Well, as far as this procedure being equally easy with debian....it might be. But I'm not there yet.
I've gotten through these steps without incident:
- install disk into kuro
- boot in EM mode
- copy U-Boot flash image to kuro
- flash U-Boot
- reboot (to EM mode)
- make partitions
- untar Sylver's 'improved debian' image
Now I need to install the U-Boot 2.6 kernel. From Sylver's site, I see a series of updated kernels, but they are not specifically marked as 'uImage' and I'm not sure whether they are intended for the U-Boot bootloader or not. There is a remark in his changelog that he added a uImage version a few revs back:
Debian-sarge-188.8.131.52-mh2_kurobox_hg-20060711 (kernel update only) :
U Updated to kernel 184.108.40.206 (Kurobox HG version only)
U Updated Bluetooth patch to mh2 : http://www.holtmann.org/linux/kernel/pa ... .17-mh2.gz
U Updated PWC webcam driver to pwc-v4l2-20060711-042701
+ added uImage version of kernel 220.127.116.11 for Kuro-box with U-Boot
+ USB CD/DVD drives support
+ Autofs4 module
+ Added support for +2TB drives
+ Added RAID support
But I'm still not clear whether all his kernels are u-bootable.
The u-boot flash read-me says that 'uImage should be located in /boot/uImage file on hda1', but after unpacking the 'Sylver's improved debian image' I see no /boot directory, whcih has got me wondering whether I'm barking up the wrong tree. Or possibly simply barking.
I could just create /boot and unpack Sylver's latest kernel there and hope for the best, but I'm wondering whether the kuro would ever speak to me again
Any help is greatly appreciated. - MMcK
