What kernel do you come from?
Make sure you are using the correct lsmonitor due to some changes with the GPIOs: http://neboola.de/fjen/lschlv2/lsmonitor/

I had the same problem when coming from stock kernel. When I updated lsmonitor bootloop was over!

yes, the old lsmonitor isn't compatible to a 3.6 kernel and restarts the linkstation.

The steps worked perfectly for me.

However, the problem that I have is the "warm reboot" --- it fails to load

Advice pull plug and the restart unit from cold.


It seem to take long to load with the new kernel 3.6.8



Thanks fjren for the updated kernel and advice (you wake these units rock!!!)

my system is up and running.. :up:
thx for that.. but now my problem is that it seems that I cannot mount xfs filesystems..

mount: unknown filesystem type 'xfs'

thats not good because I have all my data on that partition.
any ideas on that?
I just want to backup my data and after that I will try wheezy..

Kernel 3.6.9 is available now.
nothing interesting in the changelog, just some unimportant ext4 stuff for us.
you can read the announcement here.

I am only compiling new kernel versions with my old config for now. Next thing with changes will possibly be 3.7.

updating the kernel on the linkstation:
Code:
# user: root
wget <archive-link>
tar xf 3.6.8-fjen-1.tar.bz
cd 3.6.8-fjen-1
cp -r lib /lib
[mount /boot]
cp uImage.[device] /boot/uImage.3.6.8-fjen-1
cd /boot
ln -fs uImage.3.6.8-fjen-1 uImage.buffalo
reboot


I think in the line
Quote:
cp -r lib /lib


is a little mistake..
i think it should be:

Quote:
cp -r lib /


otherwise you will create a folder /lib/lib

Hi,

I just found this thread and want to try your kernel (want IPv6). I got a LS-XHL here (on Shonk's 1.64-mod1 for now).
I downloaded and extracted the 3.6 kernel. However, I can not seem to locate the lsmonitor script anywhere (It's not in /etc/init.d)

Do you know of any alias or some reason it should be missing? It's functionality must somewhere, I guess.
Or, maybe, I am completely off here, and should be installing a custom rootfs for this to work?

This kernel will not work with any form of the standard firmware. You need a custom rootfs like the Debian one.

I remember reading from earlier threads that the fan control didn't work under debian. Does it work now?

I have 2TB unit, can I change the disk to 160GB and test it out? Does it work?
