Hi, I'm already running SBS on my DNS323 with FFP 0.5 but I'm experienceing troubles using at the same time Twonky Server; TS is configured on port 8000 and SBS on port 9000. Could it be a memory problem? SBS is not responding and then closes itself. I've read that LMS uses less memory. Thanks.

Can LMS run on D-Link DNS-323?

Yes it can, I run my LMS on a DNS-323. (see http://forum.dsmg600.info/viewtopic.php?id=6947)
I have 2 Receivers and 2 Booms connected to it.
Collection is over 16600 tracks, almost 1400 albums, all MP3.
The DNS-323 is a very limited device by today's standards.
It has 64Mb (yes, megabytes) of RAM and a 500MHz processor.
The limited amount a RAM causes constant swapping on the device.
This slows down the web interface and the keeps the HDs spinning at all time.
I solved this by inserting a USB stick in the available slot on the back and adding swap on it.
This slows the web interface and the remotes even more down.
If you want to run LMS on a DNS-323, it needs to be dedicated.
There's not enough RAM in the machine to run anything serious together with it.
There's also an issue to work around since the move to SQLite.
When querying the database, SQLite creates large files in /tmp.
But on the DNS, /tmp is very limited in space because it's actually part of the system's image that is loaded into RAM at startup.
I didn't find a way to specify a different /tmp directory for SQLite.
I simply remount /tmp to a different volume at the slimserver.sh startup script. (in my case, I map it to a 1 Gb partition on the USB stick)
