Setting up a Packet BBS on Raspberry-Pi


Tommaso Ravaglioli
 

Hello all, I'm new to the group, and I'm planning to build a solar powered Packet public bbs, to be installed in a remote mountain site, and I'm evaluating if building it using a Raspberr-Pi would be a good choice. Do you have some advice? I'm still planning, and wondering what to do, mostly because all I have right now is the site owner authorization..

Thanks in advance, Tommaso IZ2QYZ


 

JNOS2 compiles.

JNOS2 compiles.
Thank you John. It compiles on the Raspbian with default libraries?

Thank you,

Thank you for checking this John...

But....

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
supported.

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...

Yes, it does run. I’ve just installed it (following instructions at http://www.langelaar.net/projects/jnos2/downloads/linux/ ). 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+
