Issue with fastboot

Eric Trezel
Hi,

I discovered a fastboot option, and I'm trying to enable it on my
thinstation server.
I activated "param fastboot true" in build.conf, and put lib.squash in
tftpboot dir.
But it just doesn't work :
At client boot, I got this message :
mount : /tmp/lib.squash: failed to setup loop device : no such file or
directory

(just before that, I got an error message from cp, just as when you type
a wrong cp command)

Then no such device or directory messages about /etc/rc.2 and rc.5, and
finally "can't run '/sbin/agetty' : no such file or directory" infinite
looping message.

I tried adding a fast_boot_url option in thinstation.conf.buildtime,
pointing to a web server, with no more luck (exactly the same behaviour
at client boot).

I can't see no request for lib.squash in tftp server log (tail -f
/var/log/syslog during client boot).

I tried to activate package autonet too, with no more result, though

What am I missing ? Could someone explain me the correct way to make it
work ?


Thanks for your help
E.T.

On my experience, that usually means you didn't include support for your
network card. Make sure you have the needed module on the machine list.

This is not my case. I made the tests with the same PC I use for all my
thinstation tests, for a long time.
I only changed fast boot options in conf files.
I looked at net conf on the client after boot (I launched busybox on
tty2 and used ifconfig) : everything was OK)
Just for the record : I also tested with autonet rather than netwokmanager

Re: Issue with fastboot

If that's not the case, maybe it's a failure to read FASTBOOT_URL
variable. I've set it at pxelinux.cfg/default:

APPEND ....  FASTBOOT_URL=ftp://x.x.x.x/pub/thinstation

Re: Issue with fastboot

In reply to this post by Eric Trezel
Fastboot needs to know where to look to find the lib.squash. We tell where by putting LM=# at the end of the kernel cmd line. I think 4 is for PXE, but the cmd is updated with every build. You just need to copy the pxelinux.cfg with every build in addition to vmlinuz, initrd and lib.squash

Re: Issue with fastboot

Eric Trezel
After many more tests, I finally managed to get fastboot working.

As Elio Coutinho wrote in his last mail, I had to add the fastboot_url options to the append line in my pxelinux.cfg/default file.
BUT it didn't work with the web server's name : I had to use its IP Address. It seems that name resolution isn't ready at the time lib.squash should be downloaded.

However, it doesn't work if I activate this option in thistation.conf.buildtime, even with IP Address in place of server's name. I tried many syntaxes for the server's address (with or without quotes, with or without http:// at the beginning...). I can't understand why.

I have two more questions :
In build.conf file (comments to param fastboot), you talk about "squash lag". Does this option affect performances of clients ?

I noticed http (wget) loading of files is much more faster on my network than tftp (that's why I tried fastboot option). Maybe I should only have used the net_file_method=wget ? Does it work for initrd loading, or only for conf files, later ?


To summarize what I finally did (it could eventually be usefull for others) :
- Activate in build.conf :
param fastboot true

package autonet
(package networkmanager was already commented, and stays like this)

param initrdcmd "gzip -9"
(this option contained "squashfs" first, I found this on a forum (Don's advice that solved someone's issue with fastboot). I'm not sure it's usefull, but I didn't try back with "squashfs" since it works for me)

- In pxelinux.cfg/default :
add "FASTBOOT_URL=http://ip.of.web.server/" (without quotes) at the end of the APPEND... line
(put the lib.squash file in this place on the web server, of course.

Thanks for your help
E.T.

Re: Issue with fastboot

Eric Trezel
Hi back,

The FASTBOOT_URL option in thinstation.conf.buildtime finally works. I just forgot a little piece of conf :
In your pxelinux.cfg/default file, you have to add the LM=# which Don talked about in his previous mail.
I put LM=3 in mine (I use my own pxe files), because, that's the value I found in default file built by thinstation (build/boot-images/pxe/boot/pxelinux/pxelinux.cfg/default)

This LM option has to be present, I forgot it in my previous summary.

