Re: Can you customise Filesystems at installation?

I now know that you cannot customise filesystems at installation. Does anybody know if IPFire does any alignment of partitions?  (I expect it doesn't because many people use it on SDCards and the like) I ask because 2 MiB boundaries are good for the alignment of many SSDs.  Perhaps I shoul...

Darn.  Looks like I may have made another incorrect assumption here.  I'll have to 'pinhole' (or hairpin) ntp too.  :(

Re: Firewall dropping internet access from Blue & wiki clarification

Thanks very much XerXes! No, I can't ping either.  The firewall is dropping that also apparently due to a "DROP_Wirelessforward" rule? I do wish to keep my GREEN and BLUE networks separate. I don't have the DNS page in the web GUI, apparently (according to the wiki link you referenced...

Firewall dropping internet access from Blue & wiki clarification

Hello, I have a basic RED + GREEN + BLUE system configured (I'll link my Fireinfo profile in future).  Since a reboot, clients on BLUE are unable to connect to the internet because all DNS traffic to the IPFire BLUE interface is dropped. I've already searched these forums and came across two si...

Re: Override NTP settings

Both wiki article and webUI are misleading: I found that ntpd runs as a daemon and uses ntp.conf when "Manually" is selected in the webUI, but when periodical sync is selected, daemon doesn't run and IPFire uses deprecated ntpdate to sync time at given intervals. Thanks Den, if that's sti...

Re: Sourcing compatible 5Ghz WiFi PCI(e) cards

... They list that it supports Linux too but I would still wait a bit. Yes, I don't believe Linux is supported by Qualcomm/Atheros yet as I understand that the ath10k driver was pulled after it had first been released. I contacted ThinkPenguin recently and ended up having a really helpful conversat...

Re: Sourcing compatible 5Ghz WiFi PCI(e) cards

I was going to test 5ghz but was unable to find my Alfa AWUS051NH which is the only usb nic I have that can do 5ghz.  If my nexus 7 first gen was compatible with 5ghz I would make more of an effort to move over to that spectrum. I can confirm that it does seem to work.  It does display th...

Can you customise Filesystems at installation?

Hello, The computer I'm installing IPFire on has both an SSD and a Hard disk.  I'd like to be able to customise the filesystem structure, so that /var/log and my proxy cache will be on the Hard disk, while most of IPFire and a file share will be on the SSD. When doing the installation I'm only ...

Re: Sourcing compatible 5Ghz WiFi PCI(e) cards

Hey f22luke... This is what I'm using right now: m I think I'll try it out in 5ghz mode and let you know if it works. Could you please let me know if you've been able to try this? 802.11ac is not supported by most distros yet.  I know that the atheros ath10k drivers will add support but it is s...

Re: Sourcing compatible 5Ghz WiFi PCI(e) cards

Isn't Australia a Member of some Asian economy union Hehe, er no, not exactly!  Things sometimes arrive quickly from China (but we're not significantly closer than the US to them) and I believe our local tax isn't applied for overseas purchases under $1000. On that note, the only "Compex ...

Re: Sourcing compatible 5Ghz WiFi PCI(e) cards

Thank you for your input all (especially Stefan)! The radio that I'm using is more expensive because it is industrial grade.  It has the Atheros AR9590 chipset in it.  I just mentioned it as an example but you should shop around and buy something that fits your needs.  The way I shop ...

Re: Sourcing compatible 5Ghz WiFi PCI(e) cards

The HCL is only a list of verified compatible cards.  I actually have a few cards that work but aren't on the list yet. I have tried 2 different Intel mpcie cards to no avail.  They work as clients in other distros but not as access points. Thanks again!  I realised after making my l...

Re: Sourcing compatible 5Ghz WiFi PCI(e) cards

Ok, so does IPFire only support the WiFi cards noted in the Wiki or are these only the cards which have been tested? The list in the wiki seems very small.  As I mentioned in my first post, the Linux kernel supports significantly more cards than these. Hi f22luke, Thanks for that.  I'd nev...

Re: Sourcing compatible 5Ghz WiFi PCI(e) cards

Hi Trymes, I'm confused - are you asking a related question (you're looking for 5Ghz USB / or functionality in a laptop) or trying to answer mine?! I was personally asking about a PCI(e) card as I don't want to use USB. The networking page in the wiki (linked in my first post) does list one USB adap...
