Please also refer to the project's wiki page https://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/bclash/wiki/WikiStart This should contain the most uptodate information and should be better maintained then this readme. 1) Access on serial console A simple getty is sprawned from inittab on/dev/ttyS0 if your system's serial port is elsewhete you might want to change that befor writing your image to the embedded system 2) Root password Default root password is: root 3) Root filesystem To make the system 100% ctash proof the system's initialization scripts leave root mounter read only. If you need to change something just do a "mount -o remount,rw /" to have root filesystem ReadWrite enabled and once you're done do "mount -o remount,ro /" to put it back in Read Only. 4) IP addresses Unless otherwise configured these are the defaults: eth0 first tries dhcp if it's uplinked otherwise comes up with eth0:1 comes up by default with 5) SSH access On first boot dsa keys, if none are found in /etc/dropbear, will be created for dropbear 6) http A simple "It works!" will be displayed in servers root URL 7) What's included -A nearly full busybox build -udev -iptables -pppd -dnsmasq -at -usb_modeswitch -sqlite3 -php (bothe command line intrepreter and cgi intrepreter) -dropbear ssh server and client -Ordinary client side wireless tools (missing wpa_supplicant thoug because I supposed that most people will be doing AP with this not clients) -hostapd (for making AP's) -uboot environment variable management utilities (fw_printenv fw_setenv) 8) What's not included but required for booting Boot loader and kernel are not included. You must ither download them or build them yourself for your hardware if none are avalible. Appart from intell where the bootloader and kernel could be unified the other non intel based platforms cannot be unified. For instance the hardware differences between Sharp Zaurii and plug devices sheva plug family that all share ARM processor cannot use the same kernel nor the same boot loader as each needs to be custom build for the specific hardware. Furthermore even kernels for the Zauri need to be built specifically for different faury families c7xx c5xxx c6xxx and cx000 do not share the same kernels. On the other hand the userspace binaries can run in a variaty of platforms just so long as the kernel supports that paricular binary format. This is largly why kernels are not bundled wuth the root filesystem tarball. 9) Licemse related stuff The whole environment is built from open source software that is released ither with GPL license or BSD license or bothe. The licenses if not included in the package can be downloaded from the relative homepages or from the web sites of each component. I'm sorry for not including them in the distribuited system image but targeting embedde systems space is an issue. If anybody feels upset by this please contact me and we will find together a solution that satisfies both. In particular the whole environment was specifically built to feel as much as possible like Slackware and actually quite a few things came right out of the Slackware distribution itself (or whatever ort was avalibe for the target platform like for instance armedslack for the arm platform), some others come from there but have been adapted for the busybox based system and the rest was built spefifically for clashNG. 10) Installing ClashNG is in it's early stage so if you concider using ir now you should know what you're doing. Here is a very sinthetic list on how you might go about installing clashNG on your system. There are many ways to do the required steps listed below so untill I document properly a relatively safe way you will need to document yourself where ypu're lacking. OpenWRT dockstar installation instructions are quite good so you might like to start reading from there (http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/seagate/dockstar): -unpack the main clashNG tarbal for your architecture somewhere -unpack in the same place the appropriate kernel tarball -remove kernel unecessary modules and frimware if yoy're stuck for space -create the target image with jffs2 or ubi tools (make sure the kernel you are using has in kernel support for the target image you will be using) -write your image to the internal flash of your device at the appropriate mtd or offset so that your boot loader will not be wiped out -configure your boot loader to load kernel from the appropriet mtd or offset -configure your boot loader with the appropriate parameters for mounting the root filesystem Alternatively if you wrap the root filesystem in an ext* filesystem on a usb storage stick and you have a valid initrd for your setup you could use Jeff's uboot fro debian to boot from the usb stick
