dead SD-card every aprox. 6 months
i switched to using a small ssd USB stick, boot from the sd card, run from the usb stick… all the i/o goes to the ssd
can you explain how to do this, or provide a link to an explaination?
really easy, copy all the data from sd to ssd, then change one line in sd config, reboot… voila
on one machine I had trouble with regularly, I had a 500gb ssd drive I wasn’t using…
for my main dev machine, I just bought a 128gig usb stick ssd. came with a cable, took 20 minutes to copy the data…spent $35 from amazon
@BKeyport I am NOT trying to BOOT from the usb stick, most pi’s don’t support that
Speak of the evil, the evil happens. Blew up my SD card.
@MoreLinux so how do you edit this text file using root?
tmpfs /tmp tmpfs defaults,noatime,nosuid,size=100m 0 0
tmpfs /var/tmp tmpfs defaults,noatime,nosuid,size=30m 0 0
tmpfs /var/log tmpfs defaults,noatime,nosuid,mode=0755,size=100m 0 0
tmpfs /var/run tmpfs defaults,noatime,nosuid,mode=0755,size=2m 0 0
tmpfs /var/spool/mqueue tmpfs defaults,noatime,nosuid,mode=0700,gid=12,size=30m 0 0
could you potentilally give a more in-depth guide to doing this?
@PHAGE-GOV edit the file as root
if u are not root, then u must use the sudo prefix on a command
commands to edit on linux are vi, nano and (too many) others…
I use nano
sudo nano /etc/fstab
has nothing to do with MM, just basic linux skills.
