I'ts been a while since I last fiddled with the seagate dockstar ... I puklled it back out wanting to involve it on media streaming via DLNA.
I fiddled with a slackwarearm 14 miniroot image on a versatile emulated machine untill I thaught I had all the bits and pieces needed to boot from the dockstar ... but when I put the image on usb stick this is all I'm getting:

Loading file "/boot/uImage" from usb device 0:1 (usbda1)
2343448 bytes read
Loading file "/boot/uinitrd" from usb device 0:1 (usbda1)
7314743 bytes read
USB device 0:1 is bootable
## Booting kernel from Legacy Image at 00800000 ...
   Image Name:   Linux-3.8.7-kirkwood
   Image Type:   ARM Linux Kernel Image (uncompressed)
   Data Size:    2343384 Bytes = 2.2 MiB
   Load Address: 00008000
   Entry Point:  00008000
   Verifying Checksum ... OK
## Loading init Ramdisk from Legacy Image at 01100000 ...
   Image Name:   Slackware ARM for kirkwood platf
   Image Type:   ARM Linux RAMDisk Image (gzip compressed)
   Data Size:    7314679 Bytes = 7 MiB
   Load Address: 00000000
   Entry Point:  00000000
   Verifying Checksum ... OK
   Loading Kernel Image ... OK

Starting kernel ...

Uncompressing Linux... done, booting the kernel.

And that's it ... nothing more on the serial console and nothing on the network .... actually it does not even appear to mount the root filesystem as the last mount seems to be coherent with the last time I mounted it on my PC
Do I need to recompile the kernel (I'm using the kirkwood uImage) or is there something else wrong ?
