This pages is for info about the Neuros OSD.
I'm not sure if it is mentioned elsewhere, but I had to add the following boot environment variables in order for nfs boot to work. It should be mentioned in method 1 under dhcp
setenv nfs_serverip your-workstation's-ip setenv nfs_root /path/to/neuros-bsp/rootfs/fs
These are required in /etc/init.d/mountall.sh for NFS mounts.
For an Ubuntu x86_64 system, you need to install the libc6-i386 package in order for the build script to work.
You must perform the optional DHCP server setup in order to use this method. This is the preferred method, but is generally only available if you're using a full DHCP server, not a SoHo router. It's not the most common situation.
This method is very easy, as nearly all the configuration information is stored on the DHCP server. The alternative is to store it all on the OSD as in Method 2 below.
setenv bootargs $(console) root=/dev/nfs rw ip=dhcp $(mem_reserve) setenv bootcmd dhcp\; bootm setenv nfs_serverip 192.168.0.1 setenv nfs_root /srv/neuros-osd-rootfs saveenv
Reverting to booting from flash
If you want to revert to booting from flash, you can just do
setenv bootcmd run cramfs_boot saveenv boot
Or you can just boot from flash once by doing
NFS Mounting Options
To mount NFS drives create the following files in /mnt/OSD
#!/bin/sh sh /mnt/OSD/bootscript.sh &
#!/bin/sh sleep 10; mkdir /mnt/tmpfs/mount_CF-card/data/shortcuts/data; mount -t nfs 192.168.0.1:/data /mnt/tmpfs/media/ext/data/shortcuts/data -o rw,nolock,tcp,nfsvers=3;
