SATA upgrade to latest oxnas - resoved

Postby dobdel11 » Thu Jan 31, 2013 7:58 pm

Hi,

I have pogo P24 with SATA boot and 1 year old system. I would like to upgrade to latest system, because pacman is claming update when try to install packages.

First I tried pacman-Syu but can't resolve libc dependencies. (as many of others :? )

Second I tried http://archlinuxarm.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=2453 but it was not for SATA booting. And nandwrite failed. teherefore I had kernel panic.

and

Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception in interrupt


Tried to recover with serial console, but failed. (2 days google-ing. :D )
At the end restored an old backup. now it works with a 1 year old system.

How can I upgrade in case I have SATA ?
Can someone make update-oxnas.tar.gz for SATA?

I would appreciate any help.

UPDATE: Try to copy Warhead update file content as SLYCAT advised http://archlinuxarm.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=2453&p=17919&hilit=sata#p17925, but kernel panic again.

Regards,
Robert

Hi,

Made a new installation : viewtopic.php?f=29&t=2146
But you must replace the file uImage.nopci or .pci in the folder uImage of the tarball oxnas_sata_boot.tgz with those found in
http://archlinuxarm.org/os/oxnas/update-oxnas.tar.gz

Make the same thing for the folder lib/modules of ArchLinuxARM-oxnas-latest.tar.gz

Dear Belga.

Thank you very much, sharing your experience.
painfully steps, but hope works...

one question before go: must delete all files under lib/modules before copy files from update..tar.gz?

regards,
Robert

Hi,

no you must rename or delete only the folder 2.6.31.6_SMP_820 in lib/modules/
and copy the contents of folder /lib:
Code: Select all
cp -aRP path_update_oxnas/lib/*  path_Alarm/lib/


is it clear ?


remark: as pogo starts on sata disk, you can only run the script in the package update_oxnas.

Hi,

clean istall works! Thank you for your advice!

The way i did:
1.0 Pogo HDD attached to my pc (sdb)
1.1 Delete all directory on my root fs (sdb2) (except my personal directories /data and /movies and /download)
2. Extarcted ArchLinuxARM-oxnas-latest.tar.gz
3. deleted /lib/modules/2.6.31.6_SMP_820 directory on sdb2
4. extracted update-oxnas.tar.gz
5. copy lib/* (in update-oxnas ) to /lib on sdb2
6. extracted oxnas_sata_boot.tgz,
7. modified the disk_create script (in my case sdb)
8. update kernel with the one is in update-oxnas (uImages/uImage.nopci) and
9. change the softlink: @uImages linking to uImages/uImage.nopci
10. changed mac addres /usr/local/mac_addr on sdb2
11. double checked disk_create script and TAKE A BREATH and run it. :lol:
12. copy /root/.ssh directory (authorized_keys) my early backup to /root to passwordless SSH.
13. sync, umount, detach from pc
14. attach to Pogo SATA
15. and reboot. serial connected to monitor. but few error minor messages only.
Works.
Now backing up and then
will start update_oxnas script.

Thanks again your help.

Hello,

that's technically even an ignorable error.
