Hi,

I'm lost in all the information here. My LS2 still runs OpenLink 0.52b with kernel 2.4.x, so it's completely out-dated. But what are my options? I read about...

- running kernel 2.6.30.x (thx to davy_gravy)
- ...with u-boot and now working on all kinds of LS2 (there was an issue with some rom chip, right?)
- debian lenny
- foonas-em (is this project still alive?)

...but what's the current status of all these projects? What's actively developed? And what's safe if you don't want to brick your LS2?

1) running kernel 2.6.30.x (thx to davy_gravy)
2) ...with u-boot and now working on all kinds of LS2 (there was an issue with some rom chip, right?)
3) debian lenny
4) foonas-em (is this project still alive?)



1) ofcourse you can! But you can also run davys or another 2.6.22.* kernel and Lenny, as Lenny requires 2.6.*
2) you'll need to install u-boot, which is pretty painless (although may seem otherwise) - see impatiant doc here - The rom chip problem was not being able to flash foonas-em properly to second halve of flash I believe. Dependent on your chip, but can still be done
3) yes see 1)
4) this will be one of the best things you do - in order to recover any nasty situation you may incounter later on.
