I've repartitioned an LS1 with plenty of space on hda1, formatted for ext3.

I ran Andre's script (nice job, by the way), but no joy. Here's what I did.

1) I made sure that I was up to date with 'etch' and upgraded
2) The script ran without error
2) I ran /usr/local/sbin/kernel26.sh...which rebooted
3) Then I rebooted again

Checked /boot/...and can see no boot.log

Strange. What am I missing? Must be something obvious!!

For others having this issue, I solved the problem by using Andre's "legacy variant":

http://hvkls.dyndns.org/downloads/documentation/README-kernel-variants.html

LS1 now at 2.6.25.20

Code:
root@LinkStation:/# uname -a
Linux LinkStation 2.6.25.20-svn365-dirty493 #27 Tue Nov 11 11:03:15 CET 2008 ppc GNU/Linux


Andre, thanks for the great tools!!!

Edit: (later...)

1) I tried apt-get dist-upgrade to lenny and borked my LS and had to start over ...so I think it might be best to stay with etch. If anyone has a how-to on getting to lenny from here, I'd love to try it

2) I also tried using webinstaller with the "latest variant" for the 2.6.30 kernel and the installer reverted back to the 2.4 kernel. Getting back to 2.6.25.20 worked fine using Andre's "legacy variant."

Paul,


There is a prebuilt lenny distribution. Take a look at the following thread...


viewtopic.php?f=9&t=16626


I have uboot / foonas-em installed so I could just untar it to /dev/sda1 and it works fine for me.


Ken.

Hello,

I have an LS1 with OpenLink Installed.
I have installed the pre-compiled ppc tools as well and I am now trying to get the 2.6 kernel working.

I contacted Andre and he gave me the following reply and mentioned I should post, so here it is:
Quote:

Hi!

> Need some help on a LS1 with OpenLink. I can't get the 2.6 kernel to run. No error messages of any kind.
>
> There is no log /boot/boot.log to help either. It's like there is no trace of your bootloader trying to run. here is a listing of the /boot dir


I shall fix = revert this eventually. Use variant-legacy with Debian
Etch for the time being
<http://hvkls.dyndns.org/downloads/documentation/README-kernel-variants.html>,
or upgrade to uboot.

Be reading you at <http://forum.buffalo.nas-central.org/>,

I can confirm that on the LS1 with Open Link that the legacy Variant works!

Web-installer and helpers were already downloaded and installed from previous attempts.
Then I followed procedure from:

http://hvkls.dyndns.org/downloads/docum ... iants.html

touch /boot/variant-legacy
/usr/local/sbin/webinstaller-kernelinst.sh

The when finished:
/usr/local/sbin/kernel26.sh

Also tried to revert to 2.4 kernel as a test
/usr/local/sbin/kernel24.sh

Worked also...

Thanks Andre!
