Addressed points highlighted in last commit by Ohad. (Especially the very dumb one.)
The curb gem is no longer required, but not having it disables the feature, after saying this in the log.

Actions #10

Updated by Paul Kelly over 13 years ago

The "download tftp boot files" link is greyed out if the media does not contain an OS that supports tftp downloads.
The "populate" functions interrogate the OS/family to see if it supports the required functionality

Paul,

I've taken a difference approch on this feature, as eventually, the media populating itself should not be done via foreman directly - it should be the tfp server which should request the media files.
in the scenario of one Foreman server, and many tftp servers across the internet/WAN, it does not make sense to foreman to fetch the files.

Attached is my first step solution to the problem, please review and feedback.

Hi,

based on Ohad's patch I've added support for Debian-based distributions which basically consists of adding the template file for pxelinux and implementing the Debian#boot_files_uri method in the Debian OS family class.

Cheers,
Jochen
