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

NFS Host Setup


Configure Device

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

once you've done that, run:

# modprobe nfs
# mountnfs
# cd /mnt
# ls

and you should see the contents of your /home dir
