...I have a little question about CentOS, and sorry about my stupid question, I'm beginner in linux systems...
...On Debian, it's possible to download the minimal system, with the following commands :
# aptitude install debootstrap
I would like to know if there is similar command for CentOS...
My objective is to have a PXE server (on CentOS) and install CentOS on client computer via NFS
...Everything works with FTP method (with CentOS DVD install source files). But now, I want to use NFS method. My configuration for NFS seems to be good. However by this way, I would like to put the core (or base) CentOS files.
...I searched on Internet, and I found the tools debootstrap for Debian, and I would like to know if there is something similar for CentOS.
Debootstrap install debian distribution (or similar) on a mount point using the engine from another debian system already in use, and retrieving the packets on a website or a folder. It can also be used from a live cdrom.
Today, I saw feboostrap for Fedora, but the yum install febootstrap donesn't works at all : package doesn't exist
...Is it possible by yum ? I tried the command yum --installroot=/nfsroot groupinstall Core, but I get error at the beginning (YumRepo Error: All mirror URLs are not using ftp, http[s] or file
yum groupinstall '<groupname>'
...Is it possible to take CentOS cdrom as source ? I'm more interested by this way.
yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=c5-media install <packagename>
...What about Mock ?
I have a laptop on CentOS 5.4, and I configured it for PXE server. With, I'll only deploy Centos 5.4 too....
What about Mock ?
