NSLU2-Linux
view · edit · print · history

I am currently working on a library terminal based on OpenSlug (an NSLU2) and Emilda.

I will write down complete instructions here as I proceed with the project. The end results will be a terminal with a PoS? screen, barcode scanner, numpad keyboard and receipt printer. This setup is also perfect for a PoS? (PointOfSale?) terminal.

The hardware used for this terminal consists of:

 * An NSLU2 (naturally)
 * A USB-hub
 * A USB to serial converter based on the PL2303? chipset (used for the PoS? display and receipt printer).
 * A barcode reader with a USB connection that acts as a normal USB keyboard.
 * A USB numpad (keyboard).

As of 2005-07-31 the base system works with the hardware devices (you need the 2.6.12.2-r6 version or higher of the kernel and the usbhid, input, evdev, usbserial and pl2303 modules). The client application is being written as we speak.
