You need to use the ARM build.

is there a tutorial?

I’m not sure but it should be very simple. Download the armv7 binary and extract it. Then, in a terminal, go to where you extracted the files and run the vault with ./safe_vault I think (I’m writing this blind so be aware I might not have it exactly correct).

thank you! does it know --datadir?

I don’t know what that is.

You have it working?

I think data gets stored in a directory in /tmp and don’t think you can change that yet, if that’s what your question relates to.

yeah, running from a micro sd, so I’d need to set the data storage to an external hd

Yes, that will be possible. If it isn’t supported yet it will be soon.

You can change the location of the chunk store by modifying the chunk_store_root config entry in safe_vault.vault.config.

For example, if I wanted to use my Desktop folder, here’s how I would modify safe_vault.vault.config:

  "wallet_address": null,
  "max_capacity": 2147483648,
  "chunk_store_root": "/Users/frabrunelle/Desktop"
