Topic: Kamikaze 7.09 on NSLU2

http://www.slug-firmware.net/w-dls.php only has version 7.07 and I wanted to try 7.09 but I could not find any info on how to do this.  I did some digging and came up with the following which seems to work.  If anyone has a better approach please let me know.

1.  Download 7.07 from: http://www.slug-firmware.net/w-dls.php
2.  Download 7.09 versions of openwrt-ixp4xx-2.6-squashfs.img and openwrt-nslu2-2.6-zImage from: http://downloads.openwrt.org/kamikaze/7.09/ixp4xx-2.6/
3.  Download slugimage.pl from: https://dev.openwrt.org/browser/trunk/scripts/slugimage.pl
4.  Use slugimage.pl to extract the components of openwrt-nslu2-2.6-squashfs.bin:
./slugimage.pl -u -i openwrt-nslu2-2.6-squashfs.bin
5.  Use slugimage.pl to put things back together with the 7.09 components:
./slugimage.pl -L apex.bin -m NPE-B -k openwrt-nslu2-2.6-zImage -r rootfs:openwrt-ixp4xx-2.6-squashfs.img -p -o kamikaze709.bin
6.  Use upslug2 to flash your NSLU2 with the new bin file:
upslug2 -i kamikaze709.bin

Note: the IP address is 192.168.1.1 so if you do not have serial you will need to use a cross over cable to get into the NSLU2.

I see easier to build things from scratch. Se mine instructions at http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/OpenWrt/BuildInstructions
The main issue with 7.0{79} is nonexistent swap support.

Re: Kamikaze 7.09 on NSLU2

Isn't it a good idea to put a link to this thread on the http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/OpenWrt/HomePage?  I'm also missing a link to where to find help or report bugs related to the nslu version of openwrt.  I think the problem I'm currently stuck with will be solved with the newest version so I hope I won't need that place smile
And btw, for all the people who have been working on openwrt and hacking the slug, thanks for the great work!

EDIT: I'm working on another way to upgrade.  I'll keep my tempory notes in my wiki and get back when everything is up and running.

Re: Kamikaze 7.09 on NSLU2

./slugimage.pl -u -i openwrt-kamikaze-7.09-nslu2.bin
(i didn't understand for quite a while that this is the first action !!!, use the 7.09 version)

./slugimage.pl -L apex.bin -m NPE-B -k openwrt-nslu2-2.6-zImage -r rootfs:openwrt-ixp4xx-2.6-squashfs.img -p -o kamikaze709.bin
