  • Hi,

    With this mboard FOG is unable to use HDD or LAN. I’ve tried the newer kernels and they don’t work.

    Does anyone have any workarounds or custom kernels for this board?

    Specs:

    LAN: 1 x Realtek GbE LAN chip (10/100/1000 Mbit)
    DISK: SATA HDD

    Thanks,

  • The kernel published in my previous post does not work for me. I may be doing something wrong, but it did not work on three different computers I tried to PXE boot.

    I found this driver that is not upstream yet but this is for the Qualcom/Atheros ALX series.

    [url]http://www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/compat-wireless-3-stable/[/url]

    It appears that this is for the 3.6.x series kernel. I’m going to download this kernel and compile it with the latest driver listed on the link above.

    Wish me luck…

    EDIT: well crap, I have to look up how to compile this module into the new kernel. More later…
    I also did find that, under ubuntu, there is the “wireless-compat” package(s) which may contain alx drivers.

    [quote=“yogipaolo, post: 10395, member: 61”]Another reason why I love this community. I might be using a slightly different gigabyte mobo than you, but your board is likely to have a qualcom/atheros ar8161/8165 chip in it. This chip apparently is bluttooth as well as lan.

    A kind soul has posted this link with a direct link to a bzimage download:

    I’m going to try this.

    I’m also busily compililng a 3.7.5 kernel for the hell of it. I’m going to see if I can use it as an alternative kernel. FOG has the ability to boot specific kernels for specific hosts (I think). This is configurable under host management >> host kernel[/quote]

  • [quote=“rightshift, post: 10200, member: 3197”]To clarify. I can PXE boot on the machine in question - I can access fog menu - but I cannot do any inventory options as they simply don’t work. I thus have no way to deploy my image to these machines.

    Thanks,

    I am having the same issue. It hangs on “attempting to send inventory” and scrolls down one line at a time til the screen turns black…

    I added the machine to the inventory manually and got an upload task to start, but when it comes time to pull the image, i get the message “rpc error netowork not available”.

    So why would the LAN work enough to PXE boot but not to use NFS. I’m thinking a custom kernel might solve this, but I’d need to figure out what is going wrong first. The pressure is on at work and my boss is looking stressed, so I need to get the thing backed up. I"m going to use clonezilla and keep the image on a separate HD.

    I’ll keep you posted if I figure anything out…
