What exactly is Backed up?

The Backup function on the Admin panel reads: "Backup complete contents of KiwiSDR by writing Beagle filesystem onto a user provided micro-SD card".
Whats the exact meaning of that? Does that mean just the KiwiSDR software and all of its settings are going to be save or does that instead mean the whole filesystem will?



  • I guess its backing up the whole thing.
    The problem now is I'm getting this:
    ADMIN: received microSD_write
    KiwiSDR: copy eMMC image to micro-SD card
    Version: [1.20151007: gpt partitions with raw boot...]
    include /root/Beagle_SDR_GPS/tools/kiwiSDR-SOC.sh

    `-mmcblk0p1 179:1 0 3.7G 0 part /
    df -h | grep rootfs:
    Error: [/dev/mmcblk1] does not exist
    writing to [/dev/mmcblk1] failed...
    write failure
    error code 1
    ADMIN: system returned 1
    Any ideas?
  • The problem seems to be my 32GB micro SD.
    Worked fine with a 4GB card.
    I guess I have all the answers to my questions now... Thanks anyways!
  • Yes, everything: Debian distro, Kiwi software, Kiwi admin customizations, installed third-party extensions etc.

    You end up with a "flasher" card in Beagle lingo. That means whenever that card is installed when you power-up or reboot your entire Beagle on-board eMMC filesystem will be re-flashed from the card (that is either a good or bad thing so be careful).

    Not sure what the problem is with using a 32GB card. Probably some Linux limitation.
