Re: Broken NSLU2
- If bass didn't follow the wiki instructions for changing fsck
defaults, it could just be the NSLU2 is stuck waiting for a "y"
response to an fsck prompt while booting. The easiest way to fix
this problem is just to plug the drive into another Linux machine and
run fsck on that machine. If you only have Windows boxes, then I
recommend downloading a Live CD/DVD with Linux on it. Knoppix and
Fedora come to mind as Live CD's you can use for this recovery.

- Hm, I tried both of those things. I have tried using different wall
outlets in case it was the outlet. I have unplugged both the USB hard
drive and ethernet cable from it, and I have held down the reset
button. However, None of the leds will turn on. I am beginning to
think it may be a faulty power adapter. Any thoughts?
- Thanks for the suggestion Bill. But I don't think that is the problem
because the device refuses to turn on even without the hardrive
