Does anybody know how i can tweak the debian installer to install uImage to SDB2 instead of SDA2? Or how i could initiate this from the rescue console?

Thanks for any comments

I checked printenv and debian installation for both the SD card used for installation is listed in SDB. So SDA is obviously wrong. Does anybody know how i can fix this? Or does the debian installation only support the installation to the dreamplug microSD which would be SDA?

Thanks for any hints

Hi,

my dreamplug is a 003-DS2001 and i dared to upgrade my self installed Debian System (http://blog.davideaves.com/archives/2011/03/21/installing_debian_gnulinux_6_0_1_squeeze_on_the_dreamplug/). As the uImage hasn't been upgraded as well the whole system wasn't useable anymore. I started from the beginning in order to have a debian system which generates uImage for itself --> Upgrades will be possible.

1. Upgrading uBoot worked, takes some time, uBoot start up configuration needs to be altered :               http://www.cyrius.com/debian/kirkwood/sheevaplug/uboot-upgrade/ 
2. Installing Debian still ongoing (posted here in the forum:        http://www.cyrius.com/debian/kirkwood/sheevaplug/install/

Question 1: I doubt that! Did you try the images of NewIT already? http://downloadsnewit.co.uk/SD-images/Dreamplug/NewIT-Dreamplug-v0901-v1001-multibootSD-Wheezy/

Question 2: The images of NewIT should work. Can't test myself asi don't want to touch uBoot script again ;-)  Still trying to install Debian Wheezy...

Hope that helps...

Enclosed is a snippet of the /var/log/installer/syslog related to uImage:

The only error seems to be that the system can't find an ext2 filesystem on /dev/sda1...
Does anybody has an idea why?

Thanks in advance for any hint

Hallo,

i followed Cyrius Guide for Debian installation on dreamplug:

http://www.cyrius.com/debian/kirkwood/sheevaplug/install/

I have used an USB-stick to provide installation uImage and uInitrd in order to install debian to an SD card. A /boot ext2 partition has been created but remains empty after finishing installation. I would expect the new generated uImage and uInitrd to be copied there... At least that is implied in the guide.

Is there any log file which i could check for a root cause?

Thanks in advance

kemrit

This is my latest script for building my cross-compilers.
When it finishes it will create CrossArm-* which you can extract
in the root directory...that will place the cross compiler in
/opt/cross/armv*.

It's not happy on Debian 7 x64:

Hey guys.

my repo (crichton.homelinux.org) turned dark about a month ago due to the !#$% policy changes of dyndns.

I changed my hostname to crichton.supercomputerrobot.com (from the hostname pool afraid.org). From what I can make out, this one is more reliable than dyndns.org; so I hope that it will remain up....

Code:
deb-src http://crichton.supercomputerrobot.com/debian {lenny|squeeze|wheezy} main contrib non-free

Finally, after much swearing, cussing and almost losing the will to live, I have repaired my development Sheevaplug (new eSata disk drive) and am now in a position to start compiling a kernel natively. I will look at the above config elements tomorrow time permitting and see what is what. It really didn't help repairs with no console output. I also need to mirror disks so a SATA multiplexor to create a RAID array would be nice.

I think you are on the point of cracking the problem. Hopefully someone will confirm the cure!  Cheesy

If someone can point me to a suitable cross-compiling toolchain for an Intel x86_64 host, I'm happy to try building some kernels to find out what change makes the difference.

I have the while thing set up for my Plug by using qemu in a VirtualBox host running Debian (which is all on my Linux Mint workstation, so I can run with multiple cores, and lots of memory, if I wish...).
That's quite simple to set-up.  (I have qemu setups there for my Raspberry Pi and Asus66 also..)
