Hi,

Does any one know how to get a squeezebox3 to work with a NAS drive, and which drives are supported?

Cheers
Steve.

I have purchased a Buffalo LinkStation and i am now awaiting delivery.

Out of interest how much damage can i do if i mess up the installation of slimserver, can it be reset to default if i get it wrong?

P.s. does anyone have a copy of firmware version 1.45 that they could email me?

Right i am following through the instructions at http://www.audiofi.co.uk/reviews/sb3.html.

On page to it states type telnet followed by the ip address, so in my case i typed

telnet 192.168.1.10

it is then meant to access the linkstation, i however get the following error.

could not open connection to the host, on port 23: Connect failed

i have version 2.05 of the firmware.

Any idea?

In a command prompt, try typing "ping 192.168.1.10"

That should come up saying "reply from...."

Let me know if that works and I'll take it from there

Cheers for your help, i think i will need to look at this with the light of day. One last thing, how do i know which processor the linkstation has to choose which version of the firmware i need?

Cheers you have been loads of help. Hopefully i won't need any more help, but if i do i know where to find you.

Cheers
Steve.

I've flashed mine to the Openlink firmware with no problems. IIRC you can reset the 'system' by re-flashing if you mess up the Server install. I haven't installed a server yet as the Twonky installer didn't work automatically and then i decided the linkstation worked just fine as a shared network folder. From what I've read my LS has a slightly different file structure to some of the instructions for installing Twonky. I'm not sure if that will make a difference to the Slimserver install as well or not.

okay flashed it with openlink firmware using the installer linked above.

I downloaded 2 files, it seemed to only use the zip file.

When i use telnet it comes up with

bash-2.05a# 06

and asks for an input

nothing about password and username.

I can still access the shared folder, so i haven't broken it yet.

and idea?

okay cool, slowly getting there.

How do i actually log into root.

When i type telnet 192.168.1.10 it takes me in, am i missing something?

I am at the point of trying to copy the new version of perl and have typed

cp /mnt/name-of-network-share/perl-5.8.5-linkstation.tar.gz /

which states no such file or directory, any ideas?

I think i know whats wrong, what is the unix equiv for the windows dir?

i.e. listing out the contents of a directory.

One step forward and i have now got stuck again, grrr

I need to uncompress the perl file, so typed

tar xzvf perl-5.8.5-linkstation.tar.gz

but get the following error.

tar (child): perl-5.8.5-linkstation.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directo
ry
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
bash-2.05a#
bash-2.05a#

However the file is there, so i have no idea what to do now.

can't remember what the 'z' option is but it may be you need to unzip the .gz file first ...

gunzip perl-5.8.5-linkstation.tar.gz

afraid not

ah, that's what the z option is for.

Apologies if you're gone through this but try...

pwd #show current dir
ls perl*

to check that your file is in the directory you currently in.
