I just found the kernel I made
Eiji's loader with insmod (zImage) seems to come up but shortly after turns the box completely off.
1st press on power button does nothing (very worried at this point) second press turns it on, back to old kernel
Andre insmod (vmlinux) gives:
root@LINKSTATION2:/boot# insmod loaderII.o kernel=vmlinuxII.bin load_addr=0x80100000 start_addr=0x80286040
loaderII.o: loaderII.o: unresolved symbol _load_kernel_end
loaderII.o: loaderII.o: unresolved symbol _load_kernel_start
ah - I think I remember just renaming zImage.bin to vmlinux.bin ( It's a while back) - so it wouldn't load anyway?
root@LINKSTATION2:/boot# ls -l /boot/vmlinuxII.bin
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 778240 Nov 7 22:29 /boot/vmlinuxII.bin
root@LINKSTATION2:/boot# ls -l /boot/loader_mips/zImage.bin
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 778240 Nov 7 22:28 /boot/loader_mips/zImage.bin
My reason is I wanted to try something like the sekuro-box, but with a security cam on the door and see if the Linktheater would pick up the "live stream"(probably out of the realms of possibility and a massive longshot for me) .
OK - I've got an LS1 I might try it on - is it possible?
Anyway it seems developement was a bit dead for LS2 - could wake it up a bit!!
Eiji spoke of a patch for 2.6 for a different box with the same components, could it work?http://buffalo.nas-central.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=8588#p8588
I found RouterBoard 532(@routerboard.com), which uses same CPU as LS2,
and it seems already works with Linux 2.6.
Discussion forum is at http://forum.routerboard.com/viewtopic.php?t=2996
Patch is also available. (But I dosen't test it yet.)
The patch includes CPU init, PCI init, and some RB532 specific codes.
On LS2, it still need to add some codes such as RTC, reboot, and shutdown, but
I think there is better way than codes from *pure* Linux 2.6.
