• Thinking of upgrading to PC

    From hal@21:1/177 to All on Friday, March 05, 2021 13:00:58
    I have a small intel NUC like pc with a more disk space and a little more cpu lying around

    I got my BBS up and running on an old Pi 3 (1GB ram + microsd flash) that was lying around. I also have an unused mini PC (4GB ram + lots more storage) -
    in addition it is intel based rather than arm so I may remove some issues in getting any doors up and running at a later date.

    As far as I can see there is an option to replace executables only

    install replace <dir> Replace executables in <dir> with latest

    So I'm guessing I can just

    1. copy over the whole /mystic directory from my Pi
    2. download the intel x64 linux version and extract from archive
    3. run ./install replace /mystic to replace arm binaries with intel binaries

    Anybody see any problems (assuming I a using the same version [the latest] of mystic on both machines)?
