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

Software Needed

Linux host PC

nfs-kernel-server

nfs-common


Configure Server and Client

Configure the /etc/exports file to point to the folder(s) you would like to make available for NFS mounting

On Host

/home    *(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


On Device

# modprobe nfs
# mountnfs
# cd /mnt/home
# ls

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