5821Re: [LinkStation_General] Stock v2.6 Kernel on a Linkstation HS : Working!
- Jan 31, 2007
I have gotten the hwclock on the Kurobox to finally work, I took your advice and rebuilt the module and suddenly, it popped up in the kernel messages
i2c /dev entries driver
rtc-rs5c372 0-0032: assuming rs5c372b
rtc-rs5c372 0-0032: rs5c372b found, 24hr, driver version 0.4
rtc-rs5c372 0-0032: rtc core: registered rtc-rs5c372 as rtc0

linkstation: disarming the AVR watchdog:
One strange thing is that I had to create a link for /dev/rtc to /dev/rtc0, which was already created on the Linkstation (perhaps from installing the original Debian OS)
So, a big thank you for all of your help.
I must admit that getting a stock kernel up an running on the Linkstation was more troublesome than on the Kurobox, because I originally patched my firmware with freelink and you need it kept on rebooting with a v2.4 kernel (as expected and documented). But it can be done, and I think it is a great leap forward!

Good. One more thing in case you haven't yet realised - you can
perfectly compile and use just 1 kernel for your LS and Kurobox. Same
configuration, same kernel and module binaries. Only bootloaders and
device-trees have to be different.
As a side note, I submitted a patch to ppc-dev ML with an extra .dts for
"slower" LS / Kurobox and extended defconfig to cover HD and HS systems.
Hope it will appear in 2.6.21.
