Installing firmware and getting root access

Post by razorpt69 » Sun Jul 27, 2014 9:42 pm

Hello everyone! As I mentioned in a previous post my NS2 stop appearing on network. I removed the hdd, formatted it, rebuild the partition table and installed what was needed. I can now get the NS2 to appear on the network and can see the first page of the initial setup but I have that problem of "the filesystem on /dev/sda2 is not accepted by the NAS"

I'm now having troubles getting root access (needed to fix that problem). Since I formatted the disk I guess the only options to get root access are:

- Through creating a custom capsule
- Enabling ssh with disassembling (Network space 2)

Since I dont have almost any Linux/programming knowledge I would prefer the disassembling option, because Im not finding it intuitive to create a custom capsule. It would be great if there were already made capsules that I could just download and update the ns2, but I was not able to find them. (My version is 1.2.93)

So I wanted to use the disassembling method. Despite not quite understanding if everything that needs to be done is clearly stated in the guide, I started doing it but when I try to mount the partition sda8 I get the following error:

Code: Select all

root@ubuntu:/home/ubuntu# mount -t ext3 /dev/sda8 /media/ns2 -o rw,data=orderedmount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda8,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so
And I'm stuck. I don't know if it helps but I got the syslog:

Code: Select all

root@ubuntu:/home/ubuntu# dmesg | tail

Also, in the guide its said that with older distros this problem doesnt occur, I wouldnt mind using an older distro and redo the whole thing just to avoid this problem, if someone knows which distro should I use not to have this problem it would also be really helpful

I'm really sorry to bother with this, thanks in advance ;)
