@Wayne-Workman Thanks for that. Yes, running Ubuntu 12. In a catch 22, would need to wipe this server, but running osticket for tech ticket support. will have to bring that down to install newer os. But also need to get these computers imaged before the new school year starts. Going to have to bite the bullet I guess. I do have a few older pcs that might be able to handle the task too. Decisions, decisions.

RE: Kernel Download missing from Kernel update page
Kernel Download missing from Kernel update page
Trying to download kernel 4.1.2 so my Optiplex 5040s will work properly. When I go to the kernel update page, there’s a list of several kernels from 2015, but no download links. Only the older ones from 2014 and earlier have download links. Anyone have a working link to the 4.1.2 kernel download? Need to get these systems imaged.
RE: New install - image upload stalls at Using Hard Disk
So, I found a very odd but simple solution. Apparently hitting the Enter key on the keyboard advanced it to the next screen, and started uploading. Odd, but it worked.
New install - image upload stalls at Using Hard Disk
Had to reinstall ubuntu and fog after some major network issues. The system worked prior to the issues without a problem.
System is Ubuntu 10.04 , Fog 1.2.0, on an Optiplex 960 desktop.
On fog install, I left the mysql database passwords blank, didn’t change them yet.
Updated schema, all good to go, linked my external USB hard drive where the images are kept and mounted it. Created new image settings in fog, linked to the proper folders on the external hard drive.
Registered host, sent a command to upload an image to one of the image folders I linked prior, gets through to the “Using Hard Disk” message, just before going to next screen for the upload progress, and freezes there.
I am certain I missed something fairly simple, like changing the database username and passwords, but the config file in fog/commons is missing in 1.2.0. Any ideas where that’s moved to? Also, anything else I’m missing to make the upload work?
Fog 1.0.1 and Acer Aspire V5-123-3466
So I’ve scoured the forums here regarding cloning Acer netbooks, and couldn’t find an answer.
I am able to get an image from a netbook uploaded, no problems. When I go to clone based on that image, everything connects through, and it goes to check the hd disk status, and reboots, marking the task as complete, and obviously is not the case. The screen flashes by in a millisecond and can’t grab any sort of information or error in time.
I really would like to use fog with these netbooks as we have 20 of them for our school. Fog works great everywhere else, from custom built rigs that still exist here to Dell Optiplex 745 and up.
Any thoughts on what I can try/check to make these computers actually image properly?

[quote=“Tom Elliott, post: 29273, member: 7271”]fixparts is also a part of the init files.[/quote]
So, it can be run from the fog prompt? Is this only going to happen with uploading an image, or will it happen for the cloning process to? Getting ready to build images for the new school year.
RE: Unable to move /images/dev - How to change the default folder creator?
yup tried that too, doesnt fix the issue. The problem is the workflow - client computer set to upload a new image - folder is created under /images/dev, then is transported to its final spot /images/(image name) . This normally works flawlessly. Yet, it seems that because “root” is the owner of the temporary folder, it wont allow “fog” to copy it and then remove it from its temporary spot. Since this process in fog is consecutive and unattended, there’s no time to pause and chmod or chown the folder.
Basically I need to make “fog” be the users who creates the temporary image folder. Yet, right now, its “root” who has that honor. I need to figure out where I can assign “fog” for the folder creation process.
Unable to move /images/dev - How to change the default folder creator?
I’ve scoured the internet and have tried many solutions to my “unable to move /images/dev/(macaddress) to /images/(image folder)” issue, to no avail.
After poking and prodding, I stumbled across something. The new image folder in /images/dev has a different owner when the folder is created. These temporary folders are created by “root”. When I chowned -R the folder to the user “fog”, the “unable to move” issue went away.
Yet, every time I upload a new image, “root” owns the file in in /images/dev, which causes the issue all over again.
How do I assign the default creator to “fog”? I’m not sure if this is in one of the fog installation configs, or if its a general linux thing. Fog version 0.32 and Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.
