Hi! I want to tell how to install full-blown Debian Testing distro to MBL with no interference with current firmware. You may upgrade firmware at any time without loosing installed Debian Testing.
Optional, you may install minidlna and/or transmission during installation by answering "y" to appropriate questions.
This is an "sandbox" where you can install/remove/configure anything you want with no harm to the firmware! As for me, I'm using tvheadend to record IPTV, apcupsd to shutdown MBL gracefully on power failure, btsync and transmission for P2P file exchange.
Installation is quite simple:
wget httр://mbl-common.googlecode.cоm/svn/chroot-install/install.sh sh ./install.sh
(type URL manually, as a newbie I'm not allowed to post links.)
Chosen chroot'ed services will be started on boot time, you may start it manually by:
To enter to Debian Testing type:
To exit from Debian Testing:
To start a new service from Debian Tesing on the boot time install and configure it in chroot'ed Debian and add service name to /DataVolume/debian/chroot-services.list
To stop chroot'ed services type:
To restore chroot'ed services autostart after firmware update:
To remove all traces of Debian Testing installation type:
/etc/init.d/chroot_debian.sh stop /etc/init.d/chroot_debian.sh remove
reboot MBL and remove it's files:
rm -fr /DataVolume/debian/
