I mentioned my new Linksys NSLU2 the other day. I’ve got it up and running (although I haven’t got all my data on it yet). I’m super-happy with it, mostly because it’s much smarter than its otherwise simple looks suggest. Y’see, under the hood, it’s a hackable (in the true sense) Linux box!
Getting it up and running from OS X was easy once I found this blog entry at Sample the Web. Of course, that sent me scampering across the ether to the Yahoo! group and then beyond to Tom’s Networking and the Linux on the NSLU2 page.
Now, I’ve reflashed the ROM, using uNSLUng from nslu-linux.org and added ssh and nfs support to the unit (the community calls it a “slug”… hehe). Next, maybe svn, Apache/MySQL/PHP, and media server capabilities…
These things are awesome! Get yourself one!
