ensure /opt is setup correctly to allow toolchains to be built on the node

mkdir -p /opt/netsurf
chown jenkins:jenkins /opt/netsurf

become jenkins user

su -s /bin/bash - jenkins

create ssh keypair (accept defaults - no password)

ssh-keygen -t rsa -C "netsurf@nsciworker17.netsurf-browser.org"

copy .ssh/id_rsa.pub from worker to jenkins master node and append to /home/netsurf/.ssh/authorized_keys

scp .ssh/id_rsa.pub netsurf@ci.netsurf-browser.org:nsciworker17_id_rsa.pub

get jenkins slave jar

wget http://ci.netsurf-browser.org/jenkins/jnlpJars/slave.jar
