Am persisting with getting an ancient hard disk-less laptop up and running as a firewall and filter from my home network. When I get it all finished, will document for others.
Have cobbled together information from this forum from meo, noclobber, doom4 and others, to set up a frugal install of a remastered dsl 1.2.1 running on a usb stick, booted from a floppy. Need the gnu-utils.dsl, as some of the busybox utilities (specially tar) are missing functionality required by some other things I need to run.
So, tried to install gnu-utils.dsl from the usb stick second partition (dsl frugal is installed in the first partition) but got whole series (lots and lots) of errors like:
cp: cannot create symbolic link `/ramdisk/sbin/update-modules' tp `/KNOPPIX/sbin/update-modules': No space left on device
The lack of space doesn't make a lot of sense, given the following information:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/root 3.0M 615K 2.4M 21% /
/dev/sda1 133M 57M 77M 43% /cdrom
/dev/cloop 140M 140M 0 100% /KNOPPIX
/ramdisk 46M 17M 30M 37% /ramdisk
/dev/sda2 359M 32M 310M 10% /mnt/sda2
Any suggestions gladly received.
