.150:/var/lib/diskless/i386/fedora-core-2 ramdisk_size=10000 ETHERNET=eth0 SNAPSHOT=violet Unfortunately there does not seem to be a way of telling the kernel to print out the command line (that I am aware of), so whether the kernel is actually receiving the above command line is a mystery. I have confirmed that a file called "disklessrc" (an ash script, yes ash is installed on the initrd) is installed in the root of the initrd. The kernel does not agree though. Is there a way of increasing the debugging information during bootup so I can try and troubleshoot this? At the moment I am left completely in the dark by the boot process which doesn't say exactly what it is trying to do. Anyone solved this problem before? Regards, Graham --
