      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:
      http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Optware/Packages

        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...
        Downloading http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/slugos5be/cross/unstable/cups_1.4.6-1_armeb.ipk
        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

            I'm having prob;ems with mem sticks at the moment, just trying for the forth time to get turnup
            memstick to write to the memstick properly.
            Trying a new stick preformatted ext3 with a swap partition at the moment.

                  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.
