Only first few changes made in config is saved.
Detailed description in forum thread:
http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=1920244&forum_id=507590

  • Config is locked - no new config is saved
  • Factory reset is ignored (both consolle and GUI) - same config after automatic reboot
  • 0.685b2 does not have this problem on same HW
  • System seems to run stable on .686 stable, but is unusable without the ability to save config.

    Hi SchOX
    a. I can not confirm your situation.
    b. I never seen something similar.
    Do you run 'full' or 'embedded' version?

    Regards,
    Dan

    Hi Dan,
    Thanks for your followup:
    a) - Yes situation is unchanged, running "0.685b2" on HW works OK - "0.686 stable" has this bug for me.
    - Only first few changes made is changed (eg switch to DHCP, set bootup commands in gui (sysctl hw.ata.to=10)) at a "random" point, it stops saving config/locks config.
    HW is :
    MSI K8MM3-V - mikro ATX - K8M800 (chipset : VIA K8M800 / VIA VT8237R)
    AMD Sempron 3000+ 1.8GHz Socket 754
    2x256MB Ram
    USB flash drives tried : TwinMOS Mobile Diskx4 512MB + SanDisk Cruzer Micro 0.1 512MB

    b) I did a search on the forums, and could not find anyone else suffering from this bug, so I did not suspect it was a common bug.

    c) fresh "embedded" install on new usb-flash drive from "0.686 stable Live CD" on USB flash drive with all partitions deleted In a windows environment.

    Does this behaviour still exists with 0.686.1?

    I Will try to test this, but I found a "workaround" for this problem by installing FreeNAS to a CFcard with a IDE/CF converer.
