TFTP sub directories not being created

  • Developer

    Upgrading to the latest (6901) I noticed that the two sub dirs ‘efi-i386’ and ‘pxelinux.cfg’ won’t be created in /tftpboot when running the installer because of a screwed check. And even if the check was alright still ‘pxelinux.cfg’ would not be created properly because the awk foo removed the ‘.cfg’ and I ended up with ‘/tftpboot/pxelinux/’… here is a patch proposal (only tested on debian so far):

    diff --git a/lib/common/ b/lib/common/
    index f44598f..313ff6a 100755

    I was able to confirm the issue of the sub directories not being created and after making the proposed suggestions the installer did indeed create the pxelinux.cfg and i386-efi folders. This issue was present on both Ubuntu and Fedora.

    I’m marking this as solved.
