I started on my first K12LTSP lab setup this week and I am having an issue with the first client. To the best of my knowledge the server is setup properly. The client is a Compaq Deskpro 4000 and I am using a Kingston NIC (KNE111TX . . . i think) with the tulip driver boot disk. The initial startup appears to be o.k. and the client is getting an IP via dhcp and starting to talk to the serv. Bbut then it hangs forever at this point in the boot process:

doing the pivot_root
nfs: server 192.168.0.254 not responding, still trying


Here's all the server log says about the connection:

Oct 13 18:29:32 localhost dhcpd: DHCPREQUEST for 192.168.0.253 (192.168.0.254) from 00:c0:f0:63:55:87 via eth0
Oct 13 18:29:32 localhost dhcpd: DHCPACK on 192.168.0.253 to 00:c0:f0:63:55:87 via eth0
Oct 13 18:29:32 localhost rpc.mountd: authenticated mount request from ws253.ltsp:656 for /opt/ltsp/i386 (/opt/ltsp/i386)


Anyone run into this before or having any pointers?

TIA,
John Smith






Looks like your Nic etc is okay.
After the DHYCP it trys to load a kernel, looks like that is not going
Check yout TFTP settings
DHCP server giving the correct path to the kernel?
Kernel in that path on the server?
TFTP service running?

Hope this helps.
