new kernel package ready to use
September 07, 2010 11:28AM
Now 2.6.35.7.4 online

fixed contrac sisusbvga(+consoleswitch) ntfs(readonly) hfs hfs+ support
usbgadgets addet automount fixed add i2c code

cd /tmp
fetch the kernel
wget 193.16.217.9/files/dockstarheavy.deb
kernel install/overwrite (save the old one)
dpkg -i --force-overwrite dockstarheavy.deb
!!!!!!!!!! u must rename the old initrd or delete
thanks to weo for the hint...
mv /boot/uInitrd /boot/org.uInitrd

  • ...none … LED off
  • ...nand-disk … LED nand activity
  • ...timer ... time controled LED
  • ...heartbeat … LED blinks like the heartbeat
  • ...default-on … LED allways on
add this 2 lines to rc.local
this disables heartbeat and sets the green LED on
echo default-on > /sys/class/leds/dockstar\:green\:health/trigger
echo none       > /sys/class/leds/dockstar\:orange\:misc/trigger

add this line
echo none > /sys/class/leds/dockstar\:green\:health/trigger
under
log_action_msg "Will now halt"
halt -d -f $netdown $poweroff $hddown
in /etc/init.d/halt
this shows u when it is safe to remove disks and power cable
on init 0 or halt command

my modify full install with nfs samba and ftp(root access)
with all fixes and script patches

if someone wants i build a actual kernel 2.6.35.3 with the dockstar patches

cd /tmp
wget 193.16.217.9/files/dockstarkandm.deb
dpkg -i --force-overwrite dockstarkandm.deb

ready to use
on boot is the orange led in heartbeat mode
u can simply ad following 2 lines to /etc/rc.local (bevore exit 0)
echo default-on > /sys/class/leds/dockstar\:green\:health/trigger
echo none       > /sys/class/leds/dockstar\:orange\:misc/trigger

and the led stays on green and u can login to the box

Tried it and it worked like a charm, awesome work might be something Jeff could integrate directly in the debian install scripts :D
Re: new kernel package ready to use

Thanks :-)

But, how did you do that ?
Now i have the Dockstar LED working :-p

Here's how to cross-compile a kernel package for installation on your DockStar. It assumes you have an armel cross-toolchain available in your PATH as arm-linux-gnu-{gcc,as,ld,...}.

1. Install the "kernel-package" Debian package on your build (desktop) machine.
2. Fetch the kernel source and apply the patches you want.
3. Run
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnu- menuconfig
to configure the kernel options you want.
4. Run
make-kpkg --rootcmd fakeroot --arch armel  --cross-compile arm-linux-gnu- --initrd kernel_image
to build the .deb containing the kernel and initramfs.

Hi eec,

i have tried it - the led works fine - but i have some problems with /lib/modules/2.6.35.3/modules.dep. I got some erros on boot ... not found. If I try insmod some modules from the command line, the same error message came.

Is this for NAND installation only?

I have installed Squeeze Debian using Jeff's scripts. If I want to upgrade to is new kernel, all I need to do is to log into the Squeeze Debian as root and do the wget and dpkg commands? It must be a stupid question for many of you and sorry about that :-).
Re: new kernel package ready to use
August 30, 2010 08:19PM
yes
get the package and install/overwrite it
Re: new kernel package ready to use
August 30, 2010 09:55PM
Yes. It works very well. Thanks.
Re: new kernel package ready to use

Sorry to disturb you, but I have installed the new kernel (works very well !), and now I need the headers:

E: Couldn't find package linux-headers-2.6.35.4-dockstar

But I don't know where to find them...

Thanks

Have you tested this one on Lenny as well?
Squeeze seems having some problems on two of my Dockstars but not on the other one. (Yes, I have three in commission. :-) I will test more and report to see if anyone else also have the same problem.
Re: new kernel package ready to use
September 02, 2010 03:22PM
this kernel can run under lenny but no guarantee
no i dont like lenny
its to old and has manny other problems for me (udev)
squeeze is verry nice for compiling source and much better for multimedia
Re: new kernel package ready to use
September 02, 2010 04:27PM
I have tried Lenny and Squeeze both. The advantage of Lenny is that once I compiled it, I can use the image on multiple Dockstars with no problem. For Squeeze, I compiled one on one Dockstar and it works fine. However, I couldn't use the image on another Dockstar. It looks like that the device is booting but I cannot access it. Even pinging it does not work. I don't know if others have the same issue as me. I will try more to see what is the cause.

sounds strange ...
compiling on arm ist not easy sometimes ....
