NSLU2 Almost Set up

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: 239413541440 files (0.9% non-contiguous), 4416027080640 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

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