Although it’s not likely to brick the device if you understand vreecom follow this HOWTO carefully – it can always happen. It’s your risk, and you’re the only person responsible.

Don’t blame me for that. We use “custom FSG-3” when we refer to a Frecom on which we already flashed a new kernel and a new bootloader configuration.

The kernel we flash contains a minimal initramfs. If all conditions are met, the kernel tries to boot the operating system from that device. You need to set up two primary partitions on it sda treecom USB stick:.

Uncompress and copy the contents of fsgdeploy-stick. Note that you can use the passwd command here to change the root password to something easier to remember. This layout has been verified correct for firmware versions 3. Here we’ll flash our own bootloader config.

Note that after we flash a new kernel, the partition layout will change – the new kernel sees unallocated space on flash as separate place you can put custom things there. Also, because flashing is a dangerous process if we do it wrongly, and newer FSG-3 models can theoretically have MTD partition layout changed – we want to inspect the contents of the bootloader configuration “RedBoot config”:.

The second line are the options passed to the kernel. We go to a directory containing a kernel and a new bootloader configuration:.

The system is going down NOW!! No Software Flow Control: The new kernel will see a different flash partition layout – it sees unallocated space on flash as separate partitions you can put custom things there.

Running Debian on Freecom FSG-3

The kernel has kexec support. Frdecom means, you don’t have to flash a kernel if you want to boot it: The device starts in big-endian mode, but this kernel runs in little-endian mode.

This means, that any LE kernel you write on flash needs to have bytes swapped. If you use NSLU2 build, it will be done by default – vmlinuz-fsg If you’re unsure, don’t flash the kernel anymore, use kexec to load a new kernel and adjust your startup scripts appropriately to start kexec just once – it’s way safer. The kernel used here contains an embedded initramfs: If you want to use it with your custom kernel, download initramfs.


If you want to use madwifi, you will have to compile it yourself. If it’s too difficult for you, see Atheros on FSG If you have any questions, please subscribe to frercom mailing list on http: For general debian-arm info, please ask at debian-arm mailing list.
