• I’m trying to Register a Optiplex 3030 AIO which is not on the compatibility list yet. I get to the FOG Menu and I do a full registration. It quickly fails which appears to CHuck to be a KERNEL PANIC.

    I’m using a 0.32 FOG on UBUNTU 12.04 LTS 32 bit.

    Now, I’ve never over the years needed to change kernels, so I was treading lightly. I went to KERNEL UPDATES and picked ver 3.14.2- 32 bit. I figured the latest is the best choice?? I renamed it bzImage3030 and then I went to SERVER Settings/ TFTP Server / FOG_TFTP_PXE_KERNEL and changed the path to fog/kernel/bzImage3030.

    Doing this allowed that new kernel to be used, but it still failed. I then saw Tom Elliott’s tag line in an earlier thread.

    I followed the suggestion:

    [FONT=Times New Roman][COLOR=#000000][SIZE=2][FONT=sans-serif][B]FOG 0.32 or earlier.[/B][/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR][/FONT]
    [FONT=Times New Roman][COLOR=#000000][SIZE=1][FONT=sans-serif]Code:[/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR][/FONT]
    [COLOR=#000000][SIZE=1][FONT=monospace]cd /tftpboot/fog/kernel mv bzImage bzImage.orig.<CURRENTDATE> wget -O bzImage --no-check-certificate [url]https://mastacontrola.com/fogboot/kernel/bzImage32[/url] chown -R fog:root /tftpboot​[/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#000000][SIZE=1][FONT=monospace]THe last line (chown) did not work, BUT I am now able to register the Optiplex3030 and pushed an image out to it! YEAH[/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#000000][SIZE=1][FONT=monospace]My question is what kernel did I pick up?? I’m worry a bit on how it will affect my existing clients. CAn anyone shed some light on this?[/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#000000]Thanks for all your work![/COLOR]

    Yes, on My summer list is to move both of my 0.32 servers up to the latest.

    Thanks for the help everyone.

  • You have the latest that’s on my server. 0.32 is very old so you don’t see all the real updates.

    Beyond that, that kernel should do the trick for you.


  • [quote=“Tom Elliott, post: 45267, member: 7271”]The location should be
    [code]file /tftpboot/fog/kernel/bzImage[/code][/quote]

    DOH! Now I understand.

    Result:

    /tftpboot/fog/kernel/bzImage: Linux kernel x86 boot executable bzImage, version 3.19.1 (root@debian64) #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Mar 10 18:46:02 EDT 2, RO-rootFS, swap_dev 0x6, Normal VGA

    So, the Kernel Updates within the Fog server only go up to 3.14,… So What I have now is that latest? 3.19.1 ?

    thanks

  • [quote=“Uncle Frank, post: 45263, member: 28116”]Run this command to see what kernel version a particular bzImage is:
    [CODE]file /path/to/bzImage[/CODE][/quote]

    Tried:
    /tftpboot/fog/kernel$ file /path/to/bzImage

    Returned:

    /path/to/bzImage: ERROR: cannot open `/path/to/bzImage’ (No such file or directory)

    Do I need to be in another directory? OR did I mis-interpret the command?
