Thread: bootparamd for opensuse 11.3?

    Default bootparamd for opensuse 11.3?


    I have an opensuse 11.3 install which I want to set up as a network boot server
    to install Solaris 10 on a Sun Ultra 10 client.

    According to what I've read, this requires rarpd and tftpd which I've set up
    on opensuse, but also bootparamd which I can't find for 11.3.

    It seems it was last included with opensuse 9.2.

    Does anyone know if it's available, if I could use the suse 9.2 version,
    or any alternative?

    well I installed the suse 9.2 source rpm and it worked, for anyone who comes across this problem in the future.

    Thanks for sharing. I don't think that many people will need this but for some it might be a real life saver

    I think one would typically use the DHCP method of installing from linux:
    JumpStart with DHCP

    Perhaps your Ultra 10 is not new enough to support that.
