Re: Setting up a Packet BBS on Raspberry-Pi

Yes, it does run. I’ve just installed it (following instructions at ). As far as I can tell it is running – I can telnet to it, and it appears to be sending packets. I don’t know enough about jnos to test further.


I’m running the standard PI raspbian disro with latest updates – Kernel 3.2.27+

Thank you for checking this John...


Did you try running the resulting executable? Nothing has to be
configured and it will create some junk folders in /root. The reason
to do this is that the problem with compiling JNOS on some of the
embedded (ARM?) Linux distributions - like Unslung on the NSLU2 - is
that JNOS uses the setcontext/getcontext scheme and that wasn't

I could compile JNOS on the native NSLU2 environment but it wouldn't run...

I'm moving my NSLU2's (and pogoplug) to Debian in hope of getting
around this issue...
