Title: UI7 Upgrade consumes available memory
Post by: RichardTSchaefer on October 21, 2014, 01:49:35 pm
The UI7 releases continues to eat up most of the memory on a Vera Lite.
The upgrade does not delete the file: /etc/cmh-firmware/mios.squashfs when the upgrade is completed.
This files is about 50% of the the available usable space on a Vera Lite.

YES,  But the MCV update procedure should do this!

If we dump the install package, will that impact the box failsafe install recovery??
!! Careful ... may be needed/or not - Who needs another brick...

Here is what VeraLt Ui7 has for us in the storage Dpt:
root@MiOS_xyz:/# df -h
Filesystem                Size      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/root                 4.5M      4.5M         0   100% /rom
tmpfs                    30.5M       4.4M    26.1M  15% /tmp
/dev/mtdblock7      11.0M      7.8M      3.2M  71% /overlay
/dev/mtdblock8        6.3M      6.3M         0   100% /mios

Where  mios.squashfs is 6,434,816 K (= ~ 50% of 11M indeed)

(The mobo looks like it already has the JTAG/serial header to reflash an image on lost bricks. On the plus side: the HW looks like *top grade* to my trained eyes - Txs MCV.)
