Post No OEM file... on bash script
Good evening,

I try to use the script of Varazir to modify my install ESXi 3.5. As recommanded (on Windows), I installed VMware Player and Unbutu 10.04 to do that. ESXi 3.5 .iso file and the script mkesxiaio_3.9.9.sh are in a folder. I made the script executable and launched it. First step passed, I choose [1] ISO installation to burn a CD at the end, but I obtain immediatly an error :
"No OEM file.. exiting". I don't really understand what happens.

For information, my main goal is to add a NIC PCI card Realtek 8139 driver (10ec:8139) because the embedded NIC of the computer seems not to be supported (Broadcom 14e4:1691)

Thanks for help or any alternative idea :)
Ph.

'Morning,

About this error, I uncompressed oem.gz file in a folder to extract oem.txt and placed it on the root of the bash folder, then the following step is reached. I don't really know if it's the good solution...
But now? What I have to do with my communityxxxx.oem.gz file? (I try first the easier way). I'm not sure it is integrated in the script process. Should I let it on the root folder too? Or in the "custom-esx" folder?
Soz for basic questions it seems I'm the only one for whom it's a mystery... :oops:

Hi again,

I guess the oem.tgz file must be at the root of folder because I saw while the script:

Code:
Untar oem.txt to /home/vmplanet/Documents/ESXi/esx-oem
gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors


If I understand, the script is looking for a tar file which contains "oem" into. It find oem.txt and try to extract... the problem is I have the file community.oem.gz also, and it don't fint it (and if I remove oem.txt, I obtain the previous error, No OEM file).

Problem of extension ? gz or tgz ?

I try and let you know,

Ph.

Ok, it was that: the script doesn't recognize a oem file with .gz extension (provided there : http://www.vm-help.com/esx/esx3i/Custom ... 629.oem.gz).

After renaming oem.gz in oem.tgz, it's better

- ISO created (with community oem 1.1.0) 8-)
- Installation launched and... error of IDE storage

Usually (with the original ESXi 3.5U5 ISO), I fix it with the tip Install ESXi 3.5 to an IDE drive, but this time... no way :cry:

I think I'll give up...

For info, my storage stuff : 8086:27c0 (Intel 82801 GB Serial ATA Storage Controllers), I don't understand, it is in the list of supported devices...

Yes Daniel, the script worked.
I suggest just to indicate the problem of .gz and .tgz in the topic (or modify you bash)
Thanks for following anyway,

Still fighting...

One stupid question: a driver added with the bash (like r8139too.o) should be found in /mod folder of my final ISO?
Thanks,

Ph.
