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. Of course adjust the kernel version to your kernel version on the core, and make sure the kernel version of your core and MD are the same if you use chroot.

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.

Turn it off

Touchscreen

Used a keyboard to go through all of the wizards, went into KDE Desktop, installed latest Egalax drivers. Touchscreen works, but has the tendency to double tap. Ignore first event, does not work.

Needs more info

Other remarks, needed investigation

  1. Could not get a higher resolution than 640x480, need to configure videocard proper. Driver/Xorg.conf possible solution => install intel ppa drivers

sudo apt-get remove -purge nvidia* http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=9149.0

  1. Makes strange dark beep when booting
  2. As I do not use it and I was in troubleshooting modus, I disconnected the wifi, so cannot comment on it
  3. Webcam and microphone are not tested yet
