ALIX sizing lesson and WPA configuration note

Filed under: UNIX & Linux — Tags: , , , — martin @ 1:17 pm

Okay, there we have it. The ALIX, despite its generally good performance, can’t handle the workload of BackupPC and starts to swap really badly when backing up a fairly large system via rsync.

At least I’ve learned from this test how to configure the Wistron CM9 card for WPA on Debian:

iface ath0 inet static
        madwifi-base wifi0
        madwifi-mode sta
        wpa-driver wext
        wpa-ssid blah
        wpa-psk blubb
        address 192.168.1.100
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        network 192.168.1.0
        broadcast 192.168.1.255
        gateway 192.168.1.1
