I have a Linux -Based NAS that I want to install QGIS onto. Since I am administering through a web interface from a Windows based PC, how can I install qgis? Is there a way maybe through IPKG? Or any other solutions? I am almost ignorant of native Linux use.

Thanks in advance

Are you going to use the NAS to host a QGIS server? Or are you trying to install the desktop binaries to the NAS? – HeyOverThere Oct 23 '12 at 14:51

I would like to use the NAS as a QGIS server. I imagine it is accessible from a web interface? My remote operating system is Windows Vista / XP – user12179 Oct 24 '12 at 11:58
