Looking at the syslog

The ED Mini UI allows looking at the syslog, so let's see what's in there.

So that's what you get. Now we can easily see that we're running Linux version 2.6.12, for ARM, modified by LaCie, on an ARM926EJ core in a MV-88fxx81 system (same as in the Kurobox and LinkStation), actually a 88F5182 A2, featuring 64 MB SDRAM at address 0, a 16550A serial port, a Marvell gigabit ethernet port (driver is 'egiga'), a Marvell SCSI to SATA adapter, 512KB Flash at address ff800000, a TWSI I2C adapter connected to an rs5c372 RTC, and a Marvell USB slave port.

Initial rootfs is /dev/sda7, disk is partitioned as sda1 < sda5 sda6 sda7 sda8 sda9 > sda2. Log says sda5 is swap, sda7 is the initrd, and sda2 is the home.

That's it for tonight, folks. Gotta sleep. Tomorrow we'll see what the ED Mini's disk can tell.
