Hi,

Happy 2021 and wish you all the very best. It looks like we may need more user friendly documents. At least a document that anyone can read to get the Digital Library (DL) up and running. I would like to work on such document. I need your help. I am using the AR150 (GL_AR150-b2d) and my goal is to get the DL online for testing. Here is what I have done so far:

Setting up the router

1) Flash the router with openwrt-Digital-Library-01-AR750-VER-1.0-RC3.2-AR750-ar750-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin
2) Connect to the DL as admin
3) Secure the DL a bit
  • change the default admin passwords
  • Change time zone
  • Change Passphrase (for Digital-Library and Digital-Library-Guest)
Setting up the USB drive (40GB+)
This is where the confusion starts. Remember my goal is to get the DL up and running in the simplest way possible. I would worry about adding/removing/adjusting stuff later on. I am assuming  I need to add the content of this page (https://github.com/villagetelco/digital-library/tree/Ver-1/DIGITAL-LIBRARY-USB) or usb zip file (https://github.com/villagetelco/digital-library/blob/Ver-1/DIGITAL-LIBRARY-USB.zip) in the root of the USB drive. right?

Uploading the contents to the USB Drive
Here I would like to upload the basic library files (not the images) as described in the section of "The basic library image includes:" in this page (https://github.com/villagetelco/digital-library). Is there a script i need to use that would download the content to their respective locations in the USB drive? Do I need to download manually from oer2go?

"a basic library image has been developed containing some 40GB of content, largely drawn from the OER2GO website (oer2go.org). The library contains material with licences that allow free use." Would you please educate me where to download/access that 40GB content? That's a lot of data, is there a host i could FTP to to obtain the data?

Thanks for your assistance,
--Pascal
