Ok, first of all, this will work so rest assured you'll eventually get
your media where you want it.
First of all do you have TwonkyVision yet? Twonkyvision has a
mediaserver that can run natively on your Slug. If you haven't check
software I won't be able to help you.
Second, is your slug "Unslung". The "unslung" project is a replacement
firmware which doesn't change the underlying function of your slug but
instead of running it's firmware it instead runs from your USB drive. (I
may be oversimplefying this, I'm sure some Linux Guru could correct me
here). Once your slug is unslung, you'll be able to get root access and
install your server software. Check out
Play around and get
familiar with your slug. You'll probably want to install the following
packages using unslung.
ipkg install bash - Bash shell, a better default command prompt
ipkg install busybox - Better tools
ipkg install dropbear - ssh server
ipkg install ntpclient - network time protocal client. Sync your
slug with the atomic clock in CO.
ipkg install nano - A nice little file editor.
Ok, now you get into the good stuff. If you've followed the directions
correctly to "Unslung" you'll now have a telnet access to your slug,
excellent. Map a drive from windows to your slug. Copy the mediaserver
for NSLU2 to the mapped drive. Telnet into your slug and mv the
mediaserver file you just copied to /opt/bin (ie "mv
Change the permissions of the mediaserver to make it executable.
chmod 755 /opt/bin/mediaserver.
