- Well guys I had been following the posts here untill my Kuro Box
Got it all built physically and hooked it up to the network and
storage worked... but it was in Japanese.
Found I could Telnet... but have never used telnet in my life so I was
wandering in in the dark.
Found instructions to change the interface for the web to english and
had to install cuteftp.
Ftp to the right place and now my unit is in English.
I bought the unit to be a server for a slimserver. Followed the
directions on this website and none of it works. I don't really
understand yet how telnet and linux (wich I also have never used)
works. But I noticed somethings that I can understand. like when I
check /usr/local in ftp it shows no files there. I can type commands
all day and all night... wich I found out yesterday and can't get
When I tried editing some of the lines I got some results like renaming
slimserver to slimserver.pl "tar -xvf /usr/local/slimserver.pl"
As I don't really understand what is going on I am using ftp to guide
me. I can see if there is a directory. If it is empty it stands to
reason that any command that I type that contains that directory is
not going to work.
As for the guide for idiots. If you guys can get it to work on my
unit... I will write the guide.
Too many hours wasted.
This morning I tried to boot the unit and could not log in via ftp or
http. Checked the shared and that didn't work either. Pulled the plug
and used the red button as it turned on. That got the http to work.
said I need to reformat the drive. SURE WHAT DO I CARE, nothings there
I would really like a step by step to take this unit back to factory.
I mean clean back to factory. I was copying and moving files for 6
hours and none of them ever ran right in the telnet session. I would
get errors like "bad interperter". Did I mention frustrating?
Now after getting the unit back to working order I get a 3 blink light
on the Diag. It blinks with no connection to the ethernet It blinks
when the thing is off. It blinkfs when it s on... it Blinks.
I guess what I am saying is... HELP!
- For all you having problems with dealing with the
"nitty gritty" details of customizing your Linkstation
or Kurobox, please be patient. Many of us are
actively working on making these "customizations"
better for the general public to use, but we are not
quite there yet. Things are moving along quickly
however. The Linkstation/Kurobox has a lot of
potential that we are all just beginning to unlock.
So if you are having trouble getting your product to
do special things for you today, please don't get
flustered, just check back with us in a couple of
weeks to see if things have improved enough for you
Of course people who have already written "How-to"
pages would still appreciate feedback to they can work
to make these tutorials better for all.
