This page:(whcih is for a different hardware, but still a Kirkwood setup) metions:
To enable the serial console: (This is in addition to the 8250/16550 and serial console support you should generally have enabled for kirkwood.)

Device Drivers --> Character Devices --> Serial Drivers

    Serial port on Open Firmware platform bus (CONFIG_SERIAL_OF_PLATFORM)
but this isn't set on cbxbiker61's config.  Could this be the problem?

It's not happy on Debian 7 x64:

I added the missing patch, not a terribly important patch for compiling the kernel.

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

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

i followed Cyrius Guide for Debian installation on dreamplug:


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

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

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....

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
