Re: Debian on ED Mini v2

I contacted petris to thank him for his nice work and see if he could join back and see what could be done for an easy install method. EDIT: he did reply, and i'm hoping he's coming back here soon with details. EDIT2: my only reason for contacting him was to offer help for testing, and not ask for s...

Re: Debian on ED Mini v2

I haven't publish the easy method yet, because I have to know original uboot settings - I've updated uboot and changed the settings and in "easy method" I want to be 100% sure it will works. With knowledge of these settings It is possible to hardcode kernel commandline which will boot lenny from an...

Re: EDmini v2 mainline kernel support

BTW, the Flashrom i have is the following: 29LV400CBTC-70G . Will the U-Boot update work on my flash rom? Mine is also a 29LV400CB TC . I *suspect* that Albert made a mistake when he read his as 29LV400CB CT . I note that boomby also questioned Albert's reference in Albert's topic here . However I ...

Re: EDmini v2 mainline kernel support

FYI If you upgrade uboot and find out uboot is loading but somehow the kernel is not loading, refer to this thread, solution is at the end of it:

Re: EDmini v2 mainline kernel support

EDIT: nvm on the netconsole, on my Ubuntu 10.04 box i only had to modprobe it. Found info here and gonna test it tonig...

Re: EDmini v2 mainline kernel support

I can play with the box since i have a 1:1 copy of the disk and it's software on a spare disk, which also boots, so in emergency cases i can always use that disk :). What would you suggest me to do? Flash U-Boot to newer version (will CLUNC still work?) or leave it the way it is and try to install ...

Re: EDmini Verifying Checksum ... Bad Data CRC

Yes, it worked before the upgrade - see my full pre-upgrade output in this thread - after pushing the Power button... I was still using stock kernel-stock distro - with nothing changed at that point: http://forum.nas-central.org/viewtopic.php?f=146&t=1941 If you look at the timestamps of blackbird0...

Re: EDmini Verifying Checksum ... Bad Data CRC

I have the same problem, it happened after I did the uboot upgrade instructions from aribaud's website Do you mean that it worked OK until you did the upgrade and not afterwards? Was the U-Boot upgrade really the only thing you changed? @blackbird001: are you also using Albert's (aaribaud) upgrade?...

Re: Edmini does not boot - System Power off log (solved)

Feeling dumb, but better now. Issue solved. After reading yet another thread, I realized that I could play with the power button in front - it's actually the first time I notice I have to press this thing, I think i never had to, the unit would power and boot by itself AFAIK. I had to press it quite...

Edmini does not boot - System Power off log (solved)

Hi guys, I was finally able to solder a USB-serial custom cable using a DKU-5 cable using instructions from here and the Wiki. I am trying to determine why my Edmini has stopped booting - after disassembly ! I am thinking i may have shorted something. I cannot hear the hard drive when I apply power ...

Re: EDmini v2 JTAG and serial console pinout

For the record - and having confirmed with the now-reactivated imageshack link from post no 1 (for some reason it didn't work for me the other day) - pin 8 is closer to the power connector and corner of the board, while pin 1 is closer to the Marvell chip and closer to the middle of the board.

Re: EDmini v2 JTAG and serial console pinout

Hi guys, Thanks for a very valuable thread. Even though i couldn't tell from the picture on post #1, knowing the pinout of J2 and probing for 5V made me figure out where was pin1, with the future goal of soldering a serial port connector and connecting with a modified DKU-5 cable. I'm not there yet ...
