Configuration files for some services have explicit references to /mnt/HD_xx. To keep the ffp-reloaded environment compatible, you can create the mount points and add entries to /ffp/etc/fstab. Example for /mnt/HD_a2:
# mkdir -p /mnt/HD_a2 # echo '/dev/sda2 /mnt/HD_a2 ext2 defaults 0 0' >>/ffp/etc/fstab
The methodology of reloading the Linux kernel does work from the v1.05 custom firmware, FrodoII_firmware, which has telnet turned on inside the firmware.
It seems to me that it should be possible to execute the Debian chrooted installation in /mnt/HD_a2/linux by following this approach:
cd /mnt/HD_a2/ for i in `ls linux/` ; do ln -s $i done ./ffp/boot/boot.sh
Unfortunately, it doesn't work, and I don't (yet) have a serial console set up to figure out why not. Anyone who has a serial console care to try the above, and let me know what I'm doing wrong?
