Confirmed: custom capsule script working on 2.2.3

Post by klaafstra99 » Tue Jan 17, 2012 12:20 pm

Hi,

I can confirm that the script v7 (for creating custom capsules, see: http://downloads.lacie.nas-central.org/ ... .sh_v7.txt) is working for the capsule release 2.2.3 (16 January) on the NS2. All features (SSH, Twonky, Transmission interface etc) are working (I own a 'Classic' NS2).

I used Ubuntu 11.10 for running the script. Make sure you login as the 'root' user, otherwise the mknod statement in the script is not executed correctly. I used the update method via the Lacie Network Assistant.

Please note: It seems that nothing happened during updating, and it reported an error that the update failed, but after about 10 - 15 minutes the Lacie came up again: fully patched. So grab yourself a coffee, tea or a beer and have some patience!

Good luck!

Didn't work for me.
Compiled the capsule with ubuntu 11.10 and uploaded with Network Assistant. The upgrade stalled the disk for hours. I had to plug the power off. When I powered the disk again I had a warning message that the upgrade was unsuccessful and I found the old capsule (2.2.3) and ssh not functioning.
(I tried the "Update Method 3 - Manual Force Update", also: no success).

What is the current version of your firmware?

2.2.3 is the version that is already running on NS2. And you are trying to upgrade to the same version?

I'm trying to install a patched version. If I don't get wrong, this should correspond to a "2.2.3.1" version. Should I try to patch the next version (2.2.4) and install it directly (so upgrading from 2.2.3 to 2.2.4.1)?

Yes that's my understanding 2.2.3 should correspond to 2.2.3.1

Did you put it in a folder "Update" in the existing MyShare folder? I imagine the folder name is case sensitive.

Yes. I tried the "Manual Update" (that is, I created an Update directory under MyShare, put there the networkspace2_2.2.3.1.capsule file and then reboot the disk): after the reboot the capsule file wasn't there anymore (so the disk tried to install the custom capsule, I guess), but the version was still 2.2.3 and I had no root ssh access at port 2222 (I still have sftp access at the usual port).

I tried again and now it works!
Don't know why it didn't work before: apparently the only difference is that I turned the sftp server off before updating.

Anyway, thank you very much for your suggestions.

In Ubuntu 11.10 did you run the script as root?

I'm not sure what else to check.

Pleasure. I'm glad you have it working!
