The ReadyNAS is just like a regular computer system. The APT addon on ReadyNAS’s community allows end users to install or remove packages easily using the apt-get command.
Basically, you can get your compiling environment up and running by installing the following addons – APT, ToggleSSH, EnableRootSSH. Following that, ssh to your ReadyNAS and install the following packages for compiling.
# apt-get update
# apt-get install libc6-dev gcc gdb libtag1-dev uuid-dev
Select Yes for those additional packages the system suggests.
Hurray! Time to compile transmission on the ReadyNAS.
