ROKOS Tutorials / Auto Login
December 05, 2016, 02:25:30 am
Hi,
I would like Rokos to automatically login the user (Pi) and start Bitcoin Core fully automatic without any input needed at all, so fully automated boot-up.
Also I would like Rokos to periodically check if Bitcoin Core is still running ok and re-boot if it's not.


Any help would be appreciated.
kind regards
james

Solved:
problem is two fold.
1st you can not start/initiate the Bitcoin wallet for the first time from a remote computer; keyboard and monitor must be connected to the Pi directly.

2nd. permission must be set for media/pi/mounted volume fot the user to acces. I used sudo chmod -R -v 777 * and that worked (not sure if it is the best security setting...)

So now I have 248Gb Volume created from 2 tiny 128Gb Sandisk Ultra Fit usb 3.0 flash drives, nice, neat and small package  8)
Tip:  Format USB sticks to Flash Friendly File System (f2fs) instead of the Linux ext4 file system to avoid errors

Hi,
My 128GB usb drive was nearly to it's maximum capacity when the full blockchain was loaded.
So I bought another identical sandisk 128GB USB 3.0 Ultra Fit Flash Drive and performed the following:
1- made a copy of all the files of the old 128GB usb drive to my PC using FileZilla (saves me to download chain again).
2. Re-installed fresh version of Rokos v7 Core.
3. made a Raid 0 of the two drives using http://projpi.com/diy-home-projects-with-a-raspberry-pi/raspberry-pi-raid-array-with-usb-hdds/
4.mounted the 248GB Raid drive
5. started Bitcoin Core Client.
I can see in Task manager that it starts but then stops again.

Owner of the 248GB drive is Root.

What is going wrong here? Any ideas?
