I think you have debug enabled in the SATA driver. This always pumps this stuff out when the logger is enabled.

Will check for debug in SATA - not sure yet!

Also, according to wiki: "Note as the current UDEV package requires a higher kernel than the 2.6.12.6 kernel of Freelink ARM9 1.0rev2, the UDEV package should not be updated. Therefore hold the current UDEV package back, to avoid upgrades of it. "

Is this something to be aware of or is it "just" Freelink specific?

@gnyf

I believe you are using a 2.6.16.16 (or 2.6.16.57) kernel.
which supports udev

(only the older 2.6.12.6 buffalo kernel doesnt, which is why that is discussed
in the wiki)

@gnyf: Have you tested the standby function of micro_evtd on the TS PRO too?

Did you rebuild via Make? Can you launch via micro_evtd -c and post the messages at the micro_evtd topic?

I have installed debian sid distro using the netboot initrd ramdisk

but I did not use the installer,instead,I used debootstrap method to install a minbase system.

after installed,df's result is about 96M.

you can make some changes to the initrd ramdisk
1.unzip and loop mount the ramdisk
2.make a file named linuxrc in the ramdisk's / directory
3.put those code in the new created linuxrc file
Code:
mount proc
## Force EM (ram image) boot
echo "0x100" >/proc/sys/kernel/real-root-dev
umount /proc
exit 0

4.make linuxrc executable.

after this,there is no need to modify uboot's bootargs_root env param.
of cause,you can make a menu like freelink's initrd ramdisk to choose boot mode (such as boot from ramdisk or boot from sda2,sda6,sda7,even boot into a shell prompt).

Is there a root fs image available for download somewhere, for those of us who do not have serial port access?

Thanks!

You can also upgrade your current Debian install by following the migrate instructions at http://wiki.debian.org/ArmEabiHowto

I did this back in November with only minor issues along the way.

What type of minor issues? Can you offer some tips on what issues to expect, and how to resolve?

Thanks!
