hanbot's Cuntoo Bake Test Notes - Part III, with Prep Script

March 8th, 2019

Following Part II, I had my machine rebooted and re-attempted preparation for Cuntoo from scratch. I managed to wrap my head around the admittedly simple path problem previously encountered, and ran trinque's bootstrap.sh. As reported in #trilema, the process fell over on looking for the expected kernel configuration file. I'd used the default config/4.9.94-apu2 parameter. Apparently there's more to this than "preferring" your own. Whoops.

I went through both lobbes' and mod6's recent cuntoo adventure reports to look for clues on kernel configuration, and found I could replicate mod6's process of copying the .config file in /usr/src/linux into the cuntoo/config directory.

The bootstrapper's running now; I'm looking forward to seeing what it has to say in the morning.

Meanwhile, the multiple reboots throughout the process thus far meant I had to prepare my machine for the bootstrapper multiple times, which process naturally became easier but still took up a lot of time copypasting and filling in holes in my notes.

I threw the steps into a script, cuntoo-prepper.sh, with signature. Installation of gnat, V, vtools, and associated pressing and setup is included, along with signature and sha512sum checking where relevant. Depending on your setup, you may need to edit your /etc/hosts file to include the various domains involved before running the script1 : ossasepia.com btcbase.org wot.deedbot.org trinque.org thebitcoin.foundation

Go with defaults during the gnat installation lest you end up tangled in directory confusion.

You'll have to manipulate your path a couple of times once the script's finished:

PATH="/usr/gnat/bin:$PATH"; export PATH
export PATH="/usr/gnat/vtoolsp1/vtools:$PATH"

Then do any futzing required for your kernel config, cd to your cuntoo directory, and hit it.

  1. Obviously if you need to enter thewhet.net just to get the prep script, you'll need alla these too. []
