LINUX ROUTER MAILING LIST

LINUX ROUTER MAILING LIST

Post by Major Domo Daemo » Sun, 08 Jun 1997 04:00:00



*RFC* - Linux Router Project -  Preliminary discussion

First if there is such a project already please point me towards it if not
here are my ideas:

LInux is a fine vertical network application OS, but hand building and
maintaining it from scratch is pain staking.

I would like to form the Linux Router Project (LRP) to build and
maintain a turn-key style distribution of Linux for routers, terminal
servers, and other typically 'embedded' hardware TCP/IP network devices.

The main focus is a minimal space base root fs suitable for floppy,
eprom, and flashram disks (<=1MB?) and outside maintainence /
communication tools. (html configuration, RADIUS client, forwarding of logs,
snmp, etc.)

Starting from scratch at this point would be a bit pointless, so what I have
chosen to do, and what the project may see fit to do, is take a base install
of a pre-exsisting distribution (Debian in my case) and work backwards,
removing all non critical components and then adding maintenance tools that
seemlessly intergrate with the distribution.

The project will also look to upgrade critical router software such as
internal ISDN TA support, and Equal Load Balancing. (EQL)
