Version 0.2 This procedure must be done as root on a machine that can mount a Compact Flash device as a disk drive. You will also need grub installed. If starting from a stage2 tarfile skip the first part of this. wget http://www.personaltelco.net/download/bewitched/stage1-0.2.tgz mkdir readonly cd readonly tar xzf ../stage1-0.2.tgz edit etc/resolv.conf.default set up as appropriate for network config suggestion use maus as a nameserve untill final configuration: "search personaltelco.net" "nameserver 126.96.36.199" edit root/bin/mountu change /dev/hda4 to /dev/hda2 edit boot/grub/menu.lst change speed in "serial --unit=0 --speed=9600 --parity=no" to 19200 change line: "terminal --timeout=10 serial console" to: "terminal --timeout=0 serial" change all instances(3) of: "console=tty0" to: "ramdisk_size=16384" change all instances of "9600n8" to "19200n8" delete lines "savedefault" edit etc/init.d/mountall.sh before the line "mount -avt nonfs,nosmbfs,noncpfs,noproc" change "mkfs.ext2 /dev/hda3" to "mkfs.ext2 /dev/ram0" edit etc/fstab change "/dev/hda3" to "/dev/ram0" delete lines for floppy, cdrom and swap (/dev/hda4) change "/dev/hda4" to "/dev/hda2" edit etc/modules change "ne" to "natsemi" delete line "hostap_plx" edit etc/default/pcmcia change "PCIC=i82365"" to "PCIC=yenta_socket" edit etc/network/interfaces configure network as appropriate iface wlan0 inet static address 10.11.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 10.11.0.0 broadcast 10.11.0.255 pre-up iwconfig wlan0 mode master pre-up iwconfig wlan0 channel 1 pre-up iwconfig wlan0 essid www.personaltelco.net edit etc/inittab change the line that begins "T0" 9600 becomes 19200 # remove ssh keys rm etc/ssh/*key* mkdir dev proc var ln -s /var/tmp tmp at this point you can run "tar czf ../stage2-0.2.tgz *"
Start here if you already have a stage2 tarfile. Substitute the device name of the Compact flash for /dev/hde. You can do a "wget http://www.personaltelco.net/download/bewitched/stage2-0.2.tgz" to get the file.
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hde count=100 cfdisk /dev/hde hde1 125m bootable hde2 (the rest of the device) mkfs.ext2 /dev/hde1 tune2fs -c 0 -i 0 /dev/hde1 mount /dev/hde1 /mnt/tmp tar -C /mnt/tmp -xzf stage2-0.2.tgz umount /mnt/tmp mkfs.ext3 /dev/hde2 run grub and enter the following commands device (hd0) /dev/hde root (hd0,0) setup (hd0) quit # Note: Problems have been reported when using RedHat or Mandrake # to build the CompactFlash. This can be fixed by using a serial # cable. The problem is that grub is not properly installed so # it does not find the menu and ends up waiting for input. To # correct this, run the grub command "setup (hd0)" and reboot.
At this point the CF is ready for first boot in the soekris box. Go to ConfigureBeWitched for infromation on how to configure.
