Choosing a distribution for NAS


Hi

I'm planning to build a NAS using spare bits of PC. I'm hoping to run the OS from a CF card.

I want the machine to host music and also general files. I'm planning to install TwonkyMedia Server for the music.

I have two questions:

1. I'd like to choose a small distribution, but one that is easy for me to deploy and manage (I'm new to Linux, but I am an IT professional). What shall I use?

2. I'd like to understand the implications of using Compact Flash. Will the OS need to write to disk? Can I configure my installation so that the CF card is read-only and provide a small writeable partition on my hard drive for any required IO? Should I not bother, and put it all on HD? (My motivation for using CF was to limit power-consumption/noise/heat).

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Sandy

You could try: http://freenas.org/freenas

There are a number of small distributions that you could customise to do what you are after, but it's worth checking whether freenas does everything you need first.

Remember you don't have to install every package when installing a Linux distribution therefore the size of the installation depends on what you are going to do with it.

If you choose to install on CF ensure that you are not using the CF for swap space as this may shorten the life of the card.

linux distribution for Intel SS4200-E

I picked a Intel SS4200-E for cheep. I installed a e4600 dual core cpu to get better raid5 write performance, to find out the stock kernel isn't compiled for smp or much memory (512B stock and can be upgraded to 2TB).

I would like to know how to recompile the kernel with smp, or to find a different linux distribution to run (it would need to run headless). it is possible to ssh into the machine during bios post, and to install linux from a command line.

I've downloaded the "Open-​source and GPL components" from intel.

here i'm ssh'd into the box.

The following links give examples to how to recompile a linux kernel.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/...de_PREEMPT_SMP

http://rute.2038bug.com/node45.html....00000000000000

Most linux distributions will run headless, however I don't know how to install a linux distribution without access to a local keyboard/video/mouse
