I2P Anonymous Seeder on Tiny Core Linux
I have a good amount of downloaded content on my old file server. I built it about ten years ago and its four 2TB WD Green drives, while they haven't kicked the bucket yet, could very well do so soon. I don't have 5.6TB of ready backup storage and certainly have no viable way of storing such backups. At the same time, the tracker at http://tracker2.postman.i2p is missing a lot of content, so I can save my warez (showing my age there, right?) from digital destruction, and be a tremendous help to the community at the same time.
Why Tiny Core?[Bearbeiten]
- Lightweight. Like, super tiny. Can happily run in RAM - AND it runs X.
- In spite of running in RAM, still crazy versatile.
- You can just copy the backup files to another pre-prepared thumb drive in case it fails, and it'll boot again just fine.
To cook up this delicious dish, you will need:
- A computer with n-1 hard drives that can boot off a USB drive.
- A thumb drive - or a blank CD if your computer can't boot off a USB and it's 1999
- A Tiny Core Linux 32-bit ISO (don't get 64-bit, java isn't in the apps repo yet)
- Clearnet access to your computer during install
This is a work in progress. I am building this as I go, so the instructions could stop abruptly at any time.
- Use a tool like Rufus to write the ISO to the thumb drive.
- Boot the thumb drive on your system.
- Install the installer.
To be completed...
