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) /

Hey 1000001101000,

Well tried this with the spare 1TB HDD (this wont be the actuall HDD im using, just using this to test it, raid is not setup on my NAS as I dont use it) I have selected manual for the partition and did device #0 /boot and device #1 / (root), but eventually got an error message after a bit "the target file system contains the files from past installation", i hit yes and eventually i got error base system installation error.  It is a new 1TB HDD setup from scratch and with the 2 images copied over why do i get "target file system contains files from past installation.

One thing I did notice though on the /boot folder of the LS220D it mentions u-boot-ls210.buffalo even though its not a LS210?

I installed Kazam and did a screen capture of this process and uploaded it to youtube if you get the time at somepoint it would be great if you could review the video to see where im going wrong, dont see me ever getting this working

Cheers for everything.

I believe you'll want to be sure to answer "yes" to reformatting when you specify the arrays as ext3 and used for "/" and "/boot". I beleive this is just what happens if you don't reformat and it detects a previous OS installed there.

Well looks like I finally got this working, I formatted the two partitions and it started the install.  I got no errors what so ever.  The device rebooted, left it for 5 mins, went to log onto my IP, but not connecting, checked on my router page and I saw that the NAS IP was connected and its now called debian.  Did ssh username@myip it asked me for password I entered the one created during the install process and I got this so looks like its been installed.  So this is where I log on to install all the goodies.

Now to figure out how to install a debian menu or another custom menu so I can see my NAS webpage when I go to the IP on my browser.  I notice when I turn it off at the back switch it still remains on, Im sure there are scripts to re-enable that to power down.

Uploaded a video of it to Youtube here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5L7frjOxPcM

Will record a part one with the java commands etc.

All I can say is 1000001101000 thank you so much for the advice its been so helpful.

Sounds like you’ve done it.

If you want a web interface to control most things, openmediavault works reasonably well on these devices. Otherwise there are guides online to do just about anything you can think of in Debian.
