- Become root.
- Run the following commands:
- /usr/share/vboot/bin/make_dev_ssd --remove_rootfs_verification
- reboot (Cr-48 will reboot and you'll need to re-login and get back to root)
- mount -o remount,rw /
- mkdir /usr/local/bin
- cat /sbin/window_manager_session.sh | sed -e 's/\/usr\/bin\/cros-term/\/usr\/local\/bin\/bash-term/' > /tmp/window
- cat /usr/bin/cros-term | sed -e 's/\/usr\/bin\/crosh/\/bin\/bash/' > /tmp/bash
- sudo cp /tmp/window /sbin/window_manager_session.sh
- sudo cp /tmp/bash /usr/local/bin/bash-term
- sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/bash-term /sbin/window_manager_session.sh
Now when you press CTRL+ALT+T, you should drop right to a lovely little Bash shell saving you 6 precious keystrokes (S, H, E, L, L, and Enter). Be sure to enjoy your newfound free time.
I'd like to implement this tip, but I'm running into a problem on the first step.ReplyDelete
as root, mkdir /usr/local/bin gives me an error saying that it cannot create the directory because it's a Read-only file system.
Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks for the help.
Good catch, forgot about a few commands I had done earlier that gave Read/Write access to /. I've updated the post with full instructions.
Hi there! Thanks for the tip, but it doesn't seem to work for me. I suspect that the problem is coming from window_manager_session.sh.ReplyDelete
On my CR-48, window_manager_session.sh doesn't exist, but rather, window-manager-session.sh does. I followed the instructions, save that little "typo", but didn't work. Advice?
starting from #1. I can't get this to work !ReplyDelete
worked for me!!ReplyDelete
Jay (and others), note that this will halt automatic updates, as it is a change to the root filesystem. I think some users are not realizing this when performing these steps (as I just saw another user post about it in the pilot group).ReplyDelete
This public wifi network is cutting off my cr-48 from accessing the network because I have exceeded my max time on the network this month. How do I go In and update my tracking info through bash commands so that I can get back on the network?ReplyDelete
