I can't see it currently, that's right I thought I used the right name, but maybe not.

I used vi via the built-in "Terminal" on OS X. OS X uses LF as line end, & I use "Textwrangler" to edit files on the Mac, & I can select line ends to suit the target.

I'm looking through the DeBrick thread now of course, but so far I'm unsure how I can access the Amazon file where I inserted that line. Is the root partition supposed to be mounted to allow access beside the usual /mnt/us?

I have managed to get into diags mode, & switched to usbnet mode, as of course that's how I edited the file, but my connection is always refused.

I'll do some more reading, thanks.
