Linux Network Storage , Need help detrming the distro


Hi , Ive just got a quad drive nas delivered today on the instalation cd i found two applications torrentflux and syabas . Im looking for a way to download a list of links from rapidshare i have a premium account so its effectivly a bog standerd http download which pc download managers have no problems with .

So id like to know if this is just a customised version of linux and if i can install a normal linux package on it . I dont have much to go on i spotted an apache2 folder in the system memory the torrent flux application was in the file

torrentflux-1.11.bz2 - BZIP2 archive

in the root of the archive the file packing_list

Code:
[Package -- Version=1.0]
Vendor: GPL 
Name:   torrentflux
Version: 1.11
SupportProduct: GeminiNAS
PackageType: new
Options: reboot
Description: A BT for the GIGABIT-NAS
Copyright: GPL
VisibleDepend: OS=2.6.0
PKG: apache2.bz2
PKG: mysql.bz2
PKG: others.bz2
PKG: php.bz2
PKG: python.bz2
PKG: scripts.bz2
PKG: base-cgi-torrentflux.bz2
PKG: base-ui-torrentflux.bz2
PKG: base-ui-torrentflux-i18n.bz2
[/Package]
Is theyre any standard linux distro for NAS devices or is this just apache ?

Is this a normal linux server package ? and how difficult would it be to install a http downloader on the nas ?

If it helps the package can be downloaded at wedamart[dot]co[dot]uk/torrentflux.aspx and ive uploaded a screen of the webgui at i34[dot]tinypic.com/wkl2lw.jpg
Thanks

Hi, Welcome to LQ.

One of these commands should reveal what type of linux you have...
commands for knowing which linux is running
Code:
lsb_release -a
cat /etc/redhat-release
ls /etc | grep release
Hope that helps.

Regards Glenn

So what did you get when you ran those commands as well as the following if it's not redhat?
Code:
cat /etc/*release*
cat /etc/*version*

Well i cant run any commands because its configured through a webgui from the ftp structure id guess its a web application running ontop of the linux distro . Thats the only thing that i have access to but it runs php and mysql .

If i can figure out the package thats all it should need to run a http file downloader . Since its a webgui im assuming the instalation is preformed by uploading the package to the nas and then installing it normaly in the background . Is the archive i posted a normal linux package ? Its hard to know where to start without knowing the distro all i have acess to is the webgui and the complete (os folder included) filing system through ftp

Code:
file:///etc/
Never mind, that won't work. But, you say you do have access via ftp. There's probably ssh or something like that, as well.
