i'm setting up a soekris net4501 machine and during some testing i ran
into a problem. basically, if i compile:
into the kernel then i get the following error during a net boot (pxe):
nfs send error 65 for xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:/soekris/
and then the machine stops booting as it can't continue to load the root
after hunting and pecking around, i found out this relates to a "NFS
server host unreachable" error...
my guess was that since i had enabled default blocking by ipfilter, once
ipfilter loads then all network access is cut off until the rules
(/etc/ipf.rules) are applied.
so is this impossible to do since loading the rules would require
mounting a partition?
