Update on soekris box-> cf card not bootable?



  • Hi,
    I've tried an update of my soekris update from 1.2.2 to 1.2.3:
    pfSense-Embedded-Update-1.2.3-20090218-0321.tgz

    Box was unable to boot up. No kernel messages. So probably the cf card messed up.

    So I've installed pfsense (pfSense-1.2.3-20090218-0353.img.gz) the usual way.
    I've tried again the update today with :
    pfSense-Embedded-Update-1.2.3-20090222-0435.tgz
    Same behavior.
    After the update the box doesn't boot. No kernel messages or any message from the bootloader.

    Do i miss something? I've read about some update issues with embedded boxes, but unable to boot at all? 
    ???

    Thanks!



  • All of my attempts to update an Alix box via the embedded update have resulted in the box being unbootable. My hunch is it has something with temp being a md of very limited size. I could take the same image (1 GB resized 1.2.2), change the platform to pfSense from embedded, reboot, and update using a full update.
