Its tres crappy .. but apparently my soekris is acting up.. And I somehow locked myself out.. apparently.. Although I’m not really sure if I did lock myself out or if there is really something wrong – hardware side..
I’m dreading the prospect – in this very busy period of trying to get our house together – of booting it PXE style to check the config..
The disk boots.. Grub loads; Grub boots; The system tells me its “Starting up …”; Lots of disk activity
And THAT is where the whole things stops doing anything 🙂 No serial connection output (probably because I didnt put the proper stty line in grub waay back) and no network reactions either. And I cant seem to edit the grub config over the serial connection. (weird)
So I’ll have to boot it up with a live cd to check where shit goes awry and solve what needs solving. pfffsh. My pxe serv is in the attic & I DONT feel like getting it out from there right today.
On the other hand.. The desk is set up as the ideal lab RIGHT NOW and If I need to set it up again later .. …
Oooh! Devious thought 🙂 I wonder if PXE boot is enabled by default over wifi on laptops.. (dont think so) It d be extremely fun & devious to have a constant wireless pxe serv running in a public space with lots of people booting their stuff. & then boot them into an extremely light ubuntu 😀 teehee! It wouldnt work all that well, considering the massive amount of data involved in loading an ubuntu live cd.. but none the less.. its an entertaining thought 🙂
Edit: Ooh! I just realised I have another option to get to my box 🙂 Lemme try that next! – No such luck 😦 PXE it is 😦
