Network File System (NFS)

    

Setting the host

        

1 - Install NFS Service on host typing:

      

$sudo apt-get install nfs-kernel-server 

        

2 - Create symbolic link to ltib/rootfs

      

$sudo ln -s <ltib instalation folder>/rootfs /tftpboot/rootfs 

        

3 - Setup exports typing:

      

$sudo gedit /etc/exports 

        

and add the following line:

      

/tftpboot/rootfs/ *(rw,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check,async) 

        

4 - Restart the NFS server:

      

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

        

Now the host is ready to use NFS

    

Setting Target Linux Image to use NFS

        

1. Run LTIB configuration by typing:

$cd <ltib instalation folder>

        

$./ltib -c

        

2 . On first page menu, go to "Target Image Generation -> Options"      

 

3. Select the option NFS only and exit LTIB configuration to compile with the new configuration.

        

4. LTIB should start new compiling and create a new Linux image on /<ltib instalation folder>/rootfs/boot/zImage

        

5. Copy the created image on /<ltib instalation folder>/rootfs/boot/zImage to /tftpboot/zImage

        

6. The system is ready to run with NFS. The root file system on target will be located on host on /<ltib instalation folder>/rootfs/
