I have downloaded latest source code and tools available for the WD MyCloud (Gen 2, e.g. v2 firmware). The tools are very old (October 2013, or 3 1/2 years old) and the version of g++ provided is 4.6.4. I am trying to compile nodejs, but I need a newer version than 0.10x (which is practically end of life at this point). However, this requires a minimum g++ version of 4.8.
If I had some very detailed instructions on what I needed to do, I might be able to compile a newer g++, but given the ease with which things could go wrong when trying to compile a compiler and get all the libraries right, a pre-compiled version would be greatly appreciated.
Has anybody done this before? WD, if you are listening, any chance you can update the tools to the latest version? Thanks!
