Custom iPXE menu background image not showing up
I am trying to change the background image on my Fog server’s iPXE boot menu and all I get is a black background when the menu boots up.
I have a custom 800x600 image uploaded to my /var/www/fog/service/ipxe directory.
The image name is entered correctly in the Fog PXE Boot Menu Configuration under FOG Configuration.
I am using Fog 1.3.0-RC-5 on Ubuntu 14.04
Permissions solved the issue. Fog had access to the folder, but when I pasted this new image in it, it needed the permissions for it.
Thanks for the help!
@george1421 I meant to follow up a bit sooner with my wiseguy comment but work called.
I just confirmed that the original file is 800x600x32 bit png file. Can you confirm that your image is in the same format and a png file? And will you include a screen shot of the fog settings where you changed the image file?
Lastly will you do this with your browser, open this url (but replace the values with your site specific ones).
http://<fog_ip_server>/fog/service/ipxe/<image_file>.pngmake sure you can access the image from the fog server.
@PageTown Can you verify that navigating to the url manually works?
Also, can you check the permissions of the image?
@PageTown That screen would scare the hell out of me first thing in the morning.
BTW: There are also capabilities to update/change the font colors. The standard text colors may get lost in that picture.
This is the image. It’s a PNG file. 800x600 at 72dpi.
@PageTown What kind of image do you use?? Please upload here so we can check…
