    Hello all ZS fans…

    Anyone know what flavor of linux ZS is running? We ask as we wish to put this on a HD and add snmp, with a few other addons that we need for our specific application

    Snmp is supported on ZS. You can also copy it and run it from a HDD.



    “”Building Zeroshell

    Zeroshell is not based on an already existing distribution as for example Knoppix is based on Debian. The author has compiled the whole software of which the distribution is composed starting from the source code in the tar.gz or tar.bz2 packets. The compiler gcc and the glibcs of the GNU have been compiled too and have had the so-called phase of bootstrap in which they have recompiled themselves more times. This has been necessary to optimize the compiler and to eliminate every dependence from the glibcs of the system from which the first compilation took place. Some of the initialization scripts, as well as the guidelines followed by the author are those of Linux From Scratch.””


    OK…makes sense…custom built.

    Ppalias mentioned SNMP already on there? It shows up in the Web gui as a project yet to come.

    I assume “service start snmp”….yet it comes back with:

    /sbin/service: line 6 /etc/rc.d/init.d/start: no such file or directory
    /sbin/service: line 6 exec: /etc/rc.d/init.d/start: cannot execute: no such file or directory

    SO we look at /sbin/service and it’s calling to exec /etc/rc.d/init.d/$1 $2

    No clue what the variables of $1 and $2 would be




    Excellent…thanks…will give a try
