Does one need to wipe the Unslung disk after 're-flashing' ?
- Short piece of history:
- had Linksys firmware 2.3R25
- unslung with 4.2beta
- installed mt-daapd (succes)
- installed ssh (succes)
- installed cups (succes, although printer wouldn't work)
- installed mc (succes)
- unslung with 5.5beta
- installed samba3 (no succes)
After installing samba v3 I wanted to 'disable' the standard v2
version. Did everything that's listed in http://www.nslu2-
linux.org/wiki/Unslung/Samba however after creating the links my
password file was 0 bytes all of a sudden as well as the conf file.
I tried to recreate passwords, users but to no avail. I couldn't get
to my shared file anymore through my local network. Strangly, mt-
daapd still worked sharing mp3 files.
I decided to start all over again:
- flashed Linksys firmware 2.3R29
- flashed unslung firmware 5.5beta
Now my question is, should I first wipe everything on my former
unslung drive (except for the mp3 collection) and then start the
unsling process, or should I just unsling and will all existing
files be overwritten?
