# A script to start UnixAos with a working directory, possibly in a removable
# flash store. 
# Aos with the flash store on various machines is accomodated by copying 
# machine specific configurations into Configuration.XML and Oberon.Text. 
# Conditions for this script to work. 
# * The volume containing the working files has a reliable name 
#   assigned by a udev rule. 
#   https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/udev#Writing_udev_rules. 
#   In this instance the name is GRNSDHC41 or BlackSDHC1. 
# * A mount point and working directory exist for the working volume.  
#   MountPoint and WorkingDirectory can be the same or different.
#   A system may automount the volume at another location and automounting 
#   is harmless to this script. 
# * The following assignments to WorkingVolume, WorkingDirectory
#   and MountPoint are correct. 
# * An appropriate entry exists in /etc/fstab.  This is an example. 
#   /dev/GRNSDHC41 /home/me/MY ext2 defaults,noauto,user,users,exec 0  0 
# * /etc/sudoers.d/sudoers is adjusted to allow the user to e2fsck the working
#   filesystem.
#   me mycomputer = NOPASSWD: /sbin/e2fsck
#   Test e2fsck interactively.
# * If the working volume is removeable the user can mount it.  Note the 
#   user option in /etc/fstab. 
# * /usr/bin/aos attempts to create the link .aoshome to /usr/bin/aos in the 
#   working directory but a FAT file system does not allow links.  This can be 
#   resolved by bind mounting a directory, .aoshome, to /usr/bin/aos. 
#   Create the directory .aoshome in the Working Directory. 
#   Add a line to /etc/fstab to allow the user to perform the mount. 
#   /usr/aos /home/me/MY/.aoshome none rbind,user,users 
#   My preference to reformat the flash card to ext2. 
# WorkingVolume=/dev/BLKSDHC41
