Software for the Foxboard

Below is some software I compiled for the foxboard.

These applications are build for a Foxboard running a Linux 2.4 kernel and with glibc library (delivered by default with the FOX with Kernel 2.4.x)

You can download the cross-compiled versions below, but without any liability. Usage is completely on your own risk. However these programs are what is called free software, the rights of the authors are protected.

<h2>About these packages</h2>
<p>I build these packages on a Slackware Linux box, using the SDK of
Axis. This is how I use them:</p>
<p>In the foxboard I have put an USB-pen, with an ext2-formatted
partition mounted to /usr/local.
<br />The root of the USB-pen contains bin, etc, lib to create
/usr/local/bin, /usr/local/etc/, /usr/local/lib. The packages mentioned
above are put in these directories (except busybox, I did put that in 
the flash-image). </p>
<p>The cvs program works completely fine with dropbear (the standard replacement
of ssh in the foxboard-image). So on a remote system you can do something 
export CVS_RSH=ssh
cvs -d <username>@<hostname>:/path/to/repository checkout <directoryname>
Also when using rsync dropbear is completely transparent: it works exact like you would
expect from ssh.
