I just tried to upgrade to Debian. I bought a class 6 sd card and figured I'd use that.
I was following http://www.cyrius.com/debian/kirkwood/sheevaplug/unpack.html
Looked simple enough. Upgraded uboot fine.
The only difference is I didn't want swap yet. So I didn't do a swap partition and removed it from the fstab on the sd card.
(Plan is swap and /var are on a USB disk).
I got to the point that while connected to uboot via ttyUSB0 I saw it finish decompressing kernel and then it stopped....
Now I can't do anything with the box, with or without the SD card! No ethernet connection and no ttyUSB0....
The ethernet lights seam to be flashing like something is happening, but it doesn't seam to ever get a IP address from my router (openwrt).
Is there a way to reset the uboot to factory settings? Tried powering up with reset held in.
As it looks alive, is there away to force the host machine (ubuntu) to have a ttyUSB0 that can use?
