Topic: Offline firmware documentation info depository
Ok, I think I have most of it figured out. Let me go through this to make sure I have it so far....
Download Zurks firmware onto a usb drive.
Somehow acquire your profile information. Can this be done with winscp and copied locally off the chumby? or does it have to be downloaded with wget? If so, how can I stop the putty log from truncating the URL?
After you get your profile info, it has to "match" the one on the usb drive. In what way? Do you mean make the chumby.com references redirect to the local usb widget directory? If so, is that all that needs to change?
Then run putty, enable the log, and do the stop/start control panel command. After ALL the widgets have cycled, exit and load the putty log file into notepad and run a find command for anything starting with http. Some of this at the beginning seem useless, but the ones during the widget cylcing need to be saved one by one by cutting the URL and using wget to grab them from chumby.com. (The title of the widget you are saving is listed a few lines after the url in the log)
This is where my headache starts to become painful.
So I have to put the wget downloaded files somewhere (in the www folder?), and a profile I can't find somewhere, and it should work, right? Where do they go? Do they completely replace existing files? Is the profile the file located at \lighty\html\xapis\profile\show? Or is that a list of what is displayed?
What about widgets that require input originally, like imageurl or weather widgets. Where do I add zip code info? Or are all these type of things now inoperative?
I hope this isn't too much to ask, for us newbies it blows our minds, you guys make it look easy. I haven't done stuff like this since the Commodore Amiga days. I have learned a LOT in a week (p.s. Thanks!), but I'm not quite there yet. As soon as it clicks in my head, and I can get it working, I'll make a chumby guide that should help anyone.
