- WiBSD runs from memory, therefore you can easily and
safely upgrade it remotely
- it has a very small memory/disk footprint
boot directory is the whole system
- the flashcard (disk, CD, ...) contains just the
boot directory and a
wibsd directory is for configuration.
There is only one config file (
possibly some SSH keys and OpenVPN certificates.
||WiBSD is configured from just one place
only - |
/etc/defaults/wibsd.conf for anything you want
to know about all possible features of WiBSD system. This
file is selfdocumented and contains resonable defaults
||Changing the configuration is easy. Just RW
remount the flashcard, edit |
and then remount flashcard (disk, ...) read-only.
||You may need to rerun some script after you
change the configuration. Automatic detection of config
changes is not implemented yet.
||See how WiBSD is easily remotely upgradable.
||Upgrade command can be used even for
upgrading configuration (new remote installation for
example). This can be useful together with initialization
dialog - see the next picture.
||You have just some remote hands and no
qualified administration on the other side? No problem -
just let him log in as admin and give him a few
simple instructions. Once you can log in (there is default
user wibsd), you can do remotely anything you want.
||Automatic system check is performed during the system
reboot. We use WiBSD even at places where physical access is
very problematic and then this feature sometimes comes in
