    For those who feels more comfortable with "old style" file managers than with only the shell prompt: Midnight Commander.
    If you find that any feature is not working, please report it.
    For installation just follow the instructions. For execution ALWAYS start MC with mc200 script instead of mc. Because the script is fixing some mc requirements that make it work in NAS200.

    Installation instructions:

    1. Download Midnight Commander 4.6.1 for NAS200 running jacX from here.
    2. Save it in the root of your configuration partition /harddisk/volume_X/conf (where X depends on your NAS200 disc configuration, for example X=3 for RAID-1)
    3. Make sure that you are in the root of the configuration partition: cd /harddisk/volume_X/conf (where X depends on your NAS200 disc configuration, for example X=3 for RAID-1)
    4. Unpack the tarball: tar zxvf mc-NAS200-4.6.1.tar.gz.
    5. Now you can launch MC: /harddisk/volume_X/conf/usr/bin/mc200 or if /harddisk/volume_X/conf/usr/bin/ it´s already part of your PATH enviroment variable you can just mc200

    Don´t launch MC by just executing mc, always use mc200 script to launch MC since some things needs to be checked/changed in order to make it run nice.

    Enjoy it!

    Cool! :cool:

    May I ask how you built it? Or did you extract it from a binary package of some Linux distro?

    Hi Jac,

    I compiled it in another machine running Trustix (already dissapeared distro) that use the same versions of gcc and glibc. :)
    I tried also to cross-compile it in an Ubuntu machine, but it was impossible. Later, after a few hours of trying, I found in the bugzilla system of MC that there is an open bug about cross-compiling it, right now is not working. :mad:

    Actually the last available version was 3.0.5.
    I have no idea where can you get it and since it was discontinued a long time ago I´m using CentOS for new server deployments.

    Four simple steps:

    1. Go to here http://www.linksysinfo.org/forums/search.php

    2. Make sure you select "Linksys Network Storage Devices" and search for what you are after.

    3. READ, READ, READ

    4. Then ask questions in the correct Thread.

    Good luck :doh:

    This is a common *nix-newbie mistake (no insult intended).

    Under Linux and other Unixes when you type the name of a program, the shell does NOT try to find the program in the current directory first, it only tries the directories in the PATH environment variable.

    To run it from the current directory, simply enter ./mc200 instead of mc200.
