davygravy, you are spot on, it was again the different sata channel + the symlink
just booted to freelink on my lspro.
the first time it just did not work as i did not have the symlink for the initrd..
and no, i do not have the problem with shutdown of the box:
11:51:23 up 20 min, 2 users, load average: 0.09, 0.07, 0.01
so how do we solve that problem? is it possible to script this in the bootcmd somehow that it should try to boot to both ide channels? or is it possible to check if a hdd is present on the first channel and if not try it on the second?
or is there any way of finding out which box this is maybe? is there any hardware difference btw the v1 and the v2 hardware so that bootcmd can be set dynamically while installation within foonas-em?
that and a simple symlink from /mnt/initrd.buffalo -> boot/uImage (after installation) is enough....simply touching the file might also be ok i think?
EDIT: tried to flash back to jtymod (everything except BOOT enabled and i forgot to change the bootcmds again.....nothing is requested via tftp anymore....the network led isn`t blinking anymore.....i even disconnected the hdd. we really do not know what exactly happens when we reflash with the buffalo updater....who knows what they really do....i might need jtag know.....bad that i do not have it working on arm boxes so far...sigh...
EDIT2: maybe its now time to solder the second sata port.....probably it works if a hdd is present on the other sata channel
