Unable to install infusions to USB partition


Recommended Posts


I'm struggling to install infusions on the large partition of my 4GB USB drive. Some context:

I have followed Darren's tutorial here.

The swap partition is enabled and working (free shows "Swap: 642748 0 642748")

The fstab file seems correct, according to other posts:

config global automount
       option from_fstab 1
       option anon_mount 1

config global autoswap
       option from_fstab 1
       option anon_swap 1

config mount
       option target   /usb
       option device   /dev/sda1
       option fstype   ext4
       option options  rw,sync
       option enabled  1
       option enabled_fsck 0

config swap
       option device   /dev/sda2
       option enabled  1

The mount command shows some weird stuff:

root@Pineapple:~# mount
rootfs on / type rootfs (rw)
/dev/root on /rom type squashfs (ro,relatime)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,noatime)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noatime)
tmpfs on /tmp type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noatime,size=14672k)
tmpfs on /dev type tmpfs (rw,noatime,size=512k,mode=755)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,noatime,mode=600)
/dev/mtdblock3 on /overlay type jffs2 (rw,noatime)
overlayfs:/overlay on / type overlayfs (rw,relatime,lowerdir=/,upperdir=/overlay)
debugfs on /sys/kernel/debug type debugfs (rw,relatime)
none on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw,relatime)

This is how I install sslstrip (from ssh):

opkg update
opkg install --dest usb sslstrip

and this is the error:

Installing sslstrip (0.7-1) to usb...Downloading http://cloud.wifipineapple.com/packages/sslstrip_0.7-1_ar71xx.ipk.
Installing python (2.7.3-1) to usb...
Collected errors:
 * verify_pkg_installable: Only have 480kb available on filesystem /usb/, pkg python needs 1875
 * opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package sslstrip.

I have tried with a 4GB USB drive and a 8GB minisd card inserted in a minisd-usb dongle. Same error with both devices.

I'm pretty sure I'm missing something huge here, but I just can't see it.

I'm replying to myself.

The reason it didn't work is that the partitions weren't formatted as EXT4.

I have used fdisk from my RaspberryPI to partition the usb but forgot to run

mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda1
mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda2

Everything is working now!
