  • Hello,

    Hardware Alix 2D13 with 4GB CF-Card.

    I use the nanobsd Image 2.0.3 an got the Error

    Enter full pathname of shell or RETURN for /bin/sh:

    i tried some other Images and other CF-Cards.
    Freedos-Image worked well.

    M0n0wall is also working.

    I have no other clue.

    It looks like this:,54323.0.html
    However that thread and it's references are all old. I would not expect this to still be a problem.
    Do you have any new serial devices connected? Or USB?


  • Hello,

    thanks for the Info. No there is no device connected to the Alix-Board.
    Only the RS232 Connection to manage the device.


  • Problem solved!

    I changed the USB <–> RS232 Adapter from Profilic based to FTDI based and it worked like charme.
