The previous post ended with “I have no idea why the nodes won’t boot.” Now we know. The problem is that, in terms of the mkchroot-rh script that Warewulf3 comes with, Fedora 16 is not a Redhat derivative. This makes some sense, since the init system in Fedora16 is all kinds of fucked up, consisting of a self-interfering mixture of SysV Init, chkconfig (cloned from Irix) and systemctl.

Moral of the story: don’t use Fedora. It looks like the software that suggested Fedora works better on CentOS anyway.

WordPress Header Glitch

For some reason, the 3.1 to 3.1.1 WordPress update (or something coincident with it) removed the rel=me link back to my Google profile from my headers. Those links are important – they’re how this page is integrated into my online identity via XFN (The “Xhtml Friends Network”), one of the open standards which will obsolete proprietary social networks like the normal standards-driven internet obsoleted AOL, Compuserve, and the other early walled-garden services (oh please oh please oh please oh….). More immediately, they are what lets google know it should pull blog posts into my Buzz feed and such. Fixed now.
