I am interested in netbooting NetBSD via PXE. The problem is in working
Pxelinux menu, want to boot NetBSD through pxelinux.
As I understand NetBSD kernel should be bootable in several ways, but no works.
1. First I tried is to make pxelinux load pxeboot_ia32.bin as a kernel and
netbsd kernel appended. It works for few computers, mostly answers
pxe_netif_probe: PXENV_UDP_OPEN failed: 0x1. Even if i explicitly save pxe
stack through 'keeppxe' option.
Also, I beleive its pretty wrong to load pxe loader in pxe loader :))
2. As I understand NetBSD conforms to multiboot specification, and should be
bootable through mboot.c32 loader. It doesn't work too - hanging after kernel
3. Also I tried to load it through elf.c32 loader - it hangs and reboots even
So, what is the most 'right' way to netboot NetBSD kernel via external
pxeloader and why it doesn't work?
Thanks in advance.
