do we have netbooting working?
« on: February 21, 2013, 10:45:40 AM »
Hello all!

I just bought a mk802 unit with 1GB of RAM and was thinking if I can do a network with many of these rather tha using x86 thin clients.

It would be one mk802 for the Core as a server and other mk802 units netbooting to it.

The ARMCore can already do this?

Sorry if this is a little dumb question... It's my first ARM device since the HP Jornada 720...

Thanks for the attention!

The server side should work, but I don't know if u-boot supports PXE.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Hello Curaga!

I saw these two pages about u-boot and PXE:
https://blueprints.launchpad.net/linaro-ubuntu/+spec/linaro-platforms-o-uboot-pxe-support
and
http://rsalveti.wordpress.com/2011/07/11/net-booting-with-tftp-and-pxe-with-pandaboard/

English is not my mother language but as I could see, the PXE boot in u-boot must be enabled to work properly, right?

If I am right, how to enable that?

Thanks!
