NSLU2-Linux

The information on this page is obsolete. It refers to a very old version of Unslung.

If you want to use Unslung, please read the information about the latest version in the Unslung page.

The "ext3flash" variant has all the same changes as UnslungStandard, and the following additional changes:

  1. Changed the kernel USB detection routines so that when a flash disk is plugged into either Disk1 or Disk2, a /proc/hd_conn or /proc/hd2_conn file is created instead of a /proc/usb_conn file. This fools the Linksys applications into expecting an ext3 partition on that disk.
  2. Confirmed V2.3R25-uNSLUng-1.11-beta-ext3flash does not mount flash on slot 1, /proc shows hdd_conn but doesnt mount when flash inserted to slot 2
  3. V2.3R25-uNSLUng-2.4-alpha mounts 512MB Sony flash on slot 2, Linksys web util formats it ok as ext3 and mounts on:

Filesystem 1k-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 305911 8243 294509 3% /share/hdd/data
/dev/sda2 123923 4142 118502 3% /share/hdd/conf

There has been a succesful test with an unslung root partition on a 256MB flash drive. The drive is in slot two, and was formatted through the linksys web-interface.

Filesystem 1k-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sdb1 59997 4162 55216 7% /share/flash/data
/dev/sdb2 123923 13231 109413 11% /share/flash/conf

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdb1 1 250 61969 83 Linux
/dev/sdb2 251 766 127968 83 Linux
/dev/sdb3 767 1024 63984 82 Linux swap
