hello..

I am trying to install debian wheezy on my linkstation..
i follow this instruction:

http://buffalo.nas-central.org/wiki/Deb ... n_LS-CHLv1

I am stuck at this point:

Quote:
Once the installer is loaded into the LS, you have to use an SSH client to connect to it (you can guess the IP address, or look at your router’s list of DHCP clients). Login as installer (password: install) and follow the normal instructions for installing Debian.


I connected my linkstation directly with my pc, so I can not get an IP from my router.
The DOS Box tells my client 192.168.11.150 and that the two files were served.

Like this pic shows:

what am I doing wrong?
thanks...

1. You are using a v1 guide for a v2 box ("may" be a problem).
2. You are not using a DHCP server.

The TFTP process is loading the two files and starts the loaded
kernel then.
This kernel (the initrd stuff, to be more precise) is looking for a
DHCP server. If it can't find one, it is using a "zero conf" address
from the range 169.254.x.x (which your PC can't see without
special configuration).

Advise: Use a DHCP server (e.g. router).

could mean that the device will not boot.. because I connected the my pc and the linkstation to a 4 port switch.
set the nic at first to dhcp an receive an IP. after that I assigned 192.168.11.1. started the ls an the installer is loaded into the LS.

after that nothing happens:-(

edit: not working. I now used the "original" initrd.buffalo and uImage.buffalo and the ls comes up and gets an IP

Seems as if you did an empiric proof that there are
problems using the CHLv1-Debian files to boot a
CHLv2 box.
Use a CHLv2 guide instead (sorry, I can't provide a
link, because I don't know if such a guide exists).

I am not sure of your facts given the initial response. Are you saying you do in fact have IP address with 192.168.11.150? If you know the address where the files were served try to ssh into that using username:installer and password:install. Then you will be running the installer.

Google "linkstation pro" in youtube to find a video of someone installing Wheezy on ls. It's quite informative. Did you run the the config script before starting the install? Do you have serial access?
