Default Installing over network

HI!

Quoting Slack-Moehrle <mailinglists@mailnewsrss.com>:

At bootpromt say "linux askmethod", and make your config
(http://dokuwiki.nausch.org/doku.php?id=centos:centos_5_internetinstallation).
O.K. The wiki is in German, but it should useful for your
installation. For further support, say hello!

ttyl,

Hi Jason,

Check out this on my blog, boot from web: http://csmorley.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!990C0A249621766!157.entry

Maybe this will help?

ok, so I am going to take a wild guess and assume that you have never
used sparc hardware, ever.

Firstly, the sparc port isnt all done - or supported. But it would be
awesome to get some traction around that and actually get it finished.

The first step is to get the installer images into the machine, and I
dont think OBP will let you do that. You will need some sort of a local
network based boot process. The one I use at home is semi-documented here :

http://www.karan.org/blog/index.php/2008/03/01/network-booting-sparc-obp-machines

I know some of the text is getting cut off on the right side of the
post, need to do something about that :/ but you should be able to get
most of the content.

Also, as a matter of interest ( and to document it ) what sort of
hardware are you installing to ?

older sparcs use a different network boot sequence than PCs, they do NOT
use bootp or PXE. rather, they use RARP -> bootparam -> tftp ->. nfs


Solaris refers to this process as jumpstart. at the openboot prompt
("Ok"), you simply enter `boot net`, the host does a RARP to get the
bootparam server's IP, the bootparam service provides the host with the
TFTP configuration information, and the host then gets the boot loader
from tftp, and then this generally loads the rest of the OS from NFS.

Once the installer is running from the tftp images, you can install over
http ( and therefore over the internet as well ), but you do need a
local tftp setup. Also, some OBP's let you use dhcp instead of rarp (
although I'm still using rarp ).

yeah, newer openboot support PXE(dhcp), but the OP said Ultra 10, which
I suspect predates this.

Since redhat does not accept sparc-specific patches it is simply to
frustrating to do the sparc thing. And what is the furture of the sparc
architecture in general?

Are redhat really refusing sparc specific patches ? I know the fedora
sparc guys are moderately active, and there is sparc support in anaconda
/ yum / rpm and glibc..

I'm looking at it from the point of view that there is a lot of sparc
hardware around, and CentOS, with its long life span is an ideal
candidate to run on there - also given that the base does not change
that much during the lifeterm, the amount of engineering that needs
doing to make CentOS/sparc happen isnt that much, and once done - may
not be too much of work.

If there is momentum around the idea and there are a few people willing
to take up the efforts required I am quite happy to work with and make
sure that a CentOS Sparc effort is possible. But I dont want to take on
the whole thing myself - and my own sparc experience is quite limited (
although I have a blade1k and a netra 240, both of which I will make
available to the effort ).
