How to use Builder to create a Node

This page is intended to formalize how to use the current Builder scripts in the PTP subversion repository to build a Captive Portal Personal Telco Branded router on a computer with two ethernet cards.

The current state of builder is a working proof of concept. In the future all of the fuctionality of these process will be part of Adhocracy.

Step One (Prepare the Hardware)

For a matter of maintaining support and stability in a rational way we have choosen to use Debian Woody (Stable) as the Linux distrobution to build upon. These scripts expect to find a computer that has a minimal debian install, two ethernet cards, and a connection to the Internet.

partition the hard disk

Currently the most common hard drive size that we have been using is a 2G drive. Normally this is the way the particions are created.

256M Swap

256M /

512M /var

1G /home

install Debian Woody

Perform a minimal stable install easily accomplished with a Debian Stable r3 or r2 netinst disk.

Install with a 2.4 kernel

boot: bf2.4

Do not run taskel

Do not run dselect

Upon reboot, only create the root user, tell the mail subsystem to do nothing, enable all choices for encrypting passwords, and answer the default for most other questions (More detail later)

Do not run taskel

Do not run dselect

Step Two - Create Nodedb Entry
