DO NOT CREATE SWAP AS RAID0! (you gonna want more stability and less performance: how to change swap from raid0 to raid1)
follow this guide to get full blown Debian on your kirkwood QNAP NAS:
1. hook your QNAP NAS to your DHCP-enabled LAN
2. use QFinder to find the IP, configure it as you normally would
3. ssh into it and backup firmware installed to usb stick:
cat /dev/mtdblock0 > mtd0;
cat /dev/mtdblock1 > mtd1;
cat /dev/mtdblock2 > mtd2;
cat /dev/mtdblock3 > mtd3;
cat /dev/mtdblock4 > mtd4;
cat /dev/mtdblock5 > mtd5;
4. download the firmware:
busybox wget http://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/stable/main/installer-armel/current/images/kirkwood/network-console/qnap/ts-219/initrd.gz
busybox wget http://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/stable/main/installer-armel/current/images/kirkwood/network-console/qnap/ts-219/kernel
busybox wget http://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/stable/main/installer-armel/current/images/kirkwood/network-console/qnap/ts-219/flash-debian
busybox wget http://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/stable/main/installer-armel/current/images/kirkwood/network-console/qnap/ts-219/model
5. run the setup
Updating MAC address…
Your MAC address is 00:08:9B:8C:xx:xx
Writing debian-installer to flash… done.
Please reboot your QNAP device.
Once the command has completed, you can reboot your QNAP device:
6. wait for long beep after reboot , re ssh into it:
7. continue your normal debian setup and smile 🙂
you don’t have all the overkill QNAP iTunes-Server software on it anymore…
