It's been a long time since I did any hacking on my linkstation (an old LSPro-250GL V1), but I decided the time has come for a larger HD and a new kernel (I was using good old FreeLink_arm9-1.0rev2, but that's a bit long in the tooth now!)
So, I've been trying to follow the instructions in this post (viewtopic.php?f=18&t=5736&p=72241
), and think I am almost there, but seem to be a bit stuck at the moment... hopefully someone can help me out!
I've partitioned the new HD OK, extracted armel-lenny-for-lspro-dgv0.3.2.tgz into the right places (I believe), got my TFTP server to send out uImage_em_lspro_sda1kernel_sda2rootfs-setup when requested by the poor linkstation, and can telnet into my box and run footboot -h
The output seems OK, if slightly different from that in the linked thread - instead of
bootcmd=ide reset; ext2load ide 1:1 0x00100000 /uImage; setenv bootargs console=ttyS0,115200 root=/dev/sda2 rw ; bootm 0x00100000
bootcmd=ide reset; ext2load ide 1:1 0x00100000 /uImage; setenv bootargs firstname.lastname@example.org/,@192.168.11.149/ root=/dev/sda2 rw ; bootm 0x00100000
However, if I then reboot the box, it just beeps a few times and then sucks down the uImage.buffalo/initrd.buffalo files again, before eventually getting to the stage where I can telnet into it again. ssh doesn't seem to be listening
Can anyone see what I'm missing? Am happy to provide more diagnostic info if that's needed...
