cms2: SLC5 updated, installation fine tuned, PyChips and microHAL installed for the "daq" user, all tested and works

Install 2nd NIC on cmssun2 (old Dell computer, Ubuntu 10.04 OS). Cable to AMC13 in uTCA crate. Install IPBus test firmware from Wu. Install PyChips. Works! (I think).

Added AMC13FlashProgramming page.

Started this log. One dead NAT-MCH at Boston. 2nd NAT-MCH shipped from MN by Jeremy.

Reset I/P address to 192.168.1.11 and connect to CMS1. One can now do cms1> telnet 192.168.1.11. But, this MCH has firmware v2.0 which doesn't work with AMC13 (symptom is both red/green LEDs blink forever on AMC13 with MMC firmware V1.2).

Updating MCH firmware to V2.10 received from NAT on 9/20/11. Briefly, the procedure is:

  unzip the e-mail attachement somewhere
  copy the "bin" file to /tftpboot/mch on cms1.bu.edu
  connect to the MCH using the USB console and type "update_firmware" and follow the prompts
  type "reboot" to load the new firmware

It works! Now the AMC13 seems to be up and running with the MCH.
