My WDMC is broken.
First I started by breaking the SSH access by setting PermitRootLogin to no in sshd_config, and I managed to resolve this by reinstalling the latest firmware.
Now I succeeded in corrupting the system by launching apt-get update, then apt-get upgrade, which resulted in unsolvable dependency problems (if you want to know why I did this: I wanted to mount a truecrypt device to copy directly from disk to disk because over the network it is 6MB/s fast, and I have already almost 2TO of data to copy and I didn’t want to be waiting for 3,85 days, BUT truecrypt couldn’t be launched, I don’t know why, so I wanted to install tc-play instead, but it was not found in the archive, so I run apt-get update, still unfoundable, then upgrade and ooooooooh sh*t, apache2 won’t start anymore)
Of course, as I always do the bad things before the good ones, I asked for a reboot before re-reinstalling the firmware.
So basically, now the system won’t start. Red LED.
It means I cannot access the web interface.
As playing with root already voided the waranty, I opened the whole thing and disconnected the 2TB storage of the OS module.
Now my question is:
how can I “flash” this module’s memory to reinstall the latest firmware and override all my mess ?
PS: I received it today, I am really quick at breaking things. If I can’t fix this, I will probably buy another one with my summer job’s pay.
