Accessory for NSLU2 & Linkstation: Drivestation nice w/ power savings modes
- Drivestation arrived yesterday, must admit very nice job on the
packaging of the 160GB drive with no fan. Appreciate the auto power
off mode and USB power down utility which allows Drivestation to power
down when the NSLU2 is powered down. However, unlike the Linkstation
we haven't found a way to put the NSLU2 and attached Drivestation to
sleep as Linkstation can.
? Does the Linkstation allow power up on demand ?
For now, since I erred and got a Drivestation, it will serve with the
NSLU2 until I see a similar deal on the Linkstation. Hope the
Outpost.com listing is accurate, that both the $30 and $50 rebates are
good on this Drivestation ! Latter is good only through end of today
Shame, have to repartition the Drivestation to gain large file support
for backups (Retrospect, Amanda), since the default FAT32 format tops
out at 4GB per file.
Does the Linkstation support repartitioning an attached USB device
such as the Drivestation into multiple partitions ? That is something
we have to go through some hoops to do on the NSLU2 with hacks to
existing firmware or unslung kernel and setup via telnet or SSH into
