Thank you for your answer. I'm glad to have you listening on the other side.
On lines 178-187, the fstab file you mentioned, can you remember what the content was you gave in before you rebooted? Can you confirm you actually want your NAS in RAID0? If you want to run it different, it's easiest to change with the buffalo web interface.
No, no. My mistake. I want RAID1. I explain the whole procedure here below.
What firmware are you running? I am surprised to read that your stock firmware is using ext3 instead of xfs. As far as I know, xfs is default on the LS-WVL.
OK, here there might be something, hope you discover it for me...
After bricking my NAS I formatted the disks on another computer with gparted as suggested by
kenatonline in post 4 of viewtopic.php?f=77&t=24581
Actually, the partitions I have now are copied from your suggestion at viewtopic.php?f=50&t=26775&start=15#p161745
I configure both disks exactly the same.
Then I reinstall the firmware 164mod1a downloaded from the site you suggested on disk 1.
I also follow kenatonline here.
Next, reboot the NAS and run LSUpdater.exe under wine on my unix machine.
After that I have a new working NAS with 1.64 firmware, Raid0 and root access.
However, I want to install debian on a RAID1 configuration. Here I start following your guide.
In Step 1 one initiates the RAID1 setup, interupts it to skip the 980 minutes wait, and restarts the
NAS with disk 2 removed. I am in that situation right now: I've done lines 102-104 of your guidehttp://pastebin.com/H6rEZ5ge
and I am ready to start step 3.
Now, to the files:
Can you also give me the output of the mdadm.conf file (with cat)?
root@Nas:~# cat /etc/mdadm.conf
ARRAY /dev/md0 UUID=efa653c5:5643d352:b78fdf7e:1eae21f5
ARRAY /dev/md/1 metadata=1.2 UUID=ed9ac047:86b49608:2380fe0b:2169e16a name=LS-WVL-EM44E:1
ARRAY /dev/md/10 metadata=1.2 UUID=4768c187:c02d02c3:77e273b0:5e26b024 name=LS-WVL-EM44E:10
ARRAY /dev/md/2 metadata=1.2 UUID=7d5ccedc:af32d432:27aa3914:17a032ff name=Nas:2
The file /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf contains just one line:
root@Nas:~# cat /etc/fstab
/dev/root / ext3 defaults 1 1
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=4,mode=620 0 0
root@Nas:~# ls -l /dev/root /dev/md1
brw-r----- 1 root disk 9, 1 May 2 2013 /dev/md1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 May 2 2013 /dev/root -> md1
Also, please cat /etc/mdstat
My NAS does not have that file:
cat: can't open '/etc/mdstat': No such file or directory
I do hope you find out what I'm doing wrong.
