OpenSlug NAS

Posted 04-04-2007 at 08:54 AM by Caysho

I recently got myself one of these.
I flashed it with OpenSlug 3.10, and I'm doing the following with it:
  • Sharing a 250 GB drive with samba.
  • Sharing a printer (Samsung ML-1740) with cups
  • Torrent box with transmission and dtach
  • NTP server with the listen option in the OpenNTPD configuration file.

I want to change the torrent software to rtorrent, but there's a few problems with it on the Slug. The solution to the first problem doesn't work for me, and I'm using ext3.

GRUB question

Posted 03-30-2007 at 10:36 AM by jdestruel

Before I ask my question, here is my setup:

1. I installed XP pro and I backed it up.
2. I installed Suse 10.2 with GRUB active i.e. when I boot, GRUB loads and I can select which OS I want.
2. My partition on which I had XP got corrupted and I had to re-format and reload from the backup.
3. when I reloaded from the backup, the MBR was the original one, without GRUB. So, now when I boot, it goes directly into XP. I don't see Linux anymore.

My question:...
