Do you still remember if ethtool works in original software with kernel 2.6.22.18 came with the plug? Thanks!

mii-tool and ethtool does not work on OpenRD, you have to use mv_eth_tool that comes with the linux source. It is under linux-2.6.22.18/tools directory. I am not sure whether it is a driver issue or hardware limitation.

mv_eth_tool is really not a replacement for ethtool or mii-tool, but it is better than nothing. User issues command with mv_eth_tool, than searches for the output in /var/log/messages. There is no document for those tools, executing mv_eth_tool without anything will show how-to. Users have to decipher the output from mv_eth_tool by themselves.

One favor from your guys with SheevaPlug, does ethtool work on SheevaPlug?

SgtPepper,

Thank you! I am going to look into it and find what can be done for OpenRD board.

I don't think the kernel image can be upgraded this way. Maybe the tatile should be "how to upgrade kernel image remotely (without physically accessing to the device)". Thanks.

Planning to use SheevaPlug in remote location, autonomous remote upgrade without human interaction become MUST. Does anyone have suggestion what the best way is?
