Jus like the post says is it possible to compile and configure an altboot for stock rom, something to choose which runlevel, like goto emergency linux boot mode etc... qt/noqt, and perhaps point it at say a pdaxrom install? or even a debian "pws" install?

Altboot is shell code, no need to compile smile.gif

Just like you'd extract any modern .ipk:

ar -x $IPK (IIRC)
tar -xzf data.tar.gz

There are older ipk files which do not use ar for the top-layer compression, but tar+gzip.
However, OZ only uses the newer ar archives. I dunno what the other distros use.

altboot is very flexible and could be made to work on any distro that installs the busybox tools with a bit of efford.

If you intend to do so, patches are of course very welcome.

ipkg has been using the .deb compatible for some years now smile.gif

and yes this is my intention....but we shall see how successful I am. Hoping to be able to boot pdaxrom(the 3000 version) and console(at least), Coredump, any chance in describing the boot process and how altboot interacts with that?
