Report LabVIEW and DSL (Damn Small Linux) in Linux Posted April 25, 2007 Okay after I pretty much already have a set up done I realize it won't work for you. My idea was to take a PreInstall environment, based on BartPE, where you would create a live OS which was around 80MB. You could then load that 80MB into ram and run any LabVIEW executable with it. The problem is at 80MB there aren't very many drivers, it would likely not have any audio, dial-up, wireless, very limited ethernet drivers, but it would have SATA drives, and USB mass storage drivers. So I was going to include this program for you to include the ethernet drivers in the package. So basically you run this little utility, and it will detect what kind of drivers you have installed, then it gives you the option of adding those drivers. So my idea was for you to run this utility on the machine that you wanted to work on. Problem is, that computer doesn't have windows on it, it doesn't have any OS on it. This is a perfect solution, IF the identical ethernet card is also on another machine that does have windows on it. I know it's kinda confusing but it's hard to explain too. If you're still confused I can elaberate. Also if you still would like a How-To load LabVIEW into RAM I can post that some where, who knows some one else might want to do some thing similar.
