creating new boot image in 5.x betas?

I was using the instructions I used from 4.7 (and prior iterations) to add in permanent apps.

 

See:  http://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?topic=871.0

 

Will this technique not work for 5.x betas?  I can't seem to get this to work.  So far, I've gotten it to boot--but it's not working as it should (no disks, disks show but aren't actually there (size unknown etc).  All my applications are loading in, python, httpd, other various support packages... perhaps I'm missing something before I sync?

 

I'd prefer this technique to plugins, but if its not going to work I can fall back...

 

thanks for any insight...

That was written for 4.1 and I am surprised it still worked for up to 4.7 honestly.

 

My suggestion going forward... move to using unRAID plugins (which are native in 5.0b11+) or unMenu packages.  There are a number available each way, so have fun trying that out as I doubt you will find much help trying to get the old method to work again.

Mainly, its a hassle getting everything working as I need/want it.  I'd like to be able to load whatever I need to run a standalone system (so slack may be a better choice in the end)--without having to wait for 20-40 pkg's to install at run time.  I also haven't seen an apache plugin--which I use for mod_proxy/rewriting all the different ports to URL's--easier to remember. 

 

That's another thing that unRAID/unWEB/unMENU are generally not friendly with since you can't set a web/context root.

 

Overall I think it's just the ease of configuring it like a standard linux box--the plugins just get confusing, upgrading things is more confusing.  If i can just load what I need and not have to worry about the thing resetting any changes I made because it loaded to the memory and not actual disk... that's what I want/need.

 

I'll dig around for the slack build with unraid 5x--It would have been nice if this would still work, or someone could chip in a root cause for why it wont.  I'm more willing to accept it if it has a reason as to why, functionally.
