I've been using the same pxe install setup for FC3 all the way up to F16. F17 is now failing. On my tftp server, I have the following pxe menu entry for F17:
label core17-x86_64 kernel core17/x86_64/vmlinuz append initrd=core17/x86_64/initrd.img ramdisk_size=8192 ks=http://192.168.1.1/kickstart/FC17-x86_64-base.cfg
My kickstart file is short and simple:
reboot install nfs --server=192.168.1.1 --dir=/pub/fedora/17/x86_64/os lang en_US.UTF-8 keyboard us timezone --utc America/Los_Angeles
I verified that the kickstart file can be found at the specified URL, and that the fedora 17 install tree can be NFS-mounted from the specified directory. However, when I perform a PXE install in a VM or on real hardware, I get the erro:
dracut Warning: dracut: FATAL: For argument 'ip=192.168.1.80:192.168.1.1:126.96.36.199:255.255.255.0'\nSorry, unknown value '192.168.1.1'
dracut then refuses to continue and the install fails. I found in the release notes that it's now necessary to point the pxe installer at the install directory: http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/17/html/ReleaseNotes/sect-ReleaseNotes-ChangesforSysadmin.html#id624774
However, even when I add
...to the pxe stanza, I get the same error.
Is there some other option or setup step that I am missing?
