vserver mit rsync on gentoo

* RSYNC_RSH=ssh vserver sablink-armv5tel build –context 1253 –hostname sablink-armv5tel –interface eth0: –initstyle gentoo -m rsync – -d gentoo –source [email protected]:/vservers/sablink-armv5tel

Qemu User for chroots

* add the go-virtualization overlay to your system ( add to the list of overlay in /etc/layman/layman.cfg) * layman -f && layman -a go-virtualization * echo “app-emulation/qemu-user static” > /etc/portage/packages.use * now merge 'emerge -v app-emulation/qemu-user' * now add and start the 'rc-update add qemu-user' to your system and start it 'etc/init.d/qemu-user' (this will add the proper binfmt_misc entries to your system * then copy the qemu-user-* static bins to the chroot for the differnt arch 'cp /usr/bin/qemu-user-* /vservers/sablink-armv5tel/usr/bin/' (don't do ROOT=/vservers/sablink-armv5tel emerge -v qemu-user, entropy can't and should not handle this)



first update the LS-GL to the latest stock firmware For the use of Gentoo Genkernel the u-boot boot vars need to be extendet with real_root=/dev/sda2 and the Initrd size propertie can be removed ,15M can be droped this change won't break stock kernel images as the newest u-boot stock firmware dont require it.


* create server centric config for all the boxes ( * update the ls-chl ls-xhl ls-vl ls-tera ls-…. patches to 2.6.39 (3.x requires a rewrite to the new arm kernel architecture) * write a eselect-nas module to dynamically switch between the installed/supported kernels (ln -sf /boot/kernel-3.1.4-buffalo_ls_pro_live.buffalo kernel.buffalo) * ….


* select base use flags for the sabayon system (using sabayons selection makes no sense: x11, akonadi, ….) * ….

* change the micro-evtd ebuild to also build for terrastation ( micro-evtd.tera micro-evtd wrapper script) * ….

dracut (drop genkernel)

* create a micro-evtd init module * create dropbear module and set a inital password (mac address hash or ….) * create a fixrtc module for the boxes without a clock (


* collect information for net install (my idea is to have a initrd that contains anaconda and detects the system and installs the propper kernel) * the anaconde bootloader schould be extendet to also support u-boot (setenv ….) * change the hd setup tool to have some hardcoded partition requrements (ls-pro/live ext3 with -I 128 inodesize) * ….


* search cortex A-9 board with sata connect (better for native compile) * Hosting the build server at * ….
