Is it possible to overwrite the backup boot partition in gs1900-8? I would like to use the backup partition flash mem to get more under
The gs1900-8 has ~16mb of flash mem. I was hoping it would be enough to install a couple small packages but upon getting the device I found out that I could not install one package with the default openwrt 21.02.1 release.
root@OpenWrt:~# df -h Filesystem Size Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/root 2.5M 2.5M 0 100% /rom tmpfs 60.4M 876.0K 59.5M 1% /tmp /dev/mtdblock8 1.7M 1.6M 92.0K 95% /overlay overlayfs:/overlay 1.7M 1.6M 92.0K 95% / tmpfs 512.0K 0 512.0K 0% /dev root@OpenWrt:~# df -m Filesystem 1M-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/root 3 3 0 100% /rom tmpfs 60 1 60 1% /tmp /dev/mtdblock8 2 2 0 95% /overlay overlayfs:/overlay 2 2 0 95% / tmpfs 1 0 1 0% /dev
I think it is allocating 8mb/16mb per boot partition. (between primary & backup) So I was hoping to have around 4-5mb of flash mem but really only have 1.7mb for use available. I am going to try to custom compile openwrt without things like luci and see where that gets me, but it would be great to use the backup boot partition
