I'm trying to boot an Xserve G5 into Linux over the network. After
spending ages messing with DHCP I am now at the stage where the client
receives an IP address and boot filename (yaboot), and duly goes off to
fetch it using tftp.
However, when yaboot executes it is giving the message:
method 'load' failed fffffefc
Error, can't read config file
Welcome to yaboot version 1.3.13
Enter "help" to get some basic usage information
The version of yaboot I'm using is 1.3.13a-ubuntu5 and I at ve tried
binaries from both the Debian and Ubuntu respositories.
The contents of [tftproot] are:
So I gues the question is, how does the yaboot binary know where to
fetch yaboot.conf from? Or, where is it expecting it to be when booting
from the network?
I hope someone can help as I'm completely out of ideas.
