RedPill - the new loader for 6.2.4 - Discussion


Recommended Posts

Guys, want to update 6.2.3 with jun loader to 6.2.4 redpill. I have already build an image with igb driver, and succesfuly boot from it, but installing process can't see previous setup (( so, advice me to install DSM from scratch(( 

May I miss something during building the loader any custom steps??

You should confirm that all your HDDs are visible to the new loader. Build the image with the early telnet daemon extension so you can log into it, see the console output, and check that all your storage devices are visible.

Can you please try using the extension instead ? The link is below :

You are probably using an unsupported github release.

Official release does not build 7.0.1 yet

So without your global build parameters, no one can help you.

I have now succesfully upgraded to 7.0.1-42218 and it works great on my Gen8 Microserver with the develop branch of jumkey.

Hi,

 

Please, can you share your "global_config.json"?

Loader boots on my HP MS Gen8 but I can't find it in Assistant.

 

Thx

Have you included the tg3 driver in your build?

Are you using a PCIe NIC?

Have a look on the serial console and see what's happening.

Login in as 'root' (no password) and run 'ifconfig', do you have anything other than 'lo' listed?

If you have eth0/eth1 listed, what IP addresses do they have?

Sir,

Thanks for your replies. But I am not sure to understand :

I am trying to build the image like is writed in the TTH repo (lkm & load).

But you're talking often about the redpill toolchain by @haydibe with docker.

Is it the right and only method to build redpill ?

You can do it either way, but haydibe's docker script is much simpler and almost officially supported by TTG (as official as anything gets).

 

Use haydibe's script, you'll get the same image output at the end of it with a lot less effort.

As @WiteWulfsaid you need to include the tg3 driver in the image.

But only if you're trying to use the onboard NIC. If the onboard NIC is disabled and you're using something else (USB or PCIe) you should ensure the correct drivers for the hardware are included.

 

It's *VERY* helpful if people posting requests for assistance include a detailed breakdown of the hardware and software they're trying to use to avoid us having to ask extra questions (or make assumptions, which often turn out to be wrong).

Definitely an issue with 918+ with SAS adapters on bare metal issue.  Switched to 3615 image and it happily reads smart data.  The only outstanding issue with 3615 with SAS on bare metal is -  I do see this being spammed in scemd.log:

 

scemd[19875]: space_internal_lib.c:1403 Get value of sys_adjust_groups failed

space_disk_sys_adjust_select_create.c:600 Failed to generate new system disk list

 
Haven't spent any time to dig further but it otherwise seems happy.

This error comes out when you add the necessary driver using an extension manager and make a bootloader.

No space left in vm :)
you have to run command with clean all flag or ```docker system prune -a```

Remember It will *remove* all docker images

Actually, i'm not sure thats your problem... the custom.gz file is copied to the first partition of the boot image you are creating. When it gets too big it will not fit into the partition. Sometimes i get a compressed (lzma) custom.gz sometimes a plain cpio image.

 

Try removing unnecessary extensions and try again.
