Hi how do I setup cack on a partitioned SD card? Zubuntu is running on the 1st partition.

This is how I configured my C3100.

I installed cacko normally to the NAND.

I installed the patch avail here to remove the need for the part hard drive partitions:

http://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?s=&...st&p=176430

Then I created a couple of partitions on an SD card, one to hold the Zubuntu OS and one to point to the install of cacko on the NAND.

All I did to get cacko working is in the /boot partition on the sd card was place the zImage file and the kerel-cmdline containing the text below

console=ttyS0 root=/dev/mtdblock2 mtdparts=sharpsl-nand:7168k@0k(smf),32768k@7168k(root),-(home) jffs2_orphaned_inodes=delete EQUIPMENT=0 LOGOLANG=1 DEFYEAR=2006 LOGO=1 LAUNCH=q


what this does is load the zImage file from SD then loads the rest of cacko from the internal memory.

Thanks it worked. One more question. I have debian installed on the hard drive. What should the kernel-cmdline file contain to boot debian successfully? Thanks

Tks. It works for me also. I can now multiboot Zubuntu/Andromeda Debian/Android 0.9/Angstrom and finally, Cacko! Ha Ha tongue.gif

In case anyone need, here is the kernel I used:

I just copy the one from Zubuntu and Debian boots just fine.

What does mean " and one to point to the install of cacko on the NAND. " ?
Because i've only create on the SD card 2 partitions, one with Zubuntu and one empty named cacko with etx3 as filesystem.

thanks.

The 'real' cacko system is indeed on NAND. We only need a small partition on SD/CF to hold the cacko/sharp kernel, distro description and boot parameters (which tell the boot loader to boot the 'real' cacko on NAND).

Can anyone tell me how these lines would change for a C1000? I would like to run Cacko off the main memory and try other OSs off my SD card.

console=ttyS0 root=/dev/mtdblock2 mtdparts=sharpsl-nand:7168k@0k(smf),32768k@7168k(root),-(home) jffs2_orphaned_inodes=delete EQUIPMENT=0 LOGOLANG=1 DEFYEAR=2006 LOGO=1 LAUNCH=q

The help is appreciated.

Same. It works for both of my C1000 (booting Sharp ROM) & C3100 (booting Cacko).

Three files.

image.nfo (text file containing only a name of the distro)
zImage (kernel image. Take a look at post #4)
kernel-cmdline (kernel boot parameter. The heart of this entire thread!)

Don't forget to do the patch mentioned in post #2.

I'm having the stuck on the blue "loading cacko and qtopia screen. Any suggestions? D&M nand utils of some kind reflash cacko? I'd like to get this going, mostly for eviljazz's audio updates.

Zubuntu (jaunty) is running great, though.

Don't know which Cacko kernal you are using (in Cacko partition of SD), but I was not able to get past the "loading Cacko..." screen using eviljazz's kernals.

I was able to load Qtopia using the kernal link above (post # 4 by Fatty).
Although it let me boot into Cacko, I then had the problem of never being able to fully suspend in Cacko (my screen would go blank but backlight remained on). I posted not too long ago to see if anyone else experienced this, but I seem to be the only one. Perhapes you will have more success!

good luck!
