[SOLVED] Boot local but load tcz from web - possible?
« on: December 18, 2015, 09:54:54 AM »
Hi!

Is it possible to boot TC locally but load all tcz extensions from a webserver?

It's not a netbooting as there will be the basics on local (as the base microcore), and after boot (or before it finishes), download and load all required extensions.

Any ideas?

Sure, it's possible. It's just the "cloud mode" automated, after all.

For best user experience, you should use a local mirror on your LAN. In bootsync.sh, do something like
Quote
su tc -c "tce-load -wi foo foo2 somethingelse"
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Thanks curaga!

Did't thought in that simple way! Sometimes I forget to stay simple!
