Ta! If you would I hate using Xebian just to get Gentoox on there, just to confirm I then went on to run the tutorial after using Xebian to format, so it's not a hardware fault...

Ps: Well happy, now I have 2x200gb Gentoox Nas'es

Thanks for that, I can now boot and format the drive but I have hit another hurdle. When I try to WinSCP in to it to transfer over roofs I get;

Code: Select all

Command 'groups'
failed with return code 127 and error message
-sh: groups: not found.

Cannot execute SCP to start transfer. Please make sure that SCP is installed on the server and path to it is included in PATH. You may also try SFTP instead of SCP.
Command failed with return code 127.
It looks like the SSL server on the Restoox CD hasn't quite got the balls! It connects, I just cant move any files to it.

Also there is no shutdown on the Resctoox CD :roll: almost there hehe!

I'll add an FTP server to Resctoox. As for `shutdown`... dont use that, always use `halt`.

:wink:

Soon Resctoox will be as big as Gentoox hehe, Joking aside I think this is important, so if some one 'less' knowledgeable was to kill there install they can at least SFTP / FTP in and recover what they can...

One last thing, could you tell me how to re-enable auto fschecking, I know this is a big nono under a normal Gentoox install but I mean just on a Native ONLY install with warnings stamped all over it. I belive I would need to install ‘reiserfsprogs’ in order for it to support ‘reiserfs’ is this correct?

Oh and I can't believe how much quieter reiserfs is compared to ext3, my disk made a right old clatter yesterday with a ext3 200gb partition now under reiserfs it’s really quiet. I think under ext3 the head must fly about the disk more, that’s gota shorten the drives life….

To get autofscking back... you need to replace the /etc/init.d/checkroot file with a stock Gentoo one. I believe they are in the baselayout package.

Hi

I follwed the tut but with the Resctoox CD.
I made hda2 reiserfs.

Since Resctoox has no FTP server yet,
I installed an ftp server (ftpserver3lite) on my Windows PC and
copied the files with wget from within rectoox:

Code: Select all

Resctoox:> wget ftp://192.168.1.121/DISTRO/rootfs
Connecting to 192.168.1.121[192.168.1.121]:21
rootfs               100% |*****************************|  4000 MB    00:00 ETA
Resctoox:>
..works too.



Stevie.

Yes, thats a solution for now. I got sidetracked when my HDD broke... I should get to work on a new Resctoox again.

There, as promised... a new Resctoox with an FTPd. Consider all functions to do with writing and deleting files/ directories experimental. I've tested them quite a bit - they seem to work, but one should always be careful! (No, I havent been up all night doing this ;p)

Sweet, don’t know how you found the time with all the crap you had at the weekend. Will try to give it a whirl tonight.

Shallax, I tried the nooo version v2.1 but there is a problem with the FTP deamon. It doesn't seem to support files over 2GB. Its a bit strange because it shouldn't matter sqat!

I booted it up and

Code: Select all

# mkreiserfs /dev/hda2 
# mkdir /mnt/hda2 && mount /dev/hda2 /mnt/hda2 
Then ftped over roofs and it froze at 2GB, so I rebooted and

Code: Select all

# mke2fs -j /dev/hda2 
# mkdir /mnt/hda2 && mount /dev/hda2 /mnt/hda2 
Then ftped over roofs and it froze at 2GB again!

I'll look into it, but it may be a hard-coded limitation.

A possible solution I can see for now would be bundling Unrar with Resctoox so that you dont have to transfer 4GB over.

Would it not be easier to try and get the SFTP bit of the SSL server working?

I doubt it, but I'll look into it. I tried installing a static dropbear but that didnt seem to work.
