I figured that the new kernel package was just a matter of unpacking the .tar image at root.
Thanks for the rest of the instructions.
Using uname -r verifies the new kernel 4.9.44
I have a good gigabit network and with my EX2 ultra I can get 118MB/s read and write (disk spanning not RAID) with a standard MTU, so with all of my other devices it does not make sense changing my network to support jumbo frames.
With kernel 4.9.44 and MTU 1500 on the MBL, the large sequential write test was 96.7MB/s
SAMBA read 76 MB/s
SAMBA write 41 MB/s
which is a good performance jump from stock firmware
and I would hope that there are more security patches with the new kernel than with the stock firmware
it just took me a bit to get the SAMBA shares, users configured (I’m still somewhat new to linux)
Thanks for all your work - great update for some aging hardware.
One last question, should one be able to perform
without any problems?
edit: the network shares are not showing up in Windows; what needs to be done to have the MBL broadcast the shares?
