Ihave solved the problems. Reading the PITS will help.

I have now changed the debil.sh script according to the PITS. Is it possible to put the debil.sh in the debil package and upload it to the linkstationwiki. So other users wont get these problems?


I tried to figure out where he (or she) found those PITS about the 0 returned by debootstrap. A number should be great (or a link).

I have a LS2 and I'm stuck at the debil1.sh scripts (it doesnt want to run like it should).

I installed the mipseltools, but I have the same problem

./debootstrap: cd: /mnt/hda/debil-0.1/debinst/var/cache/apt/archives: No such file or directory
chroot: cannot execute mount: No such file or directory
W: Failure trying to run: chroot /mnt/hda/debil-0.1/debinst mount -t proc proc /proc
umount: /mnt/hda/debil-0.1/debinst/dev/pts: not found
umount: /mnt/hda/debil-0.1/debinst/dev/shm: not found

Ok I found my answer, the debil.sh doesnt want to work like it should, I had to make the installation manually.

This is how I did it

First I download the debil1.0.tgz, extracted it, and I put it in /mnt (so the path is /mnt/debil-0.1)

After I run those command

export DEBOOTSTRAP_DIR=/mnt/debil-0.1/mipsel/usr/lib/debootstrap
export TERM=linux
export PATH=$PATH:./:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/mnt/debil-0.1/mipsel:/mnt/debil-0.1/mipsel/usr/sbin:/ mnt/debil-0.1/mipsel/bins

(PS: MAKE SURE YOU USE /mnt/debil-0.1 otherwise you need to change those /mnt/debil-0.1 to your folder)

After the export was done
I ran the debil1.0.sh again, and it work


If the url doesnt want to response (the url in debil.sh) you can find more mirror at
http://www.debian.org/CD/mirroring/rsync-mirrors and I took a mirror (the closest to me) and it was debian.mirrors.tds.net, so I went to ftp://debian.mirrors.tds.net (just to make sure it work) and I check for the folder debian (and it was there, so everything is good, otherwise I need to select another mirror). So now I know I can use ftp://debian.mirrors.tds.net/debian.

> One last question: apt-get install 'what?'. Which pakets excatly do I need?

Well, you'll have to see. You need at least the 'gcc' package, this recommends some other dev stuff (like 'make'). I already had set up a development environment for things like 'netatalk' UAMs (you don't get DHX or anything with encryption with the official Debian package) or 'lighttpd' (before it was included in official Debian releases).

Sorry for not being more helpful on that topic, but usually the error messages you get for missing parts usually are quite helpful to indicate what you need.

This morning I started my LS2, the hdd worked longer than before and the boot process took some minutes till the diag led flashed 6 time. Telnet/SSH was not possible anymore.
Yesterday it worked fine, no idea what I could have changed to get this error.

I could swappart the partions with knoppix and was successfull booting up the old firmware.

Reading some posts I assume that could has something to do with fstab?
I have checked mc_ctld, seems to be fine in rc2.d.

Any idea how to fix this? I have no glue.... Sad

i had this problem because i started to much before ppc_uartd (i have a linkstation 1, i don`t know which is the counterpart on a LS2).....which of course.....i started kaid....which was a very bad idea, because it took to long to be fully loaded.....

after two minutes i also hat this flashing...six times everytime....

you can see if that is the problem if you can telnet into the linkstation after about a minute after starting.....1 minute later it should flash 6 times again.....

maybe you started something heavy like kaid, mldonkey or something like that before ......

Tried to check but cannot solve.

Any ideas?

Hmmm,
seems this relates to PITS 00031.
Interesting is that i was able to run debootstrap on the same box several times and than suddenly this failure happens...

Marge (and everyone else who has put helpful comments along the way), I just want to say "Genius". Today I managed to install debian on my LSII thanks to your script, and a couple of tweaks based on the comments in this forum. I now have a fully debian LSI and LSII :-D

For the record, in case anyone else has similar experiences, I did this (on the LSII):
- installed openlink
- telnet in and downloaded the debil script
- downloaded (mipsbinsfrom marge's site and unpacked it
- added the 'bins' directory to my path so that the installer would pick up the helper binaries ("export PATH=$PATH:./bins")
- ran the debil script
- waited a while, answered a few easy questions
- rebooted (for various deliberate and non-delibarate reasons)
- logged in to openlink with telnet again and did the e2sck on /dev/hda3
- ran swapart_mipsel to make my debian installation the boot partition
- rebooted. prayed. oh dear. Couldn't talk to my LSII after reboot, even though it appeared to be up (no ping, no telnet, no ssh)

to fix, I opened up the box, connected it to a PC running knoppix and did
- e2fsck /dev/hda3 (for luck) - NB the LSII drive had actually mounted as /dev/hda1 on my knoppix machine, but using /dev/hda3 for consistency
- checked /mnt/hda3/var/log/messages and saw the 'respawning bug' (PITS004). Fixed that by editing /mnt/hda3/etc/inittab
- changed my /mnt/hda3/etc/network/interfaces to give me a static IP address
- put the drive back in the LSII
- rebooted
- hurrah! I have a telnet into my debian LS2!
- installed SSH, rebooted, ssh back into my debian LS2.
- relax with a cool beer.

thanks again for everyone's work on this. great job.

Always wondered why this was never packaged all-in-onein a firmware updater
like the LS I & HG.
Lack of people who cared about debian on the LS II ?

no, i don`t think so.....as far as i remember the debil-installer was far more developed in the beginning....it was the first possibility to get debian on the Linkstation without opening the LS.

Freelink came later....i think the problem was that we had the kurobox-debian-tarball which was for ppc-architectures....but there was no for mips.....

a freelink for mips would be great...of course...
