Mark Huang [Mon, 21 Nov 2005 22:33:46 +0000]
- bump version number
- check for bootmanager-* directories as well (automated build appends
  version strings to exported build directories)
- generate yum.conf on the fly
- solve the bootstrap problem by also including any just built packages
  in yum.conf
- retrieve yumgroups.xml from the configured boot server
- add /sbin and /usr/sbin to su programs, in case we're running under
  sudo and they're not in build's PATH

14 years agoThis change is for yum-2.4 from fc4
Thierry Parmentelat [Thu, 3 Nov 2005 16:24:00 +0000]
This change is for yum-2.4 from fc4

when we build the CD from an fc4 node, we want the yum client to ignore

This probably would still make sense if the nodes were to run fc4 too.

14 years agoWhen using yum-2.4 from fc4 to build the bootcd, we get a huge
Thierry Parmentelat [Thu, 3 Nov 2005 16:23:28 +0000]
When using yum-2.4 from fc4 to build the bootcd, we get a huge
directory under <cdroot>/var/yum/cache (in the 100Mb)
It is thus relocated under usr/relocated/var/cache/ and a symlink is
created, in much the same way as for /var/lib/rpm

Not sure that makes sense to keep all this though, but for now it
allows to proceed

15 years ago- if using it to boot, mount the flash device at /tmp/<partition>
Mark Huang [Tue, 21 Jun 2005 21:21:39 +0000]
- if using it to boot, mount the flash device at /tmp/<partition>
  instead of trying to be clever and temporarily mounting it at
  /usr. Being clever confuses "mount /usr" in BootServerRequest.py,
  causing it to re-mount the FAT filesystem a third time on top of /usr
  instead of leaving it alone as already mounted.

15 years ago- when checking removable flash devices, check all partitions on it
Mark Huang [Tue, 21 Jun 2005 18:50:18 +0000]
- when checking removable flash devices, check all partitions on it
  (including the case when there are no partitions on it (e.g. just
  /dev/sda instead of /dev/sda1), i.e. the way I'm about to recommend
  that the flash devices be formatted in the documentation: dd
  if=PlanetLab-BootCD-3.0.usb of=/dev/sda)

15 years ago- add support for booting from USB flash device.
Mark Huang [Tue, 21 Jun 2005 18:48:19 +0000]
- add support for booting from USB flash device.
- the way this works is to loopback mount the usual ISO9660 image, which
  should reside as a regular file on the (presumably FAT) filesystem on
  the key.

Aaron Klingaman [Fri, 27 May 2005 18:06:56 +0000]
- move flash device delay from pl_netinit to pl_hwinit
- rather than just wait for a blind 15seconds, wait up to 30 seconds
  checking /sys/devices to see if drivers are loaded for the mass storage
  devices, checking every 5 seconds
- above change requires the find and dirname binaries, which were moved

15 years agoa few typos created the nice chain of events:
Aaron Klingaman [Thu, 28 Apr 2005 18:23:11 +0000]
a few typos created the nice chain of events:
1. modules.dep was not being read for the list of modules
2. the script merges pcitable (from hwdata) based on the list of modules
   (which wasn't present)
3. this resulted in a few modules not being loaded by the boot cd when
   appropriate, including the mptscsih driver for the scsi controllers
   in dell 1850s
the cd worked fine otherwise because it successfully read modules.pcimap
which is generated based on the PCI_ENTRY fields in the drivers. For some
reason, the mptscsih driver DOESN'T have a PCI_ENTRY in its driver,
so it doesn't show up there. fedora's pcitable (from hwdata) has
it, which is why the two sources need to be merged.
