I'm trying to get udpcast to work via PXE with our machines.
Our SEAGATE ST973402SS (SAS) harddisks are not detected automatically by the
udpcast linux kernel, which I downloaded from
From the output of dmesg,

and the output of lsmod, I am guessing that the right module for the HD is
Hence, I guess I need to compile a kernel for udpcast. I read in your website
that one should use your boot image generator. However, this tool is only
distributed as a RPM binary. When using Debian's 'alien' tool to convert the
RPM to a .deb package, I get:
dpkg-gencontrol: error: current build architecture amd64 does not
appear in package's list (i386)
which makes sense, since our arch is amd64.
What's the most intelligent way to go from here? Should I get a hold of the
sources for udpcast-mkimage-20070622-1.i586.rpm to build udpcast-mkimage
myself? Where are the sources available?
Is there an easier way to go about all this?
Thanks a lot,
