Neolinux and code
Make name resolver work
Neolinux is a modifed and cut down version of Redhat, it also has additional drivers for the sis sound chip. It seems that name
resolution is bit of problem with the default setup though, see panel below for a dirty fix. Neolinux has NFS client support, so its
possible to use it with an NFS server, it also has wget to make life easy when it downloads patches. It makes heavy use of ramdisk and
symlinks so can need a little care to figure out which files are "real" and which ones are compiled or symlinked in during boot.
Dissable name resolver cache daemon
mv /usr/sbin/nscd /usr/sbin/nscd.off
Stop rc code from overwriting resolv.conf by commenting out line
# maintain permissions
#cat > /etc/resolv.conf
Disable rc code resolv.conf regeneration
Remove symlinked file
mv /etc/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.link
make real file
add "nameserver IP-of-lan-dnsserver"
Neolinux comes in many flavours, to simplify for people who just wish to play ive knocked up a few downloadable binaries. Neolinux contains wget, so its possible to download these directly onto the box like this ........
