Can only add 1 entry to FOF pxe selection menu



  • Can anyone please explain why I am only able to add one entry to FOG pxe selection menu when I go in and edit the default pxelinux.cfg file?

    I added an entry/menu label for both DSL and Knoppix, however only one of them displays correctly.

    Thanks,
    dabob



  • Hi Tom,

    I put END TEXT as you suggested and and all seems good now, I even put it back to END TEXT and was able to recreate to problem.

    I really appreciate your help and prompt responses, now I’m able to carry on with my learning on linux/Ubuntu and FOG.

    i guess that’s what my professor meant when he said "pay close attention to details when working, especially with text based config files/programs.

    Thanks;
    dabob

    Then I’d try getting rid of the TEXT HELP and END TEXT Bits as you have nothing underneath it anyway.

    Maybe try the following lines to your /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default
    [code]
    LABEL DSL LIVE CD
    MENU MASTER PASSWD password
    kernel fog/DSL/memdisk
    append iso initrd=fog/DSL/dsl-4.11.rc1.iso raw
    MENU LABEL DSL LIVE CD
    TEXT HELP
    DSL Linux Bootable ISO
    ENDTEXT

    LABEL KNOPPIX LIVE CD
    MENU MASTER PASSWD password
    kernel fog/linux-iso/memdisk
    append iso initrd=fog/linux-iso/KNOPPIX_V7.2.0CD-2013-06-16-EN.iso raw
    MENU LABEL KNOPPIX LIVE CD
    TEXT HELP
    Knoppix Bootable ISO
    ENDTEXT[/code]

    Last thing:

    END TEXT Should actually read ENDTEXT <-- Sorry I didn’t notice this sooner.
    Hopefully this will help.



  • [quote=“Tom Elliott, post: 19765, member: 7271”]I’m only going out on a limb here, but it seems, based on looking at the configuration, you’re not seeing the menu option for DSL? Is this correct?

    It’s because of the line that says:
    [code]MENU LABELDSL LIVE CD[/code]
    It should say:
    [code]MENU LABEL DSL LIVE CD[/code][/quote]

    Hi again Tom,

    Here is a screenshot of the menu, notice how the code for the KNOPPIX LIVE CD is being displayed and located in the lower right hand corner.

    NOTE: I made the change to the spacing of LABEL and DSL that you pointed out, however the results are the same as indicated in the screenshot attachment.

    Thanks,
    dabob

  • Hi Tom, and thanks for the prompt response.

    Here is the configuration below, I believe it has something to do with wrong formatting on my end. However, I’m very new to FOG and am not exactly sure. I will try to post a screen shot somehow of the menu after pxe boot, but I’m running ubuntu on VB VM which holds all of FOG services, then I have another VB VM that I use to pxe the FOG VM. Both running on Windows 7 host.

    How do I screen shot of the pxe client VM while in FOG pxe selection menu?
