Did anybody upgraded their ppc to Lenny?

I have freelink and Kernel 2.6 installed on mine but bricked it when I upgrade the dist to Lenny.

I have tried this myself, and my LinkStation HG also failed to Boot. Have re-flashed the firmware, and it's fine now.

I believe, from reading other posts, that you need to install uboot and a 2.6 kernel into flash before Lenny will work. I haven't done this yet, and may never do it, as I'm fine with Etch for now. See the wiki for info on uboot. It looks too tricky for me to attempt though, so am not going to bother.

I will try to move/append this thread to a previous thread I seem to remember...

Please, if you do this process, help others by reporting back as many details of the procedure as you can. I could be something that would help other users.

LS1 (foonas, nfs, Tranmission & p910nd print server, Firefly for my Roku)
LS-HG500 (Lenny)
Various LS-Pros v1,v2 (unbricked w/ serial & jtag)
KuroPro, LS2 & KuroHG (foonas)
Working on davysweather.dyndns.org lately...

=> wooohooo!
Unknown command 'wooohooo!' - try 'help'

My experience was a good one. No bricking, I did a brief writeup somewhere here or there. Let me see if can find it. It was a Linkstaition HG300. It had been opened in the past, and I had a good old fashioned PC with an IDE cable and power connector at my disposal.

Double check your uboot parameters
There are 2 configuration flying around, one boots vmlinux.Uboot, the other uImage.
Lenny tarbal contains ONLY uImage!
