I'm currently looking into improving FAI's Ubuntu support. My plan it to
make the wiki page more or less redundant. Bacause I'm no FAI-expert,
I'd like to have some feedback from others (also the FAI-Infrastructur I
inherited is quite far away from the example). Especially what parts of
that page can be removed or what must be done in the repo to remove
them. I start with the configuration space, as this is probably the
Before continuing, a new custom class shall be introduced:
OS_UBUNTU_1404_AMD64. This class tells FAI to install:
Ubuntu as OS
Version 14.04 of this OS
AMD64 (64-Bit) as the desired architecture.
I think this is confusing as it's an arbitrary sting and tells FAI
nothing. It's rather a suggestion of best practice.
There must be better way of doing this, than copying this. Any Idea. How
is the situation in debian? Would be adding sources.list/codename to the
example be a solution?
I think using the launchpad PPA and calling add-apt-repository is the
better solution here. Any comments?
Is that GRUB_PC stuff still necessary? I think that can be safely remove
Again, there most be a better way of doing this. Or why isn't this an
issue for debian?
**** hostname + root-user
I think this should go into the official example.
What is the reason for the "fcopy -ir /home/loc"?
That's it for now.
