Hi, I was upgrading to lenny with dist-upgrade and got the following oddity:
Code:
Preparing to replace libc6 2.3.6.ds1-13etch8 (using .../libc6_2.7-18_mipsel.deb) ...
Checking for services that may need to be restarted...
Checking init scripts...
WARNING: POSIX threads library NPTL requires kernel version
2.6.8 or later. If you use a kernel 2.4, please upgrade it
before installing glibc.

The installation of a 2.6 kernel _could_ ask you to install a new libc
first, this is NOT a bug, and should *NOT* be reported. In that case,
please add etch sources to your /etc/apt/sources.list and run:
  apt-get install -t etch linux-image-2.6
Then reboot into this new kernel, and proceed with your upgrade
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/libc6_2.7-18_mipsel.deb (--unpack):
 subprocess pre-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
 /var/cache/apt/archives/libc6_2.7-18_mipsel.deb
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)



Any idea how I can fix this and whether new kernels will work on my device?

As the kernel itself is a standalone peace of software, it will work. Your box, however, will probably be unusable afterwards, unless you flash uboot and replace kernel 2.4 in Flash ROM with kernel 2.6 _prior to upgrading to Lenny_!

andre, your understanding of Debian seems pretty good ... if he put uBoot + LNI's 2.6 kernel on it, and then booted into 2.6 in Debian & tried the upgrade to Lenny ... would that work? ie, is it good enough to just have the 2.6 kernel in /boot on the hdd, rather than in flash?

That should work(tm): init should be able to use the new libc6 in combination with kernel 2.6 at this point. Unless there were problems with the kernel's initramfs/initrd?

Note you can't use the unpatched Debian etch kernel at all (at least on PPC systems), and I'm not sure whether the Lenny kernel supports the LS1 (non-HG/HS) and LS2.

Uh, OK. How would I do that, exactly? (Using the firmware updater?)

There are uboot installation instructions in the wiki. I can't help you very much as I've never tried them myself.
