BUG: MM_DHCP_HOST_NAME on bootline not read?

Post by rrajagopal » Sun Sep 18, 2011 5:39 pm

There seems to be a bug on reading MM_DHCP_HOST_NAME from the bootline. I am booting off a flash IDE using syslinux.

This is my syslinux.cfg:

DEFAULT minimyth

LABEL minimyth
KERNEL kernel
APPEND ro root=/dev/ram0 ramdisk_size=256000 initrd=rootfs MM_DHCP_HOST_NAME="mythtvserver" MM_MINIMYTH_BOOT_URL="file:/minimyth/" ip=dhcp

The expected behaviour is that minimyth.conf should be obtained from /minimyth/conf/mythtvserver/minimyth.conf. However, it seems that the init script does not read the MM_DHCP_HOST_NAME parameter from the bootline, but instead uses the ip address to look for a folder instead. How do I correct this?
