    FlashExpander Plugin

    FlashExpander

    The flash expander "enlarged" the flash with the help of an additional device.

    Function:

    The complete folder /usr is swapped with "mount bind" to a device. Meant that brings the flash expander the greatest benefit when the same after flashing a new image using the flash expander and then installed only other plugins or skins. If you want to test the new flash without flash expander can of course also the only way is no free space is created in Flash but, the current free space is "frozen".

    Once you've used the flash expander should be removed in any case, the stick or CF SSD or more, the box will boot up but only in this moment again used the original / usr, so all changes are lost. The device which is used for the flash expander, can be found under the mount point "/media/flash expander" again. Any negative side effects should not arise from the flash expander (eg TPM-Check), as it has changed for the programs /Enigma nothing, for example, FTP can see no difference in the folder /usr.

    The unit can still be used for other tasks, such Picon outsource, only required it is no more.

    If a swap on the device to be applied should first be disabled. The unit must be hung briefly make it new on /media/flash expander integrate.

    Requirements:

    A device that is formatted with ext 2/3/4 and has a partition. RAW devices are not supported. If you stick his e.g. as a RAW device used, without partition, it can be as Gemini in the device manager and re-initializing provided with a partition.

    Installation:

    The IPK into / tmp and install the Console "opkg install /tmp/flash expander *". Anyone who has installed a Gemini is easily in the console an "opkg update | opkg install flash expander" Perform. You can find the plugin then menu-> Add-ons to restart Enigma.

    Anyone who wants can help you develop into the flash expander, sources can be found on the box. Geminis are newer, with a recommendation to use flash expander published.

    Important:

    Flash Expander has been tested not in conjunction with any other image managers or Flash extensions.


    v0.13-r2

    Plugin adapted for working in AZBOX HD in RTi Core 1.0 and laters.

    adapted by MoRpHiUS_x


    Pd: This plugin has been tested with USB flash drives, but I have not been able to test it with an internal HDD.

    Please, report any errors.

    Thanks MoRpHiUS_x

    FlashExpander (FE)

    Code:
    The Flash Expander "magnified" the flash with the help of an additional device is therefore a multi boot.
    Gemini or ICVS is not a requirement, should work on all images.
    So I made to check the flash expander into CVS.
    The FE is using different images OE1.6 or 2.0 have been tested.
    For the 7025 + packages are 3 further required that must be installed separately
    
    Languages:
    English, German, French, Dutch and Italian
    
    Requirements:
    A device that with ext 2/3/4 or xfs formatted and has a partition. RAW devices are not supported. If you stick his e.g. used as a raw device, without partition, this Initializes and the box must be restarted.
    You can use the FE in conjunction with an NFS server, eg It makes sense if the dm500hd has no USB kit.
    
    How it works:
    The complete folder / usr is outsourced to a device, this means that the flash expander brings the greatest benefit when the same after flashing a new image uses Flash Expander, and then only install additional plug-ins or skins. If you want to test the new flash without Flash Expander, you can of course also the only way is no free space is created in Flash but, the current free space is "frozen".
    Once you've used Flash Expander should be removed in any case, the stick or CF or SSD more, the box will boot up but only in that moment again used the original / usr, so any changes will be lost. Any negative side effects should not arise from the Flash Expander (eg TPM check), there has changed for the programs / Enigma nothing, for example FTP can see no difference in the directory / usr.
    
    Installation:
    The IPK, via FTP to / tmp copy of the box and on the Console / Telnet install "opkg install / tmp / flash expander *". The FE can be found under Menu-> Extensions. The plugin will see if the FE is already installed. If not, you can choose a partition that is used in the future for the FE. All data on the device are cleared, the device will be used exclusively for the Flash Expander.
    
    
    Important:
    Flash Expander has been tested not in conjunction with any other image managers or Flash extensions.
