[FIXED] Use Ramdisk

  • I have to say, this dialog box is quite confusing. I have made no changes to the firewall regarding the ramdisk and this dialog box pops up. I would think either:
    A) only pop up after a change
    B) reworded to not confuse the end user as the OK reboots immediately regardless of ramdisk change, cancel bypasses the reboot.

  • I too have wondered about this. I , made a change to the crypto module under advance -> miscellaneous and got the same message. Didn't really want to restart my firewall at that time but I didn't want the changes I made to not be saved so I restarted the firewall.

    There was a fix put in for that in 2.4.3

  • Probably should have mentioned, I am on the latest dev release and the issue still persisits.

    When testing the patch, I am getting the below error.

    Set the path strip level to 2

  • Same window appears when "saving" a change as above with the patch applied. No changes made to ramdisk.

  • I'm still having issues with this dialog displaying. Now on the latest nightly, the dialog box appears as soon as you go to the miscellaneous tab.

  • Netgate

    The ramdisk pop-up seems to have been caused by PR 3776. The issue should be corrected in the next snap

  • With the newest snapshot 2.4.3-DEVELOPMENT (amd64) built on Wed Jan 10 20:07:40 CST 2018 FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE-p6, the issue has been fixed.
