Re: [nslu2-linux] Can NSLU2 run with USB flash only?
- I just though I'd put my two cents in.
The setup metioned below would work fine with the 3.18 beta firmware,
that's the configuration I had for a while. Be advised that the slug will
by default format three partitions:
you'll most likely want to disable swapping on a flash drive so you don't
kill your flash drive with excessive writes. If you partition the flash
disk yourself you can also regain the storage space that would be wasted
in the swap. Take a look at the howto on custom partitioning.
