Sorry for so many questions, but is there a way to access the SD card via USB?? Would be awesome if I didnt have to completely power down my rack to copy files over (total first world problem here)
There is (via USB-ethernet) - it’s not trivial though, and requires some familiarity with the command line…
- Getting a USB-ethernet dongle (or maybe two, depending on your computer) and an ethernet cable
- Modifying a script on the SD card temporarily so you can log in to a Linux shell on the SSP
- Connecting a keyboard to the SSP, logging in to Linux and configuring the networking to allow ethernet over USB (writing some magic incantations partially specified in the thread below)
- Configuring your computer’s networking correctly to match the SSP
scpto copy the files over from your machine
It’s a one-time setup, and then you can plug in and copy stuff over… although because of the way the USB-ethernet seems to work, you might still have to power cycle when you first connect it!
Instructions, should you be willing, in the below thread:
I could do it, but not sure I want to bother with it, thank you for the instructions though!
