Optware package for PowerPC based DiskStations
Het beloofde pakket, waarmee men de guide links kan laten liggen en een kant-en-klaar pakket kan installeren! Optware vormt de basis van het systeem. Dit pakket is essentieel voordat een ander pakket, zoals SABnzbd, geinstalleerd kan worden. Zou moeten werken op DS-101g+, DS-106e, DS-106, DS-106j, DS-106x, CS-406, RS-406 en CS-406e.
For our English users:
The promised package, where you only have to install a package! This makes the old guide obsolete. Optware is the base system for any other addon, so you have to install this before installing addons like SABnzbd.
Requirements for this patch:
- A Clean DiskStation
- You have to place syno-optware.tar.bz2 in your 'public' directory of your DiskStations' share / ftp
- If you need to set a DNS address for the DiskStation (there was none added here when mine was clean), create a textfile called 'syno-dns.txt' in your 'public' directory of your DiskStation. Edit it, and type / paste the IP address of your DNS server (usually the IP of your router, same as default gateway). Thus, the content of this -only- contains the IP address.
- Open the DiskStations administration page in your webbrowser, and apply 'enable-optware.pat' as a firmware upgrade. Important note: this will fail with an exit code 42. This is done to fool the DiskStation, so it won't reboot after the patch.
- Apply 'disable-optware.pat' as a firmware upgrade.
About & Credits
This 'firmware' does not contain a binary, like you usually find when upgrading firmware of some piece of hardware. Instead, this is just a simple shell script, which makes the 'firmware' very low-risk to apply. As you might have noticed, the patch is a tarball file.
