Debian installer for Buffalo LS Live (LS-CHL) and Mini (LS-WSGL)
This is an update regarding Debian support for the Linkstation Live
(LS-CHL) and the Linkstation Mini (LS-WSGL): all of the changes have
been integrated into Debian unstable and Debian installer should work
on these devices now. However, a script will be needed to install Debian
installer from the original firmware. This script for the regular
Linkstation Pro/Live needs to be adapted for LS-CHL/LS-WSGL; see
for the Pro/Live script. Hopefully you can test this script and tell
me of any changes that are needed.
You can find the installer image here:
Please only try this if you have a serial console.
For reference, the following changes were made.
kernel (#590105): LS-CHL/LS-WSGL supported in 2.6.32 in squeeze, 2.6.37
in d-i and 2.6.38 in unstable.
libdebian-installer (#612168): LS-CHL/LS-WSGL supported in squeeze and
flash-kernel (612167): LS-CHL/LS-WSGL supported in unstable but not in
oldsys-preseed (616326): same as flash-kernel.
debian-installer: generate images for LS-CHL/LS-WSGL; done in unstable
Note: I'm not planning to backport the flash-kernel/oldsys-preseed changes
to squeeze (stable).
Finally, someone needs to update the documentation on various wikis to
point to the correct images. Please put in a big fat warning that people
cannot just use the Pro/Live image when they don't have a Pro/Live.
