So I followed a hint from the Wiki which infers changing a large
capacitor in the power supply and the voltage now seems stable at
exactly 5 volts, with or without load (will monitor this, seems to be
still stable after 2 hours running).
And my NSLU2 seems to boot up correctly.
But it is now broken in another way. I cannot see it over the network.
The ether port seems to be live. Also I have re-booted my router just
in case the problem is else where. The web interface, shares and pings
etc all time out.
I have also tried detecting the NSLU2 using the original set up CD that
came with the unit but cannot detect it on the network.
Running the unit low voltage yesterday has obviously broken something,
I noticed that the unit seemed to keep re-booting about every 10 second
Hopefully a data corruption some where rather than hardware fault.
Later today I will check through the mailing list postings, I seem to
remember some posts on this subject.
