HowTo for the Seagate FreeAgent DockStar NAS (Network Attached Storage)
Warning: before you connect the DockStar to the internet look at DockStarOverview.
The Seagate FreeAgent DockStar is a little box with a powerful ARM CPU (1.2 GHz), 128 MB RAM and Linux on board.
I will describe how to open the on board Linux software for universal use.
This box was (2010-09-09) on sale in Germany for about $33.
I have now installed on a 1 GB USB-stick Debian squeeze with a DockStar kernel (LED in use) and application programs for using a 1-wire interface (e.g. temperature measurement) and a webcam (Logitech E3500).
