Some questions about OpenSlug
- I'm using OpenSlug 2.0beta on my NSLU2. I've used the Unslung firmware
but I prefer a standard linux system with more free resources and less
useless services (like http configuration interfaces and samba).
I've flashed the new firmware and I've initialized my external usb HD. I
have few questions about the use of OpenSlug firmware:
- I've created a new ext3 partition on the usb HD but after the reboot
the NSLU shows me the following mounted fs:
/dev/sda1 on /initrd type jffs2 (rw,noatime)
/dev/sda1 on / type ext2 (rw)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,nodiratime)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
tmpfs on /media/ram type tmpfs (rw)
usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw)
Is it normal that the "/dev/sda1 on /" is of ext2 type? Is it using the
journal feature of my partition?
My fstab is the following:
root@gimli:~# cat /etc/fstab
/dev/sda1 / ext2 defaults 1 1
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
tmpfs /media/ram tmpfs defaults 0 0
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs defaults 0 0
/dev/sda3 none swap sw 0 0
I've tried to change 'ext2' with 'ext3' in the fstab file but after the
reboot nothing change in the mount command output.
- other question: using the ipkg interface (I like it because it is so
similar to apt-get system of my Debian!) there are few packages
available. Are there other repositories that I could add to my sources?
root@gimli:~# cat /etc/ipkg/oe-feed.conf
src/gz oe http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/openslug/oe
I would like to use packages for rsnapshot, cron, http, email-related. I
don't like the idea to compile packages with 'tar
xvzf...;./configure;make;make install'. I would use only ipkg packages.
Can I build them by myself (maybe using the unslung package sources)?
What do you use for you openslug?
