Want to add folders and connection errors ( mirrordirector.raspbian.org)


(Bo Herrmannsen) #1

flashing the oct 2017 image to a new sd card

while the image is downloading i’m wondering what folders/mount points are on the write enable partition?

i’m going to add a speedtest script and that saves to a spreadsheet hence the need that it outputs to a place that is write enabled all the time

might be able to answer this one myself as i did not do a good enough search

/dev/mmcblk0p3 /home/pi/data ext2 defaults,rw,noatime,nodiratime,errors=remount-ro 0 2

so i should just save in a new folder under /home/pi/data

is that correct?

Yes, that is the standard “always read-write” mount point.

that worked fine

but while i’m at it i might as well update i thought

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

but i get connection errors
