re: my NSLU2 is half-dead
I've noticed with my NSLU2 that if it gets overtaxed, or perhaps runs
out of memory, it can get into an unresponsive state. Simply
rebooting won't solve the problem, because access to the hard drive
is impeded. Best solution is to plug the unit into another linux pc
e2fsck /dev/sda1 and ...sda2 in order to recover the journal and
check the inodes.
then plug the drive back into the NSLU2 and reboot. And keep an eye
on how many processes you run at one time...
