I'm not sure that those Ubuntu notes you mention has anything to do with iPXE, or that you're a bit confused as to how iPXE drivers actually work. They're not related to Linux drivers at all (they just happen to mostly share their names).

Just wanted to mention that I had problems with Linux kernel drivers. I have been reading the rt816x driver source for better understanding of the iPXE implementation.

You are using the method mentioned on to create an iPXE binary, are you not?

I am following the instructions to build from source.

make bin/ipxe.usb DEBUG=realtek:3

I think DEBUG=realtek is enough (:3 is a bit of overkill and has a tendency to scroll by quickly and hide the initial problem), and try to include another picture with just the initial parts + the first dhcp command compiled from the latest git version of iPXE. You could also try and run through the tests on to see where you get problems.

I will try running through the driver test today. This seems like a logic next step, thanks Smile
