A flashing blue light is not sufficient to determine if
it worked or not, because Debian needs some tools
to be installed (blstools) to manage the LED.
Can you connect to the box via telnet or ssh when
the flashing LED stood for a while?

Guys,

I just followed the write-up on the Wiki http://buffalo.nas-central.org/wiki/Deb ... %27_Series

Worked great on my XHL. I made a few small updates, there were a few typos and things were slightly out of date, but otherwise pretty bang on.
Thanks benoqkuke and thanks for writing it up kenatonline

Cheers.

;)
Stonie

So, I can get my box onto Squeeze, but after a few reboots/a couple hours of running, it drops to EM mode and I can't do anything but re-do the entire process. Any ideas on what I should be looking at?

Mine also did that... I was not 100% sure of the cause... Did you install xfsprogs?

Yep. Installed xfsprogs. I think it might be that the fstab is incorrect and after running for awhile something is getting corrupt? I've done this with my drives in RAID and not.

if you enabled bootlog you should be able to debug it.
Code:
/etc/default/bootlogd

I have installed and now it's running successful...
But this firmware doesn't reconize the USB port?

There're no usb in /proc/bus.

Does anyone have the same problem? How can I fix this?

Thanks and sorry for my English.

usb support is built as a module

Try to run
Code:
# modprobe usbcore


This shall do the trick.

Hey Dudes,

does this work with firmware 1.53 and is it a good idea to use buffalo firmware 1.53 to "build" a "squeezy" Linkstation WXL?

I tried to follow this tutorial on my LS-WXL. However, I removed the drive and placed the files on it using a PC.

I thought it was more or less working, but when I replace the drive in my Linkstation with my Debian hddrootfs.buffalo.updated and initrd.buffalo.updated in place, it fails to boot. The red error lights flash E06 - "The firmware is corrupted".

Any idea how I can find out what is wrong?
