SVNCV Package for the LEAF

I wanted to have a single floppy Linux system with the svncviewer for VNC and I though the Linux Router Project (LRP) was a good starting point. After a few positive comments of people from the LRP mailing list, mainly from Dave Cinege, who stimulated me to try to do it myself, I decided to go for it (my first, and I hope not the last one, small contribution to the wonderful world of free software).

I specially want to thank Karl Heinz Kremer, who made the Linux-One-Disk-Svncviewer Floppy Disk (LODS) when I was asking for the possibility of getting a one-single-floppy of Linux with svncviewer support in the VNC mailing list. Thanks a lot, Karl Heinz, in the first place for the great LODS, and now for your advices on puting together svncv for LRP.

History

[1998 07 27] SVNCV.LRP Revision 2 (0.2-1) released.
It includes, in agreement with Ganesh Varadarajan (author of svncviewer), the original readme file which comes with it as part of the help file. Back up is almost working, with exception of the vga libraries.
[1998 07 03] SVNCV.LRP Revision 1 (0.1-1) released.
It didn't back up properly and didn't include any documentation at all but svncviewer worked fine :)

Using an Iomega Zip drive with LEAF

From linux-router-admin@linuxrouter.org  Mon Jan 22 10:43:37 2001

Subject: Re: [LRP] Iomega Zip
Sender: linux-router-admin@linuxrouter.org

Hello,

A couple of days ago I was asking whether there was an LRP Parallel Iomega Zip package available. Actually is not necesary to have one, since using Zip disks involve only loading a few kernel modules on memory.

I have succeeded using my parallel Iomega Zip on my EigerStein2Beta box. Modules needed are: scsi.o, sd_mod.o, parport.o, parport_pc.o, ppa.o (for my old Zip) or inn.o (for newer Zips). lp.o has to be *unloaded* if there is only one parallel port available.

The procedure I have followed is:

  1. Copy modules scsi.o, sd_mod.o, parport.o, parport_pc.o, ppa.o (or inn.o) into a data floppy.
  2. Mount the data floppy on the LRP box (mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /mnt)
  3. Copy modules over to /lib/modules (copy /mnt/*.o /lib/modules)
  4. Unmount the floppy (umount /mnt)
  5. Make sure lp.o is not loaded with lsmod and unload it if it was loaded with rmmod lp
  6. Load modules : insmod scsi.o; insmod sd_mod.o; insmod parport.o; insmod parport_pc.o; insmod ppa.o (This can be done with a single command by creating a file containing each insmod instance on a single line and making it executable. Of course, to execute them at boot time, it should also be possible to place the insmod commands somewhere under /etc, but I don't know where they shoud be placed)
  7. Mount the Zip disk (mount -t msdos /dev/sda4 /mnt) or (mount -t ext2 /dev/sda1 /mnt)
  8. After ussage, unmount the drive (umount /mnt)

Being able to use long names should be as easy (I guess) as mounting the drive as vfat instead of as msdos. I haven't tried it yet. I guess there would be a vfat.o module or something like that which will do it... I'll check it out and post the result for others lame newbies (as myself :) who might be interested.
