Ok updated lenny a bit. Added some apps, console fonts, backlight control keybindings, etc. The file can be renamed to .img from tar.bz2 if you want to install to nand. If you prefer to boot from SD, just extract to your second ext3 partition. If you have the desktop running... shift+f1 - f4 change the brightness. Login is root, password is root.

Download here: http://filefactory.com/file/b509771/n/Recovery_lenny-mipsel-tmux-x11.tar.bz2

Cheers.

Wicknix you've done it again with your updated debian lenny roofs better than the last. hers another BIG FAT THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR EFFORT'S.
running from sd card at the moment going to install soon. Guess what wifi not a problem just to say i change eth1 to eth3 yep that's what worked for me edit these files.  quote from wicknix

T_Nut: /usr/share/netconfig/  
           /usr/share/netconfig/applets/   <--main connection scripts in here
           /usr/local/bin/wifi-config      <--script that calls the connection scripts

Anywhere you see eth1 change it to eth2. Cant remember which specifically to change so i listed all directories and scripts above. Best to look at them all and edit them all if need be.

So for me change eth1 to eth3
Many Thanks
Andrew

Update
I got the img to install could'nt get kernel to install.  i pressed shift, fn + f1 it ran but no install. then pressed shift,fn + ctrl same again how do you know when it has installed :-\
Many Thanks
Andrew

Once you have the system booted you can simply do this:
cat uImage > /dev/mtdblock1
This will write the 2.6 kernel to nand.
It's easiest to copy the uImage to sd card/usb stick, then mount it. Next cd to the directory you have the uImage in, then run above command. Same works for reverting back to the 2.4 kernel if you ever want to go back.

Cheers.

The master has returned, nice to see you back wicknix! :)

If udev maps your wireless device to eth3, you can also change the file /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules with the mac-address of your own wireless device. Probably easier to modify wicknix script, but I didn't like eth3 without an eth2 being present on my system :P

Now, let's install some stuff :)

Cplay is just a front end to various audio players. You are probably missing madplay (the actual mp3 player program).

You'll also need the esd sound packages from etch in order for sound to work.

Cheers.
