Hi all, I recived my KuroBox Pro and I want to install it, but i have few question:

How good is default kuro linux?
Should I skip default installation and put a Debian on it? I have experience in a Debian system.
I never used Gentoo, but Openlink is better than above choices?

What are pros and cons?


Thanks in advance and sory for my english.

1. The default linux is pretty basic, probably a version of MontaVista Linux it's not really capable of much

2. Debian (or FreeLink) is just as easy to install as the Default "Developer Linux" you just replace the tarball for one rootfs with another.

3. Genlink is at your own risk, it's unsupported, and would require lots of tweaking, I just gave up on it.

4. There is no Openlink. Eventually there will be a successor distribution (FooNas) it's still in beta though http://foonas.org

One note, I would get the parts together for serial access. Console access for the KuroPro is actually important. (it was not for the KuroHG)

Thanks ramuk, today I will buy a 400Gb HDD, and will install Debian on it.
Is it safe as described in wiki?
Or I realy need to have serial console access?

It's a one way conversion as described in the wiki. If somehow things get screwed up you will need either/both serial access to fix uboot settings and a linux box with SATA interface to refix the partitions etc on the hard drive.

That being said, I did my first debian conversion without serial access, and have not had to adjust uboot settings on that box. I just used SATA interface on another linux box to change partitions, and try out another rootfs
