9. problems

9.1. Old stuff; repository not found

There comes a time that your nslu2 should have been upgraded but for some reason, it wasn't. And then suddenly apt-get stops working. The solution is to upgrade, but for that you need a repository. So, put the line
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian/ etch main
in /etc/apt/sources.list. Now it works again.

9.2. A failing power supply

The powersupply of the NSLU2 is weak. It must be replaced with something new after a year. On the website of the Debian NSLU2, many recomendations are done. I have more than one SLUG, so I decided to go for a better solution.

Oh, and despite what others say, a failing powersupply can break your slug. So replace it early.