Do you want me to make a clean doc about fastboot somewhere ? I didn't find all this on the net, and I know you don't have time enough to make all the doc. If I could help this way, tell me. It won't be a complete doc, of course, but at least the basics to have it working in most cases, that can be completed.

E.T.

In build.conf file (comments to param fastboot), you talk about "squash lag". Does this option affect performances of clients ?

I noticed http (wget) loading of files is much more faster on my network than tftp (that's why I tried fastboot option). Maybe I should only have used the net_file_method=wget ? Does it work for initrd loading, or only for conf files, later ?

- Activate in build.conf :
param fastboot true

package autonet

param initrdcmd "gzip -9"
(this option contained "squashfs" first, I found this on a forum (Don's advice that solved someone's issue with fastboot). I'm not sure it's usefull, but I didn't try back with "squashfs" since it works for me)

- In pxelinux.cfg/default :
add "FASTBOOT_URL=http://ip.of.web.server/" (without quotes) at the end of the APPEND... line
(put the lib.squash file in this place on the web server, of course.

This is not my case. I made the tests with the same PC I use for all my
thinstation tests, for a long time.
I only changed fast boot options in conf files.
I looked at net conf on the client after boot (I launched busybox on
tty2 and used ifconfig) : everything was OK)
Just for the record : I also tested with autonet rather than netwokmanager

Re: Issue with fastboot

Eric Trezel
Hi,

Joined to this mail, you'll find a txt file that summarize everything I did to get fastboot working.
If it can help as fastboot doc starting point.

I don't know where you want to post it. It's up to you to decide ;-)

Hi back,

The FASTBOOT_URL option in thinstation.conf.buildtime finally works. I just forgot a little piece of conf :
In your pxelinux.cfg/default file, you have to add the LM=# which Don talked about in his previous mail.
I put LM=3 in mine (I use my own pxe files), because, that's the value I found in default file built by thinstation (build/boot-images/pxe/boot/pxelinux/pxelinux.cfg/default)

This LM option has to be present, I forgot it in my previous summary.

Do you want me to make a clean doc about fastboot somewhere ? I didn't find all this on the net, and I know you don't have time enough to make all the doc. If I could help this way, tell me. It won't be a complete doc, of course, but at least the basics to have it working in most cases, that can be completed.

Re: Issue with fastboot

Eric Trezel
Hi,

I finally abandonned fastboot, because it causes issues with USB key in an RDP session :
When I plug an USB key in client, I see it in my RDP session, but it's not writable (there is place on the device, but an error message is telling me space is not sufficient : exactly the file's size missing on device).

Am I the only one to meet that problem ? Is there a known solution for this ?

Thanks
E.T.

Re: Issue with fastboot

Don Cupp
Are you using fastboot in addition to the overlay package? You might try disabling or enabling that in addition to fastboot and see if you get what you want.

Hi,

I finally abandonned fastboot, because it causes issues with USB key in an RDP session :
When I plug an USB key in client, I see it in my RDP session, but it's not writable (there is place on the device, but an error message is telling me space is not sufficient : exactly the file's size missing on device).

Am I the only one to meet that problem ? Is there a known solution for this ?

Hi back,

The FASTBOOT_URL option in thinstation.conf.buildtime finally works. I just forgot a little piece of conf :
In your pxelinux.cfg/default file, you have to add the LM=# which Don talked about in his previous mail.
I put LM=3 in mine (I use my own pxe files), because, that's the value I found in default file built by thinstation (build/boot-images/pxe/boot/pxelinux/pxelinux.cfg/default)

This LM option has to be present, I forgot it in my previous summary.

Do you want me to make a clean doc about fastboot somewhere ? I didn't find all this on the net, and I know you don't have time enough to make all the doc. If I could help this way, tell me. It won't be a complete doc, of course, but at least the basics to have it working in most cases, that can be completed.

After many more tests, I finally managed to get fastboot working.

As Elio Coutinho wrote in his last mail, I had to add the fastboot_url options to the append line in my pxelinux.cfg/default file.
BUT it didn't work with the web server's name : I had to use its IP Address. It seems that name resolution isn't ready at the time lib.squash should be downloaded.

