TonidoPlug runs Linux; hence technically you can install other software (limited by memory size and process speed). However, we don't offer any kind of technical support if you attempt to do this. When you install other software we recommend you to boot the TonidoPlug from either external USB drive or SATA disk. If you install software on flash and brick the device CodeLathe is not responsible for it.
TonidoPlug 1 uses Ubuntu 9.04. Ubuntu has stopped ARM support and has removed their software repository for Ubuntu ARM. This affects TonidoPlug 1 and users of TonidoPlug 1 can no longer update software with the built-in repository. Follow these instructions to switch to a new working repository and update packages when required.
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ jaunty main restricted universe multiverse
root@TonidoPlug:~# mkdir -p /var/cache/apt/archives/partial
root@TonidoPlug:~# apt-get update
Now you can install any package using the "apt-get install" command.
