USB Doungle booting a custom kernel
BGCA_TECH last edited by
I have Pfsense loaded and configured on a Gigabyte GBBX-BT-2807 mini computer. This device only has one network interface, I therefore have to use a USB Ethernet adapter to add the LAN interface. I have done so. I have to added the network interface each time the unit reboots. It is a very simple task, using "usbconfig -d X.X set_config 1" from the main menu selection 8 shell commands.
What I want to do is configure a custom kernel that will configure this device on initial boot.
ANY help would be most welcome.

No idea what you mean by custom kernel… if it's not a pfSense-patched one, you'll have just heavily broken system. Why don't you install shellcmd package and run this as earlyshellcmd? (Frankly, I'd rather get usable HW.)

Wouldn't it be easier to dig up a supported USB Ethernet adapter? The ASIX ones can be found pretty cheap.
Or just run that command from a script at boot.
