      so i converted my ls to a kurobox. everything went
      fine. but while i was untaring some of the binary
      files (from the binary.zip from revogear), i ran out
      of space. so i moved all the files from /usr to
      /mnt/usr and then created a symbolic link /usr ->
      /mnt/usr. this cleared up a bunch of space. i then
      preceded to clean out some more space, except i
      screwed up and deleted /etc, /sbin, and /usr. Now i
      can't telnet, ftp, or ssh into my kuro-ified ls.

      When i push in the little red button on the back, my
      kuro-ls reboots, the link light flashes a few times
      and then goes solid green. then my power light
      flashes green for about 60 seconds and then both the
      link and power lights go out. my diag light then goes
      on, red, and continously flashes 6 times.

      I went to
      http://www.kurobox.com/online/tiki-index.php?page=LedDescriptions
      and found out that 6 red diag flashes means that
      ppc_uartd isn't running or I'm missing some key files.
      This makes sense being that i deleted /etc, /usr/ and
      /sbin.

      so... how can i get my kuro-ls back up? I don't care
      about the data on the drive (i rather keep it if
      possible, but i can do without), so i don't mind going
      back to an initial state.

      your help is greatly appreciated.

      btw: i have a powerbook with virtual pc to work with.

        try to replace the hard disk with a completely empty drive (no
        partitions). The kuro box should go straigt to EM.

        Then shut down the box and replace the drives again. You should then be
        able to fix the mess you made under EM.

            When I had a similar symptom, I fixed it by removing my hard drive, putting it in my desktop, booting Knoppix or Trinity Rescue Kit from a CD, wiping the disk, reinserting it into the LS, then reinstalling the firmware.

             

            It's kind of a pain, but by the time you do it for the third or fourth time, you kind of get the hang of it! �;-)

             

            Best of luck,
