    BLPXE fails to start on linux

    Matt Kreger

      Same server where the bltftp just decided to not log anything for a day.  Now PXE server is acting up. 

       

      First thing I found was the files with 8 char hex names that get created in tftproot/X86PC/pxelinux/pxelinux.cfg were all of a sudden 0 bytes, so the server being provisioned wasn't getting past the initial PXE boot.  Unsure what was causing it, I stopped and restarted BLPXE.  Now that service dies after a minute or so, usually right in the middle of writing a line to the log:

      Turned on debug and got a whole lot more lines, but nothing that looks relevant to the problem.  still just dies in the middle of logging a line.
