OpenSlug NAS

Posted 04-04-2007 at 07:54 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.

I have an old scanner that I'd like to hook up. I wanted to use it as a scanner server, but saned wants xinetd, and I don't want to install that. Instead, I've got it working locally, but I need to sort out the size of the scan for it to be useful.

There is also a wiki page about automatically pulling the pictures from a camera when it's plugged in, which I may try some time.

The drive and the printer are connected to it via a USB hub. I have a 1 GB flash disk being used as the root file system plugged into the USB port on top. The USB drive has a 1 GB swap partition on it.

I found the NSLU2 in Perth via which has a nice advanced search option.
Should be cheaper to run than a full sized tower as a fileserver :)

Edit: Before I put on lighttpd, I was using apache, and for some reason I had to run "update-rc.d S80apache defaults" to get the init scripts sorted. There was an additional problem due to it not liking the symlinks I used for /opt/etc/init.d/ to /etc/init.d/
