As more and more people flash freelink without knowing exactly what it is, perhaps you should consider adding a message before downloading that it is linux without graphical interface and must be configuered by commandline and requires at least basic knowledge of linux!

Don't know where to go next. I have attempted the installation of FreeLink per the instructions on this forum and on the wiki but keep runing into the installation aborting. Is there a better page to go to to get FreeLink installed? I have an LS-PRO (LS-GL6AF). If anyone cab help, I would greatly appreciate it. I'll go into details of what happens if the information is needed.

Thanks in advance

I also seem to have this problem with the flash aborting. For me what seems to be happening is, when using the flash utility everything seems to go smoothly until it tries to write the firmware. During this process the write status seems to start going then it abruptly stops and the linkstation reboots. The Linkstation then comes back up and reports that the update is complete. When I try to go in, nothing has changed. (IP same, admin password same, web console still works).

Any ideas.

Have you installed the new initrd I produced first? you need to run the updater in debug mode and update initrd first, follow the article in the wiki.

Hi All,

I'd like to install FreeLink on LS Live. I have already enabled telnet via ACP_Commander.
Went through wiki manual and started with Initrd first. And here is my question:

LSUpdater.exe from Freelink package does not recognise my LS Live. Should I then take stock one (Live version), copy it to FreeLink package and continue ?

I'm fairly new too. I found that taking out the drive and connecting it directly to another computer works best. I got Knoppix and the freelink download. I booted Knoppix with the LS hard drive attached. I repartitioned sda1-sda6 (or rather sdb1-sdb6 while mounted on Knopix). Then I just copied over the files to sda1 and sda2 (from the freelink download). Then it was all good. I was having issues with the intaller. I'm no expert though so because it worked for me it is no guarantee.

Download the stock lsupdater.ini file from Buffalo's firmware folder, and then modify the file just a bit.

open in a text editor, and Change:
Code:
[Flags]
VersionCheck = 1

to
Code:
[Flags]
VersionCheck = 0

[SpecialFlags]
Debug = 1


and that will get the lsupdater to find the device.

I don't know the device code for the Live, otherwise you could have changed the ini file you have to the proper id of the Live.

Many thanks marvin and goat !

I tried to modify lsupdater.ini file and put device code from Live updater, but it didn't help. Device was not recognised. I haven't tried changing 'VersionCheck = 0'.

I just took LSUpdater.exe from Live firmware (Buffalo site) and copied it to FreeLink and Initrd_only directories in FreeLink package. I started with Initrd update first. Although I got a message like 'image file can't be extracted' during the update, I found all required files in /boot. Then I updated FreeLink - everything went smoothly, exactly as it is on wiki. Now I'm enjoying FreeLink.

So it seems that the easiest way to install FreeLink on LS Live is to use Live version of LSUpdater.exe

Good to hear you got it working. Can you update the wiki to indicate what to do for the live?

Just updated my LS-PRO :up: I had the same problem as yours on my first attempt. You'll need to first update initrd-only found in FreeLink_arm9-1.0rev2.zip. Once it's done, remove or the initrd-only directory somewhere else and run LSUpdater to install freelink. It should work :P

I am pretty sure the LSPro ARM9 Freelink wiki page says you have to do an initrd-only install first prior to a complete Freelink install.

Yes it does mention the modified initrd image update as the first step.

There are many - in my opinion too many - files and directories owning to nobody:nogroup. /etc/ is writable for anybody.
