To prevent problems with the changed kernel configurations for the dreambox models, I recommend flashing it anew with tomorrow's image. This will also bring the advantage of a faster booting box.

If you chose not to, you may run into the following problems if you do an online upgrade:

- Boots but no TV picture. Probably due to an old stv0299 module. Telnet works, so try "opkg remove --force-depends kernel-module-stv0299" and reboot. This will happen if you've upgraded or reflashed today already.

- Won't boot at all. Probably due to a missing "compr=none" in /etc/fstab during an upgrade. Before upgrading, edit /etc/fstab and add compr=none to the options for mounting /boot. If you didn't, you'll end up with a kernel that the bootloader cannot load. This may happen if you upgraded today.
