Re: Kernel 3.2 for B2/B3

Hi MouettE,

I have modified my GitHub project page for the 3.16.1 kernel, to reference your community-b3-kernel (and noted that users may wish to use your version to maintain compatibility with their Excito userland software, or if they are looking to upgrade to Wheezy).

Best,

sakaki

Re: Gentoo live USB for B3 (with Linux 3.15.9) released

Hi Gordon, the kirkwood-b3.dts device tree file cites the eth0/eth1 interfaces, so I guess that's where the phy binding comes from. Isn't eth0 (the lower MAC) the wan port on a stock/squeeze B3 as well though? Or is your point rather that using the wan port for initial login is potentially confusing...

Kernel 3.16.1 for Debian Squeeze B3 released

Hello, a few people have expressed interest in trying out the 3.16.1 (latest stable) kernel on a standard (Excito Debian squeeze) B3 . So, I have fired up crossdev once again, and built one for you. You can find it here (on GitHub). Full instructions (and warnings!) are provided on the GitHub page. ...

Re: Gentoo live USB for B3 (with Linux 3.15.9) released

Hello, just to let everyone know that v1.1.0 has now been released on GitHub . The new release has been upgraded to kernel 3.16.1 , and has a bunch of precompiled apps provided too. As before, you can run it on a standard or diskless B3, and since it is a 'live USB', it will not affect your existing...

Re: Gentoo live USB for B3 (with Linux 3.15.9) released

Hi Gordon Thanks for taking the time to look over the documentation! yes, I did think about reusing the existing /dev/sda1 as the Gentoo root (for those users who want to put Gentoo on their internal drive, rather than simply run it from the 'live USB'). However, 10G is quite tight for a Gentoo mach...

Re: Gentoo live USB for B3 (with Linux 3.15.9) released

Thank you all for your kind comments! And many thanks also to those of you who have tried out the image thus far ^-^ Based on feedback received by email (and Gordon's post), the current 'precompiled' package list for the v1.1 now stands as follows: app-admin/logrotate-3.8.7 app-admin/syslog-ng-3.4.8...

Re: Gentoo live USB for B3 (with Linux 3.15.9) released

Hi Gordon no problem - I'm happy to spin a v1.1 for those not using distcc! So, here's a strawman for the additional @world packages to include - anyone else got any strong views about something they'd like precompiled in the image? (Please add your thoughts by Wednesday 27th Aug; I'll lock off the ...

Gentoo live USB for B3 (with Linux 3.15.9) released

Hello I've just released a live-USB image of Gentoo Linux for the B3 on GitHub (please search there for "gentoo-on-b3", the board won't let me post the link directly). It uses kernel version 3.15.9 from the mainline, with the necessary code to switch off the L2 cache prepended, and the kirkwood-b3 d...
