Re: NSLU2 Install problems with 4.0r2

I had one crash and one failure while trying to install Debian 4.0r2 on my NSLU2:

1. Crashed while trying to write a new partition table.
2. Failed during software install step, tried to setup as a Web Server and File Server.

The crash was a one time event, I haven't tried to recreate the failure because it only happens after taking some two hours to install all the necessary software. After installing using only the base software I was successful in getting the slug up and running.

Funnily enough I've just started experiencing exactly the same problem
with a cheap no-name ADSL router which I'm trying to set up for my father.
 The first computer to connect to it gets working DNS whilst the second
one gets all DNS queries answered with as the address.  This is on
the end of a Tiscali ADSL connection, so I don't know whether it's the
router or Tiscali f**king things up.

Sounds like it's the same as your problem though.
