Usage Information

Foxconn nT330I

Note: <MD#> has to be replaced by the mediadirector number.

Preparing the core for 1st time boot of the NetBox NT330;

Prepare the core;

LAN controller Attansic requires module atl1c. Without it I have kernel panic during an attepmt to PXE boot. Way to get nettop work described in wiki page http://wiki.linuxрmce.org/index.php/Unrecognized_NIC, section Modify the media director initial ramdisk.

cd /
mkdir AR81Family
cd AR81Family
wget http://lnx.sensibile.it/files/foxconn/AR81Family-linux-v1.0.1.4.tar.gz
tar -xvf AR81Family-linux-v1.0.1.4.tar.gz

Build the atl1c kernel module

Modify .src/makefile changing "DRIVER_NAME = atl1e" to "DRIVER_NAME = atl1c";

cd src
vim Makefile

Save the file and start building;

cd ..
make
make install

You'll get some error messages but I noticed still atl1c.ko is build. atl1kc is located in ./src

cp atl1e.ko /lib/modules/2.6.xx-xx-generic/kernel/drivers/net/

In the bottom of /etc/initramfs-tools-interactor/modules add "atl1c" without quotations and save Now rebuild the initial diskless image

/usr/pluto/bin/Diskless_BuildDefaultImage.sh

MD Time

After this you can connect your MD and take it for its first boot.....

When the initial MD has been created the first boot "real" boot will fail due to the fact the MD image has no atl1c module so we have to add that;

cp /lib/modules/2.6.xx-xx-generic/kernel/drivers/net/atl1e.ko /usr/pluto/diskless/<MD#>/lib/modules/2.6.xx-xx-generic/kernel/drivers/net/ 

In the bottom of /usr/pluto/diskless/<MD#>/etc/modules add "atl1c" without quotations and save In the bottom of /usr/pluto/diskless/<MD#>/etc/initramfs-tools/modules add "atl1c" without quotations and save

Now rebuild the image;

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


Finishing off

The system will do a couple of reboots and will at the end put you into AVWizard which does not appear; but if you press "3" voila!!
