00:00.13tbmSnide: and you're happy so far?
00:00.42SnideOh, yea, I couldn't be happier with it
00:00.54SnideIt does everything I could ever need :-P
00:01.15SnideThe only question I have about it is, if it boots the kernel from /boot/vmlinuz
00:01.50*** join/#nslu2-linux malfimalfi (
00:01.51SnideI have to make a module and hopefully I will be able to get my atmel based Wifi card working
00:02.23tbmSnide: no, it boots from the kernel in flash; i still need to supply a tool so you can flash the kernel after upgrading the .deb
00:02.49SnideWell, upslug2 should be able to do that right?
00:02.52tbmSnide: is that an OSS driver, i.e part of 2.6?  or outside/proprietary?
00:02.53tbmSnide: yeah
00:03.00tbmbut there'll be a nicer way
00:03.02Snidetbm, yes
00:03.36SnideThe problem is, I couldn't get the wifi card working on my desktop. I think it may only work in the 2.4 tree.
00:04.11tbmSnide: but the code is there in 2.6?  if so, that's a bug and should be reported and fixed
00:04.39SnideThe code is there for PCI based... this is a USB
00:05.05tbmso usb is supported in 2.4 but 2.6 isn't?  That sounds weird
00:05.31SnideEither that or its a difference in the vanilla 2.4 config and the 2.6 verison I compiled by hand
00:05.37Snidei.e ohci or the otherone
00:06.36tbmyou could install a debian^Wvendor kernel on your i386 and test with that
00:07.19SnideYea, but the i386 is slackware
00:08.00tbmah, okay
00:08.15tbmwell, anyway back to the original point...
00:10.47SnideWell, I hope my room mate turned the slug off, because it was turned off when I got back from work.
00:11.11Snideand now, after I turn it back on it doesn't boot up
00:11.25tbmoops :/
00:11.39tbmdo you have a serial cable?
00:11.52SnideUSB > Serial, but it's not set up
00:12.29tbmwell, you can either do teh telnet redboot trick or put it in upgrade moe and see if it responds
00:12.35tbmthen you know whether it is at least alive
00:12.43SnideI think its alive
00:13.13SnideYea, he tripped over the power cable
00:13.36tbmah, okay.  So AMTEL should be available as a module already.  Can you try?
00:14.03SnideYea, if I can SSH into it, but I have no route to host

00:18.02SnideHmm, that would be the first time I rebooted. I didn't think there was anything special that I had to do after it was installed

00:36.54SnideAny one know why after a accidental power down the slug will not come up?
00:37.07*** join/#nslu2-linux ByronT_ (i=byron-po@nslu2-linux/ByronT)
00:39.05ByronT-LogSnide, that's by design (unless you've modded it with one of the always-on power mods
00:40.08ByronT-Logor do you mean that you cut it off accidentally and it won't power back up at all (aka it hangs on power up now)
00:40.52ByronT-Logah, just read the log
00:41.33ByronT-Logserial modded slugs (at least with the PL-2303 cables) won't boot unless the usb side is plugged into something
00:42.28ByronT-LogI've got a mod that will allow that kind of cable to work, but even my mod is not 100 % (meaning it doesn't work with every cable or every serial-capable slug)
00:42.39SnideI don't have serial
00:42.56SnideIt hangs on power up... am about to view logs on the hard drive
00:43.17ByronT-Logat what point does it hang?
00:43.41ByronT-Logif it hangs prior to accessing the hdd, you won't see anything in any log
00:43.57SnideRight, I can't see where it hangs
00:44.10ByronT-Logdescribe the LED sequence
00:44.33SnideIts debian so there are no LED's really
00:44.41ByronT-Logthat will tell you as much as anything else (and there is a wiki page describing the boot sequence along with the led sequence)
00:45.08ByronT-Logyou haven't flashed APEX have you?
00:45.08Snidei hear the hard drive crunching after I restart, but I can't SSH in
00:45.16SnideNope, havn't done APEX
00:45.39ByronT-Logk, so it some LED sequence has to happen in Redboot at the very least
00:46.18ByronT-Login your situation, *I* would first verify that you can still access Redboot
00:46.50ByronT-Logand then if Redboot is ok - then serialize the slug ASAP
00:47.57ByronT-Logserial is just about the only way to make sure something in config hasn't been toasted (and makes troubleshooting a heck of a lot easier)
00:49.05ByronT-Logbbl, good luck Snide
00:49.52SnideI believe that Its fine since it came up for maintenance mode
00:50.09SnideI will try putting the debian-sda image back on it and see

20:03.21eddypit would be nice if when pressing the power button, the slug would power off if it was on in Debian; here it only seems to restart
20:04.09eddypis this implemented somehow differently?
20:04.12tbmpepijn: any idea of unslug does this?
20:05.38pepijntbm, eddyp: no, i run unslung for about 1 hour ;)
20:05.57pepijnrunning debian since
20:06.44pepijnbut i does restart gracefully, so i guess it is configurable
20:07.06pepijnmaybe it is actually the ca line in inittab ?
20:07.14pepijneddyp: you care to try?
20:08.13pepijnreplace the -r in /etc/inittab on the line that starts with ca: with an -h

20:10.51pepijnbeyond me why you want that, though?
20:24.27eddyptbm: unslung does this
20:25.07eddypI know, I have been using unslung for 4-5 months
20:25.22eddypit also beeps when powering on and off
20:25.43pepijnthe beeping is a kernel thing
20:26.32pepijnif you use the sda1 image (as suggested in tbm's d-i page) you won't have beeping because of the kernel being used
20:26.50pepijnif you use self-built kernel, it will beep and the leds will work too
20:26.52eddyppepijn: I have seen this
20:27.07pepijntbm: any plans on using 2.6.16 kernel for the installer ?
20:27.15tbmpepijn: sure
20:27.30eddyppepijn: when it enters unstable
20:27.38tbmpepijn: the package was uploaded today; once it's built and in the archive we'll have d-i images
