: LS220D Fan / Debian question
: GMAN73 July 10, 2019, 05:23:42 AM
Im getting a bit sick of the fan noise on my LS220D its way too loud, I feel like getting rid of it and buying another NAS, then I read about installing Debian which has the software to control the fans.  I have a look at the guide over at Github from 1000001101000.

I removed my current 3TB and 2TB drives and took a spare 1TB and hooked it up to Ubuntu, I partitioned it to 1GB formated it to EXT3, mounted it and copied over the files initrd.buffalo and uImage.buffalo.  I slotted the 1TB into my LS220D, it booted up with the white light flashing then the other light went to Red (is this EM mode). 

I then followed the guide from this website https://herzig-net.de/?page=unbrick_ls-wxl  by running LSupdater on a Windows 10 machine, but once it does all the updates Im still on the normal firmware 1.70 and not debian.  So what Im I doing wrong?

The LS220D is at the default, now if I put in my original (3TB and 2TB drives) will they read okay or will they get wiped and I will have to copy over everything from backups.

Thanks

Good to hear from you!

I'm not sure where your Debian install went wrong but I'm sure we can figure out a way to get it working. From your description is sounds like something didn't work correctly either with your partitioning or with the install files. It appears that when the device failed to boot the installer image it then booted from the on-board NAND into EM mode (either that or you loaded buffalo's *.buffalo files instead of the ones from GitHub).

Now that the firmware updater has re-partitioned/reformatted the drives you could try again. You can be certain those partitions work with the boot loader which should narrow down where your first attempt went wrong. If you still have trouble I can probably help troubleshoot though I'll need detail about what commands you are using at each step.

To answer your other questions:

The Debian install process doesn't make any changes to the device itself, everything is stored on the hard drive(s). You should be able to put your old drives back in and boot back into the stock firmware without any issues.

As you mentioned, you can control the fan speed from Debian and can use the pwmconfig utility to set the temperatures at which the fan changes speed. Be careful when using this ability, drives can heat up pretty quickly in these smaller devices which could be an issue if you set the fan too low.

Hi 1000001101000,

Not sure what is going on, I may attempt to copy the files over to the boot partion using the commands in the github guide.  Would prefer using Windows to do this as I have no experience of Ubuntu.

I obtained the two files from the Buster location at github.  If I dont have much luck then I will probably sell the NAS on Gumtree and buy something else.

Thanks for the response.

Well Iíve managed to get to this bit :

6. Navigate to the /boot directory.
    cd /boot
Terminal is sitting at [admin@LS220DEABF boot]

Then I have realised how do I copy the files that are stored in my directory ď/home/gerry/gmanĒ to the boot folder of the LS220D.  Iím a total novice when it comes to Ubuntu Linux commands.


 Thanks

I usually use sftp at that point. The commands will be similar to:

[admin@LS220DEABF boot]: sftp <your user>@<your PC's IP>
> cd ď/home/gerry/gmanĒ
> get *.buffalo
: Re: LS220D Fan / Debian question
: GMAN73 July 10, 2019, 05:08:39 PM
Think Iím gonna call it a day with this.

After I go to cd / boot

 I enter

sftp Gerry@192.168.0.11 (my computer IP from NIC)
Comes up about ECDSA key finger print
Are you sure you want to connect - I select  Yes
Cones up Gerry@192.168.0.11 password
I enter 1973 thatís the password I use to logon
Cones up permissions denied.

Shame as I really wanted to try this firmware

Think that I might buy another NAS I donít know whatís going on I can connect to the LS220D do the prompt cd /boot but when I do sftp gerry@192.168.0.11 I get the message connection closed by 192.168.0.11 Couldnít read packet: Connection reset by peer

So looks like thatís stopping me from copying files to the boot folder

SSH/SFTP/HTTPS donít work well within the stock firmware because the tools are old and donít support the current cyphers/protocols. That is why I provided that example that only uses telnet/HTTP.

Try using the commands from my post, that should get you up and running.

howdy,

question 1: The exact folder doesn't matter at all, it merely needs to be the directory with the *.buffalo files.

question 2: I should have been more specific about the last part, though I show the commands one right after the other between issuing the reboot command and attempting an ssh connection you need to wait 5 minutes or so for the device to shutdown and then boot into the installer image and start the ssh connection. that error could indicate that you merely didn't wait long enough.

it looks like you're really close to getting it working.

Hi 1000001101000,

Done all the commands

At this point the LS220D reboots so I have done it right, I will wait for 10mins and then I do the following below with the same terminal open that I used for all the other commands

gerry@dell:~$ ssh installer@192.168.0.34
ssh: connect to host 192.168.0.34 port 22: Connection refused


So the Port 22 Connection refused bit is stopping me from installing, this is the only stumbling block.  Will the initrd.buffalo and initrd.buffalo still remain on the boot folder even if I switch it off or will I have to redo the whole scripts.


Just wish I could get this port 22 connection sorted I get the impression that its my ISP Virgin Media thats blocking it with their crap Superhub 3, though when I run ShieldsUp at grc.com and it gives me a green box (stealth) for SSH 22 when I probe it the port shows as closed

So looks like my ISP is the culprit for the last part :(
: Re: LS220D Fan / Debian question
: 1000001101000 July 13, 2019, 01:32:32 PM
1. Yes, the files will stay in place between reboots.
2. All the connections involved in this process are on your local network, your ISP won't be involved at all.

if it still doesn't come up if you try too boot it I'd guess the *.buffalo files could be bad (perhaps improperly downloaded from github or otherwise corrupted). Could you run md5sum *.buffalo* in the folder where those files are and post the result?

