Description Craig Rodrigues 2011-09-13 08:40:11 UTC
Remove the FreeBSD Jumpstart article from docs. This article was written over 10 years ago, and the information has gotten stale. Some of the steps in this article no longer work. For example, the FreeBSD Release team no longer produces installation floppy images in the FreeBSD release. I talked with Alfred, and he agreed that the information in this article is outdated and should probably be removed. This article has been superceded by a new section in the FreeBSD Handbook. This section will be visible here: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/network-pxe-nfs.html At the moment, a draft version is visible here: http://people.freebsd.org/~rodrigc/doc/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/network-pxe-nfs.html

I don't know how to code one up in Docbook SGML. -- Craig Rodrigues firstname.lastname@example.org

Responsible Changed From-To: freebsd-doc->gjb Make this mine. I promised rodrigc I'd look at his (though many months ago...).
Comment 4 Glen Barber 2012-05-19 23:24:59 UTC
State Changed From-To: open->patched A change was committed that warns users that the PXE article is outdated and that the chapter in the Handbook should be used. State changed to 'patched' as a reminder to remove the old article after a few weeks.

State Changed From-To: patched->closed The pxe article has been removed from the tree. (Sorry for the delay.)
Comment 8 Wolfram Schneider 2017-10-12 15:43:25 UTC
There is still a danish version of the article doc/da_DK.ISO8859-1/articles/pxe I think it should be removed too.
