I don't know where I can add a discussion but I was wondering if someone can help me,
I have An IOBOX and I tried to install an internal HDD 1.5T. The operation failed and IOBOX said that NMT doesn't support this HDD yet.
Although the format failed, I successfully connected with telnet, formatted the partitions, unzipped the NMT software to the correct partition. I also managed to load the init_nmt script and restart gaya and now the NMT works.
The problem is that NMT doesn't start if I restart the IOBOX.
I think that the issue is related to the fact that my /dev/hda1 is mounted to /HARD_DISK_A1 and /dev/hda3 is mounted to /HARD_DISK_A3 although the correct mount is /nmt and /HARD_DISK and something with the /share.
I thought of changing the init scripts but I failed to do so (since the scripts are not saved).
can you help?
If the partition setup is correct for the NMT, the disk volume name is HARD_DISK. So if you get HARD_DISK_A1, _A3 etc, it will fail. Should this occur, the typical resolve (at least for common users) would be to make clean re-install of the disk. And make sure your box is on recent firmware. You could google or search the forum for your HDD (brand/model) to see if there is more info there.
/share is a link to /opt/sybhttpd/localhost.drives/HARD_DRIVE/
I think you'll get better response on the NMT forums.

I would really like to install apps on my external usb HDD, but I allways get this message after I type:
/ # ls

/ # cd /opt/sybhttpd/localhost.drives/
/opt/sybhttpd/localhost.drives # ls

/ # /etc/init_nmt start

What could be wrong?
Thank you very much With regards
- Hello Data3
- What NMT model do you have (A110 etc)? What firmware revision?
- From the looks of the output it may need an additional symlink for /share somewhere along:
# ln -s /opt/sybhttpd/localhost.drives/HARD_DISK /share
NMT & FIRMWARE
Thank you very much on your quick response and srry on my broken english if I go wrong somewhere...
NMT: Popcorn A-110
My knowledge of Linux is less then zero and I see that I am not the only one with this kind of problem.
I`ll try to add this line when i arrive home and I`ll tell you what happend.
Thank you again!
ADDITIONAL SYMLINK FOR /SHARE
Now i got home and tried again.. Here`s the result:
BusyBox v1.5.0 (2010-03-12 14:25:37 MYT) Built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands. / # mkdir /mnt/temp / # mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/temp / # ln -s /mnt/temp/syb8634/ /mnt/ / # mkdir /opt/sybhttpd/localhost.drives/HARD_DISK / # ln -s /opt/sybhttpd/localhost.drives/HARD_DISK /share / # mount /dev/sda1 /opt/sybhttpd/localhost.drives/HARD_DISK / # /etc/init_nmt start SHAREROOT=/opt/sybhttpd/localhost.drives/HARD_DISK sh: 4: unknown operand /etc/init_nmt: line 246: cannot create /mnt/syb8634/server/php5server/httpd_inc. conf: Too many levels of symbolic links /
- That could mean we have a link that links back to the original link.
- I've not used this hack myself so I can't get you any further. If you are lucky lundman may spot this discussion and have a better idea of what to do, otherwise I suggest you bring this issue forth on the networkedmediatank.com forums where more people could have a look at it. / ~~
