Cannot boot into Debian on USB
October 19, 2012 02:32PM
I tried to boot into a system on USB. Netconsole output looked ok. But I could not ping it. I has static DHCP leease. And uboot has ipaddr= What could be the problem. Thanks

Netconsole output:

It was working fine before I tried to restore Dockstar system on mtd1 and mtd2 following http://bastel.dyndns.info/~dockstar/recover/guide/. I must have messed up something.

I didn't do anything with the mtd1 or mtd2, but I have a E02 with the same problem as your one
