New mirror for nas-central.org

As nas-central.org is down for several weeks now, @shv has offered some webspace and bandwidth to create a mirror of the 3th party repository. You can find it at

If you want to put this mirror in an existing MetaRepository installation, use
http://zyxel.diskstation.eu/Users/Mijzelf/zypkg-repo/fw4/ for NSA devices, and
http://zyxel.diskstation.eu/Users/Mijzelf/zypkg-repo/fw5/ for NAS devices.
Upgrade MetaRepository, as it knows some new tricks to handle mirror repos.

    Hello Mijzelf, all of your links are not available … Is that only temporarilly?

    Regards LSt.

    Don't know. It's working for me, at this moment (10:37 UTC). If it doesn't work for you, try another DNS.

    Thanks Mijzelf.  Now I'm able to get my installed apps back. Unfortunately the whole old forum was removed, so a lot of knowledge is gone.

    Hi Mijzelf,

    I've been trying to install Plex server since quite a while now on my NSA325 v2 and I realized that the reason why I was struggling is because nas-central.org is down. Do we have any idea if it will be up again at some point? Any information at all?

    I've been able to install FFP and access my NSA through Telnet but now I'm supposed to install PMS FFP 0.7-arm package from your repo ("slacker -UaA mz:plexmediaserver") except that I obviously get a NoChecksums error since the server is unavailable.

    Any idea or workaround that I could use to make this thing work?

    Thanks so much!

    Edit the slacker file, as documented here, remove the nas-central repo, and add the mirror:

    AFAIK Plex will give a bad UX, as Armv5 is not supported for several years now. So the Plex server you can install is old.

    Thanks for your help! I managed to get the Meta Repo with this new link.
    After that, I've been able to install Plex Media Server from your repo.
    The download link is dead (as you told me, ARMv5 is not supported anymore, that should be why) but I managed to find PlexMediaServer- on Reddit.
    I uploaded this file and installed it. 
    Now I'm getting this error when I try to start it:

    sh: error setting limit: Operation not permitted
    Starting Plex Media Server...failed?
    /usr/local/zy-pkgs/share/PlexMediaServer/home/Plex Media Server: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.9' not found (required by /usr/local/zy-pkgs/share/PlexMediaServer/home/Plex Media Server)

    I've read about that on zyxelforum.de, which is down now. When I remember well only the Netgear version of the latest Plex works on an NSA.

    That's really helpful information, thank you! I'm just struggling really bad to find the ReadyNas version.
    Do you have any idea where I could find this file by any chance?

    Oh my god, thank you so much! You're a life saver! This file is finally the one I needed!
    It works just fine, now I just need to figure out why Plex is asking me to update my server to 1.3.0 version (which I can't do for obvious reasons). Any ideas?
  • MijzelfMijzelf Posts: 1,207  Heroic Warrior Member
    Because there is a version 1.3.0 available? Not for your hardware, but I think the update detector doesn't care.
  • indieBenindieBen Posts: 7  Junior Member
    Ok, that was a stupid question haha. I need to figure out how I can bypass this "update needed" thing so I can access my library with my devices.

    Any ideas?
  • Hi, somehow cannot get up and running plex server. Did all the above. Plex seemed to be installed by cannot launch. 
    Starting Plex Media Server...failed?
    /i-data/c01b0b12/.PKG/PlexMediaServer/share/PlexMediaServer/home/Plex Media Server: error while loading shared libraries: /i-data/c01b0b12/.PKG/PlexMediaServer/share/PlexMediaServer/home/libboost_system.so.1.59.0: internal error

    What could be the issue?

    Replace my NSA320 with a NAS326 after lightning bricked the NSA320. Luckily I found this thread for the new location of the MetaRepository. Installed it successfully and added Entware first.

    Only thing not working is the Pacages list on

    It throws an "

    404 Not Found


    opkg update
    to fix that, but after examining the page it seems the list comes from an iframe with source http://pkg.entware.net/binaries//Packages.html
    Accessing this page directly, also gives me a 404.
    Is this a known problem?

    Regards, and glad to find my way back to the MetaRepository.
    NAS326 + MetaRepository  + Entware
