• I would like to know if the project was closed, as the last update was in 2020?

    @luiztpd The rebuilding ipxe tutorial is here: https://forums.fogproject.org/topic/15826/updating-compiling-the-latest-version-of-ipxe

    Make sure you have the latest FOS Linux kernel -> Web UI->Fog Configuration-> Kernel update. You will want 5.10.x series of kernels for both x64 and x32 systems.

    Lastly you can update to the dev branch (suggested if you need to deploy Win10 20H2 or later versions of windows) to get the fixes for those OS’) all you need to do is change into the git repository you downloaded then do the following:

    git pull
    git checkout dev-branch
    git pull
    cd bin
    ./installfog.sh
    

    That will update your fog install to the pre-release version of 1.5.10. That release is stable and will most likely be what 1.5.10 will be released as.

    Now when 1.5.10 is released you will need to switch back to the master branch this way.

    git pull
    git checkout master
    git pull
    cd bin
    ./installfog.sh
    

  • @george1421 Thanks for the reply, I’m glad to hear that the project is not finished. Where can I find this tutorial?

    @luiztpd No the project is not closed. The developers are not as aggressively sending out updates with new releases. Right now the project is in a maintenance mode. The developers are working on the 1.5.10 release that will be out in early spring 2022.

    The dev-branch is where the release candidate for 1.5.10 currently lives its something line 1.5.9.114 or later. The kernels are up to date with the latest hardware. The only thing we are seeing that “needs” to be updated right now is iPXE to support the latest hardware, but we have a tutorial on how to update that for the FOG Admins to use.
