Now you're talking my language.
Hi all -- new to the list, been watching it for a few days. :)
I have one of these set up - ipkg is set up really nicely with OpenSLUG.
It was running as a remote Asterisk machine while I was setting up a test
Asterisk PBX implementation for the main office.
I blew that out, and it's currently my rsync machine that also handles my
remote ssh work (openSSH), an iTunes server, and my main download machine.
VERY nice little box! Only real problem is when downloading the OpenSuse
DVD iso, I realized that there's a 2GB filesize limitation that I haven't
looked into overcoming yet.
In all likelihood, I'm fairly certain that compiling wget 1.10 (as opposed
to wget1.9 that comes from the ipkg tree) will solve that problem.
For any of you that do pick one up, don't forget to void your warranty by
de-underclocking it! [
