Returning to my old Sheevaplug system, which I wish to use on a new venture, I am a bit out of touch.
I want to use my DIY Sata Sheevaplug with an Addonics AD5SAPM port multiplier.
Since the u-boot and kernel were very old I went to Martin's web site and followed his installing debian on Sheevaplug guide. The first thing he required was to update the u-boot, to the denx variant version U-Boot 2011.12 .
Now this new u-boot works with a single Sata drive connected to the Sheevaplug, u-boot "sees" the drive and reports it correctly, but when I connect the port multiplier, and perform an ide reset command, uboot times out after about 30sec and cannot "see" the PM. I KNOW the PM is functioning, cause it works well with my OpenRd Ultimate box
I believe there are several people who have this working, please can anyone tell me what version of uboot will work! Does it have to be a Marvell u-boot, and if so where can I D/l one from?
