Primitive Question
« on: 22 June 2010, 07:08:33 pm »

Sorry if this is just so primitive a question.
I cant seem to connect to the net using Fedora. The box shows up in my server as 'not connected' Do I have to setup port-forwarding or something?.

I just started this game, I just got a couple of books to-day on Linux and Ubuntu. It will ake a lot of time to get ma head around all this.

By the way the other of the Linux book.Daniel J Barrett
and the one on Ubuntu is Christopher Negus and Francois Caen

Hi Rizla,

Its not a pretty story!

I am assuming you also have an openrd Ultimate.

The failure of the ethernet ports is documented (about three or four replies down this thread)

Tanmay, the openrd support person has uploaded some new uboot and kernel binaries.

It is not clear to me from the forum and the explanations whether this fixes the problems. but they may fix the internet issue.

I decided to cut my losses with the fedora kernel and install a Debian system  (I always use deb linux on my other boxes and my Sheevaplug).

I have been working with Michael Michlmayr the deb guru to get the Debian installer working with the Openrd Ultimate.  As I type this reply my  Openrd Ultimate is installing a Debian RFS and kernel on a sata hard drive installed inside the openrd.  We have one more nug to sort out, to get the installer, at the end of the installation to run flash-kernel to create a Uinitrd to boot with.

When we succeed I will add a post here.
