The LEAF "Bering-uClibc" user's is intended as a guide for Bering-uClibc specific issues. For issues which are not described here, the reader is referred to the Bering User's Guide. A lot of the information in that document is directly applicable to Bering-uClibc.

Users contributions are encouraged and welcomed. They can be send to the authors either in plain ASCII form or - better - in Docbook XML format. The XML source code of all chapters is available to everyone and can be used as templates.

Basic prior knowledge of linux and of the LEAF Bering-uClibc distro (or any other LEAF distributions like Bering, Dachstein or Oxygen) is assumed. In particular the reader is supposed to be able to perform the following tasks:

  • Add or remove a Bering-uClibc linux kernel module by moving it to (out of) /lib/modules or /boot/lib/modules directory

  • Adjust the parameters of a given package through the LEAF configuration menu and backup a package

The following reference is a prerequisite reading:
