Summary

This is a tutorial to setup an NFS folder on your host PC for your explorer to boot from. NFS mounting of a directory will enable you to test applications and scripts without having to copy anything to your Leapster or LeapPad Explorer.

Prerequisites

Networking Setup

For Didj Enable Networking using the lf1000_ff_eth_defconfig file or manually adding NFS support.


Software Needed

Linux host PC

nfs-kernel-server

nfs-common


Configure Server and Client

On Host

Make sure your programs are installed.

sudo apt-get nfs-kernel-server nfs-common


Configure the /etc/exports file to point to the folder(s) you would like to make available for NFS mounting. Be sure to specify the IP of your device, otherwise anyone can mount it.

/home    10.0.0.2(rw,sync,no_root_squash)


On Device

You'll need to edit /usr/bin/mountnfs, change:

 mount -o nolock `get-ip host`:/home/lfu/nfsroot/LF /LF

to:

 mount -o nolock 10.0.0.1:/home/ /mnt

Start the server and client:


On Host

$ sudo /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server start


For Leapster and LeapPad Explorers

On Device

# modprobe nfs
# mountnfs
# cd /mnt
# ls


For Network Enabled Didj

mount -o nolock 10.0.0.1:/home /mnt


At this point should see the contents of your /home dir
