Ok so now that I have downloaded this little thingy, what can it do ?
Well either you have a normal i386 PC or a
586BASE (with CORE)
or better board. I'll assume you managed to get the stiffy to boot.
Coincidently cordinux forms a nice general purpose bootdisk since it
uses grub as its
bootloader. See the grub manual
to exploit its nice features.
Anyway if you're logged in and you happen to have a eepro100 network card
(those found on the 586BASE/CORE) then you could setup networking as follows.
bash# ifconfig -a lo 127.0.0.1
bash# ifconfig -a eth0 192.168.0.100
bash# route add default gw 192.168.0.1
There isn't bash really running on the system, it's ash a smaller
implementation. I am just using it as a normal default prompt.
Change the IP's to fit with your network setup. Now you can start httpd
from / to allow remote file read access from the device.
bash# cd /
bash# httpd -p 80
There is not much else. This is still an old build, the new one will be
based more on Trinux and then the
package system will kick in. You could write little cgi shell scripts,
but that is about it. Have fun.
