Unofficial debian-etch-rc2-20070308 : installer hangs after login via ssh
- I recently bought a nslu2 and flashed it with the
debian-etch-rc2-20070308 installer from
I didn't send this to the debian list since this firmware contains the
non-free ethernet microcode.
as a guide, I booted the nslu2 and connected to the device via ssh
through the on-board ethernet:
If I type the correct password, the terminal screen clears (no color
change) and the cursor moves to the bottom left of the screen and just
sits there. I have let it sit for hours with no change. I eventually
had to close the terminal (I am logging in from a Debian sarge
machine) as it wouldn't respond to ctrl-c, etc. Once I close the
terminal, I can open a new one and login via ssh with the same results
(in other words, the nslu2 is still responsive to connections).
I have re-flashed the nslu2 with the same results. Has anyone
experienced this before? Does anyone have any suggestions as to what
else I should try? I didn't see anything like this in the FAQ section
of nslu2-linux.org, but I will gladly add the solution if I find one.

debian-arm would have been the proper place for this discussion.

Unfortunately, I have never encountered this problem, but I suggest
that you try reflashing the Linksys firmware, booting the system, and
then trying again with the Debian Installer image. People have
reported that this procedure has worked for them in other situations.
BTW, had you ever booted the system with the Linksys firmware? Also,
it shouldn't make a difference, but how did you upload the Debian
