In, some of the permissions in /usr/bin are 766. This is how I fixed it:

find /usr/bin -type f -perm -g+w,-o+w -exec chown root.root {} \;
find /usr/bin -type f -perm -g+w,-o+w -exec chmod 555 {} \;

Are differences between the V1 and V2 Linkstation Live stated correct?

I should have the Linkstation Live Old hardware when comparing my device to the pictures on the site. Although, when I did the install of FreeLink, the instructions for the newer hardware worked better ("Installation on V2 (NEW hardware) LS LIVE (running 2.06 Buffalo firmware) using LSUpdater"). The instructions for the older (v1) Linkstation Live just caused the Linkstations firmware to corrupt. Before flashing, I had the firmware version 2.06 installed.

Linkstation Live 500GB Gigabit version 2 confusion

Some confusion when I looked at my Linkstation up close before I went ahead with it.

Despite being a version 2 Linkstation Live the device had firmware 1.06 - and not 2.06 as expected. Or at least this is what it said on the status pages in the link station.

In the end I used firmware 2.10 as my basis, exchanged the relevant packages with the ones from Freelink and got on with it. A few very sweaty moments with the device rebooting at least three times and flashing on all diodes resulted in a a successful install of Debian. Thanks! Refdoc 08:09, 28 March 2008 (CDT)
