Every time I log into the dashboard, I get the message: “Stable updates are not activated.”.
Which is quite annoying as I have to money to purchase a license (I will once Rockstor proves worth it, and after I replaced my probably dying drives).
Now my question is (as the title suggests), how do I disable this message?
As @Fredrik points out the testing channel updates is probably the one for you then.
Also I would just like to point out that this is not a “Licence” choice but an ‘updates channel subscription’ choice. A detailed explanation for why this was put in place and how both channels helps to support Rockstor development is available in the Official Docs under the Update Channels section.
Rockstor is predominantly GNU GPLv2 Licenced along with a mixed bag of js library licencing and the stable channel subscription is to help ensure the whole Rockstor endeavour is more financially sustainable; at least that’s the plan .
Please see the following forum discussion that lead to the current arrangement:
The problem is, I just want to get rid of the message.
I do not want the “testing” channel because my whole network relies on the NAS (if it fails, I’m kinda screwed).
I know that I can not choose for the stable channel either because I don’t have a license, so why can’t I just dismiss the message forever without having to choose a channel? (I rather have it run in no channel that has been running fine for now than I risk losing all my work on a testing channel)
