I'm using an R7000 with Entware + Transmission client. For the /opt partition where entware packages live I'm using a small 128MB flash drive. For downloads / network share I'm using a 1TB USB HDD.
Now my problem is that DD-WRT seems to have issues keeping the mount point of my USB HDD across reboots. This leads to a broken Samba and Transmission.
Now a couple of questions:
1. Why does this happen?
2. Why can't the interface have a way to manually specify mount points based on UUIDs for ALL hard drives?
3. How can I fix this?
4. If I manually mount the HDD using a script will I be able to also use under the Services > NAS tab? Samba share and DLNA like this:
Just name your partitions jffs and opt and those will mount automatically.
But indeed mounting can be a problem @eibgrad has a mount script to always mount the things you want.
Google that I will see if I can find it.
Isn't that script the same as going to the commands tab and add startup mount commands to the partitions I want?
Does the UI at Services > NAS tab pick my manually/script mounted drives so I can use them with Samba and DLNA? _________________ 3x Netgear R7000; 2x Asus RT-N16; Running DD-WRT v3.0-r44191 std (08/15/20).
I'm mounting my USB flash drive ext4 partition to /opt and my USB HDD ntfs partition to /mnt/data. The UI at Services > NAS is still able to pick both partitions and SMB file sharing works out of the box. DLNA was broken because whenever it starts /mnt/data isn't mounted yet thus it wouldn't pick any media. Restarting it after the partitions are mounted fixes the issue. Anyone looking to reproduce this setup may find their disks UUIDs using the blkid command.
I really wish DD-WRT had a way to manually specify UUIDs for multiple mount points, not just /opt. _________________ 3x Netgear R7000; 2x Asus RT-N16; Running DD-WRT v3.0-r44191 std (08/15/20).
