I am currently trying to get a grip on vnuml (

Especially vnuml offers a framework for virutal network

Maybe aaron can provide some more background on that?
I _think_ zethix (in the CC) briefly looked into vnuml but it seemed
The scripts were all borked and quite unusable for us at least.
In order to releas texas from unproductive trial-and-error
testing (and feeling less intervening when applying core-kernel-
installing new system-libraries) I started to setup a small vnuml
on my home-pc. Therefore I found also the following links quite
( gentoo oriented setup, host-kernel-enhancement, uml-kernel,
( further links for root_fs howtos )
do you have a link explaining from-scratch busybox-based uml-rootfs
(as being used on texas) ?
with an existing root_fs:
mount -o loop root_fs /mnt
then just copy over things as needed. That is what I did . works!
To create an initial root_fs:
dd if=/dev/zero of=roof_fs bs=1M count=XXX
Then mount this root_fs from inside an existing UML instance and
fdisk it (./linux ubd1=root_fs )
and mkfs it
zethix was recently working on a way to do the simulation completely
without UML but with olsr_switch
which has still some bugs. Maybe some similar batman_switch
application can be usefull?
there's no place like 127.0.0.1
