Hi asc,

I am glad that you have found the walkthrough useful. In my installations I have always had the kurobox box connected to a DHCP service (either LAN or WAN), as a result DNS configuration was taken care of automatically. Have you resolved your network issues? I would advise that you use the same IP address for both Lenny and Sarge, after all it is the same hardware with the same MAC address.

Thanks for the wiki contributions.

Nicholas

Hello Nicholas,

Yes got the networking fixed, the error was a typo I made. :oops:

All working perfectly and I like how it flicks between sarge and lenny for when I break things! Makes it far easier than getting in to em mode or removing the hd every time I break things :D

Your instructions were particularly useful and thank you very much for putting this online.

I tried to install Lenny with your great how-to, but something is going wrong at my KuroBox.
I applied al the steps in the howto, but after the last command:
Code:
write_ok
reboot

the KuroBox restarts. When I telnet to the kurobox i get this information:
Debian 3.0 Kernel version 2.4.17_mv121.
Is this correct?
I can login with the temp user, but because of the old kernel apt-get update isn't working correctly.
So i used the command:
Code:
/sbin/reboot

After the reboot i get into Debian 5.0! But after about 20-30 seconds the KuroBox shutdown completely. When powering the kurobox back on, i enter Debian 3.0 with the old kernel again. And after a reboot into debian 5.0, the kurobox restarts, and shutdown again after 20-30 seconds.

What am i doing wrong, how can i fix my problem?

Hi FutureCow,

It sounds like something is not correct with your installation. Ideally you should be able to reboot between the Sarge running 2.4.17_mvl21 and Lenny running 2.6.25.1 installation and retain stability. Regardless you should be able to run apt-get update in either installation.

Have a look at your syslog to see if you can tell what is happening with:
Code:
tail /var/log/messages

Although if your system reboots before you can type that you may need to boot into Sarge and check the Lenny partitions log from there:
Code:
mount /dev/hda1 /tmp
tail /tmp/var/log/messages

Also, if you see any red lights flashing before the box reboots itself it implies that some sort of kernel panic is occuring.

Worst case scenario I might advise re-downloading the files, forcing EM mode formatting and starting again... Only takes 20 minutes or so if you type really fast!

Good Luck.

That is unfortunate, those log files are not particularly enlightening.

My MD5s and SHA1s agree with yours:
Code:
md5sum debian-sarge-2.6.25.1-kuroHG-20100722.tgz 
5218715fee2f05703299e3b1b0c77635

sha1sum debian-sarge-2.6.25.1-kuroHG-20100722.tgz
5bb52614e1c77c3bdca4d9c09cd57de740c31a90

and
Code:
md5sum debian-lenny-2.6.25.1-kuroHG-20100722.tgz
fe3fb808c1038e7923bbbe75c81938bc

sha1sum debian-lenny-2.6.25.1-kuroHG-20100722.tgz
c50a35a1c1d51b8e8bc6ba375534206833593f55

and the matching snippet from my /var/log/messages from hda3 (lenny):
Code:
Mar  2 21:43:56 kurobox kernel: kjournald starting.  Commit interval 5 seconds
Mar  2 21:43:56 kurobox kernel: EXT3-fs warning: maximal mount count reached, running e2fsck is recommended

It seems strange that you cannot run apt-get in Sarge, what is the error that you are encountering?

I have only ever experienced short-lived reboots with a bad kernel install. Are you trying to run the kernel that I bundled with the images?

apt-get is working from Sarge now. The problem was the url inside the /etc/apt/sources.list
ftp:// should be http://

But Lenny is still not working. What is de FAN lock error inside the log?
I didn't change anything inside your package(like a kernel or someting)

I could put a (way too fat) .config and the kernel on my server if you want, including CONFIG_USB_PEGASUS=m. Disclaimer: I haven't tested it with my own kernel loader since I'm on uboot; nor have I had the chance to test it on the Kuro Box.
