    Hello,

    I've seen that everyone has the same complaints as me. I had a long battle with linksys in order to get them to email me this and my problems were still there. I hope someone can make a good Opensource from it or make it useful. Oh, if someone wants to host the file elsewhere, be my guest.

    The filename of this file seems somewhat strange to me DG308_100_2375.bin

    I have just gained another version for the NSLU2 that has a closer naming convention to its owner NSLU2_V23R76.bin

    I'll put this on the site for download shortly.

    Yeah I have, but I haven't seen any changes at all.

    I thought so as well, but that's what linksys sent me. I can screenshot it if you'd like. The one I got from linksys is 2 days old....from them to me that is. They said it was the latest.

    I've added screenshots of the NSLU2 running that and the email recieved...minus the personal info.

    it maybe the latest official, however there is a newer r76 on a beta site that I grabbed, I am not doubting your file, just its filename seems very strange for an NSLU2, thats all.

    Sweet.....I'll try that later on when my drive copy finishes. I hope it fixes the permissions problem I was having as well as the FTP filesize limitation.

    changes will be minor since version numbers between r73 and r75 is small.

    what type of limitation does the ftp issue have?

    Nothing that really bothers me, it freaked me out more than anything. I ghost my machine after I load it. So I store it on my NSLU2. My image is round 5.2 gigs and when I was making sure my FTP was accessible one day it showed my image as 385 megs. I thought, maybe it shows wrong, so I tryed to download it and all I got was 385megs. After that I began to experiment by breaking the file down into Volumes using Winrar. I used about 1.4 to 1.5 gig volumes. And sure enough the FTP server showed the correct file size and also gave me the correct size when I downloaded it.

    It really doesn't bother me since that's the largest file I have and who would want a Ghost image of my machine anyway right? But I think other people might have an issue with it.

    what is the format of the drive? some hard disk formats have limitations on single file sizes.

    The drive is EXT3...i've tried NTFS/Fat32 and get the same results from different drives.

    I know FAT32 has a 4Gb limitation for a single file. NTFS should be fine though.

    The files show fine over the network and http. But the FTP just doesn't work right.
