Ubuntu Gutsy Ximeta NDAS Howto

Filed under
HowTos

A month ago I bought a TREKSTOR NDAS device. This devices promises on it's package to be linux compatible. So after I unpacked the hardware and everything was running in Windows I tried to install it in linux. Unfortunately the stock feisty debian package I found didn't work with my WLAN configuration.

Now after I reinstalled ubuntu and upgraded to gutsy which comes right now with a 2.6.22er kernel I tried to build the driver from source. I had to patch the sources to make it work, but since it works flawlessly right now I provide my patch and a little compilation howto.

Download the current NDAS sources and my NDAS patch for linux kernel 2.6.22.

While I've been writing about Intel's Beignet project since early 2013, it's probably been about a year now since I tried out the code, which is developed by Intel's OTC graphics team in China. This weekend I tried out Beignet v0.9.2 as trying out the newest Intel OpenCL code has been on my TODO list for a while and it's been working out rather well in my initial tests. Read more
