    BIG UP TO YOU ALL from a linux/ubuntu fog newbie



  • Hello Tom,
    Thank you for the kernel

    ted33,

    can you try my kernel:

  • [quote=“Eric, post: 2726, member: 83”]I posted my custom 3.3 Kernel in another thread. It resolved the snowy screen issue that I had on some of my Dells. Maybe it will help you too? Below is what I posted in another thread:

    I recently made my own Kernel as a proof of concept. Its based of the Linux 3.3 Kernel and it resolved a lot of problems for me. Its attached in my post here. Be sure to backup any of your existing Kernels in /tftpboot/fog/kernel/

    Let me know if it works for you.

    hi,
    it is possible to have your file .config ?
    thank you



  • Thanks Eric for the image. That did the trick.
    Thanks chad-bisd for the commands. Made it very easy to change what image file to use.

    you need to have a file called “bzImage” exactly, capitalization is important in the Linux world. And what error are you still getting. You need to be specific since you’ve gotten multiple issues in this thread.



  • Its actally the same name bzimage. Thats what was in this threads file lol. I am still getting that same error though. Also another quick note i am not able to pxe boot now to my machines. I dont know if its because now i have bzimage and bzimage.default in the kernal folder of tftp. I am really new to linux so i am getting use to this.

    [COLOR=#000000]ok. I fixed the command in the previous post. switching from MS to Linux a lot, I get the commands backwards (dir and ls especially). And you’ll need to substitute the real name of the file you downloaded for bzImage-newfile.[/COLOR]



  • Thanks. I have done step by step what you said but i am stuck at the copy command when i type
    sudo copy ~/Desktop/bzImage-newfile /tftpboot/fog/kernel/bzImage

    I get sudo:copy: command not found

    Ive also tried taking out the -newfile part but i get the same error. i did also take the / out before tftpboot but i got permission denied.

    make a copy of the default bzImage
    [CODE]sudo cp /tftpboot/fog/kernel/bzImage /tftpboot/fog/kernel/bzImage.default[/CODE]
    OPTIONAL: make the copy of the image immutable so you don’t accidentally overwrite it
    [CODE]sudo chattr +i /tftpboot/fog/kernel/bzImage.default[/CODE]
    download the kernel you want to use, save it anywhere you can get to it, like your Desktop.
    copy the new kernel to the tftpboot location
    [CODE]sudo cp ~/Desktop/bzImage-newfile /tftpboot/fog/kernel/bzImage[/CODE]
    change the owner,group, and permissions on the file just as a precaution
    [CODE]
    sudo chown fog:root /tftpboot/fog/kernel/bzImage
    sudo chmod 644 /tftpboot/fog/kernel/bzImage
    [/CODE]



  • Should i use copy and paste the bziamge kernel and overwrite the existing one. how should i go about this. Please help.

    Can your kernel replace the one that loaded with FOG .32 installation or would it be best to just associate it with a particular PC model? I was having problems with a Dell 990 that has an AMD Radeon HD 6450 video card. When I used your kernal, I got past all the other errors and snow and actually created an image - but I have yet to deploy it. Thanks for your help.[/quote]



  • Thank you eric! After countless hours messing around with kernel updates I decided to give yours a try. It worked and now allows me to boot into fog with our Lenovo desktops and laptops. Props to you!



  • This definitely worked for me as well!
    Thank you for this solution. I have 40 of these bad boys to image and I’m trying to impress my boss with fog. This will go a long way towards that aim.

    Would you mind filling us in on what mods you made to this kernel?

    I’m going to do some toying with the kernel this weekend.

    Thanks!

  • Than you Eric, your kernel worked great with our x130e, as well as our x120e.

  • [quote=“Robert Erbes, post: 2671, member: 827”]I got that with some of my first images. What OS you using for FOG?[/quote]
    The server is running ubuntu, and the notebook is win7.

    I’ve not had an issue imaging any other makes/models of notebook or desktop
