Installation issues / Re: EEE Box Hanging On Boot
« on: November 13, 2008, 11:40:55 am »
Hi, i have finally managed to get some clear time and thought i would try to get this eee box that i have had for a while now working as a MD.  I followed Andrews  wiki page at  ( ( thanks to Andrew for the clear guide! )

and then

At the end of this the eee box manages to perform the initial boot and performs Running etc and creates the new md image etc.  This all goes great but then when the md reboots i get a kernel panic.

[ 32.105997 ] NET: Registered protocol family 17
ipconfig: eth0: SIOCGIFINDEX: No such device
ipconfig: no devices to configure
/init: .: 1: Cant open /tmp/net-eth0.conf
{ 32.128700] Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

Given that the initial boot runs ok, i figured i must have done something wrong when following the Unrecognized_NIC instructions for the MD part as described at the bottom of that page....however i have now redone that process at least 10 times and get the same result.

I have followed the instructions to the button....well at least that i can see...

Anyone got any  ideas ?

Thank you

Hi Andrew, thanks for the link and that very helpful advice.  It will become very useful to a lot of new eee box owners!

However i seem to have messed up my core boot image for new MDs and cant get the eee box to boot now at all!
I followed the advice given in your first reply about adding an unrecognised NIC, however stupidly i didnt read the full page before acting on the instructions ( i.e. i didnt notice the caveat at the end of the page )  My core is an AMD64 and as i changed the initial boot image the eee box now gives the error

"Your CPU does not support long mode.  Please use a 32bit distribution"

I presume i have changed the boot image to 64bit mode....and yes i know i should have read the page in full but i was too keen to get this eee box bad.

Anyone any ideas how to restore it to the original ? Without having to reinstall my whole core...

Hi, been playing around with lmce for a while now and think its a great system.  I got my hands on an eee box and thought i would give it a try...however it hangs on bootup.  Seems to be a problem with the inbuilt memory card reader.  Below is a link to screenshot of the output....once it hits this point it just stops, keyboard input still works etc but the boot process wont proceed any further.


If anyone has any ideas on what the issue might be i would be very keen to hear them
The eee box is a great piece of work and it would be great to get them working as an MD!
