Tested max serial port speed today and glad to see it support close to 1 Mbit/s (921600 bps)

Just an heads up if anyone else getting errors with apt-get update. My NSA-220+ have been chugging along nicely on Debian 5.03 and I haven't touched it for a while but today when trying to install some new packages it failed.

Turns out that Debian 5.03 (a.k.a Lenny) reached end-of-life in February 2012 and the repositories have moved so you have to edit your /etc/apt/sources.list and add the following repository.

Code:
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian/ lenny contrib main non-free

Another tip for your /etc/apt/sources.list to keep Lenny as fresh as possible...

Code:
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian-backports lenny-backports main contrib non-free


Do a "apt-get update" after adding it...

Read more about backports here..

you can update ubuntu lenny (5.0) to ubuntu squeeze (6.0) following the link bellow (i did it and it worked for me)
http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/apt-get-upgrade-debian-lenny-5-to-debian-6-squeeze/
could anyone help me to compile a new kernel (or the same kernel) but with ntfs [read/write] support ?
it's verry important for me to be able to write on partitions that are formated ntfs

right now i have kernel 2.6.18.6-cs #27 Fri Dec 11 20:02:58 CET 2009 armv5tejl GNU/Linux on my Zyxel NSA220

Quote:
after ubuntu squeeze i will try to upgrade to ubuntu Wheezy (found this link http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/howto-debian-linux-upgrade-6-squeeze-to-7-wheezy/ but i don't know if it works ...i will keep you informed

unfortunatly can't update from Ubuntu 6.0 to Ubuntu 7.0 because can't update libc6 because the kernel is older than 2.6.26 .
now i'm trying to build a new kernel that will boot (already made 2 zImage's but none of them booted the nsa-220 box) and will have ntfs write support.

Anyone got the HW RTC going? i2cdetect shows it's there at 0x51 (PCF8563 default HW address) but driver doesn't load according to dmesg and kernel is compiled with rtc and the PCF8563 driver...

Code:
...
mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice
ts: Compaq touchscreen protocol output
i2c /dev entries driver
device-mapper: ioctl: 4.7.0-ioctl (2006-06-24) initialised: dm-devel@redhat.com
TCP bic registered
NET: Registered protocol family 1
NET: Registered protocol family 17
VFP support v0.3: not present
drivers/rtc/hctosys.c: unable to open rtc device (rtc0)
...


Code:

#i2cdetect -q 0

WARNING! This program can confuse your I2C bus, cause data loss and worse!
I will probe file /dev/i2c-0 using quick write commands.
I will probe address range 0x03-0x77.
Continue? [Y/n]

Hello, maybe it'll be stupid question but ... I really need help :)
What exactly I have to do after I put all files on USB stick, connect it to NAS and power on NAS? I can see IP address in Advanced IP Scanner but I do not know how to connect to this address.
I'm using Windows 7 64-bit :)

Many thanks ;)

So you'll need a telnet client. For Windows you can use PuTTY for that. Make sure you select the 'telnet' protocol.

Hello Mijzelf!

First of all, sorry for the off topic question!

How Can I port the reloaded.ko to the nsa3** seria (for example the 320S)?

If I port it to the 320S, will it work with 325v2 too?

Thanks a lot! It will be very interesting. :D

Theoretically you can just compile the module against the kernelsources, with the right .config file. Maybe that gives some unresolved name errors, in which case you have to either pull the source of the unresolved name from the kernel and add it to the module, or just add a variable with that name, if you think the function won't be called anyway.

In practise I already tried that, years ago, and it turned out a Kirkwood kernel just doesn't want to reload this way. I guess some cache has to be flushed, and maybe the CPU has to be in another state when loading the kernel.

If you really want to reload the kernel, you should check if kexec works on a Kirkwood (needs a kernel with kexec support to be active), and if yes, check which 'deinitialisation' is done before rebooting.

Hi!

I already tried compiling it, but says the following:

Code:
make -C /mnt/HD_a2/build/kernel/trunk/linux-2.6.31.8/ M=/i-data/bf835951/build/reloaded CROSS_COMPILE= ARCH=arm modules
make[1]: Entering directory '/i-data/bf835951/build/kernel/trunk/linux-2.6.31.8'

Yes, that's right, the mach-mv88fxx81 folder doesn't exist in my kernel sources. I have only an mach-mv78xx0 (which has similar name), and a lot of other...

Then you have to edit proc-arm926.S, and change the path of the included file. But it's certainly possible that the whole included file itself doesn't exist anymore.

Yes, this folder doesn't exist at the NSA320S kernel source...

Is there any other way to solve the problem?

Download the NSA220 kernelsources here, have a look at the original .h file to see what it contributes to the module, find the corresponding functionality in the 300 sources, and edit the module sources to match the changed syntax/whatever.

hi can someone please help me,

tried multiple times to get it to work on my nsa220plus fw3.24, downgraded to fw 3.22 as described in a post, still no luck.

sys led keeps blinking, but cant connect with telnet, most of the times it doesnt even extract the tgz.

im sorry have only a faint idea how it all works, so cant really troubleshoot myself...

could someone at least point out how to find and interpret the log file?

drives me crazy, that i dont know what goes wrong...

thanks in advance
