Ubuntu 17.04 - No kernel modules were found



  • I’ve got FOG 1.4.4 installed and seems to be working fine. I’m trying to add a menu option for booting the Ubuntu 17.04 installer. ISO has been extracted, NFS is working and I can PXE boot a VM into the Ubuntu installer. The first thing it tells me is that it’s unable to find any kernel modules and that installation will likely fail.

    Here’s my menu parameters:

    kernel nfs://${fog-ip}/images/ubuntu17.04/install/vmlinuz || read void
    initrd nfs://${fog-ip}/images/ubuntu17.04/install/initrd.gz || read void
    imgargs vmlinuz root=/dev/nfs boot=live netboot=nfs nfsroot=${fog-ip}:/images/ubuntu17.04/install locale=en_US.UTF-8 keyboard-configuration/layoutcode=us mirror/country=US
    boot || read void
    

    I’ve tried it first via HTTP, hit this same situation. So I searched around for a couple days and everything seemed to be using NFS. So I got that setup and doesn’t appear to be giving any errors that I can see.

    @clickwir Any news on this?

    @clickwir I reckon you need to use the Ubuntu netinstaller ISO here: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/netboot/17.04/

    But still I think FOG is not the best choice for what you are trying to do…

    edit: Why is my reply ABOVE yours? This is backwards.
    edit2: No, this is worse. It’s below my original post but above the first reply. This is worse than backwards.

    Because the first post is the topic. Why would you want me to scroll all the way down the to bottom of the page/last page just to get to the most recent post? I think that’s backwards. I want the latest response to be on top.



  • Well, it’s the installer though. Wouldn’t it want ALL modules?

  • @clickwir This below link shows how to use kernel modules with iPXE:
    http://ipxe.org/cmd/kernel
    I imagine all you need to do is figure out what modules need loaded - you could probably live-boot the Ubuntu disk and just do a lsmod to list the active modules it’s using - then add those modules into your iPXE code.
