More on the NSLU2

Well, having played with a real linux distro on the NSLU2 for a while, I’ve reverted it to the stock firmware. It’s now nothing smarter than a disk-sharing box. Sure, it was cute being able to do these interesting things with it, but after a while you realise that you never actually ssh into it, and mt-daapd, which was the real reason I wanted the ability to install software on it, eats all the CPU, takes about an hour to start up with all the music on the drive, and almost 10 minutes to connect to, so I never use it. Let’s just revert to something I trust.

Aaah, technology.
