I am trying to do a preconfigured netinstall of debian 6, using preseeding. I have setup a tftp server, which serves kernel and initrd, however the parameters specifying the preseed file seam not to work. Here is part of my pxelinux.cfg:
LABEL mydebian6_amd64_install menu label ^Install Debian 6 amd64 kernel install/mydebian/linux append vga=normal initrd=install/mydebian/initrd.gz auto=true url=http://10.0.3.20/preseeds/debian6-preseed.cfg --
kernel and initrd.gz get loaded, however, the debian6-preseed.cfg never gets pulled of my webserver. The url given above is valid, I can pull it with wget within the same network and the request shows up in the apache log. However the netboot stops with questions about the default route, and the apache logs show no trace of a preseed file being fetched.
The network configuration seems to be ok, auto configuration with dhcp succeeded. The installer then asks me weather I want to continue without a default route. I was hoping to be able to configure this in the preseed file, but since I don't get that far, it won't work :/. Now I tried adding
to the append line, but that did not help.
tftp,dhcp and apache all run on the same server, which is a ubuntu 12.04 server. Everything within a virtualbox virtual network.
