PXE booting TFTPD:can't open file

(1/2) > >>

newbie000:
Hi all,

I have TC installed on USB drive (fluxbox GUI) and it can be booted succesfully. I used that booted TC to run terminal server...

When i PXE boot from other PC, it is connected to PXE server, got an ip, but there are about 10 or more line messages on the screen:
Trying to load pxelinux.cfg/....
Trying to load pxelinux.cfg/....

Trying to load pxelinux.cfg/default..


On the PXE terminal the message from tftpd is can't open file..has gone through this thread http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php?topic=11745.15 but the boot_file or bootfile both doesn't work for me...

The PXE boot result in text based mode only, no graphic...

Is there any other setting that i have to fixed?
Thanks before..

These are OK. The client checks for a specific config file, and since it doesn't exist, falls back to the default config.

I assume this is your real issue? It's also working as intended, as from 4.2 the GUI are extensions too. If you'd like to PXE the default TinyCore gui, you can either use the various network options to load the extensions, or share an initrd that has them builtin (see the programming section for maro's script on creating it).

Hello there,

After i looked up at the pxelinux.cfg/default <= the boot options has no options to define the GUI or vga options, so i added options
"cde showapps desktop=fluxbox vga=792"

During the boot there are erros saying no file found for libraries like libpng.so and libjpeg...

Are those extensions/libraries that i should share on network as per you said ?

Thanks before.

The script to include them might be easier to use than network shares:

I'm curious, where did fluxbox come from to the PXE-booted client? (or whatever extension caused your missing libpng error)

newbie000:
Hi there,

I tried the fluxbox boot both from CDROM and installed hdisk, none of them work...

The script stops at copy2fs.lst. I have no ../cde/copy2fs.lst <= could you list tcz files i should put on copy2fs.lst file ?

Thanks!
