Diskless Environment on Fedora7

Hello Friends,

When i boot a Diskless pxe client i am getting the following error -

Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

Diskless Environment is created in Fedora7.
from the server i can do network installation.
The server image is in other NFS server.


Thank you in advance,

Re: Diskless Environment on Fedora7

This requires that â ramdisk_blocksize=1024â be appended to the kernel command line when booting the client.

The easiest thing to do is to edit /usr/share/system-config-netboot/pxeboot.py

Hope this helps.

It's ramdisk_blocksize=1024 - the " (quotes) have somehow become weird characters. :)
