Install Debian Linux on Buffalo LinkStation Pro NAS Device

Today my Buffalo LinkStation Pro ™ arrived. The first thing I did after opening up the box was install Debian on it. This was a pretty straightforward experience thanks to the guys at the LinkStationWiki. I followed the instructions here and didn’t have any problems at all.

I’m hoping this will make a nice, little, cheap (I got my 250 GB model for $170), and quiet version control and defect tracking server (among other things – it’s running linux afterall). A couple of years ago I ditched my linux desktop machine in favor of an iMac G5. I wouldn’t ever dream of switching back since the Mac is a dream but it is nice to have a linux machine at home again.
