Hi,

I'm totally happy with my 2.4 Etch MIPS setup running Twonky and a few other bits, except for not having USB support. I tried following a few articles on nas-central, but got stuck when some of the dependencies required 2.6 kernel. Is there a workaround that gets me USB access (I don't mind manually mounting drives if I have to), or will I need to upgrade to 2.6?

I have read the links from the 2.6 Lenny page on nas-central, but it is all greek to me! I could do with some real help upgrading if required.

Thanks a lot,
Mike

What exactly do you mean by "USB support"?

I got a bit muddled for a while and couldn't get my linkstation to mount a usb filesystem. I've managed to get it to do that now, but can't get read-write access to ntfs. I've tried installing things like ntfs-3g, but I keep getting messages suggesting I have unmet dependencies and need kernel 2.6. I'm still wary of embarking on a kernel upgrade unless absolutely necessary, seeing as I don't really understand the terminology let alone the instructions on the wiki.

If you could sort this one out for me, it'd be the jewel in the crown!

Regards,
Mike
