1  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: Updating kernels - is it as easy as sudo ./README-DREAM-UPDATE.sh 3.4.4, on: October 03, 2012, 10:08:49 PM
Have you tried "mount /dev/sda1 /boot" 
and then "sudo ./README-DREAM-UPDATE.sh 3.4.4" ?

This should put the uImage in the right spot

Good Luck

BigBear, many thanks that was exactly what I needed to know.  I've now updated to 3.4.6 without a hitch.

Hi

I'd love to get some help here.

The images on the dreamplug websites do not install uImage in /boot, they are on a separate 100MB partition. The script here creates a uImage in /boot. Does this script work with the globalscale images? If so how do I point to /boot in setenv bootargs?
If not, what image does this script work with? and is there a howto anywhere?

Images referred to above are

        echo "****************************************************************"
        echo " update your bootcmd to load dream-$KVer-uImage"
        echo " or create a link from /boot/dream-$KVer-uImage to /boot/uImage"
        echo "****************************************************************"


I created a link to /boot/uImage, but it is still booting the old kernel (3.0.4). Is there a bootarg I need to set to point to /boot/uImage

Hi

Looking to update the kernal on my DP (currently on 3.0)

Is it as easy as downloading the latest script and running it i.e.sudo ./README-DREAM-UPDATE.sh 3.4.4

It boot parameters or other configs need to be changed what are they

Thanks in advance

Hi

Dumb question maybe, but is updating the kernel as simple as downloading the script and running it or do things like boot parameters need to be changed?

thanks in advance

The version of blkis that the dreamplug install in v 1.1.0 (2003) and this does not understand btrfs volumes. Is there a way to update this? Thanks.

I've had a dreamplug for about a week and seemed to have bricked it  @@@

After each reboot the usb attached drive /dev/sdc1 was getting mounted at random mountpoints i.e. /media/usb0, /media/usb1 etc

To stop this annoying behavior I added an entry to fstab

/dev/sdc1       /mnt/disk1   ext3 defaults 0 2

Now the plug doesn't boot, and without the uart contraption there is no way to find out why. WTF !! this is unsupportable, how do they sell this??
