Subject: [XSCE] Re: Internet-in-a-Box on XO-4 in ten easy steps Date: Sun, 12 May 2013 18:36:12 -0700 From: Braddock Below are further notes on getting Internet-in-a-Box to run on the XS-CE School Server pre-Alpha. The latest version of these and other notes are available at the github link at http://internet-in-a-box.org -braddock Install along side School Server XS-CE First I flashed to 13.1.0 Then installed IIAB using the procedure in README.md Then I installed School Server XS-CE Looks like School Server installs a conflicting older version of SQLAlchemy 0.7.10 vs pip's 0.8.1. You must not just remove it, but reinstall from pip yum remove python-sqlalchemy python-pip uninstall SQLAlchemy python-pip install SQLAlchemy School server mounts the USB hard drive in a different place, in /mnt/usb0 instead of /run/media/olpc/knowledge. ln -sf /mnt/usb0/knowledge /knowledge School server mounts the USB hard drive with the noexec flag. Annoying. School server installed Apache, which conflicts with nginx systemctl stop httpd To turn off the noexec flag Edit /etc/usbmount/usbmount.conf Remove noexec from: MOUNTOPTIONS= To run IIAB: Boot Plug in USB drive. /knowledge/internet-in-a-box/scripts/startup-xo.sh Go to http://schoolserver from any client machine On 05/12/2013 11:22 AM, Braddock wrote: > Here is a procedure for installing and running Internet-in-a-Box on an > XO-4 using a external USB harddrive. > This is a first pass!
