=== Revolution Bails on Contest ===

----
It's official. We've given up on trying to get a response from the organizer of the Kurobox Contests. John Causey hasn't responded to multiple voice messages, emails, and even a message through one of his employees; although, he did respond to an email regarding a Kurobox order. More than 8 weeks without a response from anybody at Revolution. What can I say except that Buffalo Linkstation products are almost identical hardware and come with a 250 GB drive for not much more than a Kurobox without the drive and once flashed with a telnet enabled firmware, are indistinguishable from a Kurobox save for the color of the case.

Could it be that with Buffalo moving to the ARM based devices for their Linkstation Pro and Terastation Pro (and discontinuing most of the PPC based devices that Buffalo now has no need for Revolution?

=== Linkstation U-Boot port working on Kuro HG ===
+
----
Linuxnotincluded has done it again. This time he has ported U-Boot to the Kurobox HG. In fact, the same patch works with the Kurobox and Kurobox HG. This port works very well. It includes full network support and a minimal console that is controlled using the power and red buttons on the Kuro. It should also come as no surprise that this port has been submitted for the U-Boot bounty. Sylver, Timtim, and I (Dave) have been testing this port on both standard and HG versions of the Kuro Box and it has worked flawlessly. Head on over to the [http://www.linuxnotincluded.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/linkstation/u-bootinstall.html instruction] page and give it a shot.

I've been testing the [http://www.linuxnotincluded.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/linkstation/u-boot.html latest port of u-boot] '''which includes network support''' on my Kuro Standard. I've tested everything but the network and so far it all works. Check out the discussion at [http://forum.linkstationwiki.net/index.php?action=vthread&forum=7&topic=1310 the Linkstation Forums] for more information. Watch this topic closely. Although it doesn't yet work with the Kuro HG, a port to the HG would likely win the bounty as it contains network support. Even better is that the author is working on a port for the Linkstation HD-HGLAN which he believes will work on the Kuro HG.

For the unabridged version go to the [[John's_Suggested_MP3_Player|contest entry's wiki page]].

=== Kurobox Bounty Claimed? ===
+
== Even older news ==
It's official. Revolution is currently evaluating one contender for the U-Boot Bounty. With a bit of Luck The Nijino bootloader will pass the evaluation and win the prize. Several of the brave Kurobox owners have used the [[HOWTO_U-Boot|Nijino Bootloader]] with success. Some have not been quite as successful due to improper installation. The good news here is that there are many [[Building_a_JTAG_Interface|JTAG cables]] out there to test it and some that are available for unbricking any unlucky owner's boxes.

Head on over to the [[Building_a_JTAG_Interface|instruction page]] and start working on one for yourself. There are a limited number of kits available so if you want one, don't wait. With one of these you won't have to worry about bricking your Kuro ever again.

FC5 is available to those who are brave enough to install U-Boot. [[install_fedora|Install Fedora]]

A Japanese named Nijino has successfully ported Das U-Boot for the Kurobox architecture! This is great news for the community, and it has been made possible thanks to Revogear's [http://www.kurobox.com/revolution/bounty.html bounty], and Nijino's knowledge!

If you were thinking about installing Gentoo on your Kurobox, the process just got a whole lot faster and easier. The whole install including the emerge -uD world has been tarred up for your use. An installation and emerge uD world, which used to take a day or two can now be accomplished in very little time.

OSUOSL Thank You

Mon, 22 Aug 2011 12:38:49

A letter arrived on my doormat at the end of last week from the USA! Not very often I get post from there, after I opened it it was a nice thank you card from OSUOSL thanking us for our last donation. OSUOSL provide us with rack space and pay for our bandwidth, so this is the least we can do to thank them for helping us.

Thank you OSUOSL! Here is the card:

More Site Maintenance

Fri, 29 Jul 2011 20:30:01

This weekend we will be removing the following wikis due to lack of usage:

  • D-Link
  • Freecom
  • Linksys
  • Maxtor
  • Synology
In the future articles for manufacturers that do not have their own specific wiki will go in the main portal. When we have enough articles to justify a wiki for a manufacturer then we will create one and move the articles over.

In addition we will most likely be doing some updates to the rest of the wikis this weekend to bring them up to the latest version of MediaWiki. Also we are slowly fixing the links back to the new main portal – this work is on-going but coming together.

Site Updates

Sun, 24 Jul 2011 14:56:57

Today we updated all the forums to the latest version of phpBB and following this we upgraded the nas-central blog. Also we fixed an issue with news reporting to the wikis from the blog.

You may have noticed that we have changed the main portal back to a wiki too as this is useful for general articles that are not device specific. There is still some more content to restore to this area and a bunch of links that need fixing that link there from the other wikis – please bear with us while this happens.

Tonight also we will be looking at upgrading the bug tracker and possibly merging the foonas bug tracker into this area.

Thanks!

Donation Drive Update – Server Disks Needed!

Tue, 14 Sep 2010 21:43:05

We are looking to upgrade our storage on our server with a couple of 2 TB disks. To do this we need to raise approximately $550 USD. We will be using what is currently in the reserve towards this but we need your help getting the rest.

We are advert free and do our best to provide you with this resource thanks to your kind donations. Three years ago you helped us buy a new server, which is now hosted for free at OSUOSL – this is the first new server hardware we have needed since then.

We hope this will be easy to achieve if everyone can give a little!

Please visit http://www.nas-central.org/donations – thank you for your help.

In the next post we will be letting you know a bit more about the NAS-Central infrastructure at OSUOSL.
