      Hi Gurus,

      I managed to get it reflashed, but Unslung didn't want to play, and debian is now to large.
      In the end I flashed it with SlugOSBe/slugosbe-5.3-beta-nslu2.bin
      Added a 2 GB flash drive, and I think the file system put on the stick. a few I/O errors

      On the beasty there is now

      Both those dir s look empty. I was using debian before and I could get a package list with apt-get,
      but what do I use on this ?
      Trying to follow web pages is going around in circles. I want to load Cups on it to use it as a

        I have two NSLU: one with unslung and the other one with sluosbe.
        On both I'm using optware (which is using ipkg).
        If you decided to go with sluosbe, install optware and use packages from
        the optware feeds:

          Hi
          I've run the setup-optware.sh and it has downloaded ipkg.
          It seems to be having problems downloading packages,
          I've been trying to install cups and getting

          root@LKGD6BA7D:/# ipkg install cups
          Installing cups (1.4.6-1) to root...

          wget: short write
          Nothing to be done
          An error ocurred, return value: 22.
          Collected errors:
          ipkg_download: ERROR: Command failed with return value 1: `wget --passive-ftp -q -P /opt/ipkg-K3q0dn http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/slugos5be/cross/unstable/cups_1.4.6-1_armeb.ipk'
          Failed to download cups. Perhaps you need to run 'ipkg update'?

          The url for the packages seems old , where does ipkg store its config.
          In the mean time I'll try and find it and update to the one you gave, hopefully I maybe able to
          install joe, I really don't like using vi
          Thanks

                Google for debian 6 on nslu2 . Debian 6 arm nslu2 is slightly slower than the others you listed but is nearly as feature complete as desktop debian gets on

                  Google for "debian 6 on nslu2". Debian 6 arm nslu2 is slightly slower than the others you listed but is nearly as feature complete as desktop debian gets on that tiny device.

                  Google for debian 6 on nslu2 . Debian 6 arm nslu2 is slightly slower than the others you listed but is nearly as feature complete as desktop debian gets on

                          I saw on the earlier page that Debian 5 was to big so it was no longer supported.
                          I'll give Debian 6 a try.
                          And hope the print modules are either in the kernel or easily added
