Re: NSLU2, Etch, and brick mode

Same here, had a slug running etch from a regular USB HD for more than half a year, all set up with disk labels in fstab etc. After an update around three weeks ago it refuses booting. Haven't really had time to play with it since then.

Oops, forgot to reply all:

I am having the exact same problem!

I was also using a 1Gb flash drive, but after the slug doing what you've
described repeatedly over the course of several days, it eventually stopped
booting completely. It just sat there with the Orange and Green LEDs lit as
you describe.

I thought it might have been the flash drive at fault (it was a cheap one),
but it does the same with 3 different USB hard disks too.

I thought it may have been related to a package or kernel module I might
have installed, but it does it even with a fresh Debian install.

I've got Etch running on a NSLU2, it's only external storage is a 1GB
flash drive. Yesterday I was testing everything out before putting it
into production, and everything is running fine. For the final test I
let it just sit for 12 hours.

When I came back to it, it was sitting in what I can only describe as
brick mode. It was powered on. The Ready/Status LED was orange, the
USB drive was not lit up, there Disk LED on the NSLU2 was off, and it
was not responding to any network traffic. To get it working again I
had to power cycle it.

When it's working, the LED on the USB flash drive is lit up, the
Ready/Status light is Green (Flashes Orange/Green when there is
activity), the Ethernet LED is Green, and the Disk 1 LED is green.

What can I do to figure out what is causing it go go into this
unresponsive brick mode that requires a power cycle? My initial
guesses are that power management put it to sleep or that it crashed
or locked up, but I'm not sure how to figure out what is going on
without a console.
