Somebody in the thread at some point said:
| i am i bit at loss with the current state of avaliable updates (server
| glitches, 404, checksums instead of dates and kernel images/modules).
| - what u-boot is recommended
Tomorrow's U-Boot is recommended. Current U-Boot has 50% chance per
boot of breaking USB device for the session (including in Linux).
| - what kernel
I'm guessing one from September 2008 or so... until then just keep using
best we got which should normally be "today's".
| - how did the missing modules depencies working out and the 0b kernel
The broken packages were fixed by Graeme. What has changed though is
for ethernet over USB now you need a couple of packages recommended by
Thomas B and to run depmod before you reboot into it:
# opkg install kernel-module-g-ether kernel-module-cdc-ether
| is it safe to upgrade w/o spending half a day afterwards to get
| up and running again?
Probably no less safe than usual if you know the above.
