Hello,

is there somewhere a HowTo for building a own uboot and kernel for a Seagte GoFlex Net?
All HowTo i found, are very old, for old kernel versions and so on.

I build a board for my GoFlex Net with the Second Ethernet on it, MAX6695 CPU Temp-Sensor, I2C IO's, SD Card and a USB Hub.
That i can use the Second Ethernet and so, i have to build a new uboot and kernel.

Can somebody help?
Thank you

You can get a new (DENX OpenBoot) version of uboot for DockStar from the link on the page http://www.cyrius.com/debian/kirkwood/sheevaplug/uboot-upgrade.html.

You can install Debian using Martin's instructions on http://www.cyrius.com/debian/kirkwood/sheevaplug/install.html.  You need to have serial console access to the DockStar, but there are also links on that page leading to serial access instructions.

Thank you for this information, this will help me to install the new uboot and kernel.

But how can i compile the new uboot and kernel?
Because for the second Ethernet Port and for my add ons i have to compile the support for it into the kernel.

You can get Das U-Boot source from DENX, http://www.denx.de/wiki/U-Boot/WebHome.  The kernel source comes from kernel.org.  The links I listed earlier are from the Debian for ARM project, http://www.debian.org/ports/arm/.

But don't ask me how to compile a kernel.  That would be new ground for me.  I plan to install developer tools and sources on my SheevaPlug on a working MMC/SD Debian setup.  If I have any success I will post on this forum.
