USBMount: shortcut to mount USB drive to /mnt/disk
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2cSlWc2yl7EZHdWMzJJQkhHOHc

Extract to FAT32 flash drive, boot with it plugged in.

As it turns out the shortcuts on the main screen can also just be basic scripts. After seeing mentions of auto mounting disks, figured I'd throw this together to let you mount it manually without having to use SSH.

Script is pretty basic and is as follows

#!/bin/sh if [ -d "/mnt/disk" ]; then mount /dev/block/sda1 /mnt/disk else mkdir /mnt/disk mount /dev/block/sda1 /mnt/disk fi

This could be vastly improved with checks to unmount on consecutive launches, but just wanted to throw this together for now.

Enjoy!

How include format (+32GB) NTFS ?
DavidHelkowski Jan 21, 2018 @ 1:38pm 
By the way, the Linux Kernel on the Steam Link is not configured to include NTFS write. If you want to be able to write to a NTFS formatted drive, then you will need to build a kernel module and load it to be able to do so.

To make writeable NTFS kernel module, the NTFS support itself must be built as a module. I am not sure if a dynamic loadable kernel module can overwrite something built in to the currently running kernel.
Hello guys.
When mounting usb, the WI-FI driver falls off.
And after restarting STEAMLINK, I can not use wireless internet. Please tell me what to do.

If got some Inspiration from your App @parkerlreed [Linux represent] and I tryed to make an SSH Enabler App but it wont recreate the enable_ssh.txt file after I removed it.

This is my Shell Script:
#!/bin/sh > /mnt/config/system/enable_ssh.txt
Its pretty basic too.

From Terminal I can remove and recreate the enable_ssh.txt file.

Umm why not

#!/bin/sh if [[ -f /mnt/config/system/enable_ssh.txt ]]; then rm /mnt/config/system/enable_ssh.txt else touch /mnt/config/system/enable_ssh.txt fi

That way every time you run the "application" it will toggle SSH on and off.

I just posted https://github.com/clach04/steamlink-usbmounttoggle - supports umount (it toggles between mount and unmount).
