Updated version of TAILS

Postby wetwilly » 18 Apr 2013, 15:07

Hello.

I've been struggling for a while now to get the more up to date versions of TAILS to run when booting over PXE. I've come so far as to get TAILS to boot ;) but somehow I think it fails to mount some directories and cannot launch TOR and some other tools correctly.

ATM I'm using tails 0.17.2 and this is the tails.menu entries

Code: Select all

LABEL TAILSLIVE
MENU LABEL ^Tails Live 0.17.2
KERNEL er/plugins/tails/vmlinuz
INITRD er/plugins/tails/initrd.img

APPEND boot=live live-config netboot=nfs nfsroot=10.0.1.4:/tank/pxe/tftpboot/er/shares/tails/ ramdisk_size=200000 nolock noswap live-media=removable noprompt timezone=Etc/UTC block.events_dfl_poll_msecs=1000 nopersistent


Any help in getting it to launch properly would be highly appreciated.

The first thing to do is to check that your NFS exports are configured to share:
/tank/pxe/tftpboot/er/shares/tails/

I'll try and create a new version for Tails during this weekend.
I will upload it when I'm done.

The NFS is working for sure, I am using lots of your wonderful plugins and they all work perfect except for the tails one.

macbook:~ seb$ mount 10.0.1.4:/tank/pxe/tftpboot/er/shares/tails/ /tmp/tails/

Code: Select all

macbook:~ seb$ ls -lah /tmp/tails/*
-rw-r--r--  1 1000  1000    70B  4 Apr  2012 /tmp/tails/filelist.txt

/tmp/tails/live:
total 1690510
drwxr-xr-x  2 1000  1000     5B 17 Apr 02:48 .
drwxr-xr-x  3 1000  1000     4B 26 Feb 16:57 ..
-r--r--r--  1 1000  1000    37K 17 Apr 02:45 filesystem.packages
-r--r--r--  1 1000  1000   825M 17 Apr 02:45 filesystem.squashfs


cat /tmp/tails/filelist.txt

Code: Select all

.:
filelist.txt
live

./live:
filesystem.packages
filesystem.squashfs


My guess is that something new is needed in the append syntax, because I get the whole Tails "live-session" to start with X and all but when I start the browser it is unable to browse the deepweb because the TOR binary fails to start correctly. And I'm totally lost why that happens...

I've tried running Tails in various configurations and there seems to be an issue with the NIC.
When I load it from the ISO file it works.
I get the same errors on start up about the sys and proc mounts so that doesn't seem to be the issue.

Have you gotten the NIC to work properly?
