Install Modules To Flash Drive Mkiv

Hey All,

I've been playing around with this the last day or two and wanted to share with everyone.

Installing modules to USB is extremely easy, I'm still playing around to ensure there aren't lingering effects as a result of the change I made.

All modules and their data are stored by the looks of things in /www/pineapple/modules. So all we need to do is move the modules directory to the flash drive and create a symlink in its place.

Steps are as follows, I'd suggest not having the web interface open while doing this:

1) mv /www/pineapple/modules /usb/modules

2) ln -s /usb/modules /www/pineapple/modules

Sebkinne has mentioned something like this in a future firmware update. but is cool to be able to do this for the time being.

I did something just like this but for the logs folder in /www/pineapple/logs

Yeah, for the time being that will work.

The system that will be coming soon is a little smarter.

It checks space etc and recommends install locations.

Devs can then specify a rough estimate how much extra space (appart from the files) may be needed. Say for logs, pcap files etc.

It is pretty much done, just need to iron out a few things.

Best,

Sebkinne

Ohh that's a good idea for the logs folder. I didn't think about that. Can't wait to see the smarter version that Seb is referring to. :)

Seb,

Will we be able to move logs too as per your description?

Cheers,

Nik
