I had to renew my NAS, and the location of the pictures folder changed.
The NFS mount of the movies seem to still work.
So, somehow I cannot recreate how I set the folder. I can go to the settings menu of the screensaver, where it at the moment says “/mount/pictures” and it plays the movie posters as pictures.
But how to add the new NAS folder?
the movie source via fstab.
For the screensaver pictures I am not sure.
I was just about to check the file…
But I just realised that I might have forgotten my osmc password - is there a way to reset this?
Holding SHIFT while booting the vero (plugging the power in) does only break the boot up - I see the “please wait” logo and then nothing more.
Holding STRG does nothing.
Holding ESC has the same effect as SHIFT, and I need to unplug the power.
Do I make a mistake here?
really? Oh no! It took me some time for all the sources and configuring the fstab mounts.
Is there no way to get to the console with the vero?
Or at least get the backup files out of the box?
I mean, its up and running, I can watch movies and all…?
I just tried the SHIFT again and suddenly I was on the recovery console.
The timing seems to be crucial, but I could not point to what I changed.
Anyway, the new unix pw is set, and the path in the etc/fstab file is corrected. The mount still works because the old pw (which is the NAS login) is still given in the .credentials file.
One more question: Now that I can SSH into the VERO again - how do I backup the backup elegantly? And if I should ever need to reset the Vero, how can I load the backup from an external source? Is there a manual for this somewhere?
