Preparing the core for 1st time boot of the NetBox NT330;
1) 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-v188.8.131.52.tar.gz tar -xvf AR81Family-linux-v184.108.40.206.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
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;
Create directory atl1c in /usr/pluto/diskless/<MD#>/lib/modules/2.6.xx-xx-generic/kernel/drivers/net/ and copy file atl1c.ko into it.
This is what worked for me on one of the latest 8.10 snapshots
2.6.22-14-generic has to be replaced by the output from the "uname -r" command, if different. <MD#> has to be replaced by the mediadirector number.
Has to be done only once start
Download AR81Family-Linux-v220.127.116.11.tar.gz to the core In the console do this:
sudo -s <your password>
cd to the folder containing the downloaded tar.gz file tar -zxvf AR81Family-Linux-v18.104.22.168.tar.gz cd src make make install
Has to be done only once end
Has to be done for every nT330i media director start
Boot media directoren for the first time and wait for error
cp /lib/modules/2.6.22-14-generic/kernel/drivers/net/atl1e.ko /usr/pluto/diskless/<MD#>/lib/modules/2.6.22-14-generic/kernel/drivers/net/ In the bottom of /usr/pluto/diskless/<MD#>/etc/modules add "atl1e" without quotations and save
In the bottom of /usr/pluto/diskless/<MD#>/etc/initramfs-tools/modules add "atl1e" without quotations and save
cd /usr/pluto/diskless/ chroot <MD#> depmod cd /boot mkinitramfs -o initrd.img-2.6.22-14-generic 2.6.22-14-generic exit
Has to be done for every nT330i media director end
