    How to add the NFS support for the target image and the ext3 filesystem?

    BG4BMH

      Hi everyone,

      I'm trying to add the NFS support for the Galileo. Is there any How-To to describe the task since I'm a new developer for the Galileo platform? Here are what I have done:

       

      1. Get the new config file for linux image through "bitbake linux-yocto-quark -c menuonfig"

      2. Enable the NFS support config options by adding an extra nfs-extra.cfg file under:

      meta-iot-devkit/recipes-kernel/linux/linux-yocto-quark/iot-devkit. and include the config file in linux-yocto-quark_3.8.bbappend

      Here are the contents for the file:

      CONFIG_NFS_FS=y

      CONFIG_NFS_V2=y

      CONFIG_NFS_V3=y

       

      3. Bitbake image-full. After booting the new image, I've checked the system through "cat /proc/filesystems". And the NFS was supported by the new kernel.

      4. mount a remote network file system by doing "mount -t nfs ...". But this command failed. It prompts some helper should be provided.

       

      It seems I have to add some extra binutils support for the mount?

       

      Thanks,

      James Jiao.
