System Rescue CD

Postby commguy » 13 Sep 2013, 04:12

I'm having an issue trying to upgrade the System Rescue CD plugin. The intended version 2.5.1 isn't available (2.5.0 is), I've downloaded the latest 3.7.1, and uploaded the files in the usual place. I had to rename rescue32 to rescuecd in order to satisfy the menu system. When that didn't work I renamed the file again and edited the menu. So far all efforts produce an error. Kernel Panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

I'm not entirely sure what I'm doing wrong here. I'm currently downloading 2.5.0 to try but I would like to be able to use the newer version.

I downloaded 2.5.0 and got the same issue. It is happening on multiple machines. I've tried 3 so far all with different processors.

I get past the part I was stuck on but now I'm getting forbidden from my http server. I need to troubleshoot.

What was I doing wrong?

found it, the sysrcd.md5 and sysrcd.dat files must be in /tftpboot/er/shares/http/sysrescue/

you have probably setup your http server not according to our installation instructions.
I would recommend going over the configuration so that you won't have any more issues in the future with http plugins.

I didn't even notice this when I set it up but erpxe-httpd.conf doesn't exist in the erpxe-1.1.tar. Would that be what I'm missing?

If that is the case then all plugins will be directed to /tftpboot/er/shares/http/ as that is the symlink from /var/www/er

Edit: I changed the symlink to /tftpboot/er/shares/ and it works after moving the folder back. Not sure where the symlink came from to begin with. The sh file in the doc folder points to /var/www/html/er as the link and I know I didn't run that.

hmmm...

The erpxe-httpd.conf is a replacement for the link script we have included in older releases:

Code: Select all

ln -s /tftpboot/er/shares /var/www/html/er


the link might still be effective for users that don't use Apache as their web server.

I get it. I'm wondering tho, since /var/www/html/ doesn't exist, will this be a problem?

and where is erpxe-httpd.conf? It isn't in the erpxe-1.1 or 1.06 tar files.

'/var/www/html/' is the default folder for Apache in CentOS.
Are you using Debian?

as for erpxe-httpd.conf it seems to be missing from the package so here it is:

Code: Select all

# place this file under "/etc/httpd/conf.d/"

<Directory "/tftpboot/er/shares/">
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
</Directory>

AliasMatch (?i)^/er(.*) /tftpboot/er/shares$1


Sorry about that, it will be included in the next release.
Also it hasn't been tested in Debian.
