I know that you can install system and user modules on Thecus NAS units to expand their capabilities. I have already installed SYSUSER and SSHD so that I can now SSH into the box. I haven't had much luck finding information online that explain how to create new modules.
Basically, I just want to install a git server on it. As far as I can tell, no git module exists yet. I doubt I can build from source, since there isn't a compiler installed!
It seems like one option is to create a VM with the Thecus-specific Linux kernel, then compile git there, then copy the binaries over... but I am definitely the linux noob and will probably screw this up. Only one way to find out, I guess! (http://thecususergroup.proboards.com/index.cgi?action=display&board=n5200modifications&thread=1656&page=1#8794)
