I got bogged down with this too. Couldn't any reference to extended partitions anywhere for partman. Evenutually just created 3 logical partitions (5,6 & 7) followed by a primary (2). I am hoping the three logical ones aare automatically placed in an extended partition by default. I will check as soon as I can get fdisk running under the debian install.

Finally after used couple hours i managed make extended partition right using Gparted and it work now great.

Looks like if partman does not created the extended partition by default I will have to use gparted. Did you take the drive out of the ns2 to use gparted? If not how did you install gparted? Thanks for the kernel suggestions on the other post too.

Yeah taked driver out (my machine is 2Big Network2 so its easy remove without open) Using debian in my desktop computer, just "aptitude install gparted" and it will install all needed components, dont sure about other systems. If u havent graphical interface in ur computer, u can use parted but im not family with that software.

Edit: make sure that ur software dont create automatic extended partition, u cant see it in normal partition table.

I posted my partition tables in the thread..."Modify (flash) U-Boot on NS2". They are not pretty but work nonetheless.

My next problem is Wake-On-Lan which I know the hardware supports as it was an option on the lacie software which I've just binned. Please don't say I should have enabled it before starting on the debian journey!

I have installed ethtool but get the following.....

Code: Select all

ethtool -s eth0 wol g
Cannot get current wake-on-lan settings: Operation not permitted
  not setting wol
I haven't done much digging around yet.....any suggestions welcome

I've also successfully installed squeezeboxserver 7.5.3 - which is the main purpose of the nas.

Thanks ZZRX. Good point since we flashed sda6 we are now using a different kernel.

2. Follow guide
3. Test it

Thanks. I will do some research.

I also need to get hard disk spin down working too. I found this fairly extensive article...

http://info4admins.com/tips-to-spindown ... -or-ubuntu

If I can't get this and WOL working then I will probably go back to the stock software and a debian chroot.

I've had no trouble spinning down the disk or playing with acpi (although I only use it to control the power button).
This is on a NS2 though.
