Bug #5493

Console and web UI updates fail on full installs when ramdisk is enabled.

Estimated time:

Affected Architecture:
amd64

Description

Steps to replicate:

1) Enable ramdisk for /tmp and /var (mine are set to 256mb each).
2) Reboot
3) Attempting to upgrade from either console or web UI results in "ERROR: It was not possible to identify which pfSense kernel is installed".

Additionally, both available and installed packages pages show as empty, and Dashboard is unable to detect if a new version is available.

Disabling ramdisk followed by a reboot makes upgrades available again.

See https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=102710.0 for discussion.
