I've been upgrading my LS2, and have got as far as the 2.6.22.ls2
kernel and stuck. The story so far is:
Flash the LS2 with OpenLink 0.52b, and get a telnet login - OK
Add the C compiler package to OpenLink - OK
Build U-Boot 1.1.4 from LinuxNotIncluded and flash it - OK
Add the 2.6.22.ls2 kernel and modules - NOT OK
(The LS2 doesn't respond to telnet or samba or the off button.)
Add the 3.3 module init tools - STILL NOT OK
Run fix_ext2 on hda1 - ALMOST OK
The LS2 doesn't respond to the off button; it kills the telnet server,
but the machine remains powered up. While telnet is still running, the
shutdown command works as expected.

U-Boot boots the 2.4.20 kernel by default, entirely successfully, loading
it from the /boot directory. However, although the 2.6.22.ls2 kernel will
boot from U-Boot either via tftp, or by loading from /boot, it won't boot
by default. netcat shows a standard kernel boot sequence, but the LS2 then
simply ignores telnet and samba, and has to be unplugged to power off.

The problems with the on/off button make me suspect the mc_ctld daemon;
is the next step to replace this with avr_evtd (the MIPS version)?
I haven't seen this documented anywhere, but I haven't seen anything
on the requirement for fix_ext2 either. Does anyone have any idea
what I should try next?

Thanks - Will

I think this was related to the original 2.6* kernel :

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=4100&p=42834&hilit=.config+provided+by+LNI+solves+the+problem%3A#p42834

Try a different (precompiled) one from davygravy, weini or myself - there are a few about (for different loaders, get the right one)

Thanks - I'll dig around and see what I can find as alternatives.

Meanwhile there's another problem - I'd really like to get avr-evtd running,
or at least the off button working.

I've found another 2.6.22 kernel, which U-Boot can successfully load
from the hard drive. However, once again the kernel can be shut down from
the telnet prompt, but not from the on/off button - again, that just kills
the telnet and samba servers.

Removing the ntpdate command doesn't seem to change things (a long shot
sometimes suggested on the forums).

I've tried to install avr-evtd, but the init.d script require a file
/lib/lsb/init-functions, which isn't in the package; does anyone know
where it can be found? (And as a warning, "make install" puts the
binary in /usr/local/sbin, while the init.d script looks for it in
/usr/sbin).

Once I've found init-functions, can anyone think what I might try next?

Thanks - Will

BTW, from your link I get: "The requested URL /Users/Bauldrick/LS2/IPX/ was not
found on this server." Is it still available anywhere?

Yes link is probably dead, check in said usernames 'download directories'

I'm a little bit wonky at the moment after a jug or two of grape juice, but... are you doing all this with openlink or stock (haven't played with either for moons)?

Do you need the features provided by either of those? << nope you are openlink ... OK first thing

I think avr-evtd (that being from debian as opposed to avr_evtd) will look for other things that your openlink doesn't/will not have.

Ultimately do you really need openlink? From what I've read you might want to just have your LS2 running debian and play with it from there, but I don't know?

for a kernel try:

http://downloads.buffalo.nas-central.or ... 22-12/IPX/

hmmm, is that what the (dead) link should point to..

anyway, I'm making less sense, wheres the corksrew?

Thanks - I'll give that a shot. I'd hoped to try

https://weinberger.homeip.net:563/linux ... -w3.tar.gz

but there's now no way to get Firefox to handle non-standard ports.
(The suggested work-around doesn't.) I'll keep looking.

Thanks again - Will

I have the same Problem with the Power Button. Is there a chance, to get the Kernel ? A wget to https://weinberger.homeip.net:563/linux ... -w3.tar.gz gives me a 404 File not found.

I'm not be able to compile the Kernel. The make due to several errors.

Thanks

Sascha

edit:

I got the Kernel from http://downloads.buffalo.nas-central.or ... 22-12/IPX/ . Sorry, the Link gives me Yesterday a 404.

Regards

Sascha
