Debian on NSLU2

Posted 12-04-2010 at 10:54 PM by Caysho

I have a spare NSLU2 (no longer sold) which I had originally intended to use as a backup to one I use as a fileserver (running OpenSlug).
I have been wanting to put a torrent client on it as well.

Ubuntu has an installer, but support has since been removed.

Initial install.
So I go with debian. The device has 32 MB RAM, so the oom killer kills the disk formatter.
Partition the drive separately - I have a 4 GB USB stick:
  • Primary partition 3 GB

Mythbuntu 9.10 (karmic)

I have been running mythbuntu for a few days on a Gigabyte EP45T-UD3L motherboard, Hauppauge HVR-2200 and nVidia GeForce 9400 GT, and it performs nicely.

It is housed in a SilverStone HTPC case, which is currently sitting on the floor waiting to be migrated into the TV display "cabinet".

It is controlled by an MS USB MCE remote.

I did get some tearing with VDPAU, but fixed it by disabling the composite extension in xorg.

Eee Box B202

I've got an Eee Box B202 now, using it for my main desktop with Ubuntu 8.04.1.
It runs well, though sometimes a tad slow - Firefox does occasionally get sluggish.
Ubuntu installed directly from an external DVD drive via USB without hassle, with a monitor connected via DVI.

There are two display problems:
Bug 233787
Bug 268529

I have the box mounted behind the monitor with the supplied VESA mount, and it's nice and tidy.

Dual boot with Windows 2000 and Kubuntu 6.06 on Intel D815EPEA2 motherboard

I get a 160 GB hard drive, and figured "this should be easy".

First attempt.
Windows installs ok, I had it create an 70 GB NTFS partition (slow to format).
When it asked me about partitioning, it sees 137 GB which it lists at the top of the screen, and also when showing the partitions created.
This is strange, but I don't think much of it - I figure if it can see up to and past 70 GB, then it doesn't matter.
Installed SP4 and other updates....
