2.3.3 Caldera eDesktop installation
The Caldera eDesktop version 2.4 installation is easy, simply boot the
Caldera eDesktop Version 2.4 CD ROM and choose the defaults for most
options, with the following exceptions:
  Network Configuration
Our network was token ring based; hence, we chose to set up the tr0
interface for token ring. Caldera has scripts for ethernet network cards, but
not for token rings. We modified the ethernet scripts to produce the
required token ring interface. We used the following steps:
a. Ensure the correct driver for the token ring has been loaded at boot
time. This was the olympic driver for us. It is precompiled into kernel
2.2.14.
Token ring olympic driver
We had a problem with the olympic driver of the 2.2.14 in Caldera
eDesktop 2.4; so, we changed the kernel rpm to the 2.2.14 kernel
that is distributed for Caldera eServer 2.3 to activate the olympic
b. Edit /etc/sysconfig/network file and add a token ring interface to
IF_LIST as shown in Figure 4.
NETWORKING=yes
HOSTNAME=bdtest1.itsc.austin.ibm.com
IF_LIST= lo eth
tr0
sl ppp
Figure 4. /etc/sysconfig/network file
c. Copy /etc/sysconfig/network scripts/ifcfg eth0 to
/etc/sysconfig/network scripts/ifcfg tr0 as shown in Figure 5.
[root@bdtest1 network scripts]# cp ifcfg eth0 ifcfg tr0
Figure 5. Copy the eth0 script to tr0 script
d. Edit the ifcfg tr0 script to reflect our token ring network parameters.
The content of ifcfg tr0 is shown in Figure 6 on page 14
