32 bit

#1

Post by miostreams » 04 Apr 2018 02:08

Is 32 bit software still available? Have you completely removed it from your download site?
I have 32 bit system here that I would like to be able to test this software on. I may, in the future, purchase 64 bit hardware for this purpose, but I am interested in utilizing my existing hardware at this point. I understand that 64 bit hardware is on the market and available now, but my current use case is for 32 bit hardware. What is your most recent version of 32 bit software, and is it still available for download?

Thanks in advance

Hello,

Yes that's a pity!
If you don't want to stay with 10.3.0.3 - Pilingitam (revision 4299) as on my PII 400, you'll have to pay big buck$$$$$ for a new hardware consuming so much more energy...

This project seems to go the same way as it's overbloated alpha root FreeNAS.

Ciao @+

Quite the contrary, there has been some user requesting new content to include to base system lately, and has been rejected, also is not uncommon to see similar appliance project like this leaving 32-Bit Legacy, see "FreeNAS", "pfSense" "Select Linux Distros" Etc Etc. but why? for many many reasons, but to mention a few common ones:

1: Developers can't easily access/test 32-Bit hardware lately(they discontinued).
2: The time spent compiling a Legacy product for discontinued hardware does not worth the hassle.
3: Theres is no warranty the product will work on such legacy/possibly defective hardware, thus causing lots of support spam.
4: Did I mention they discontinued? ;)

As for other users wanting NAS4Free 32-Bit Legacy releases, I know how that's feel, but best option is to steep forward and upgrade hardware.

Regards

all the house hold 32 bit MOBO hardware is trashed or gifted, save the wife's favorite laptop [was Vista now Ubuntu]
it was ALL just too slow for any big file usage [back-up] yes it can be had cheap but to me it is worth less, when....
one can buy refurbished [no OS] i5 boxes cheap too.
On the other hand,
feel free to love those USB-1 ports and 10T LAN cards.
by using this free advise, you, your heirs, etc
absolve, save, and hold harmless the advisor.
CAVEAT EMPTOR
YMMV
