Hey guys, here’s a proposition from yang on the Threefold Farmer Chat, with additional thoughts from @FLnelson and Avermhir.
The devs should implement an automatic clean on disks on boot, or an option with key combinations to do a clean of the disks.
For example, on boot you press ctrl+y and Zero-OS will do a clean. if you do not press in a 10 sec interval, it will boot normally.
This is inspired by the grub options: Option 1 = Boot, Option 2 = Clean.
As Nelson stated:
It’s is a neat idea to incorporate a setup tool into the zeroOS usb assuming it doesn’t introduce a security vulnerability.
Also, Avermhir said:
For DIY builds I think improved instructions on preparation for the machine will help alot. And perhaps some community open source tools to be used during the build process. You really need to check that everything works in the machine before deploying it with the Zero-OS boot. IMO having a ubuntu/linux app that you can put on a USB stick and use for verification of the hardware would be awesome.
What do you guys think?
