• Is anyone else able to download the latest kernal because I keep getting an error and it just refuses to download.

  • I find it easier to just sudo the moving and renaming commands to get the job done instead of changing the permissions

    move the new kernel in place
    sudo mv /WHERE/YOUR/DOWNLOAD/IS/SAVED/kernelfilename /tftpboot/fog/kernel

    rename the old kernel
    sudo mv /tftpboot/fog/kernel/bzImage /tftpboot/fog/kernel/bzImage.old

    rename the new kernel
    sudo mv /tftpboot/fog/kernel/kernelfilename /tftpboot/fog/kernel/bzImage

  • You could also use an FTP client to update your files. Use the “pxe boot .iso” guide in the tutorials forum and log into the server using an FTP client and update / transfer the files this way if you are not comfortable with doing it as kevin mentioned.

  • The easiest way, but not the safest would be to type sudo chmod 777 “folder path” for for example sudo chmod 777 /tftpboot/fog/kernel

    The default fog password can be found by logging into the web server the going to Other Information > FOG Settings and the password would be the same as the following field, FOG_TFTP_FTP_PASSWORD down towards the bottom of the page.

  • Sorry I am a linux noob how would I chmod the folder to give me permission or what is the default fog user name password?

  • Thanks for the help.

  • You need to do this:

    1. 3.2.4 can be downloaded from here, [url]http://sourceforge.net/projects/freeghost/files/Kernels/Kernel-3.2.4.core/Kernel-3.2.4.core/download[/url]

    2. Then you need to backup bzImage in /tftpboot/fog/kernel. so I renamed mine bzImage.backup (If this doesn’t work, either log into the computer under the FOG account, or chmod the folder)

    3. When you copy the 3.2.4 kernel to this location rename it to bzImage (note that the case is important) and you should be all set.
