we maintain an internal repository of Rachel ‘module’ files that includes our own non-public module folders.
in the past, i’ve mounted a usb ext4 ssd to our earlier Rachel-Plus or Rachel-Pi, to mirror our updated content onto the Rachel when necessary (with rsync -avr --delete /modules /media/RACHEL/rachel/modules). in the field we won’t have much bandwidth & our Rachel’s are offline, so I was hoping to use something like this for updates in the long run.
RACHEL-Plus 3.0 seems to some new features (?); when I plug in an external ext4 drive, the /.data mount point for the internal drive is obliterated with the external USB drive. The normal functionality of the CAP is interrupted and only way I’ve found to restore it is to reboot.
why is it this way, and is there now a different way to do what i need to do?
are there release notes or is there some other way to keep up with changes like this?
for Rachel-Plus our repo is 200+ GB and I have 7 of these to do, and some of the target content won’t change (so use of rsync is preferable).
