NSLU2 Almost Set upPosted Sun, Apr 6, 2008 in:
I got myself an NSLU2 and set NSLU2 Debian up on it. It’s working alright except that the clock battery is dead so it refuses to boot up with NTP turned on.
Because of that, I get to deal with some fun stuff like this:
pib@home ~]sudo fsck /dev/sda2 fsck 1.40.5 (27-Jan-2008) e2fsck 1.40.5 (27-Jan-2008) /dev/sda2: recovering journal /dev/sda2 has gone 13975 days without being checked, check forced. Pass 1: Checking inodes, blocks, and sizes Pass 2: Checking directory structure Pass 3: Checking directory connectivity Pass 4: Checking reference counts Pass 5: Checking group summary information
/dev/sda2: ***** FILE SYSTEM WAS MODIFIED ***** /dev/sda2: 23941⁄3541440 files (0.9% non-contiguous), 441602⁄7080640 blocks
So apparently this partition, which I created 2 days ago, hasn’t been checked in over 38 years.
Also, there’s stuff like this this:
pib@home ~]ssh slug pib@slug's password: Linux slug 2.6.18-6-ixp4xx #1 Tue Feb 12 00:57:53 UTC 2008 armv5tel The programs included with the Debian GNU/Linux system are free software; the exact distribution terms for each program are described in the individual files in /usr/share/doc/*/copyright.

Yeah, I guess I’ve got to go find a new battery.
