omega2 plus sdcard not working



  • This has definitely turned off-topic!



  • the sd card issue has been resolved as of b143

    <3 Onion



  • confirmed working on 0.1.8 b145 with an 64GB SDXC card. Juppie :D



  • @Lazar-Demin Confirmed working here as well! :heart:

    I notice that it is mounted under /tmp.

    Now, I of course want to use the sdcard to get more space for software, for example for gcc. :)

    What is your advice how to achieve this? I want to use the sdcard instead of the overlayfs. I'm thinking of inserting soft links in the root.

    If I instead simply move everything to the sdcard. Is there a way not to mount the overlayfs but the sdcard instead?



  • @Lazar-Demin In relation to this comment from @Mikael-Djurfeldt :

    Would it be possible to have an updated version of https://wiki.onion.io/Tutorials/Using-USB-Storage-as-Rootfs for the Omega2 that covers SD card and USB storage? The Omega1 instructions don't seem to work because of issues with/lack of block-mount, see: https://community.onion.io/topic/1234/is-block-mount-gone-where-is-block

    While I haven't had time to play with this yet, I am guessing that we need to use uci but I am unclear and documentation would be appreciated.

    Slightly off topic, would it also be possible to include a link in https://docs.onion.io/omega2-docs/ to the Omega1 documentation at https://wiki.onion.io/Home ? I have seen some instances of people getting confused by the fact that there are differences between Omega1 and Omega2 :-(

    I appreciated that you all have a lot on at the moment, but hopefully you will find some time in the future to address the above issues :-)



  • In relation to using pivot-overlay (and/or pivot-root) on the Omega2 to get more system disk space using a USB drive (or SD card?), see my recent post https://community.onion.io/topic/1295/more-system-disk-space-using-pivot-overlay-and-pivot-root-on-the-omega2



  • @Wolfgang-Brehm Confirmed working on b145 with 8GB SanDisk. :thumbsup:

    To upgrade use oupgrade --latest.

    Then you should see following in dmesg:

  • Tested with my new 256GB sdcard and it finally works! With 0.1.8 b145:

  • Expect new articles on running the Omega's OS from an SD card in the near future!
    We'll also be updating the wiki to differentiate between the classic Omega and the Omega2!

    Stay tuned!
