I have setup an sd card with Debian (squeeze) as per the instructions at http://www.cyrius.com/debian/kirkwood/sheevaplug/install.html
. This all works fine, and I have now a good working system which I have just installed as my home gateway.
However - the boot sequence is loading images /uImage and /uInitrd from the first partition of the card. (as per instructions)
In Debian, the kernel (latest version) is kept in the this first partition (mounted as /boot ) with symlinks "vmlinuz" and "Initrd.img" pointing to the actual files. As far as I can see (from dates on the files) there is no attempt to update uImage and uInitrd.
So the question is - should I update the booting environment to load vmlinuz and Initrd.img instead of the uImage and uInitrd - and if I do, will uboot be able to cope with the symlink?
