Explain uboot clunc usb

Post by chrisdh » Wed Oct 09, 2013 7:10 pm


I found this forum not so long ago, I have a lacie ethernet disk 1tB (edminiv2), the disk is dead (heads against the platter dead) So i was searching on google, found this site, got interested....

So what i want to know is, is it possible to connect to circuit board to my router and attach a usb thumb drive to the lacieboard it and make it serve a website or files or something?

I read somewhere that you can install debian on it.. I have downloaded uboot, clunc, but i don't really know how to use them :/ (also i'm running on ubuntu 1304 but i'm only a few months into linux so..) Can someone help me set up these things?
I know that there is something like jtag too (8 pins to the xilingx) , but isnt that for flashing/talking/.. withe the various µcontrollers on the board?

This is a late reply but maybe you're still interested.
I am not sure if you really need to deal with uboot and the like to get your device working. I am not an expert, though.

It looks like all you need is to replace the damaged drive. To accomplish that, all you need is here in the NAS Central.
Please make sure that your disk is a Lacie Edmini V2. Check out the wiki http://lacie.nas-central.org/wiki/Category:EDmini_v2
Then follow these instructions to prepare and install a new hard disk: http://lacie.nas-central.org/wiki/Insta ... Edmini_V2)

Lacie Edmini V2 runs an customised debian from factory. You can install a more recent version on a usb stick and use it to boot the device via reloaded.ko. Read the Painless Debian post http://lacie.nas-central.org/wiki/Painless_Debian
