Is it possible to fool Linux what CPU, the amount of memory etc it runs on? I have a NAS running an obscure custom Linux distribution (Seagate's internal) that requires a certain hardware to enable a function I want to use but my device doesn't fit those requirements.
I don't think there is a technical reason for this limitation, rather it has to do with marketing and market segmentation, and was thinking that maybe I could manipulate what
/proc/cpuinfo and similar are returning to make the admin interface allow me to enable this function (volume encryption) that way.
Is this possible? I have root access.
