Fedora Core 3 Update: bootparamd-0.17-19.FC3
Posted on: 05/02/2005 01:17 PM

A bootparamd update is available for Fedora Core 3

Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : bootparamd
Version : 0.17
Release : 19.FC3
Summary : A server process which provides boot information to diskless clients.
Description :
The bootparamd process provides bootparamd, a server process which provides the information needed by diskless clients in order for them to successfully boot. Bootparamd looks first in /etc/bootparams for an entry for that particular client; if a local bootparams file doesn't exist, it looks at the appropriate Network Information Service (NIS) map. Some network boot loaders (notably Sun's) rely on special boot server code on the server, in addition to the RARP and TFTP servers.

This bootparamd server process is compatible with SunOS bootparam clients and servers which need that boot server code.

You should install bootparamd if you need to provide boot information to diskless clients on your network.
