Hi, I had some free time a couple of weeks ago so I upgraded my old Linkstation to OpenLink and started messing about with Asterisk. Spurred on by my early success (or perhaps that should be "not knowing when to quit"!!) today I flashed FreeLink followed by the 2.6 kernel.

Initially everything was going well and I applied the updates ok. I then tried to install some packages but this failed because I had filled up hda1.

I tried using the wiki instructions for Freelink to move /usr but upon rebooting, the power light keeps on flashing then the unit powers down with the diag light flashing 6 times.

Does this mean that the thing is in EM mode? I have tried accessing it on but it does not respond. Nor does the firmware updater see it. I've opened it up and tried powering it on with the disk removed and it does not respond to this either.

My initial thought was that putting the disk into another computer and wiping it might clear the problem but, if the Linkstation is dead even when the disk is unplugged, is it likely that something else has gone wrong?

Any suggestions gratefully received, Cammy.
