> disk_config disk1 align-at:32256B
> This worked perfectly. The client installed and then booted, no problems. Again, this is 4.0~48 FAI with the 3.3.5 perl modules and setup-storage script copied into my nfsroot.
> I then restored the 4.0~48 perl modules, setup-storage script, and lib files to my nfsroot and restarted the client. That worked just fine.
> Next I transplanted the 3.4.5 perl modules, setup-storage script, and lib files to my nfsroot and restarted the client. No go. fai.log shows my disk_config file then Error in task partition. Traceback: task_error task_partition task task_install task task_action task main
> Now, this MAY be due to the fact that the FAI installation itself is 4.0~48 with a transplanted 3.4.5 setup-storage, yet with the 3.3.5 version transplanted in it worked just fine. Kind of odd.
I'm not sure I fully understood. I wouldn't quite expect the above disk_config
line to work with any non-experimental version (if it does, it's rather a bug in
the parser, meaning the parser isn't strict enough). For both 3.4.5 and 3.3.5,
however, I would hope things work fine if you just remove the align-at:32256B
part. Could you confirm that?
Thanks a lot,
