7216NSLU beginner - programmer with big problems :-(
- Mar 11, 2008Hello !
I hope that someone PLEASE could help me, because I have spend more
than 40 hours on trying upgrading my NSLU. Now I have lost contact
with the NSLU and cant use it.
I have read a lot of webpages and used google, but not found a
I have tryed to update the NSLU in two wayes but can't get further
on. In the following text I will explain what the status is, and the
status is called STATUS A and STATUS B. In both cases I try to upload
the firmware "Unslug 6.10Beta firmware" forund here:
I have downloaded the upgrade-program UgUtil described on the page
http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Main/SercommFirmwareUpdater where I
found the link http://www.everbesthk.com/8-
First I bring the NSLU into the UpgradeMode readu for firmware
When I run the program Ugutil it find the NSLU and ask for the file
to upload. I select the first Unslug file mentioned on the page
http://www.slug-firmware.net/ with the text "Download Unslung
binaries". The program get through the "Erase EProm" an get further
to the "upload frimware", but it stay at 0% upload and the UgUtil
program send me an error message.
I followed the UpSlug2 guide on the page http://www.nslu2-
linux.org/wiki/Main/UpSlug2. My computer normaly run Win XP and
because of that, I made a CD with Knoppix from the page
http://www.knoppix.net/. Knoppix is a Linux version that run from a
CD-drive even though the computer have WinXP installed. My computer
runs fine with Knoppix, and I tried to execute the following commands
(mentioned in http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Main/UpSlug2):
but get errors at the command autoreconf.
Please be aware of, that my NSLU all the time run in "upgarde mode".
By all the time I mean, that eaven when I turn off the power and turn
it on again, the NSLU returs to "upgrade mode" where the Ready/System
indicator continously changes between Green and Red.
Normaly I know how to get things up running, but this time I begin to
get gray haired. Please help me befor I get too old.
