As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard) with prefixed line numbers. Alternatively you can here view or download the uninterpreted source code file.

    1 The aoetools are programs that assist in using ATA over Ethernet on
    2 systems with version 2.6 and newer Linux kernels.  
    3 
    4 Systems running 2.4 Linux kernels do not need and should not install
    5 the aoetools.  The aoe driver for 2.4 kernels is self sufficient.
    6 
    7 Please see the aoetools manpage for a brief list of the tools.

   10 AOE DRIVER COMPATIBILITY
   11 
   12   If you are using udev on your system, the aoe-mkdevs and aoe-mkshelf
   13   should not be used.  Just let udev create device nodes for you.  If
   14   you need to configure udev, its manpages, in conjunction with the
   15   example in the EtherDrive HOWTO FAQ, should help.
   16 
   17   If you are not using udev, it is important to ensure that the device
   18   nodes in /dev/etherd match the aoe driver.  Please see devnodes.txt
   19   for information.

   22 BUILDING THE AOETOOLS
   23 
   24 If you need to configure the software, look at the variables at the
   25 top of the Makefile.  The defaults should work for most people.  When
   26 using the defaults there's only one step to configure and install the
   27 aoetools software and documentation:
   28 
   29   make install
   30 
   31 You'll need sufficient permissions to install in the default locations
   32 if you haven't overridden them with your own locations.
   33 
   34 The aoe-sancheck tool depends on libpthread.  If its header and
   35 library files are not present, the aoetools makefile skips
   36 aoe-sancheck.  You can install your Linux distribution's "libpthread"
   37 and "libpthread-devel" packages (They might be called something
   38 slightly different) to help aoe-sancheck to build successfully.
   39 
   40 --------------------------------------------------------------------
   41 LEGACY TOOLS
   42 
   43 These two are legacy commands for systems without udev.
   44 
   45   aoe-mkdevs		create character and block device files
   46   aoe-mkshelf		create block device files for one shelf address
