I have finally been able to start working on my Pine64 again. It’s been awhile and I decided to just scrap my old Pine that was running v145. After reading about how anything below v6 was going to have no support I thought it would be in my best interest to just start new.
I am trying to get my Pine setup as a downloading machine. I have it so I figured why not. I also have an excess of external HDD around. I always try to get the main rootFS to run off the external HDD. Better life support and I never have to worry about storage.
I was able to move the rootFS following everything k-plan had written up here without any problems.
I should note that I did change how the SD card & USB are getting mounted from UUID to /dev/ in the drive manager. Not sure if that will change anything but I figured you should know. There will never be anything else that is getting plugged into this setup I didn’t think it was an issue.
Thanks for helping me out. If I have to change anything or start from the beginning let me know. I’ll also help anyway I can in writing up a new tutorial for this when we get it working too. I did put in a feature request that the transfer rootFS was an option for the Pine in the drive manager too. https://dietpi.com/forum/t/transfer-rootfs-for-pine64/1905/1 I would be happy to test anything that comes out of that too seeing as you don’t have a Pine to test on.
