GoFlex Net Support

maybe this is a stupid question, but I ask this because I think I'm not the only one, having trouble with a Seagate GoFlex Net.

1. Does Jeff's method fully support GoFlex?
2. What is the exact way to setup a GoFlex Device?
3. Should one register GoFlex at Seagate or not?
4. Does Debian support the eSata slots from the device
5. Are there known issues with GoFlex Net?

Thanks a lot for your answers. Because DockStar is a discontinued model it's important for us all to know that!

Is it really possible that no one is able to answer this question?

uBoot supports the GoFlex, but the current Debian kernel does not include support for the GoFlex arcNumber. You can still run it as a sheevaplug or a dockstar, but the SATA won't work.

If you want to use the SATA ports, you'll need to grab Peter's kernel patches and build your own kernel.

Hi Jeff,
thanks a lot for your answer and for all your work, great stuff!!!

Do you plan to support GoFlex Net native?

The good old DockStars are getting rare and expensive these days and they well disappear from the market soon! So new interested users must choose the GoFlex Net devices. From my opinion it's important for your project to support this device.

What do you think and what are your plans?

Thanks for your answer,
Greetings, Thomas

No more DockStars available in Germany! Only one shop offers them, but can't deliver. GoFlex Net are available in various shops from 70 € on. I think it's time for GoFlex Net, otherwise this great project (thank you Jeff) will be dead!

Merry X-Mas,

full ack :)

concerning goflex net: im still confused,
does jeffs actual uboot support boot from sata?
is there a "all inclusive" debian available already? (pitty, i'm no kernel hacker;) )

maybe iomega iconnect is an alternative (with wlan) too. its around 67E in germany.
