Note: <MD#> has to be replaced by the mediadirector number.
Note: below is based on having only one connection to TV being HDMI
Prepare the core;
The LAN controller Attansic requires module atl1c. Without it I have kernel panic during an attempt to PXE boot. Way to get the nT330i to work is also described in wiki page http://wiki.linuxmce.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-v126.96.36.199.tar.gz tar -xvf AR81Family-linux-v188.8.131.52.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 atl1c.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/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 (blue ubuntu bar stops moving) due to the fact the MD image has no atl1c module so we have to add that;
cp /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/net/atl1c.ko /usr/pluto/diskless/<MD#>/lib/modules/`uname -r`/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
Note: do not forget that if you recreate this MD you have to do the above ("MD Time") again before it will fully start.
The system will do a couple of reboots and will at the end put you into AVWizard which does not appear (and do not forget; give it some time). You can check if AVWizard is up by logging in to the MD and run "top". AVWizard should be in the list.
Tip 1) if you press "3" in AVWizard (HDMI2) and WAIT!!! -> voila!!
Tip 2) HDMI sound? In alsamixer unmuted input IEC958 by pressing "m" if selected.
