24397Re: Lifecycle when booting (only using) USB thumb drive.
- Mar 31, 2010I ran an unslung slug for 2 and a half years off of a 512mb thumbdrive without problems--and without doing anything about swap (ymmv)--until I repurposed the slug (the drive is still working holding files for an mp3 player).
That said, openWrt can install completely in flash and do what you have said you want to do. I have 2 slugs in different locations doing that--monitoring temperatures and reading other sensors--no usb drive is needed. I don't use one-wire, tho--I communicate with a PICAXE microprocessor which reads the sensors and sends messages via serial to the slug--through a usb serial dongle.
