I have installed debian on my NSLU2 a while back... (June07 I guess) I am able to happily use apt-get upgrade to upgrade all but the kernel image.
I am really worried on using apt-get to upgrade the kernel. Can somebody guide me on how to upgrade the kernel. More specifically the following are my concerns. (I am referring to Installing Debian on the Linksys NSLU2 guide)
1. There is an unofficial debian image at http://www.slug-firmware.net/d-dls.php which has the IXP4xx microcode. I remember installing this on my NSLU2.
Currently I have:
uname -a: Linux vault 2.6.18-4-ixp4xx #1 Tue Mar 27 18:01:56 BST 2007 armv5tel GNU/Linux
-l | grep linux-image ii linux-image-2.6.18-4-ixp4xx 2.6.18.dfsg.1-12 Linux 2.6.18 image on IXP4xx
slug:~# apt-get upgrade Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree... Done The following packages will be upgraded: linux-image-2.6.18-4-ixp4xx 1
upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. Need to get 8851kB of archives. After unpacking 0B of additional disk space will be used. Do you want to continue [Y/n]? n Abort.
If I do a apt-get upgrade how does the proprietary IXP4xx microcode get included ?
2. I know that linux-image-2.6-ixp4xx (2.6.18+6etch2) is available, but I am really not sure why apt-get is telling me to upgrade to 2.6.18-4 only...
The recent kernel deb seems to be released the last Christmas