I decided to connect the LS220D LAN cable directly to my PC NIC, set an IP for my NIC.  Linkstation was recognised when I input the Linkstation IP address 192.168.0.34 into my browser and it takes me to the Linkstation settings page, but still the same error message ssh: connect to host 192.168.0.34 port 22: Connection refused

So it must be something to do with my PC and nothing to do with the Superhub 3.

Just to check that the command is ssh installer@192.168.0.34 I dont have to put anything else in like Admin hostname password etc.

I tried using a program called ACP Commander GUI for Windows and it connects to the LS220D using Enable SSH on port 22936 and it seems to recognise it, but if I change it to port 22 then it does not, so I may need to change the SSH config for port 22936 on ubuntu sshd config.

I enter admin and nas password and now when I do ssh using putty in Ubuntu it now actually does something instead of refusing to connect,

Is ssh installer@ip the command to actually install the Debian FW or should it install once it reboots I already have the two files sitting in the boot dir or do I run another command instead.

okay, I think I see the problem now.... possibly.

change your wget to pull from the python http server you started rather than from the copy you put on the nas share.

it should be:
wget http://<ip of your desktop>:9000/initrd.buffalo
etc.

I don't see specifically why your method wouldn't work but I'd like to try it the other way to be sure.

: Re: LS220D Fan / Debian ques
: GMAN73 July 14, 2019, 11:43:03 AM
I get a connection error when doing wget myipaddress this must involve configuring wget to pull files from my folder on my PC which I donít know how to do.  :(

Anyway I pulled the two files over did sync and then ls to list folder to make sure they were sitting there with the buffalo bak files, they were I used the reboot command and it rebooted well no Debian showing in the webpage for the NAS, did all the commands again up until I got into the boot folder and the 4 files were still there 2 buffalo and the 2 bak.  So itís not booting them for some reason. 

I switched it off and I took out the 2TB HDD in bay 2  and turned it back on did all the commands again and I notice that in the boot folder the 2 bak files are not there so that got me thinking has the boot folder Iíve been seeing been for the 2TB in bay 2 and not the 3TB in bay 1.

So Iíve done all the commands again and transferred the files over and done the reboot command.  It started flashing for a minute and now itís just staying white with no hdd loading, getting page not displayed when using the IP address in the browser and itís recognising it in my router devices by its MAC address and not the name of the device, so think itís start to call it a day.

Thanks for all your advice  everyone

The username is installer and the password is install

Awesome.

Just remember the first partition/array needs to be formatted ext3 and mounted as /boot

If youíd like, take a screenshot of the partition screen before you save your changes and I can verify if it looks ok.

Hi 1000001101000,

So 1st partition set to ext 3 and mount is set to /boot also selected format, though itís came up about root file system which partition mount is set to /

If you donít use raid take it you just use the scsi disks further down.

Thanks

You can do it either way, though if you donít use raid you should delete the arrays first.

You can use the first array as /boot as long as itís formatted ext3

Well it finished the installation and the NAS then rebooted.  Should I not have a different webpage menu for the NAS or will changes like fan speed etc need to be done via ssh / terminal etc.

Thanks

The installer just sets up a basic debian install which includes the ssh server. Anything else you need to install yourself, such as fancontrol to control the fan speed.

If you want a web interface you can try installing openmediavault which I found works reasonably well on these devices.

One thing I did notice though is last night it came up finished installation even though the bar was only at 95%.

I decided to try again with a different fresh 1TB hdd in , one thing I was reading over at https://wiki.debian.org/InstallingDebianOn/Seagate/PersonalCloud
is that it also mentions using a DTB file for you device.  So decided to put the LS220 version on the boot folder along with the other two files.  I did the install, but it never gave me those confusing different options and the install seemed to be differnet from that of the 1st attempt on the 500Gb drive which gave me different options.  I got the Finish the Installation message, selected continue and then it started installing other stuff then it came up Finishing the Installation, but once again it ended at 95% followed by connection closed by myip.

On the partition bit cannot remember what option I used, but the option created, the partitions for me i.e boot, swap etc.

The device rebooted and its not booting up lol, though I can still access the ls220d via ssh installer@myip

Would be great a see a full video of the install of Debian and how it looks running on the buffalo NAS.

Im going to give it another go anyway.

1. These device load DTBs differently than the Seagate Device you read about. The DTB is actually appended to the kernel file before it is packaged for the bootloader. Loading the file into /boot won't affect anything.

2. Make sure to get a picture of your partition screen this time, that is almost certainly where things are going wrong. The installer doesn't have anything in it to verify whether you've selected a configuration that will actually work or not. I may try to add that to a future version but that'd be a tough thing make work reliably.

3. I believe there is a youtube video of someone installing Debian on an older device that should be basically the same process. If I get some time in the next few days I'll try recording a video while running through an install.

4. I've never noticed the progress bar ending at 95% before but I doubt it's an actual problem. I'd guess that it closes the ssh connection at 95% and updates it to 100% when it finishes other shutdown tasks but you don't get to see it because the connection ends.

That looks like it should work if you make the first raid device (#0) /boot and the second one (#1) /
