    What does this mean??

    Very frustrated at this point. Here is the log of the output over the serial port. I am not sure what the problem is (see the bottom where is just hangs):

    You're frustrated? How do you think I feel? You have posted the serial output, but have not mentioned the history of the problem.

    For what it's worth, it appears the system is trying to upgrade to 6.2, but it's already at 6.2.

    There really isn't a history. I start with Alpha Wolfs 62small.mfs, add my hacks. Then, after a few reboots, that problem happens.

    Here are the steps I am basically following after restoring the 62small.mfs:

    -----------------------------------------------------
    command:
    mkdir /cdrom
    mount /dev/hdd /cdrom
    cd cdrom
    dd if=vmlinux.px of=/dev/hdc3

    2) ENABLE SERIAL BASH PROMPT
    Code:
    mkdir /tivo
    mount /dev/hdc4 /tivo
    cd /tivo/etc/rc.d

    Use VI to put a new line in rc.sysinit:
    Code:
    vi rc.sysinit
    :$
    o
    /bin/bash</dev/ttyS2&>/dev/ttyS2& (just press escape at the end here to exit)
    :wq (:=exit edit mode, w=write, and q=quit)
    -----------------------------------------------------

    Should adding "upgradesoftware=false" to the bootpage fix this? i.e. bootpage -P "root=/dev/hda4 dsscon=true console=2,115200 upgradesoftware=false" /dev/hda

    Adding 'upgradesoftware=false' shouldn't have anything to do with this unless you're letting it call in. I'd suggest trying a few things:

    Search on the error - it seems vaguely familiar.

    Try removing the changes to rc.sysinit to see if that has any effect (I vaguely remember certain environment variables must be set).

    Try restoring the image again, adding only the killhdinitrd kernel and rebooting it a few times.

    Try using rc.sysinit.author to add hacks.

    Try downloading a new image and see if that has the problem.

    Thanks for the reply Bill.

    I am using rc.sysinit.author to add hacks, the only think in the rc.sysinit that I added/changed was putting in the line to enable bash prompt.

    I'll try the other things and search around for the error.

    Thanks for the help.

    Well, I figured it out; bufferHack was toasting tivoapp for some reason. I used the same bufferhack on my other 6.2 HDVR2 and no problems, so I am not sure what the deal is. If anyone wants to take a stab, the file is attached.

    You probably have your path setup to pick up a busybox echo command rather than the standard one. See this and this.
