don't do it from scratch if you can avoid it.

Yep.

Also, I was browsing the forum last night and someone mentioned that they put Alpine on but there was not detail on how it was done. OpenWrt is also interesting but is there way to install to USB than flash?

Thanks very much for your great work.

Sorry, I was not aware that you are still having trouble downloading the u-boot image!

I've updated the u-boot installation post to include Dropbox links for everything. Looks like I will have to stop using bitly from now on. I need to find a better shortening service.

It's all good. I'm now on the latest uboot, and rebuild a rootfs on a ext4 partition on usb storage.
I do not see kernel boot message in netconsole though. Is it enabled?

I gotta be honest, I've never understood the need for a shortening service. These aren't tweets or text messages limited to a certain length. :-)

As I've mentioned, I use bitly to record the download count. Dropbox does not provide download count. If I see not too many people are intertested in a certain image, then it's something with low priority on my queue.

Sorry, I missed that. I should have known there was a reason. :-)

NP :) I don't like them much myself.

Also, about this topic, Dropbox policy is not Linux's friendly. If anybody knows Gdrive or OneDrive provide download statistics, please let me know.

GitHub will track downloads if you generate a release and upload an “asset” that is associated with that release. Then GitHub will track downloads of each artifact and you can query the GitHub API to get download counts for each asset for a given release.

moonman @ alarm forum is super informative.

The clue is this
Unsupported feature found (64bit, possibly metadata_csum), not mounting

And the workaround is this
mkfs.ext4 -O ^64bit,^metadata_csum -t ext4
