Installation of Meteohub on NSLU2 failed

Post by admin » Sun Feb 01, 2009 11:22 am

Symptom:
NSLU2 firmware has been flashed to Meteohub firmware image 2.3 and USB Stick has been setup with actual USB stick image, but after booting Meteohub it is not reachable via HTTP. IpScan does see the IP and I can login via ssh/putty (user "root", password "meteohub" ).

Cause:
NSLU2 boots firmware ok but does fail to hand over to USB stick to do a boot of the full Meteohub system. As a result, ssh gets enabled, but http server does not. in 99% of cases reason for not being able to boot USB stick is that DiskImage has not been used correctly for setup of USB stick.

Cure:
When selecting a target drive with DiskImage, please scroll down the entries until you reach the section with entries called "Physical Disk". Select USB stick (can be recognized by its size) here.
