The Home Assistant published Docker container running on a Raspberry Pi is configured to have log files resident in the application directory rather than in /var/log. Because these Raspberry Pi installations typically use Micro SD cards which have a limited number of writes, it is often advantageous to use DietPi as an o/s as they offer a preconfigured /var/log directory that resides in a RAM disk. Since I do not have the skill to rebuild the Home Assistant Docker container, I wanted to see if it was possible reconfigure it to use the /var/log for the specific log files. My attempts have been a failure up to this point. Below is what I have tried:
Setup system logging
$ sudo journalctl -u systemd-tmpfiles-setup $ sudo systemctl status systemd-tmpfiles-setup
Forward those logs
$ sudo nano /etc/tmpfiles.d/home-assistant.conf d /var/log/homeassistant.log 0755 root root - - f /srv/homeassistant/home-assistant.log 0644 root root - -
Add the bolded command to the published Home Assistant local Docker container creation command with:
docker run -d \ --name homeassistant \ --privileged \ --restart=unless-stopped \ -e TZ=America/Los_Angeles \ -v /srv/homeassistant:/config \ **-v /var/log/home-assistant.log:/config/home-assistant.log \** --network=host ghcr.io/home-assistant/home-assistant:stable
As I said this has not worked.
Any suggestions or ideas?
