FOG 0.33b Now Considered Release Candidate


  • Senior Developer

    While the labeling will remain the same (e.g. FOG 0.33b) Chuck, the Development Team – no particular order (BPSTravis, Lee Rowlett, Jaymes Driver, Junkhacker, Fernando Gietz, jbsclm, and myself) are re-releasing FOG 0.33b as a Release Candidate for the next version of FOG.

    There is probably some more bugs, so I encourage all to please use and test. While it’s still not a full on release, we need more input from more sources, so We from the development team need some help and feedback from You, the community.

    Thank you,



  • Um Yes :)

    Um, what?

    What “additional” install did you perform? You mean it’s downloading a file to your system? It sounds to me like php wasn’t installed properly and rather than taking you to the gui, apache is just sending you the file you’re requesting because it doesn’t know how to process the php.

  • Hi !

    I want to use MariaDB instead of MySQL but I can’t because the installation script automatically force to installe mysql-server and mysql-client packets.

    Please add an option to skip the installation of MySQL or propose to add repository and install MariaDB.

    SOLVED !
    I modified the list of packages who are installing (in lib/ubuntu/config.sh) :
    packages=“apache2 php5 php5-json php5-gd php5-cli php5-mysql php5-curl isc-dhcp-server tftpd-hpa tftp-hpa nfs-kernel-server vsftpd net-tools wget xinetd sysv-rc-conf tar gzip build-essential cpp gcc g++ m4 htmldoc lftp openssh-server php-gettext clamav-freshclam”;
    #ORI : packages=“apache2 php5 php5-json php5-gd php5-cli php5-mysql php5-curl mysql-server mysql-client isc-dhcp-server tftpd-hpa tftp-hpa nfs-kernel-server vsftpd net-tools wget xinetd sysv-rc-conf tar gzip build-essential cpp gcc g++ m4 htmldoc lftp openssh-server php-gettext clamav-freshclam”;


    Automatic refresh on [I][url]http://fogserver/fog/management/index.php?node=tasks[/url][/I] not working when a task is in progress.

    this article and the restoring article do not exist in the list on the Knowledge_Base page.
    It might be good if we could get them added. ( I know new users can use the search function to find them and that they are in the main FOG Guide)

  • [quote=“Jaymes Driver, post: 26625, member: 3582”]Yes it is possible, the guide can be found on the wiki with all the other guides and walkthroughs available for Fog. However, there have been a number of changes since 0.32 and we highly recommend a back up and fresh install.[/quote]

    [quote=“Rick Cooper, post: 26571, member: 22803”]One, initial question. I was using the 33b version and just upgraded to the git version which was supposedly 33b but shows 1.0.0 on the pages and in the changelog. The change log states all images must be re-uploaded but does that pertain only to the 32 version or also to the 33b version?

    Also, anywhere that might return zero hosts is throwing an error stating an issue with the foreach in getHostCount, first place I saw it was in the group management section and I assume it was because of the membership count column. Also when you edit a group without current members it throws an error at line 240 in GroupManagementPage.class.php and this is, again , caused by trying to use an undefined or empty value in a foreach. I fixed the issues by validating anything returned by calling ->get(‘hosts’) with is_array()[/quote]
    Rick the 0.33b is technically no more. We moved from the low versioning we’ve all been used to for some time to X.X.X versioning most softwares follow. The 1.0.0 you see is still the same just a different number is displayed. Also, I hope the array issues you were seeing are corrected now. I added a lot of checking to the system so all should be good on that side as we’ll.

    Yes, please just back up your required info and scrub out 0.32 . Your life will be easier I promise.

    [quote=“Sharaz, post: 26463, member: 23879”]i really like .33. are there instructions for updating .32 fogservers to .33? (or .33b to .33?)

    im building up a lot of images (consider that a compliment to a great project!) and i dont want to start over with a new server! hehe[/quote]

    Yes, the wiki is choked full of walkthroughs and guides that touch base on upgrading, installing, and general use of FOG. I don’t know why everyone feels that this is the front line for questions, but the Wiki is the BEST place to learn about fog and how to use it.

    My FIRM recommendation is to back up your /images folder and database and start with a fresh install for 0.33

    That page has the exact commands you will need to install FOG from Linux.
    Nothing on Linux is a .exe file.

    The Kernels are installed automatically from the web UI using the kernel update page.

    Then just set a host to use that kernel name under that hosts settings page
