    Troubleshooting cloop probs

    On my server that serves my knoppix image, I've noticed recently that with newer versions of knoppix, I get cloop errors in the background on the clients until they eventually crash. Running the straight iso works fine though.

    I'm not even sure that this is a knoppix problem or not. I've tried different network cards, booting from PXE, booting from etherboot. Sometimes it seems to boot ok, but files are missing.

    Since the cloop stuff is included in the image that downloads, I don't think it would really matter about the server...

    I have not heard of anyone but myself making a knoppix boot server (as previously mentioned in my how-to posting) So if anyone else has done this, I'd be interested in hearing about it.

    cloop is a pretty quick hack which may not work very good over the net(or some other file system), I assume you somehow nfs mount and cloop on a file on remote.

    In fact, it doesn't work even for local NTFS fs 1.x.

    This is the method that I use.

    Redhat 7.3 for the guts behind it, the iso is mounted as /cdrom and shared. The tftboot is copied locally and shared.

    I use dhcpd v3 for the ip assignment as shown above.
