私はテキスト文書にそれを、彼の住所いるする。私はまたシガーを煙らす間私のパートナーの下着で服を着るのを好む

google-translation:

As for me that address it is in the text document, it does that. In addition as for me while the smoke and others doing the cigar, the fact that it wears the clothes with the underwear of my partner is liked

*rolls around on the floor CRYING*

me 2 :p

So I sent him a mail - :

To use uncompressed kernel such as vmlinux, you should get the addresses (load address, start address) *BEFORE* executing objcopy.
# "nm vmlinux" , NOT "nm vmlinux.bin".

Objcopy strips all of elf header, so vmlinux.bin has no information about these addresses.

Challenging to 2.6 is great! Good luck!
#BTW, I'm porting NetBSD on my LinkStation (with my loader). Smile

Again, thank you for your challenging. My wiki will update with your information.

another update:

http://www5.atwiki.jp/kuro-bsd/pages/132.html

a new mipsel-loader.o-package is there that should have support for vmlinux.bin

http://www5.atwiki.jp/kuro-bsd/?cmd=upload&act=open&pageid=132&file=loader_mips.20060520.tar.bz2
bauldrick is mentioned in his wiki :) .... he seems to work with us ... great..

Hello, all.
# English is too hard for me. :)

Thank you for your interesting about my bootloader.
My main theme is NetBSD, and I have no experence about Linux 2.6.
If you have any question about the loader, ask me. I will answer that I can. :)

Hi Eiji :)

# English is too hard for me. :)

japanese is very hard for us too. you are doing well :) . http://www.google.com/language_tools is the only way to translate japanese to english

Thank you for your interesting about my bootloader.

there are many mips-linkstation-users that are very interested....i am sure

My main theme is NetBSD

some guys in this forum are also interested in getting xxxxBSD running on the Linkstation. i thought that u-boot was the only way to achieve that.

# I 'm NOT the employee of Buffalo. So I can't answer why Buffalo is XXXX. :)

well...thats a different story :)

Baudrick et al. mips compiling folks, I suggest you go with my new uni-linkstation-bootloader from <http://hvkls.dyndns.org/downloads/> instead of loading the kernel directly.

It would be a good idea to ask Eiji Kawauchi (which one is the first name please?) if he knows the 5-mins-of-fun problem, and invite him to this thread. Bauldrick?

OK - so I compiled again with using "make vmlinux" and before " I did "objcopy -O binary ...." -


nm vmlinux | grep kernel_entry >>> 80286040 T kernel_entry

nm vmlinux | grep _ftext >>> 80100000 T _ftext

Hi andre,

Eiji Kawauchi (which one is the first name please?)
Eiji is. :-)

if he knows the 5-mins-of-fun problem
Reset-after-5mins problem is probably control sequence mismatch
against Power-Controller (Freescale MC68HC908JL8).
I think (re)start of daemon is not enough.I'm seeking the right way, but I have
not yet.

To avoid this problem, I use "Disable-AVR" method. The operation is:
- Before push the power button, push the initialize button (on back of the box).
- Keep push the initialize button, then push the power button.
- LEDs (Power, Disk Full, and Diag) are start to brinking, release buttons.
This disables watchdog, shutdown, and halt operation.
To shutdown or halt, You normally input the command, and press control-c to
avoid blocking. (Process is sending reset/halt commands to Power-Controller
and it blocks.)
When your hear hard-disk is spinning down, then press the power button for
a while.

and invite him to this thread.
I'm already here. :)

Hi mindbender, thank you for your reply.
# Google is good, but not so good. Altavista babelfish too. :)

some guys in this forum are also interested in getting xxxxBSD running on the Linkstation.

I already ported NetBSD on KURO-BOX, LinkStationI, LinkStationHG, and TeraStation.
It boots with nbloader.o (modified version of loader.o).
But LinkStationII is not yet. So, As first, I make the bootloader with try and error.

<MEMO> The bootloader's problem as I noticed:
- Suddenly hangup during boot. It occurs during devices probe.
- Worst usage. Some good boot-selector is required. (andre's ?)
- Cache disable/flush. Is the code correct?

# It is 22:10 at Japan. So I'm sleepy. :)

Wow. Could you also port OpenBSD to the LS1 for me? ;)

nice!....good you are here....nobody understood ppc or mips assembly here in the forum.


OK - so I compiled again with using "make vmlinux" and before " I did "objcopy -O binary ...." -


nm vmlinux | grep kernel_entry >>> 80286040 T kernel_entry

nm vmlinux | grep _ftext >>> 80100000 T _ftext


then try to load the vmlinux.bin with the latest loader.o as described on enji`s wikipage.

That is not much difficult.
But I will prefer NetBSD/LS2. :-)

Really? If so, you should study so hard. :-)
BTW, me too. :)

I want to get stuck into this but have a few questions:

1. It was mentioned the 5 min reboot could be caused by the newly built Kernel. How can this be?

2. Now it is possible to build a new kernel on the LSII (but not possable to load it successfully) shouldn't we be looking to the boot output (Serial port) to see where it fails? Isn't the Dev linkstation a mips one and dosen't it have the serial interface brought out, who has this box anyway??
Failing that would it not be worth building netconsole into the kernel for this valuable output.

If I am to far out there then real me back in...
