Fast wipe in advanced menu



  • Hello,

    I want to add a “Fast Wipe” option in my advanced menu, it’s possible ? If yes, can you explain me how ?

    Thanks a lot.



  • So fog wipe gives you a timeout of 60 seconds (if you decide not to wipe the drive).

    Changing it in the fog settings doesn’t make any difference. Any way to disable that timeout or change it ?

    Then it gives an error about updating the database (even if the hdds partition table is zeroed), any way to disable that as well ? thanks alot.

    This line:

    kernel bzImage32 loglevel=4 initrd=init_32.xz root=/dev/ram0 rw ramdisk_size=127000 keymap= web=${fog-ip}/fog consoleblank=0 loglevel=4 capone=1 mode=wipe wipemode=fast mac=00:00:00:00:00:00
    

    Specifically the wipemode element, everything else is fine. Also you can change the BzImage and initrd lines to be whatever as well, though it’s probably safest to leave it as is.



  • What would need changing to allow the other wipe modes in the advanced menus ?
