Slax AoE LiveCD is a bootable CD with AoE target and AoE iniziator programs. It can be used as AoE server/client.

It is almost standard Slax Frodo Edition with some modules needed to use AoE.


Boot from a CD. Login as root with password toor. Then you have three possibility:

You can export partition as

vblade 0 0 eth0 /dev/sda2

You can use vbladed, so the program will be daemonized and its output will be sent to the logger program:

vbladed 0 1 eth0 /dev/sda3

You can use vbladectl. vbladectl is written by me for lazy people:

vbladectl start sda4

This will launch vblade as: vblade 0 0 eth0 /dev/sda4. Logging will be done in /tmp/log.

If you want to change shelf just do:

export SHELF=2

The same valid for slot number, interface and logging place:

export SLOT=4
export IF=eth2
export LOG=/var/log

To stop exporting do:

vbladectl stop sda4

Now if you will start exporting again it will start with the same slot value.

To stop and remove link from /service directory (forgetting slot number):

vbladectl remove sda4

vbladectl will increment slot number automatically. You should not increment it yourself every time by exporting SLOT variable. If you removed exported disks and want to start from 0 again than remove file /var/run/vblademem

You also can pass multiple disks to the script:

vbladectl start "sda1 hda3 sda4"
vbladectl remove "sda1 hda3 sda4"

What's New in This Release:

Slax was upgraded to version 5.1.8, vblade to 13, and nmap to 4.11.
The standard Slackware rc.inet1 was added.
It is now possible to set a static IP address if you install the distribution onto a hard drive.
