WD Passport Wireless Pro (sorted with certs)

Not a formal howto, but in case anyone else searches;

The WD Passport Wireless Pro runs a 32-bit ARM Linux port and the normal distribution almost worked perfectly except that WD doesn’t ship with any CA bundles. Thankfully strace helped tracked down which dirs/files rclones SSL build was looking in.

I grabbed the most recent CA bundle from https://curl.haxx.se/ca/cacert.pem (other unverified but public-service bundles are available, but read https://curl.haxx.se/docs/caextract.html to see what they do) and placed/renamed it to /etc/ssl/ca-bundle.pem

All is well.

Glad you fixed it!

I’ll just note there is a section in the FAQ about this: http://rclone.org/faq/#rclone-gives-x509-failed-to-load-system-roots-and-no-roots-provided-error with a very similar solution.

Thanks, I did a search on the error text and the FAQ page did not come up, oddly. Will try again just to be sure.
