Re: It`s horrible for a Linux newbie
- Hi Simon and Andreas,
I don't know exactly why it should be necessary to restore the
signature, I simply did it because I thought it was necessary.
But perhaps the problem is that Andreas didn't umount the partition ?
Or perhaps the file is not executable ? try a chmod 777
btw: as I'm no linux expert I would be interested in the reason why on
one hand "normal" kernels can't read the linkstation file system but
on the other hand linkstation's kernel is able to read it's own
filesystem without the fix applied ...