However, it doesn't work if I activate this option in thistation.conf.buildtime, even with IP Address in place of server's name. I tried many syntaxes for the server's address (with or without quotes, with or without http:// at the beginning...). I can't understand why.

I have two more questions :
In build.conf file (comments to param fastboot), you talk about "squash lag". Does this option affect performances of clients ?

I noticed http (wget) loading of files is much more faster on my network than tftp (that's why I tried fastboot option). Maybe I should only have used the net_file_method=wget ? Does it work for initrd loading, or only for conf files, later ?


To summarize what I finally did (it could eventually be usefull for others) :
- Activate in build.conf :
param fastboot true

package autonet
(package networkmanager was already commented, and stays like this)

param initrdcmd "gzip -9"
(this option contained "squashfs" first, I found this on a forum (Don's advice that solved someone's issue with fastboot). I'm not sure it's usefull, but I didn't try back with "squashfs" since it works for me)

- In pxelinux.cfg/default :
add "FASTBOOT_URL=http://ip.of.web.server/" (without quotes) at the end of the APPEND... line
(put the lib.squash file in this place on the web server, of course.

Thanks for your help

Fastboot needs to know where to look to find the lib.squash. We tell where by putting LM=# at the end of the kernel cmd line. I think 4 is for PXE, but the cmd is updated with every build. You just need to copy the pxelinux.cfg with every build in addition to vmlinuz, initrd and lib.squash

This is not my case. I made the tests with the same PC I use for all my
thinstation tests, for a long time.
I only changed fast boot options in conf files.
I looked at net conf on the client after boot (I launched busybox on
tty2 and used ifconfig) : everything was OK)
Just for the record : I also tested with autonet rather than netwokmanager

We also have that issue. Try to create a folder on the USB key and then copy the files into that folder. Surprisingly, that works for us...

Re: Issue with fastboot

Eric Trezel
Don : I tried disabling overlayfs, it doesn't change anything.
Elio : I can create folders, delete them, and delete files that were on the key, but no way to copy a file, even in a new folder. It always returns a message telling that xxMo are necessary (xx is exactly the file's size, and of course, the key's not full)

Really weird....

Thanks

This is not my case. I made the tests with the same PC I use for all my
thinstation tests, for a long time.
I only changed fast boot options in conf files.
I looked at net conf on the client after boot (I launched busybox on
tty2 and used ifconfig) : everything was OK)
Just for the record : I also tested with autonet rather than netwokmanager

Re: Issue with fastboot

Don Cupp
Which RDP client? This has to be an issue with the way that the client is determining free space of the usb drive. Fastboot is essentially just a bunch of links in an initramfs. There is no runtime, so the only code in play is that of the RDP client. At this point, I would say it is a bug in the client, not something inherently wrong with fastboot.

Do you want me to make a clean doc about fastboot somewhere ? I didn't find all this on the net, and I know you don't have time enough to make all the doc. If I could help this way, tell me.

I have two more questions :
In build.conf file (comments to param fastboot), you talk about "squash lag". Does this option affect performances of clients ?

I noticed http (wget) loading of files is much more faster on my network than tftp (that's why I tried fastboot option). Maybe I should only have used the net_file_method=wget ? Does it work for initrd loading, or only for conf files, later ?

It's exactly that. The felling is that only file and folders are mounted, not free space !

Fastboot is essentially just a bunch of links in an initramfs. There is no runtime, so the only code in play is that of the RDP client. At this point, I would say it is a bug in the client, not something inherently wrong with fastboot.

I think about fastboot, because without this option, I don't have no issue with USB keys (using exactly the same packages and conf files).

Something weird : On my RDP session, I can see a "usb on clientname", in which my usb key appears (sdb1), when I plug it in the client. I can't add a file in sdb1 (usb key folder), but I can do what I want in the "usb on clientname" folder.

Can you tell me which part of thinstation (in the chroot) is dealing with usb mounting ? I'd like to take a look a the code to try to find out what is going wrong ?

Thanks
E.T.
