What is onion-helper and can I disable it?
I'm busy tuning my new Onion 2Pro (great machine!) and have come across a process called onion-helper. I'm trying to get rid of unnecessary process to make as lean a machine possible, so if I can disable this via /etc/init.d, I will. All I can figure out is that it respawns if terminated, but other than that, no idea. Can anyone advise please?
@peter-garner-0 onion-helper is not necessarily required , it's a ubus convenience service you can use to execute commands using ubus, I think it is also used by the "OnionOS" web interface to interact with UBUS as well.
You can disable it using:
Or remove it using opkg remove onion-helper
To examine the ubus functionality you an use:
ubus list -v onion-helper
@crispyoz thanks i'll give that a try. I'm always a bit wary if removing system-sounding things
