2007.12 images for ixp4xxle and ixp4xxbe machines uploaded (including nslu2 images)
You can now get the angstrom 2007.12 release images for base-image and
nas-server-image for ixp4xx machines from:
(little-endian and big-endian respectively).
* base-image is a fairly bare-bones image that will allow you to format
disks and external media and install additional applications from the
feeds. There are also nslu2 specific binary 8MB images which can be
directly uploaded to a standard NSLU2 with upslug2. If you have
upgraded the internal flash in your NSLU2 to 16MB, there are specific
images for that as well.
* nas-server-image is the beginnings of a full-featured server image,
designed to support most things that you would expect from a network
attached storage device. It also allows access to the feeds to install
more applications. It is too big for an NSLU2 - it's intended for
ixp4xx devices with internal hard disks, like the NAS100d, DSMG-600 or
The set of boards supported by the ixp4xx kernel includes the Linksys
NSLU2 (tested), Gateworks Avila Network Platform (untested), Giant
Shoulder Inc Loft (untested), Intel IXDP425 (untested), Intel IXDPG425
(untested), Intel IXCDP1100 (untested), Iomega NAS 100d (tested), D-Link
DSMG-600 RevA (tested), and the Freecom FSG-3 (tested). Note that the
ixp4xx kernel expects you to have a sane bootloader that presents the
officially registered machine id and correct ATAGs for your board. The
Apex second-stage bootloader is included in the nslu2 specific binary
8MB images for this very reason. Apex also supports the nas100d,
dsmg600 and fsg, and binaries for these boards can be built using the
nslu2-linux kernel subversion repository.
After installation and network setup, be sure to do 'ipkg update ; ipkg
upgrade' to get future bugfixes and security updates.
