First things first, am a complete n00b to linux, and know nothing about it. All I can do is login to putty, nothing else.
I had purchased this Goflex base, a pen drive with Webmin, Itransmission and Samba on it plugged into the base and a 1 TB Seagate hard drive to store the downloads.
Used to download everything fine but I had a bad habit of just switching off the device without doing a proper shutdown by going into webmin (Because I had to run for office in the morning and was a pain in the bum to do the whole proper shutdown, which I believe caused the software to break). It wont let me login to Itransmission or Webmin lately.
I formatted the pen drive yesterday on a windows laptop and inserted it in the base, removed the HDD and tried the following without any success - http://archlinuxarm.org/platforms/armv5 ... oflex-home
(put the username as 'root' as this is what I used to login into putty)
Tried both commands
Can someone please help me as to how to proceed?
P.S. - The device was previously running absolutely fine so am pretty sure, what you call bootloader/kernel on the base is hacked?
