406Unsling 2 "FIXES PROBLEMS !!!! "
- Nov 8, 2004I finally got the new unslung version, Beta 2. I've been waiting for
it, not so much for the unslinging capabilities, but for the patch
in it that fixes the USB chipset problems. Heck you don't even need
to unsling it for that. But for the 'many' of us who have harddrives
in enclosures (or direct USB to IDE converter cable, as in my case)
that refuse to work, giving "Not Formatted" messages, locking up, or
poor network performance. "IT WORKS>>"
I purposefully (is that a word?) didn't reformat my drives and
instead let them sit, waiting, non functioning, until I could get my
hands on this release when it was ready.
ALL you have to do is flash the NSLU2 with beta 2 and don't bother
with unslinging it(Unless your going to be developing for it or
using stuff developed by others).
The 2 "Non Formatted" hard drives on mine - came to life! All my
files are back, I can even stream videos simutaneously from it!
Where is Linksys? Do they even know that they are selling thousands
of NSLU2's to non-savvy consumers that for a HUGE percentage of them
won't even work. Filling the stores return desks with believed to be
broken units that have a simple bug in their driver that Linksys
should have not missed in the first place? Then they ignore the
cries from their customers and pass them on to India somewhere. WHY?
Many Thanks to the Unslingers
