Yes, that's not that uncommon here

Do a search on the forums and you'll find other posts related to the dbox and streaming. I don't use Apache, Samba or FTP (which is a security nightmare, with Apache you should at least try to switch to WebDAV) - I switched to lighttpd
as a webserver, it is really fast and comes with fastcgi integration - and works well with Ruby on Rails
. I also use my LinkStation as an AFP server with Netatalk 2 and of course NFS for my dboxII. I did write an article for the Wiki here
with information on NFS on MIPSel LinkStations.> It is the bandwith enough for Streaming?
Of course there is enough bandwidth. The main bottleneck is the slow ethernet interface on the dboxII running at 10BaseT half duplex. That's a maximum theoretical throughput of 1.2MB/sec. - which is no problem for the LinkStation. I get about 4-6MB/sec. with NFS on my PowerBook (and 6-8MB/sec. with AFP). There might be problems on the dbox when you have movies on "Premiere" in 16/9 format and two language versions + 5.1 sound, but the LinkStation can cope with that.> Is there a difference to the "normal" firmware?
Of course, otherwise it wouldn't make sense to provide them here
. There are different way to achive a Debian conversion, either you try FreeLink, which works like a normal Firmware update or you try the 'debil' script, which swaps partitions around and keeps the original firmware for swapping back (but do look at the bugtracker
or you'll end up with an unreachable box).
