    Hey all I am starting this thread for some of the general questions I may need to ask regarding the NAS200. I am hopeing to upgrade the kernel and the glibc and libraries that are currently there to something more recent.

    My first question is how much space is there on the NAS flash chip? I know I could probably find this out ( I haven't checked other then the info you put on the wiki jac) but I am hoping one of you guys might just know. I could just look at the image that gets created but this really wont tell me the size unless they used every last bit for the image.

    The NAS200 has 8MB (binary megabytes of course) of Flash memory:
    • 1.75 MB is used for the kernel
    • 6 MB is used for the root filesystem
    • 128K is used for the configuration
    • 128K is used for the ecos/Redboot boot loader
    Note that the block size of the flash chips is 128K, that's why the configuration and boot loader take up so much space.

    This and much other information can be found on the NASi200 wiki and the NSLU2-linux NAS200 wiki, but I've been thinking of starting a FAQ thread... Maybe this is a good time...

    Hmmm I looked on the wiki but I guess I dident look hard enough thanks for the info tho and I like the faq. Its def a good idea to keep general information around to refer to.
