DietPi support for NSLU2

Post by StefanoBettega »

Hi, I was wondering if there is any support for NSLU2 hardware
It's a quite old device, but it still rocks

This is the reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NSLU2

It had also OpenWRT support https://openwrt.org/toh/linksys/nslu2 and I was using it until some days ago, with a custom distribution named SlugOS https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SlugOS

Unfortunately none of the above are still supported.

The CPU is an ARM-compatible Intel XScale IXP420 CPU, it has very few RAM and FLASH, but I was able to run SlugOS from an external USB hard drive.

Any idea?

Thanks in advance and Happy Easter

Stefano

Well DietPi is not an own operating systems itself. DiePi is a set up scripts on top of a Debian OS base image. So you would need to have a standard Debian (like Armbian, Raspbian or a Debian minimal) running on your system and could try to install DietPi scrips afterwards.
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

Uhm, so this is probably the dead end.

Debian supported NSLU2 in Debian 9 https://www.cyrius.com/debian/nslu2/ so I can repack my NSLU2.

Thanks,
Stefano
