U-boot for GoFlex Net

Can anyone tell me if there is a u-boot for GoFlex Net?

There is one gor GoFlex Home specifically

https://downloads.openwrt.org/releases/18.06.2/targets/kirkwood/generic/u-boot-goflexhome/u-boot.kwb

Is this supposed to work for both GoFlex Home/Net?

Do you ever look before you ask? https://openwrt.org/toh/seagate/goflexnet would be a reasonably obvious place to check, and it answers your question.

Actually yes...

I don't suppose you actually tried that did you?

If you had read and thought, it seems unlikely that you would even consider cross-flashing a different U-Boot

You're the one with the device. You've already learned how to recover a Kirkwood device.

I meant did you try clicking on this link?

Just click and tell me what it says.

I liked your earlier version of that post better, "Did you click the link?"

No, "I was told never to click a link that was given to be by someone I didn't trust." :wink:

I already have done too much by even giving you the link.

So, let's think through this, something that you would be well served by doing yourself for a change

  1. You found the link yourself, as claimed
    a. The content was there -- You would have never started the thread
    b. The content wasn't there -- Any reasonable person would have said that it was missing

So now we can be pretty sure that you never went that far.

  1. You followed the link after being spoon-fed the answer
    a. The content was there -- You would have tried to install it
    i. It worked -- you wouldn't have asked
    ii. It failed -- given your history, you would have opened another thread, rather than trying to resolve it yourself
    b. The content wasn't there

So I have no need to click that link, and you have no need to ask me to. Now, as you've already been asked

Let's see, why don't you tell me two ways that someone could get a copy of the boot loader from the information you have, and that you have a build system running.


No, I don't troll on the FreeBSD boards, but given that it is my OS of choice for many things and have been using it for over 20 years. When you see a post related to another, niche OS you use, you are likely read it. When you see a familiar name and style, it sticks in your head. Regrettably, your style has a unique signature to it, repeated thousands of times, without exaggeration

I don't mean to offend you but... 2500+ messages on a FreeBSD forum yet you haven't yet tackled password-less ssh access? That baffles me..

I'll ask again since I haven't received a clear answer. I report a problem with a broken link and rather than acknowledging that the guide does in fact have a broken link I get a patronising post about how I'm supposed to know the answer to my question.

Just to remind anyone who may have a similar query... the guide

https://openwrt.org/toh/seagate/goflexnet

mentions

Incidentally you didn't do too much by giving me the link, i had been following the link when I discovered the error.

My query was whether the u-boot for GoFlex Home could also be used for GoFlex Net since the guide seemed to point to a different, but none existant one.

I installed the one for GoFlex Home, but have no idea if I may encounter some unexpected problem at some time.

Alternative sources of u-boots have different ones for GoFlex Home and GoFlex Net. How different they are I don't know.

git log package/boot/uboot-kirkwood

diff is a useful tool as well. I guess mc as a crutch isn't helping you much.

I'm confused, AGAIN.

  • I think it would have been easier to tell the community it was a broken link, as it's unsafe to click random links on the Internet. It took 2 posts for you to communicate that.
  • You tend to always use a "try it and then tell me" approach, that's hard when most of us don't own the device
  • I advise you ask the person who made the relevant commits to OpenWrt. You (and others who are actually trolling) seem to get angry when community-based responses are given.
