AKiTiO MyCloud Mini

hi,
i try to build kernel and use ArchLinuxARM-2012.02-oxnas.tar.gz on AKiTiO MyCloud Mini, get errors:
Code: Select all
libkmod: index_mm_open: open(/lib/modules/2.6.31.14_SMP_7821/modules.dep.bin, O_RDONLY|O_CLOEXEC): No such file or directory
libkmod: kmod_search_moddep: could not open moddep file '/lib/modules/2.6.31.14_SMP_7821/modules.dep.bin'

then i try ArchLinuxARM-2011.11-oxnas-rootfs.tar.gz, skip some packages,
Code: Select all
IgnorePkg = initscripts filesystem kmod mkinitcpio

after system upgrade, console messages is here.

AKiTiO MyCloud Mini use PLX NAS7821, internal pictures is here, original console messages is here, same as SilverStone DC01. AKiTiO not release source code yet, so i use DC01 source code to build kernel v2.6.31.14.

You ought to only need to IgnorePkg initscripts, but oh well. One more device to add to the tree.

thanks, i will try.
i found another NAS use PLX NAS7820 have source code, maybe can build the kernel for NAS7821:
Iomega Home Media Network Hard Drive, Cloud Edition: source
ZyXEL NSA212, Medion Life P89626/P89630: source

They are all essentially the same, and the only real difference is the # of sata ports (between 7820 & 7821) There must be some other issue with kmod, and I can't say that it is kernel related.

ok, i still use DC01 source code to build kernel.

if cross compile by ELDK 5.1 armv6 or CS 2011.09-70, kmod can not recognize modules.dep.bin, must keep module-init-tools to load modules.

i decide use base-devel to build new kernel and kernel modules on MyCloud Min. after 1 hour, upload uImage to TFTP server(ASUS RT-N16, Tomato firmware), IgnorePkg = initscripts, pacman -Syu
Code: Select all
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
filesystem: /etc/mtab exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

IgnorePkg = initscripts filesystem, upgrade again, done, reboot. kmod looks fine.
IgnorePkg = initscripts, upgrade again, same errors, filesystem upgrade fail.

You're really not going to get that much of a performance boost from it.

if say so, NAS7821(armv6k) compatible with Kirkwood(armv5te)? that's why the repository use "arm" to support ARMv5, ARMv6 and ARMv7? AKiTiO MyCloud Mini default use Fedora 12(armv5tel), the other words, NAS7821 can run Debian(armel), Gentoo(armv5tel, armv6j)?
forgive my curiosity.

let me put it this way, arm is more backwards compatible than PlayStations. ARMv5 can be run by anything higher than it. (which means our armv5te repo works pretty well)

Dandy that they use crap for default ;)
