How to get it working.

Diskless Boot

Unrecognized NIC

The driver for the JMicron JMC26X PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller needs to be first installed, before the MD will netboot.

Open a "terminal" and type the following

$ sudo su
$ cd ~
$ wget ftp://driver.jmicron.com.tw/Ethernet/Linux/jme-1.0.6.1.rar
$ apt-get install unrar -y
$ unrar x jme-1.0.6.1.rar
$ cd jme-1.0.6.1
$ make install
$ cp jme.ko /lib/modules/2.6.27-17-generic/kernel/drivers/net/

Then it is needed to modify the file modules by adding a new line with 'jme'

$ sudo <editor-of-choice> /etc/initramfs-tools-interactor/modules
$ /usr/pluto/bin/Diskless_BuildDefaultImage.sh

Boot your MD the first time. After the MD was running the 'Diskless_Setup' and you quick reloaded the router, you have to copy the driver and adding a line with 'jme' into modules for the new created MD.

$ sudo cp /lib/modules/2.6.27-17-generic/kernel/drivers/net/jme.ko /usr/pluto/diskless/<MD#>/lib/modules/2.6.27-17-generic/kernel/drivers/net/jme.ko
$ sudo nano /usr/pluto/diskless/<MD#>/etc/modules
$ sudo nano /usr/pluto/diskless/<MD#>/etc/initramfs-tools/modules

Then in a terminal

$ cd /usr/pluto/diskless/
$ chroot <mediadirector-id>
$ depmod
$ cd /boot
$ mkinitramfs -o initrd.img-`uname -r` `uname -r`
$ exit

This will create a new initial ramdisk for the first boot of new MDs containing the jme module. Now, the first boot of the diskless MD will succeed and a new diskless media director will be created. After reboot of your MD, the setup-wizzard should appear on screen.
