Thanks primarily to a really stupid keyboard slipup, i now have a guruplug running entirely debian code (with the exception of uboot, which is running 2010.03-01266-g42f7128, compiled by Clint). The slipup was when i tried to replace uboot, i accidentally erased *all* the NAND instead of just replacing the first 1MB (corresponding to /dev/mtd0). The uboot upgrade involved fetching the file from a local TFTP server: setenv serverip 192.168.99.99 setenv ipaddr 192.168.99.55 tftp 0x6400000 guru/u-boot.kwb nand erase 0 0x100000 nand write.e 0x6400000 0x0 0x100000 But instead of "nand erase 0 0x100000", i slipped and hit enter when the command was simply "nand erase". DO NOT DO THIS IT WILL NUKE YOUR ENTIRE FLASH! heh. it's fast, though ;) so anyway, i was starting from scratch. using the new uboot, I fetched the uImage and uInitrd i'd made earlier (with MODULES=all, about 6MiB in size). Fortunately, the NIC worked fine from the initramfs shell i got dropped into. I used the shell in initramfs (and a local server) to fetch and unpack enough packages into the initramfs to pull off a stock debootstrap. I'm currently still booting the device from the kernel/initrd over tftp. I hope to followup with tbm's suggestion of the new flash-kernel to get it back to an all-local boot sometime in the next few days. At that point, i'll start looking at the wireless business again. I'm happy to answer questions if folks have them. --dkg PS Is there some reason uboot itself is not in debian? or is it, and i just don't know how to look for it?
