Has anyone had much joy in putting Linux on the “slug”? (A Cisco / Linksys NAS device)
I’ve come across this site: http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/ and it looks like it’s a fair bit of effort, so, just seeing if it’s worth doing really…
I do have various old PCs lying around, but I’m looking for something that doesn’t have a 500W PSU running 24/7…
Either that, or has anyone got other NAS hardware running (i.e. QNAP / Synology / etc) with Linux / FreeNAS / OpenMediaVault / etc?

Last time I checked PSU's were moderately efficient - ie if you've got 50W of hardware running inside your probably not using much more than 60W - best to check if its a problem.
