AVM Fritz!Classic A1 card


I was a bit disappointed in AVM, since they released a half-binary-half-opensource driver for their Fritz A1 card, and it’s also a bit buggy. It needs to be patched to run with upstream 2.6.x kernels, so here is an easy-to-use download-patch-compile-and-enjoy patch for it. Since AVM did a bad job on this, and everyone ran into it, and AVM seemed to not to care about it, I do not care now about re-distributing issues, leave me alone with it.

Ah, my work with Kaloz got committed into trunk. 😛

BTW, looking at freenode/#avr32, it seems that Atmel reached its aim – to have a cheap AVR32 development for everyone who likes strange anima^Warchitectures. I’ll try to get an LCD panel – the same what the STK1000 has – to make this small board a … settopbox 😛


Yes, I’m building a port for my alphapc just to be perverse.
Yes, I was stopped with a uclibc error as follows:

Note to self: uClibc- alpha bug

No, I’m not ready with the SH4 port yet, the userland has to be fixed yet, but my kernel boots fine with the generic openwrt patches and the Landisk fixups. 🙂

10th floor test


“A machine part of an infrastructure should be able to pass “The 10th floor test”, a term first used by Steve Traugott from www.infrastructures.org which refers to the ability to take a random machine in your infrastructure , drop it from the 10th floor, and be able to restore your infrastructure to working within 5-10 minutes.”
