Kernel load from USB or SD?
#1
We were upgrading firmware from 1.5.x to 1.6.x and the IDE hung then crashed. Restarts of the PPMAC just drop into u-boot, throwing a kernel image error. Is there a way to load this on a stick and get the kernel to restore, and where would I find an image for it. I tried the stick with PowerPmacFirmwareInstall folder with the .deb file in it, but the pmac sould not get past the kernel image not found.

Thanks for any help here.

Thanks Steve, this worked great. I used Altap Salamander to extract the uImage from the latest powerpmac.deb. The only thing that is not real clear in the procedure is the ip addresses. Some clarification in the procedure that specifies using the IP of the PPMAC and the Host (server) would be helpful, but no worries.
