Used firmware WL500gp- from Oleg

In the forum is information available for the installation.

I used the first time installation HowTo part 1 and 2 from Marcnesium.

Remark for this HowTo

If you use a large disk, like me, the mke2fs command needs a lot of memory. Enable swap after you made it, so:

$ mkswap /dev/discs/disc0/part1
$ swapon /dev/discs/disc0/part1

I also made a /etc/fstab file, instead :

/dev/discs/disc0/part1 /opt ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/discs/disc0/part2 swap swap defaults 0 0

More documentation can be found at Another install Howto with samba & Transmission

In general you have to keep in mind that when something is configured in /etc in then flashed with:

$ flashfs save && flashfs commit && flashfs enable && reboot

I found also a HowTo for the first time here.

OptWare ipkg’s To install OptWare ipkg on Oleg’s firmware:

NSLU2-Linux - FAQ / Optware-uClibcBuild browse:

$ wget -O - tr -d 'r' > /tmp/
$ sh /tmp/

Accessing the samba drive from Vista I had an error message in Windows Vista when i was browsing in my to the Asus share. The message was: “A remote procedure call (RPC) protocol error occurred”. I solved it by using “Map Network Drive” in Vista and putted there the full path: //MyAsus/nas

Additional configuration

Add to the file /opt/etc/profile:

alias ll='ls -l'
alias pg='psgrep'
