Booting fails: AR6000 problem

Hi there,

after an "opkg upgrade" on 2008.8 yesterday, my Freerunner does not finish booting anymore. It prints out "Starting X-Server", and then, endless "AR6000 scan complete: 0" messages. From time and time, an "WMI event ID: 0xxxx..." is added.

What can I do do get into the system again?

Thanks, schneck

I encourage you to reflash. There was no upgrade in OM2008.8, so I wonder how opkg upgrade can fail?

I forget to mention a detail: I tried to install wifi-radar (which failed to run) and purged it later.

I had the same problem, all I had to do was reflash the kernel and it booted again.

There is little we can do right now. the X server does not start which can have many different reasons. But no log file was attached, no list of installed packages and I doubt the initial reporter has this issue unresolved.
