New experimental installation mode
Iâ€™ve just added a new method for installing FreeNAS: Itâ€™s a real â€˜installâ€™ method that no more use the RAM drive.
For preparing these change, Iâ€™ve begin to rename the platform name:
Here are the new platform names:
- FreeNAS-i386-liveCD: For the CD-ROM release (using a RAM drive)
- FreeNAS-i386-embedded: For the classical .IMG release (using a RAM drive)
- FreeNAS-i386-full: For the release installed with the new method (real install)
These new name will permit to add â€˜amd64â€™ release, or other architecture.
I think that it will be complex to add an â€˜upgrade featureâ€™ with the â€˜fullâ€™ release, but possible.
Now I need to fix all bugs that I’ve added with these changes (I’ve just found that firmware upgrade doesn’t work with the ’embedded’ for example).
