do you still have that small fs image?
Here's the link

Please tell me when you have downloaded it, as I'm not sure the image is completely safe, so I don't like having it online.


So, made an xfs_metadump image of that (just smaller, easier to move around):


(don't worry, it's not linked from anywhere, I can take it down when you
grab it) and then:

bunzip2 sda2-meta.img.bz2
xfs_mdrestore sda2-meta.img sda2.img
mkdir mnt
mount -o loop sda2.img  mnt/
ls mnt
ls mnt/sbin

and this all worked fine for me on 2.6.25, eabi.

good to know!

Can you try the same steps on your box?

I'll report your result on the nas-central.org forum and I'll check what's the status of 2.6.25-rc2 on the linkstation (though I see that the orion.git repository is only updated to rc1).
If I find that it's possible to boot this kernel with no (or little ;-) risk I'll try it.
