Are you installing on internal drive ? I thought it had only 16MB free ...

Yeah I noticed you said that in an earlier post.
But I'm not installing on an internal drive.
My O!Play has had 203.6 MB from the start (no external drive connected).
Maybe we have a different version? I bought mine in the Netherlands.
By the way if you find your internal memory is too small try this:
Will the progress we made up till now enable us to run XBMC on the O!Play at some point?

Unfornately I haven't purchased it yet .. I have two many linux device at the moment .. I have wdtv ( original ) and hacked to support almost all of the stuff that I mentioned including network support via external usb adapter ..
Getting XBMC on it ... This is a question for the linux experts which isn't me ...
Were you able to find anything about the GUI ? Are they using configuration files ( XML ) ? In WDTV, the fact that they were using xml made it easier to hack the GUI to support apple trailer / youtube within the GUI ...

That post does give detailed instruction for running Apache. It then says do the same for ftp and has a link to a binary package. I would like to try to only use the r/w portion of the O!Play (the one you mentioned) and have the files live on the esata drive on which I have 2 Linux partitions (and an ntfs one).
To get ftp going is there a slimmed down description that you could provide? The only reason I am asking is that at this time there is no disaster recovery for the O!Play which is odd. At least one person seems to have bricked their unit by following the Peter apparoach (in avfroums.com in the uk) which remount the r/o part as r/w and modified some files.
The easiest way would be to have optware installed without ever touching the r/o part of the memory.

You can try installing optware package vsftpd ..
