Hello,

I'm not shure ifthis is a problem with replicator or
with the kernel I use.
I use the dhcp Kernel from the debian
fai-kernel-package for the
replicator bootdisk.

After booting from this disk and during the following
procedure I
get realy MANY of the following error messages:

modprobe: modprobe Can't open dependencies file
/lib/modules/2.2.20/modules.dep (No such file or
directorie)

Thanks,
Bernd

    I think there a two ways to solve both problems:

    a) Provide Modules
    On the miniroot-server
    1) Prepare replicator.conf
    2) Copy the Kernel-Image to the Pfad specified in
    replicator.conf
    3) Run repli-miniroot
    4) Copy the Modules from the used Kernel to
    <miniroot>/lib/modules/<kernelversion>/

    After booting the target with the replicator-bootdisk a new
    modules.dep is generated and rsync is working.
    This is working for me with the DHCP Kernel from the
    Debian-Package "fai-kernels"

    b) Don't use modules at all
    Use a kernel witch has completly disabled modules support.
    I think such a kernel should be compiled with
    "CONFIG_UNIX=y" to solve the problem about the missing
    module "net-pf-1"
    I did not test this.

    The doc ask to use a monolitic kernel (without modules).

    Cheers,
