a P2P server.

Hi Sergio,

Thanks for this write-up (aun no se me fue por completo el español de
mis años en Mexico). Quite a good repurposing idea for this nice
hardware.
I was not aware that eDonkey was still active, so I should definately
check it out.

For myself, I use a headless rasperry pi 3 (w/ SSD external disk) with
the qbitorrent-nox package that provides a web interface, and it's
been wonderful so far.
I saw somewhere that the power consumption of the mac mini is about 40
watts, vs. some 5 watts for a raspberry. So I guess I'll stay the
raspi way !

Just a small note : when you say "Lo importante es que NO instalen un
gestor de X" do you mean to avoid installing the X sets ? because I
found it easier not to bother with that even on a headless system,
especially because you still need xbase for many packages to run (and
sysupgrade will get you all the sets back I've heard).

Saludos de un "Franco-Mexicano"
Cheers,

JB
