Can we run QNAP code too?


Recommended Posts

Soo I was digging around and found a German post on this board with this link. It was pretty neat and I thought it would be great to get the QNAP OS working. It looks more polished than the synology code and they seem to lay out a bit more information about the hardware that is used which could be useful for our home usage. I'd love to get this working bare metal on my Gen 8 microserver since it would allow for video output. I really want to have a NAS with the option to use it as an HTPC. To some it's asinine but to me it makes sense. I might just go buy a QNAP or Synology but why not play with the OS first? It would be epic to get this type of OS set up in such a way that we could easily add linux drivers for our own consumer grade hardware.

Unfortunately, no interest is to adapt the qnap os.

Too bad, because until synology release us from acting hdmi output that their system is behind the qnap and asustor.

I managed to run only x86 version of TS-509 in a virtual machine but without a working NIC.

Newer versions ( x86_64 ) incorrectly recognize the drive name, and for this reason the system is not booting properly.

Version intel qts expects to sdx system partition in a virtual machine, they are presented as sda or sdb sdf and startup scripts qts-a stupid and do not work. The need to analyze and convert init.d scripts in initrd.boot file. I'm for that too thin :smile:
