Try the direct insmod, and wait three minutes. You have to re-open any connection.

as I said:

Quote:
loading the module seemed to hang my linkstation. It is now unreachable. Unfortunately I can't continue trying right now. I will continue later this day.

edit
the LS is now reachable and old kernel still here

So after direct insmod, the linkstation goes away for a few minutes then is reachable again but with the old kernel. That's where I am.

Is the debian version important? Cause at this moment, I'm running debian 4.0.

Etch should be OK (works for me; besides, my experimental bootloader contains an /boot/insmod.mipsel that should work in any case. The fact you aer disconnected also indicates successful module invocation).

You might want to download the software Eiji is running once more (loader and kernel; maybe something went wrong), then rename things. Also, post your /dev/hda[13] and swap lines from /etc/fstab; and tell us whether you have moved parts of the system to /dev/hda3 or not.

Code:
/dev/hda1       /               ext3    defaults,noatime,errors=remount-ro      0 0
/dev/hda2       swap            swap    defaults                        0 0
/dev/hda3       /mnt/hda        ext3    defaults,noatime                0 0

I haven't changed my fstab, same from the beginning (almost fresh install)
no system files on hda3

Change

/dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults,noatime,errors=remount-ro 0 0

to

/dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults,noatime,errors=continue 0 0

and see if that gives

vmlinuz? Eiji talked about an uncompressed binary, and all loader.os I know require one!!

Oh ok, so vmlinuz is a compressed kernel, I didn't know that.
I downloaded this file in an attempt to get new files in case something went wrong (as you suggested), but I picked the wrong one.
I'm trying with the file here right now:
(http://buffalo.nas-central.org/download/LS2_MI ... .22.ls2.gz).

Ok the kernel seems to start but it stops booting. Then the 2.4 kernel is back.
Since the last line is "eth0: no IPv6 routers present", is it possible that my router is the problem?
I know it doesn't handle well ipv6 and that creates lag on DNS requests on my linux desktops

this is the end of log of the 2.6 kernel and the start of the 2.4 boot.

You even get to NFS, which means the kernel boots, (presumably) all startup procedures are executed. Excellent. Now on to installing avr_evtd to make it stick, and module-init-tools ;)

Ok, I had already installed modutils; as for avr_evtd, I installed it just one hour ago but for some reason, it seemed to be already installed. Anyway I tried to reload the kernel and when it rebooted, same thing :
kernel loader started --> linkstation cannot be pinged --> few seconds later, pingable for like 10 seconds --> LS away for like 4mn --> 2.4 kernel operational

What's the problem? The 2.6 kernel boots ok but stops, is that possible that it looks for an ipv6 router that's not here?

Thanks.

IPv6 is not the problem. But if it bothers you, try

echo "alias net-pf-10 off # IPv6" >> /etc/modprobe.conf

While it used to work with previous kernels, I'm not sure about recent ones.

Well I have to say the 2.6 kernel is sure loaded, but it stays for just a few seconds.

I can rush to ssh my LSII do an uname -r that replies:
2.6.22.ls2 (yeepee!)
and bam! Stops working.

And the ipv6 trick did remove the error message, but not the problem. :-/
What did I do wrong! I feel so close to the goal!

try the original kernel at least:

I just noticed that I have a difference between my kern.log and Eiji's:
Mine shows:
Code:
Oct 29 15:05:00 linkserver kernel: Cannot find map file.
Oct 29 15:05:00 linkserver kernel: No module symbols loaded - kernel modules not enabled.
Oct 29 15:05:00 linkserver kernel: Linux version 2.6.22.ls2 (mihai@meme.inline.com) (gcc version 4.0.0 (DENX ELDK 4.0 4.0.0)) #1 Thu Aug 16 23:30:01 BST 2007

What is that map file and what are these module symbols?

Thanks

edit:
LNI: What do you mean by "original kernel"? Do you mean yours? And isn't vmlinuz a compressed kernel not compatible with eiji's bootloader? I'm lost...
