Unable to Reflash Slug on unslung 6.8
I was being talked through updating the Samba on my slug, and somone
mentioned updating xinetd (or whatever it is) at the same time.
So we took a detour and did that.
Rebooted, and no Telnet Access (we had set it up), and also no samba
due to the fact we hadn't configured that.
If i boot it without its unslung drive, it will come up, telnet from
the web interface and samba, then attach the drive and can access
files from it.
It was being a pain reformatting the drive, so i put it in windows,
formatted FAT32, and then back to teh slug.
It wouldnt format
Restart and it would.
I was looking at reflashing it from the upgrade mode with ugutil
(serrcomm) in windows. I have done this before 2 or 3 times
I put the slug into upgrade mode, and i am unable to connect with
the upslug tool.
I have tried 2 different network adapters on my pc, crossover and
straight through cables, different IPs, with and without my router,
but i cannot get the UgUtil to find a slug.
I have also tried it on a laptop - Same
I tried booting 3 different pc's with Knoppix - 2 wouldnt boot, 1
didnt have network card support.
I was going to install FC5 on one, but it was having none of it.
Speaking ont he IRC tonight, it was suggest it may not be in upgrade
mode... I used the command on teh slug 'dd if=/dev/zero
But now it just goes into upgrade mode (red/green flashing status
So bascially i have come to a brick wall.
Am i looking for a JTAG programmer or something to reflash this back
If so, is there anyone in the UK willing to help me out?
I suppose im actually looking for a JTAG programmer if i cant get
Redboot to work (i know it did before)
Suppose thats the job for tommorow!
Just had a play with the TCL script (That is what i used before)
But i cant get access
ping -t -w 1 192.168.0.1 gets no replys
And it wont go past this unaccessible Upgrade Mode
