Netboot image

The genimage command invokes genintrd automatically to generate the initrd for netboot. However, when the compute nodes boot up, the following error is returned:

Kernel panic: no init found. Try passing init= option to kernel

To modify the initrd, do: 1. #sudo -s 1. #mkdir temp 1. #cd temp 1. #cat /tftpboot/xcat/netboot/centos5.5/x86_64/compute/initrd.gz| gzip -d | cpio -i 1. #less init, the first line is

#!/sbin/busybox.anaconda sh

1. #ldd sbin/busybox.anaconda 1. #copy all the missing libs to lib64 or lib, take care of symbol links separately 1. #find ./ | cpio -H newc -o > ../initrd
