- search the mailing list archive

- wait until I (or someone else) will have the time to locate it
Make the file usbpen in /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/rc.d
# First, since floppyd runs as nobody, make /tmp world accessible.
chmod 777 /tmp
# Second, probe for the usb
# Third, make the usb world accessible.
mknod /dev/sda b 8 0
mknod /dev/sda1 b 8 1
chmod 666 /dev/sd*
# Finally, start floppyd.
floppyd -d /dev/sda1
Next add something like
RCFILE_01 = usbpen
this is best done for each ltspclient.
Specially if you also use floppyd.
usbpen and floppydisk is mutual exclusive.
Add also the followin line to all users .mtoolsrc
This makes some buggy usbpens work.
The only problem is that the ltspclient has to be restarted when you
change to another usbpen.
