Re: Stalled Boot on NSLU2

Looking at contents of my /boot dir:

initrd.img -> initrd.img-2.6.18-4-ixp4xx
vmlinuz -> vmlinuz-2.6.18-4-ixp4xx

I would take a guess and say my kernel version is 2.6.18-4? Can I just
upload sda1-2.6.18.dfsg.1-12.bin to my upgrade mode slug?

Once again, thanks for the help.
