4 I have a EMT64 server that runs a mythtv backend as well as other things
5 and a AMD64 mythtv frontend which has been running with its own hard
6 disk and therefore install of Gentoo for sometime. I am looking at
7 building another frontend without a disk so I thought I'd experiment
8 with my current frontend. I have managed to get it booting using PXE, I
9 copied the hard disk contents to a directory on my server and followed
10 the rest of the howto, but I have the following questions/problems:
12 1. I can still compile/emerge on the frontend but its very slow as its
13 on NFS. Can I compile on the server by chrooting? Basicallly I want to
14 know if I can compile on EMT64 targeting AMD64. The frontend was
15 installed with stage 1 so I guess the compiler won't even run in a
16 chroot'ed environment.
18 2. The Gensplash is compiled into the kernel. It appears at startup with
19 the 'Initialising kernel' screen but the progress bar never appears. It
20 just shows that screen until X is started. Any ideas what might be wrong
21 here or where I should start to look?
23 3. My DHCP server issues static routes, but since I've made the frontend
24 boot over PXE (static IP address) it never gets the routes. Any ideas?
26 Cheers for any help,
27 Dave.
