Hi All,
I had my connex with audiostix and cfstix running for some time now. Connected via usbnet. ssh login everything was fine.Now I got a waysmall board and when testing it, my connex started to behave real strange.

As I said, in the beginning everything was fine. With audiostix and connex I could log in via usbnet.

Then I exchanged the audiostix by the waysmall, connected the waysmall to hyperterm. I saw the gumstix booting in hyperterm. After loading the ac97 module booting freezed. I was not sure whether it is a problem to load the module when the audiostix is not connected (I doubt so), so I remounted the audiostix, logged in via usbnet and commented out the ac97 module in /etc/modules.conf.

When switching back to the waysmall board and connecting via hyperterm, the board suddenly behaved strange. I reached the login prompt, but when logging in as root, lots and lots of CRC error messages rushed over the screen. This block was repeated over and over:
Node CRC b3b9b3b9 != calculated CRC c574d94c for node at 002f6ecc
Node CRC b3b9b3b9 != calculated CRC c574d94c for node at 002f6ecc
Node CRC 3464b364 != calculated CRC f0c8df17 for node at 002f6ecc
Node CRC b3b9b3b9 != calculated CRC c574d94c for node at 002f6ecc

3b9b3b9 != calculated CRC c574d94c for node at 002f6ecc
ted CRC c574d94c for node at 002f6ecc
(note the mixed up lines at the end)
 Then after some time the login came back. I tried again with username root but no password prompt came.
Then I tried connecting the usbnet. Here too, with ssh, a login prompt came, but it didnt accept my password.

After I did turn off power, the connex board seems completely dead. With either audiostix or waysmall, I dont get any signal, neither that usbnet is up, and no single character via hyperterm.

Does this sound like the board is real broken, or is it the flash being corrupted?

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Paul
