Description

Having the landing zone as root is problematic.

Things like Sabnzdb etc will use the landing zone as part of it's default download location.

It would be useful to either a) have landing zone in a separate partition during install and/or b) be able to instruct the landing zone to be changed within the GUI at a later date.

This would reduce instances of root being full which can cripple a system, especially for new users, and in cases where the landing zone/OS is on an SSD, would reduce R/W operations thus increasing the life of the drive.

History

#1 Updated by modem7 4 months ago

Whilst I am aware that one can change the landing zone via the CLI relatively easily, this is only per share and can be quite a time consuming process which can be prone to user error.

Having this set in the HDA UI would reduce user errors + would be more easily able to see space left etc.

The other aspect of this, is that if this fills up as greyhole is busy doing something (especially when using the /mnt script), then a lot of system functions stop working. This should be set to /home as standard, not root.
