How to rebuild Netboot, on linux?

+1 vote

I'm trying to rebuild the netboot installer with the following which is not working well:

git clone git://

cd debian-installer/build

fakeroot make rebuild_netboot USE_UDEBS_FROM=trusty

I'm getting some dependency errors so I would like to ask which should be the right way to do this.

its not clear here from question whats the error you are getting, but I am giving one workaround for that. hope it will help for you:

On roo (the DHCP server):

In /etc/dnsmasq.conf, add the line:


This machine already serves an IP address to kanga via DHCP. (See "DHCP Note" below for help setting up this sort of arrangement.)

Restart dnsmasq.

  /etc/init.d/dnsmasq restart

Install the tftp-server

There are two different versions for the Trivial File Transfer Protocol server, the original tftpd and tftpd-hpa. For Etherboot installation (see below) tftpd will suffice, but it cannot do PXE installs due to the lack of the tsize option. Use tftpd-hpa instead. On Ubuntu or Debian (adapt for other distros or install from source):

  apt-get install tftpd-hpa tftp-hpa xinetd

(Note: xinetd is not part of the default install)strong text

For some reason I have to temporarily deactivate IPv6 interface configuration on a F22 server box.

According to documentation (or at least as I understood) it could be done either by adding

to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0


to /etc/sysconfig/network

I tried both, executed "nmcli c reload", "systemctl restart NetworkManager", even rebooted the system. No change in network configuration. In ifconfig I have a local link address as well as a global address as advertised by the router and autoconfig based on mac address.

All those options are documented in usr/share/doc/initscripts/sysconfig.txt, so I guess these are still valid options.

Now I am wondering what I may have overlooked or missed?

Any hint appreciated.
