Re: Fedora on NSLU2/Synology/etc.

I'm wondering if anyone tried to run Fedora on a small home NAS,
in the class of NSLU2 or Synology 108j. I'm hacking on software
that permits easy management of storage clouds and I'm thinking
about creating a testbed populated with something cheap ($100 or so).

Various embedded derivatives of Linux, and even full Debian,
have been there for some years.  It runs, slowly; fast enough
for 1.5Mbit/s DSL, not fast enough for 12Mbit/s cable modem.
Systems like WRT54GL (similar CPU speed as NSLU2) manage because
the switch is in hardware.  Don't even think of strenuous
native software development on NSLU2.

The NSLU2 is cramped and very slow, and is near end-of-life.
Look into the SheevaPlug ($100; 4X as fast, 16X the RAM of NSLU2)
or the TS-109 Pro II  http://www.qnap.com/Products.asp
Also  http://www.gumstix.net/ for truly a truly timy system.
