Hi,

Since Debian Squeeze has choosen kernel 2.6.32 as the main release, I built the lastest released stable kernel 2.6.32.16 with some modules. It has been up and running for about 1 week now and quite stable.

It is a u-boot kernel so you need the latest bootloader from Shihsung. Due to the needs of setting "R/W multiple sector transfer" to the harddisk using hdparm, I decided to use the old IDE driver. So you need to change the kernel boot command to root=/dev/hda1.

Thanks Shihsung for the patch for 2.6.30.5 which I was based on.

(RTC is fully working now! If you downloaded before 2010-7-16, please download again)

Good luck!

Hello, whats this then ? :up:

Nice one ramp!

I've just tftp'd to LS2 and it comes up good and proper like. I haven't broken my LS2 in a while, shall have a good bash now!!

Should I upgrade the kernel (2.6.30 => 2.6.32) before or after upgrading Lenny to Squeeze?

Well, meanwhile I'm on Squeeze with 2.6.30.5, because I'm afraid of this u-boot image here. :(

* can't we use the official u-boot version which is available as a debian package?
* I want to stay with the libata names (sdX instead of hdX)

Hello ramp,

This kernel runs great.

Would you please post your patch when you get a chance? Have been trying to build my own (adapting shihsung's older patch for 2.6.30.4) but w/o success.

Also, did you compile on the LS2 or with the ELDK?

Thank you,
Felix
