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.
