RE: [nslu2-linux] Re: Re: Squeezebox connection
- Hello, i ran nslu2 and squeezebox for over a year.
You can install slimserver directly on nslu2, it runs with perl engine.
You can use a crossover cable. But you will have to deal with connections between pc and nslu2 to updade music.
This solution is ok but slow. Cpu speed is only 166mhz with 32mb.
