Has anyone tried to build a custom OS image for the My Book Live or My Book Live Duo? I am getting very frustrated with how crappy the WD image is and how much shit they have installed on this thing. I am debating doing it, but not sure if I have the time.
On a whim I wanted to see if I could get Gentoo working on my Duo. The results look very promising. Mind you it is not a full replacement yet. Right now I just untarred one of their stage3 tarbals in a directory, mounted /proc /dev /sys, and chrooted into it. The utilities appear to be working properly. I have not compiled anything yet as I am worried about over heating the processor. Going to to see about getting a heat sink for the processor. There is about a centimeter of clearance between the CPU and the hard drive. Then probably rig up a fan.
