But in newer crosscompile you'll need to use a workaround to compile armel packages... I'll try to find my steps to use tomorrow... (but I found it somewhere here or using Google...)

Just for the records: If compiling with make-kpkg fails, try the following command.
DEB_HOST_ARCH=armel fakeroot make-kpkg --arch arm --cross-compile arm-none-linux-gnueabi- --append-to-version=-kirkwood --revision=1.0 --initrd -j 2 kernel_image kernel_headers

Ok, here is the 3.8.4 kernel, compiled with ipv6 and netfilter (iptables) support:
http://download.prodigy7.de/files/packages/kirkwood/kernel/

Because I've changed the name from dockstar to kirkwood, the dpkg package manager detect the kernel type and install the kernel additionally with mkimage on pogo plug v2. So if the package is installed with dpkg, directly the uImage and uInitrd is refreshed in /boot and nothing more is to do!

... except maybe to save the old uImage and uInitrd before the installation. But thank you, I always had to look for the commands to create the files in the forum.

Hi,

I tried many kernels, including this 3.8.4 from prodigy7. But none of them will boot, my Goflex Net is stuck at "Starting kernel...". The 3.3.2-kirkwood-dg kernel boots fine from an ext2 usb stick and two SATA HDD attached. Any ideas what is wrong with my config? This is my environment:

Did you already update your uBoot?
http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?3,6965

But be careful - for some reason I needed to change my machid after this update to get any kernel up and running.
But I assume, you have a working serial console, don't you?
Re: Linux 3.3.2 kernel for Dockstar, GoFlex and many others

Yes the uBoot is recent. I am certain because i also tried a fresh install of wheezy with another usb stick. The install script did check the uBoot and reported an up-to-date one and did not flash a new one.

Sadly i don´t own a serial cable and can not provide any more info other than the netconsole output which stops at "Starting kernel...". What do you mean by changing the machid? I don´t even know what that is :-)

EDIT: Sorry, didn´t read the complete thread you posted. I will try the machid setting tomorrow..

EDIT 2: Did try "c11" for machid ( because of arcNumber=3089 ), did not boot. Tried "dd6", not even the rescue system from nand would boot anymore and i had to fix it via netconsole. What is the correct setting for a Goflex Net?

@wolfgangn,

when updating to wheezy just the other day, I ran into a problem I had long since forgotten: when using the same stick on different machines, it seemingly leads to the second one not "booting", when, in fact, it just does not get an IP-Address. In netconsole, it will look as if it was stuck at "Starting kernel ..." The reason is the file
/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
which is newly generated via
/lib/udev/rules.d/75-persistent-net-generator.rules

Myself, I always remove these two files and never had any problem with that.

Deleted the file, but still does not boot. I think I have to get a serial cable to see what fails...

Thank you for your reply!

Hi,
have you found kernel headers?

Thanks,

Hi again,

I got my serial cable, here is the output of a 3.8.4 kernel:

And the environment is set up to "rootfs" label:
usb_init=run usb_scan ; setenv usb_root LABEL=rootfs

What did I miss?


*** THIS IS SOLVED, I tried SHYD´s 3.9.5 kernel and it worked out of the box, I have no idea what his kernel includes/excludes, but it works :-) ***

Ben, I had the same error but continued and am now at 3.9.5 everything worked fine here

Hi, can someone post the kernel config again? The link in post #1 is not working anymore... Also, was this kernel built with any sort of patch files?

Thanks,

You can find the kernel config file in /boot directory. Should be something like this:
config-3.3.2.xx-kirkwood-xxx

Just use the link Kirkwood Downloads from the first post and you can find everything you need.

Is it safe to apply the patch file from 3.3.2 to the 3.12 kernel source and then build it with the 3.3.2 kernel configuration?

The config file in the first post is not available .
Can someone upload it again ?
Thanks in advance.
