Hello ppl,

i'm trying to install Endian Firewall 3.0 on a Via Artigo 1200.

First of all, there is no IDE/AHCI/RAID option for the sata controller in bios.

After setups ends, i get the "Installation completed succesfully" and reboot.
It pops up a:

Code:
mount: error 2 mounting ext3 flags noatime
well, retrying without the option flags
mount: error 2 mounting ext3
well, retrying read-only without any flag
mount: error 2 mounting ext3
ERROR opening /dev/console!!!!: 2
switchroot: mount failed: 22
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
Rebooting in 10 seconds..

After a few tries, i was confused and in doubt the platform even supports linux, so i decided to give Ubuntu 14.04LTS a try: it worked like a charm.

After setup ends and reboot the system boots up and i could run an lspci and lsmod, here's the output.

Code:

Well good. I'll be able to build up the router/gw/firewall i want to with it. But.. between a fresh Ubuntu install and the functionalities and flexibility of Endian Firewall there are - i guess - at least 100 hours of my hard work.

I don't even know if i'll find web guis for all iptables iproute squid dansguardian clamav snort and if i'll be able to let em work alltogheather.

I'm still wondering why the instllation media should recognize the controller and let me install on the drive connected to it, while when i reboot the same driver isn't loaded anymore and thus the system won't boot.

I've found the procedure at this link: efwsupport.com/index.php?topic=1366.0

This is really what i need, fixes my same problem. BUT i don't know how to select the right module, i don't even know if there's one, and if i colud modify the installation media to add the needed driver to it.

Last resort: i was wondering if i could change the kernel included into endian before or after the installation process and what should i respect in order to get the system boot.
