LeapFrog Pollux Platform: Mount NFS Directory
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.
For Didj Enable Networking using the lf1000_ff_eth_defconfig file or manually adding NFS support.
Linux host PC
Configure Server and Client
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.
You'll need to edit /usr/bin/mountnfs, change:
mount -o nolock `get-ip host`:/home/lfu/nfsroot/LF /LF
mount -o nolock 10.0.0.1:/home/ /mnt
Start the server and client:
$ sudo /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server start
For Leapster and LeapPad Explorers
# 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
