 Automount Partitions On boot
This section configures the WL-HDD so that after boot, it will automatically mount your storage partition to /opt and activate the swap partition. Olegs firmware lets you run commands or scripts after boot using two files, the post-boot file and the post-firewall file. Lets make these files
mkdir /usr/local/sbin touch /usr/local/sbin/post-boot touch /usr/local/sbin/post-firewall chmod +x /usr/local/sbin/*
The * is known as a wildcard and makes all the files in the sbin/ folder executable
Open the post-boot file in the nano editor- this may not be installed yet, see the ipkg guide:
Now copy and paste this file into the editors window (in windows, you can copy the text in the browser then right click in the putty terminal.
#!/bin/sh mount /dev/discs/disc0/part1 /opt i=0 while [ $i -le 30 ] do if [ -d /opt/etc ] then break fi sleep 1 i='expr $i + 1' done swapon /dev/discs/disc0/part2 /opt/etc/init.d/rc.unslung
To save the file in nano, you need to "write-out", hold control and press 'o'. Now exit, hold control and press x.
Note that whilst this is saved for the current session, as soon as the router reboots, it will have forgotten all this and all your hard work will be lost. We need to save it to the flash:
flashfs save flashfs commit flashfs enable reboot
Thats it, now the hard disk should be mounted automatically after boot every time!
If you wish to set your Harddisk to enter standby mode after a certain intervalcheck out the HDD Standby guide.
