A script is born

Posted 10-07-2011 at 12:00 PM by Thor_2.0

So...as noted in a previous post, all stuff can be automated...by a Bash script.

Wow, never did that before...so my first one is ... totally out of style? I know. Yes, it is, I admit

So far, it preps the disk, sets up networking, downloads and installs ... one package, but it's a proof of concept...

Next, I need to make it a bit more "pretty" and add the packages in there, and in the right order. This means hunting down the depencencies,...

Half-way there

I dont know what I did, but I think I'm half way there. Okay, half is not all the way, but it's a start.

But...as pointed out, it's a workload, a big one. Now, just now, I turned the PC in question off, had been lit since friday morning (had a day of...) and now, I've got...barely a command prompt.

The trick is not to lose track of the dependencies. After all, since a configure/make/make install is possible, quite a few requirements are met ... by the host system. Trick...

A patient padawan reaches the goal...

...well, part of it anyway.

Thusfar, I did this:
- partition the drive
- format the partitions
- make a root file system (folders & mountpoints)
- mount /dev/sda3 to /media/sda3
- mount /dev/sda1 to /media/sda3/boot
- mount /dev/sda4 to /media/sda3/home
- make a Downloads in the /root folder (on disk)
- prep a variable to be used as prefix for the config
- hand-prepped netwoking and did a ping test
- extended the search...

An impatient padawan trips...

Wise words from Yoda, warning the impatient padawan to take small steps...

I mentioned the --prefix a few entries ago, well, this would be set to the mount folder and not the device, so the entry

Quote:
/dev/sda3
really should read

Quote:
/media/sda3
Quote:
DST=/media/sda3
...then, expand the path:

Quote:
PATH=/mediq/sda3/bin:[all points expanded with the mount point]:$PATH
...that should prove to be a bit better...

"File exists" - yeah duh...

Posted 09-27-2011 at 03:29 AM by Thor_2.0

Okay, so, using the prefix did'nt really work for binutils...upon the install, the installer comes back with "file exists", yea sure...

I tried to move the make to ram (in the ramfs) but the unpack sent the box into the mud...

Gave up for the day, got other stuff to fry now...
