The reason I asked you about private shares is cuz I saw you have NS2 and installed ipkg (which has steps to mount /opt on private share /shares/opt)I dont understand you... ¿Why is necessary create a new user...
From what I went through, one has to make sure that dash creates private share area on NS2 (i.e. /shares/opt) and then check for disk usage by root folder and lacie folder (I think...du -sk) and df -h to see the successful mounts (and check the mount logs)...it seems that you didnt auto mount so your ipkg must be in /shares area (just a guess) and will have to manually mount to proceed..check all areas (/shares/opt, /media/internal_8/shares/opt and /opt)- I have installed ipkg, but when reboot NAS, bye bye.... all dissapear ¿why?
I haven;t set up my NS2 to time capsule auto backup process..maybe you can go through Lacie manual...for sharing area between computers, NS2 has public share area (OpenShare)
So back to my question, does your NS2 web dashboard has a way to add private share under Users/Shares page?
I had another issue-- is there any other source to install mencoder as here it gives an error (Flle not found frameno.avi when I try to test MEncoder 1.0pre7-3.4.2) and in squeeze env., I cannot install mediainfo (does that mean I will have to build/compile it on debian-squeeze too using lenny steps?)
Glad I can use winscp+putty as you confirmed without ubuntu...Phew! can work on building environment without leaving windows.
Also can you share .desc files you used to transcode in Twonky? Did you try mencoder engine in twonky? Did you try pmsencoder engine on PS3 media server? I guess I will share my transcoding experience once I can sort the mencoder (under ipkg) and mediainfo (under apt-get)
Have a good weekend.
