is it possible to update the kernal whilst using putty to log onto the fog box ?
Hope we can get your web gui up again as well. Please see my signature on where to find the apache error logs. Valuable information will be in there…
Well to answer your question you can get the kernel updates for 1.x from the sourceforge site. https://sourceforge.net/projects/freeghost/files/Kernels/
These files go into /var/www/fog/service/ipxe. You will want to rename the original bzImage files. And then copy the new 3.x kernels into that location.
If you want to see the current version of the bzImage file you can use this command:
file bzImagethat will print out the FOS kernel info (FOS == Fog client OS, the os that captures and deploys images)
yes kernel updates that captures and deploys images on the target computers
@ChrisRaff OK, what caused your FOG web gui to break?
And also for clarity when we are talking about kernel updates we are talking about the FOG kernel that captures and deploys images on the target computers and not the kernel that the FOG server runs on, right?
Using fog 1.1.2
Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS (GNU/Linux 3.13.0-54-generic x86_64)
My web gui configuration is not working right now
Can we get a little more info on your current setup? What version of fog are you using to start with.
To answer your question, yes its possible. But depending on the version of fog you are using kernel updating is built into the web gui.
