I will not mind working with you to see how I can install your server on top of Alt-F. Are you able to please take a look at Alt-F and let me know which of the packages you offer that can be used for this purpose, or perhaps consult with its creator on how this could be done. I just don't have the knowledge, but between you two a great package is waiting to be had. I will do the write-up, based on my experiences and create a wiki. Please see how best you can help.


The situation would be similar to any headless Linux machine such as a SheevaPlug. You can find all the information you need for installing MinimServer on Linux on this page.


OK, thanks for that. We have now reached a dead end on this, as the developer of Alt-F says the Dlink DNS 323 is too limited on CPU and memory, to run java. This is too unfortunate.

Here the output of cat /proc/cpuinfo on the D-Link DNS-323:

Processor : ARM926EJ-Sid(wb) rev 0 (v5l)
BogoMIPS : 331.77
Features : swp half thumb fastmult edsp java
CPU implementer : 0x41
CPU architecture: 5TEJ
CPU variant : 0x0
CPU part : 0x926
CPU revision : 0
Cache type : write-back
Cache clean : cp15 c7 ops
Cache lockdown : format C
Cache format : Harvard
I size : 32768
I assoc : 1
I line length : 32
I sets : 1024
D size : 32768
D assoc : 1
D line length : 32
D sets : 1024

Hardware : MV-88fxx81
Revision : 0000
Serial : 0000000000000000

More info here: Specs of the D-Link DNS-323

There are currently two revisions of the D-Link DNS-323, revision A1 and B1. Revision A1 uses a Marvell 88F5181 CPU along with a separate SATA chip. Revision B1, on the other hand, uses a Marvell 88F5182 CPU which integrates SATA into the SoC itself. The DNS-323 revision B1 is also sold by Conceptronic as the CH3SNAS.
Component
CPU Marvell Orion 88F5181 (revision A1) or 88F5182 (revision B1), 500 MHz
RAM 64 MB
Flash ROM 8 MB NOR
Hard drive 2x 3.5" SATA, Marvell 88X7042 (revision A1) or integrated in SoC (revision B1)
Ethernet 1x 10/100/1000 Mbit, integrated in SoC
USB 1x USB 2.0, integrated in SoC
RTC ST M41T80
Fan One, controlled by GMT G760Af
Temperature sensor GMT G751-2f
Boot loader U-Boot

I'm just trying to see if this can happen, since according to the linked page, Debian can be installed on this box.

The 64MB of RAM rules out the possibility of running Java and MinimServer. MinimServer can run on a 500 MHz ARM CPU, but not with as little as 64MB of RAM. Installing Debian wouldn't help.

This support is now available in MinimServer update 42. It should work when MinimServer is running on a platform with a native graphical interface (Mac, Windows, some Linux). You can't do this with MinimWatch, only with MinimServer.
