I have not yet been able to use my NAS326 to verify the envs changes in the updated instruction.

However, I've updated the 1st post to clarify that if it is the 1st time installation, then users should go ahead with the existing instruction.

Zyxel NAS326 Installation
Updated 20 Aug 2019

I'm in the process of updating the installation instruction for this box to boot with kernel linux-5.2.9-mvebu-tld-1 or later. For 1st time installation, please use the instruction below. Or wait until I have a chance to use my NAS326 to verify the new installation steps (there are only some envs changed as described here).

NAS326 Upgrade to kernel linux-5.2.9-mvebu-tld-1 or later version

The instruction below is to be executed after logged into Debian. At the time of this writing, the latest kernel is linux-5.3.5-mvebu-tld-1.

1. Install kernel

Please see the kernel upgrade instruction in the main MVEBU kernel release thread:

Scroll down to section

Updated 12 Oct 2019:

Kernel linux-5.3.5-mvebu-tld-1 package has been uploaded.

After installing kernel linux-5.3.5-mvebu-tld-1, immediately follow Step 2 below to modify u-boot envs.


2. Modify u-boot envs

If you have serial console connected, the envs change below can be executed at serial console prompt using setenv, too. As a matter of fact, testing these modification using serial console is recommended (to avoid committing the changes until you can boot successfully).

2.a. USB rootfs

fw_setenv usb_bootcmd 'echo Booting from USB ...; setenv fdt_skip_update yes; run usb_init; ext2load usb 0:1 $load_image_addr /boot/uImage; ext2load usb 0:1 $load_initrd_addr /boot/uInitrd; run usb_set_bootargs; bootm $load_image_addr $load_initrd_addr'

2.b. HDD rootfs

TBD


3. Done

Reboot the box. If you have serial console, observe the boot progress and save the bootlog for future reference or troubleshooting.

After you've done the u-boot env change in step 2a, there will be no need to do it again in future kernel upgrade.

What about the performance of OS Debian compared to the default OS on nas326?
