I'm trying to setup a loop-image opie 3.5.4.1 on my ext2-formated 1gb SD card.
Flashed 3.5.4.1 opie, then I used altboot to setup a loop-image, it installed with no problem. But while the loop-image is booting, the OZ bootsplash comes up, I do an ALT+Left to see the boot messages. Then, right after it goes "Press any key to interrupt... 5 4 3 2 1... Starting opie" it goes back to the "Press ALT+Left to see boot messages" screen and hangs. No response even from unlocking the battery cover.

I formated SD card with FAT, reinstalled loop-image from rootfs.tar.gz, same thing. The same loop-image works on my FAT-formated CF card. Direct-install on SD works likes a charm. Same results on another SD card I have. No problems at all with GPE.

So here's a summary, opie hangs on bootsplash, happens only on a opie loop-image on SD card formated with FAT or ext2.

Bad SD cards? Anyone else encountered the same problem? Please help.

Hi Kai!

First of all big cheers to the OZ crew for getting these wonderful zaurus devices closer to their real destination!
But still some miles to go...

I just got the same trouble:
OZ opie 3.5.4.1 on akita C1000 via altboot from 128MB loop image file on a 1GB SD card, ext2 formatted, rootfs installed through altboot from

Booting hangs exactly the way you described. Sometimes hard reset and rebooting may work, but yesterday I tried resetting three times, without success. I then booted into the internal system, and afterwards successfully rebooted into the SD loop image. There already seems to be a bug report related to this topic at

http://www.handhelds.org/hypermail/oe/99/9905.html


Sometimes there is some kind of message from the boot process, but it lasts quiet too short to make out any content, before changing to the black "Press ALT+Left to see boot messages" screen.

So, does anybody know how to debug these issues? Is there a way to enable more debug messages? Anyway I would like to see more kernel output instead of a splash screen.

For now, I'll try disabling the oz-bootsplash and see what's happening, as this issue is quiet annoying.

Cheers
Frank

Hi,
I've tested on my poodle with 3.5.4.X RCX and happens to me too.

I've reported http://bugs.openembedded.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1285.

Bye.

I also have this, running OZ 3.5.4.1 on a C-1000. There are at least two corresponding bug entries, #1197 and #1285. Has anyone looked into this and maybe found a fix or workaround?
