Default Clients Display BusyBox (initramfs) Prompt

I installed a server today and loaded a Dell GX150 Client it booted through PXE. It started the
edubuntu bootsplash for about 2 seconds then fell back to a promt which said the following:

BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 1:
1.1.3-5ubuntu7) Built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands

(initramfs) _


I have no clue where to go from here.

Was it a completely plain install or did you touch anything afterward?

When I upgraded to gutsy I got this and needed to rebuild my ltsp
environment. To do that you would:

sudo mv /opt/ltsp/ /opt/ltsp-old
sudo ltsp-build-client

and then try rebooting the client. If it works, you can probably do

sudo rm -r /opt/ltsp-old

to get rid of the old one.

Hi,
you have set IP for server 192.168.1.255 and you have set netmask 255.255.255.0
but the gateway is 192.168.0.255
???*

I think set address server 192.168.1.254 and gateway 192.168.1.1

And in your dhcpd.conf set the next-server with IP address server
192.168.1.254

Bye

Default Clients Display BusyBox (initramfs) Prompt

2007/12/14, Rohan Smith <rohanthesmith@gmail.com>:
the gateway is for the network with the internet, in the 192.168.0.x subnet but I put my DHCP server on the 192.168.1.X subnet

Both subnets are on different network cards

No problem if you are two network card* but you have set in your
dhcpd.conf
the broadcast address 192.168.1.255 as the Edubuntu server and the option router
192.168.1.1 but in your eth3 the gateway is
192.168.0.255 ????
So if you use a subnet 192.168.0.0/16 (class B) the gateway can be 192.168.0.255 but
the netmask is
255.255.0.0 and broadcast address is 192.168.255.255,* if
you use subnet 192.168.1.0/24 (class C) the gateway can be one address in

192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254 (by convention 1 or 254), the netmask is 255.255.255.0
and the broadcast address is
192.168.1.255.
I think the problem is network config (eth3 or dhcp) not ltsp server

Sorry my English is limited for a long and good response.

Hope help you

Yes, 0 and 255 values are reserved in IP's, so you shouldn't use them on normal adresses, because they have special meaning. If I were you, I would take a look at a good Network Guide, like the
The Linux Network Administrator's Guide
, that can be found on some servers over the Net

Good luck!!

I think set address server 192.168.1.254 and gateway
