[14:23] <netrunner> th: the installation system is well usable for rewriting the mbr. you just use the stages already installed in the system.

[15:14] <th> of course i do
[15:14] <blindcoder> with no system?
[15:14] <blindcoder> no
[15:14] <th> for rescue systems
[15:14] <th> nfs root
[15:15] <th> whatever root
[15:15] <th> usually installing a rescue system on a system is what i do prior to installing the productive system
[15:15] <blindcoder> hmm
[15:15] <th> then i use this system to install the productive system
[15:15] <th> this totally makes sense to me
[15:15] <th> because i can do the latter from remote
[15:15] <th> i only need to bootstrap a server with the boot-system
[15:16] <th> then i can do the productive yadda yadda later / from remote
[15:16] <blindcoder> I talked to stf^rock1inux about making both the installer and the initrd able to ssh into
[15:16] <th> yea the rescue system is sshable
[15:16] <th> that's the reason why i want to have it even if i do not have the production system yet
[15:17] <th> i usually get my gems for the prod-system via http or ssh
[15:17] <th> and that's how i update a system.
[15:17] <th> booting into the ssh-able rescue system
[15:17] <th> and re-gemming ;)
[15:18] <blindcoder> well, once the initrd is sshable, you won't need that anymore :)
[15:18] <th> and how will you get this installed without having or installing a productive system?
[15:18] <th> i guess you need grub stages in initrd then
[15:18] <th> and exactly that was my starting point
[15:18] <blindcoder> no
[15:18] <th> ssh-able initrd is propably somehow comparable to my rescue system
[15:19] <blindcoder> because the initrd can completely set up the real system
[15:19] <th> ok - how do you boot your sshable initrd??
[15:19] <blindcoder> powering on the machine?
[15:19] <blindcoder> oh
[15:19] <th> where does it come from? MBR?
[15:20] <blindcoder> yeah, yeah, I get your point
[15:20] <th> nice ;)
[15:20] <blindcoder> if the mbr is broken
[15:20] <blindcoder> I'd boot from the network
[15:20] <blindcoder> and have a full-blown rescue system there
[15:20] <th> so please understand that i'd like to be able to install MBR without prod-system
[15:20] <blindcoder> which means we need the complete grub stuff on the rescue/install system
[15:21] <th> booting from network requires some infrastructure that is not always available to you in most housing locations
[15:21] <th> tftpd special dhcp-options...
[15:21] <blindcoder> well, even hetzner has that :)
[15:21] <blindcoder> anyway
[15:21] <blindcoder> putting the whole grub on the installer is a good idea
[15:21] <th> this is why i want to have the server bootstrapped and be able to boot into something usable prior having the prod
[15:21] <blindcoder> make it so </nerd> :)
[15:22] <th> i do. since 3 years or so ;)
[15:22] <blindcoder> so where's the patch?
[15:22] <th> and i call the "installer" just "rescue system"
[15:22] <th> see rescue target in trunk
[15:23] <th> and i once published my irfs patch. for which i waited for feedback/discussion before making it a rock packaghe
[15:23] <blindcoder> what's the difference between the rescue and the installer target?
[15:23] <th> you're referring to the bootdisk target i assume?
[15:23] <blindcoder> yeah
[15:24] <th> well. rescue is overlayable. rescue is sshable. rescue has rescue tools (bootdisk does not even have tar). ...
[15:24] <th> endless list ;)
[15:24] <th> rescue is installable
[15:24] <blindcoder> okay, let me rephrase that question
[15:24] <blindcoder> is rescue suitable to replace bootdisk on a hand-out CD?
[15:24] <th> (i'd have continued with the disadvantages now. thanks for interrupting me ;-] )
[15:25] <th> not at the moment because i could not find the resources yet to migrate it to udev
[15:25] <th> so prior 2.6.13: yes it is.
[15:25] <blindcoder> so I just put it in my drive and stone starts?

[15:26] <th> might be that the rescue isolinux screen is not as "nice" but that's propably the easiest thing to change
[15:27] <blindcoder> if we can, maybe we should merge them
[15:27] <blindcoder> to reduce the number of duplicated work/unnecessary targets
[15:28] <th> i never ever tried to hinder
[15:28] <th> in contrary
[15:28] <th> i started some discussion about the rescue more than once
[15:29] <blindcoder> maybe you shdould just 'do' instead of 'talk'
[15:30] <th> talking is not what i do INSTEAD of doing but as a prerequisite
[15:30] <th> and if the talks end in too much upsetness on the communitysite i wont push my ideas into rock.
[15:30] <blindcoder> well, I've found that with the diminishing number of developers, talking gets me nowhere
[15:31] <th> not talking makes "a few-developer-project" to "few a-developer-projects"
[15:33] <blindcoder> exactly
[15:34] <th> thats why i stick to talking before doing
[15:35] <blindcoder> yeah, but there's rarely if ever feedback
[15:35] <daja77> well i am not that much emotionally attached to the bootdisk target ...
[15:35] <blindcoder> and that make blindcoder sad :(
[15:35] <daja77> so if you have have an installabe cd, i could try my laptop ...
