Drobo

Tonido porting

Hey guys,

do you think it’s possible to port tonido to run on the drobofs?
btw: www.tonido.com, if you don’t know what i’m talking about.

Thanks.

Doubt it. It’s does not look to be open source and without access to the source files there is no way to port it. Can you find source code for tonido?

They do have a so-called “TonidoPlug”, which for me really looks like an ARM device.

In other words, they probably already have a port of their software to the ARM platform (i.e., the same as Drobo), the only problem is that they do not seem to distribute it by itself.

You could try to send them an email and see if they would release the ARM client as a stand-alone app, and then we could have a look at it to see if we can match all the dependencies.

EDIT: I was browsing their forums and just noticed that they have a poll just for asking a port for the DroboShare/DroboFS. Go there and vote! :slight_smile:

Thanks for the info.

I’ll ask around. maybe we can make them fork out the ARM ver. :slight_smile:
