Debian Wheezy is not working!
« on: 07 May 2013, 05:05:51 pm »

 Hi,

I have a Mirabox since yesterday and it seems a good product to replace my old NLSU2.

As I used to do, I start to update my plug with  "apt-get update" and then "apt-get dist-upgrade". But the new Debian 7 kernel is not working on this plug so be careful with this update, the plug won't boot

I have reinstalled the default system and now it's ok (thanks to ckilmer75 for the "How To").

I hope someone will manage to compil a fully new kernel quickly (it seems to complicated for me but I will try to do).

I buy the box in order to learn Linux a little bit more and make a firewall on my network.

I’ve received a Mirabox from GlobalScale just now with Wheezy on it. If there’s a way I can copy the kernel and rootfs off it (nand read? http://elinux.org/DidjUBootFlashingPrimer#nand_read) I can make them available. I’d like to have a copy for my own backup purposes, too. It seems these things are not (yet) available for download anywhere.

Hello,

Thank for your new kernel and rootfs but I have tested your files but I dont can to use the wifi. The sd8xxx module is not activated on boot. When I have activated the module and try connect to the wifi ap I have a kernel panic. Can you use the wifi normaly ?

Thank

Josué

Hi Josue,

I realize now that this Mirabox has been delivered with a different, newer wireless module than what used to be in Miraboxes. It is the Marvell 88W8766P, the advantage being that it is dual band (=2.4Ghz + 5Ghz, first dual band plug computer on the market!!), the disadvantage being that it now sits in the PCIe slot that was empty before so can't be used for other things. The old wireless module on the mainboard has been removed, there is an empty space now where the IC was.

This hasn't been advertised on Globalscale's web site yet, I may have gotten an early model off a new production.

Therefore you can probably not run my image above without at least some modification. The source for this kernel has not (yet) been posted so you can't recompile or what, but that may not be needed as per other thread in which you also posted (https://newit.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,4036.15.html) newer mainline kernels support Mirabox too.

I was sent the 3.2.36 Mirabox kernel source: http://rapidshare.com/share/ECE7D86A7702B5EBD9BA4DDD110BF253

I had to comment out one line from crypto/ocf/Makefile (about the ep80579 driver) to make it compile.

Note that with the above source the right LAN interface, internally called egiga0, does not seem to be working. So you'll end up with only one LAN interface, the left one, and it's called eth0 (whereas it would be called eth1 if both were working). So there seems to be some subtle difference between above source and the stock kernel as delivered with newer Miraboxes.

Did you get the .config file as well ?
Is it a stock kernel source or was it patched ?
