Did you find any time to test my previous suggestion of booting with
the foonas-em kernel/initrd, set the environment variables and install
a full-powered Debian system? I would like to know.

What exactly is the issue that you have with the linkstation? And
which linkstation is that one?

You're welcome. Please, just keep in mind that that particular page is
mostly talking about a PowerPC-based kurobox, but some of the
information is also relevant to other embedded arches using uBoot.

Yes, I have three Kuroboxes: 2 that are PPC-based and the more
powerful one that Martin sent me. I am starting to fix things and I
hope to be able to develop things further. In particular, I want to
see why micro-evtd is not speeding up the fan (or I may not be hearing
very well).
