Synology-Xpenology


Hi, just found this site while googling "linux on Synology NAS" when I came across this site. I have and old Synology diskstation DS1513+ running DSM 6.0.1-7393 Update 2. Also have an Xpenology configured box running DSM 5.2-5967 update 2.

Whilst I'm running Windows 10 Pro on my desktop machine, I putty into both the DSM boxes and want to get reaquainted with Linux.
Hopefully, with familiarisation, I'd happily scrap the Micro$oft OS for a Linux variety. I'm also looking for ways to upgrade the Xpenology box to DSM 6.

Hello and welcome to LQ.

On some of those nas devices you can get to a small amount of linux in some form. They are embedded OS's and not always linux. I don't believe you will find it useful to learn linux on a soho nas.

If you want to get your feet wet in Linux then consider one of a few much better choices. Consider running a free Virtual Machine, consider one of the Live media either cd/dvd or usb. There are some online sources to get acquainted as in SuseStudio.com also.

Don't have a clue how to update that unless you want to build an image for it.
