Dear Geeks and Hackers,
I come to seek help and I am not starting new topic intentionally.
Recently, I've purchased one of the WD's doom devices a.k.a Sharespace and ever since I search for the propper way of using it.
My goal is to make it an iSCSI target and increase it's user/lab experience.
I don't feel confident playing with this little one, it is the first time I ssh to such dinosaur and i fear i may brick/fossil it.
Here are more details for the mentioned artifact (just in case ...):
CPU: ARM926EJ-Sid(wb) rev 0 (v5l)
running: Linux WDShareSpace 22.214.171.124-arm1 #47
loaded with: BusyBox v1.1.1 (2009.09.11-06:18+0000)
First I tried compiling netbsd-iscsi from but encountered an error as no acceptable C compiler is found.
I am targeting iscsitarget_126.96.36.199-1_armel.deb now, but before reaching it I have to go through the dependencies hell. It is not that bad, there are few pkg's to be installed.
I already installed libc-bin_2.11.3-4_armel.deb, gcc-4.4-base_4.4.5-8_armel.deb, but i stucked on libgcc1_4.4.5-8_armel.deb libc6_2.11.3-4_armel.deb installation. I cannot continue because of:
dpkg -i libgcc1_4.4.5-8_armel.deb libc6_2.11.3-4_armel.deb
WARNING: this version of the GNU libc requires kernel version
2.6.18 or later. Please upgrade your kernel before installing
The installation of a 2.6 kernel _could_ ask you to install a new libc
first, this is NOT a bug, and should *NOT* be reported. In that case,
please add lenny sources to your /etc/apt/sources.list and run:
apt-get install -t lenny linux-image-2.6
Then reboot into this new kernel, and proceed with your upgrade
Am I going to upgrade it to a brick or there is a real chance to do it the proper way ?
I do not know how am I going to upgrade t[quote][/quote]he kernel but I will hit the net and I'll try to find something.
Any comments, guides, notes, documents or links that you think it may help me are highly appreciated.

P.S. Instead of upgrading the kernel I guess it will be better if I just go with: http://www.cyrius.com/debian/
(kirkwood or orion ?!?).
