Hi, I am trying to install FreeBSD onto a CompactFlash card for an ALIX system. This guide precisely documents my goals:
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/articles/solid-state/ro-fs.html Unfortunately, it has not been updated for FreeBSD 7. Crucial files such as /etc/rc.diskless2 have been replaced by a new mechanism in /etc/rc.initdiskless. The little documentation I have scraped from the web is too focused on PXE boots with NFS-mounted directories for me to figure the new system out. All I need is: * / partition to work in read-only mode. * Volatile directories such as /root, /var and /tmp to be populated into a memory filesystem on boot. The /conf system seems to be related to this, however /etc/rc.initdiskless specifically says that it is not the correct mechanism to use for /var. (Quite what is, I've no idea.) Can someone give me a leg up? -- Jay L. T.
