Lenovo Iomega IX2 partition and installing third party softw

Post by EMC2 » Wed Dec 09, 2015 7:15 pm

Hello,

I have a IX2 nas that I would like to install some third party software onto, Logitech media server to be more precise. I have encountered an issue in the partition size of the LINUX part that seems to be too small?

df -h command gives the following:

Code: Select all

root@Natverksdisk:/# df -h

The attempted installation of logitech-deb file gave the attached error. Trying to resolve that I ran "aptitude update" but that could not be completed due to no space available.

Any recommendations?

Code: Select all

An error ocurred, return value: 1.

Hello again,

After some further googling it seems like Lenovo was a horrible option to buy when the idea was to be able to put different programs running on the NAS. It does not even haze zip unzip programs installed, quite a disappointment I must say.

For example when trying to install unzip I got the following message:

Code: Select all

Unpacking unzip (from .../unzip_5.52-12_armel.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/unzip_5.52-12_armel.deb (--unpack):
 unable to securely remove '/usr/share/man/man1/unzipsfx.1.gz.dpkg-new': Read-only file system
dpkg-deb: error: subprocess paste was killed by signal (Broken pipe)

The box just isn't meant to install packages the Debian way. The filesystems are either to small or read only. You can bindmount some directories on strategic places to bypass that, but it's inconvenient. If you want Debian, you'd better install Debian. If you only want to install some extra packages, you can try FFP.

Hello,

Thank you for the reply, well what I´m after is to get logitech media server up and running, Twonky installed and the rest maybe I can live without.

Installing Debian seems to be quite a risk only for getting a couple of programs working? Will this guide for getting squeeze installed help the situation? viewtopic.php?f=242&t=6207&start=0#p26961

From what I have understood of the errors give when trying to install logitech media server all would be ok if I only could get apt-get to run without issues?

No. The HMNHD is no sibling of the IX2. The HMNHD has it's OS (almost vanilla Debian Lenny) installed on a 'normal' 1GB partition, while the 'LifeLine' boxes have their OS in a series of loopmounted files and logical volumes.
