Hi, I’m new here. I first tried storagenode on Windows 10. It was great but keeping my computer online all the time started to give me anxious and it was not optimal for a home compute. So I’ve decided to stop it for that time. Month later, I got the idea to give it a try on my router. I bought an external 2.5inch 5TB hard drive for that and my router is an WRT3200ACM where I suppose it’s far good enough for the job. My router is always on all the time unlike my computer. After that, I realized that it is not the same architecture than my computer, so I may need to compile myself the source. I don’t even know if it will work at all and it is where I need help.
What I need if possible is straight direction on how to do that. My skill on linux is between basic to medium. I just need some starting point where to begin like, in the git site what source I need to download to begin with? There is so much branch I can’t get my mind to it so which one I need to get? And to compile it, it is like “make” in the source directory? The docker, I didn’t know what it was for and after a little reading about it I was “why storj force us to use a VM like container like that withing an open source community?”. The docker to be honest I don’t think it has his place here. About how to manage security it’s only privacy or policy concern only (meaning individuals or enterprises).
I just need to know what I have to compile (identity, storagenode and anything else like docker if it is really needed) and from which branch. Thank you.
