A Collie Running Pdaxrom, My Builds & Tips (5500)
« Reply #30 on: May 29, 2007, 06:08:14 am »
well ive allready (since the last update) made some headway and great progress's,

just built and am testing "proxychains" a neat program that can "route" data between tor and any program that may or may not have proxy support, e.g. chat, torrent, dillo !

works well with dillo and no setup, just install, coming soon...

in other news some little tips:

i finally got around to looking into what zgcc-3.4.5.img was and how to use it.... its a developer image that has all your headers, libraries and gcc related stuff plus alot more im not sure about...

beta1 has the code support allready,  but it only looks in root (no space there on collie  ) and did it before the sd is mounted too...

below is the code i added at the bottom of /etc/rc.d/rc just before the last line "exit 0" to solve this.

it searchs your sd card root for the .img and if there mounts it,  the first bit of script mounts your swap if you have one too... (edit the path though) this all happens just the collie gets to teh login prompt (run level 5), so you can add other tid-bits too....

(i also have /opt symlinked to /mnt/card/opt)

Code: [Select]
if [ $runlevel -eq 5 ]; then
#export HOME=/home/root
#/usr/X11R6/bin/startx
# edit the following line to match your swap location
swapon /dev/mmcd/disc0/part2  
fi


if [ $runlevel -eq 5 ]; then    
    if [ -f /mnt/card/zgcc-3.4.5.img ]; then                                      
        if [ ! -d /opt/native/arm/3.4.5-sa1100-softvfp ]; then                    
            mkdir -p /opt/native/arm/3.4.5-sa1100-softvfp                          
        fi                                                                        
        mount -o loop /mnt/card/zgcc-3.4.5.img /opt/native/arm/3.4.5-sa1100-softvfp
    fi    
fi


------------

i also just found/figured out how to auto assign an ip address to my compact flash ethernet before logging in, see here:

Why did you need to symlink /opt? You're not actually putting anything there when you mount the image.

yes, thats right, i figure out the gpa issue was with gtk ...

unfortuanately my host has removed ssh access ;( some peeps were exploiting it...
so i cant check my file integrity after upload so i leave that up to you. (unless i re-download which is tedious due to 28.8k country australia dialup...)
and it also means i cant maintain an updated .tar.gz of the feed, so i have removed to old one as will leave none for now...


well i feel very releived to have sorted out the gpa issue, as now i can run latest release on my desktop puppyos too


upcoming releases hopefully just around the korner: (i finally got qt and kernel sources) ;p

pppdialer/pppconfig
bestcrypt
maybe even kopi

[revised]

yes, it is better to have /opt symlinked to your media card, (if not necessary)

as you may want to install something there that is most likely too big for the internal such as another toolchain which could sit in /opt/native/arm/xxx ...

whereas the dev image mounts at /opt/native/arm/3.4.5-sa1100-softvfp
