Cannot change download directory

Post by i2pornot2p »

Hello!
I am running i2p (normal install as service - /var/lib/i2p etc etc) in a Whonix workstation. It is working as good as you would expect being ISP>Tor>i2p, but it is usable for my needs. The only issue I have is with i2psnark. The Whonix virtualbox image is limited to 100GB, so I have a 500GB virtual disk image attached and mounted at /homer/user/Storage. For some reason I cannot set snark to download to this location. I have changed owner to user/root/i2psvc and all same result. I can read/write that location with other programs installed in the workstation. I even tried adding that location as an exception in the apparmor profile and it is the same result. I am probably not doing something really obvious... or I am failing to understand something... any help here?

Thanks :)

I use a different I2P, without I2PSnark, so in general. To permanently defeat such problems with disk space, I would work with "mount bind" or "mount rbind". In this way, the drives can be replaced by larger ones if necessary, without the configurations of the programs noticing anything.
