Default Bug#480310: armel NSLU2 fails to boot with 2.6.25

Package: linux-image-2.6.25-1-ixp4xx
Version: 2.6.25-1

After the usual initial lightshow, the NSLU2 sits there with only the
Ethernet LED illuminated. I have initramfs-tools 0.92a and the initrd
is 1.4MB, so I think that should be mustard. I'm running armel. I have
no serial console, so I guess I can't be much help with debugging.

I just tried (on arm) and it works for me. CCing debian-arm. Anyone
else seeing problems with 2.6.25?

Paul, can you check in /var/log on your hard drive to see if there's
anything useful?

Nothing, I'm afraid; all 2.6.24. There was no disk activity when I
restarted after installing 2.6.25.

Judging by /usr/share/doc/nslu2-utils/README.Debian it didn't even get
as far as starting the initramfs.

hmm, I'm not sure.

Do you know how to go back to 2.6.24 for now?

Yep, no worries there. I backed up the flash beforehand and upslugged
my way home.

Yes, I can confirm this bug on armel. Thanks Martin fo CCing debian-arm.
In order to reproduce this, I installed 2.6.25-1-ixp4xx_2.6.25-1_armel
onto my otherwise complete lenny/armel slug. Since then it fails to boot.

My slug does have a serial port, and for debugging purposes I will try
to find something to attach to it today, and then send you the console
output. Someone forgot to equip my ThinkPad with an RS232 ;-)

@Riku: flash-kernel only sounds scary if you don't have a
/proc/mtdblock* backup ;-)

cheers

Kevin
