"init" is another thing. Your NFS root should include a /sbin/init or
or /etc/init or /bin/init or /bin/sh. If none of those exists, you
For setting up the NFS, I did the following:
1. exported the /export/RedHat7.1
2. downloaded MIPS_RedHat7.1_Release-02.00.tar from
this tar file has the following:
linux\installation\RedHat7.1\RPMS\mips\ <contains a lot of rpms>
linux\installation\RedHat7.1\RPMS\mipsel\ <contains a lot of rpms>
linux\installation\RedHat7.1\RPMS\noarch\ <contains a lot of rpms>
linux\installation\RedHat7.1\install\ <contains a Makefile, install.list,
linux\installation\RedHat7.1\install\root\etc\ <contains inittab, securetty>
linux\installation\RedHat7.1\install\root\etc\sysconfig\ <contains network>
linux\installation\RedHat7.1\install\root\etc\xinetd.d\ <contains telnet,
rlogin, rsh,rexec, hosts>
& some more files.
Now tell me what should be extracted to my NFS export /export/RedHat7.1
(along with their relative path info.).
Also let me know what path to be passed on to the kernel as parameter to
Is it simply /export/Redhat7.1?
Another question: I don't see a init file in the tar. or is inittab similar?
Is this "MIPS_RedHat7.1_Release-02.00.tar" tar file the right file & the
only file that is needed for now; that has the right stuff in it? Or do I
need to get the right file from a different tar file?
