Lastly, as I'm not quite familiar with uboot, after uboot/kernel being flashed, where is the remaining space of the flash memory going?


The remaining NAND space is for: 1) a eabi-kernel friendly pdaXrom build (if there is one); 2) an little more empty flash space for storage (if there is mtd support)

I have no idea what causes the issues of initial console and depmod. They played well in my case. I wonder if it has to do with something one has to do with the freshly installed kernel (I did this rootfs on my already working 3200 setup).

The stylus thing is tricky. As I suspect at the end of the instructions, you need to play with other options if you use non-yonggun kernels.

Thanks, jpmatrix for the feedback. Perhap it's not such a bad idea to keep the tarball polished and updated every now and then? rolleyes.gif


yesssss
what do you think is better : i make another thread (or a special entry in the wiki for the c3000) or you modify your initial first thread to add the c3000 ?


I added a note with link to this post in the first post.
It's great to know the rootfs also works for C3000.
So I suppose it can also get along with Cxx0, if the kernel is up to the job?

great!
here are my customization files after installing your rootfs :

Can someone help me ...

I got the error mentioned here:

http://www.oesf.org/index.php?title=Q18:_I...ternal_drive%3F

about the initial console error.

When I booted into emergency system, I wanted to do this:

mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/cf
cd /mnt/cf/dev
MAKEDEV console

but I could not:

first - it's already mounted as /mnt/cf as ext3 - that's ok

when I try to do ls -al /mnt/cf - it freezes without doing anything.

after this I tried

umount /mnt/cf

but I got "Device or resource busy"


Looks there isn't even /dev/hda1 ! only /dev/hda.

I'm getting this behaviour for the second time sad.gif it's happening only under emergency system. Under the initial B+D - it works ok.

Does anyone knows some way to fix this? Seems I cannot even install debian sad.gif I'm not talking about testing it ...

Step 2: Extract the rootfs tarball to the target media: tar -xjpf zaurus_eabi_rootfs_071128.tar.bz2 -C /path/to/the/target/media


I did:

tar -xjpf zaurus_eabi_rootfs_071128.tar.bz2 -C /mnt/hd/

This made me /mnt/hd/mnt/card/ directories - which I had to move to /mnt/hd/ manually - verified on desktop - the archive contains /mnt/card/ path.

yes i forgot that one too smile.gif i had to move them too

about your console problem, just try to wait a little after the message. if it doesn't work, just reboot removing the battery and try again. it worked for me.

UBOOT emergency has a bug that you mentioned. For C3x00, the internel disk (hda1) seems to be recognized as cf card, and the disk partition information disappears. Whenever I entered into the emergency mode, I repartitioned the internel disk to recover the partition information. Fortunately, all data are not destroyed.

I also got this problem.. Could you give me hint/command how to repartition the internal disk under uboot and make it works?

When I do fdisk /dev/hda
I got "Segmentation fault" unsure.gif

Exact same problem here

I extracted the rootfs and moved it to /mnt/cf but I get a kernel panic when I try to boot.

CODE
Please append a correct "root=" boot option; here are the available partitions:
b300    922000 mmcblk0
0300    6000278 hda driver: ide-disk
0301    5371600 hda1
0302 628488 hda2
Kernel Panic - not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)


Any suggestions?

EDIT: Ok, I was confused about which reboot I was on. It is throwing this kernel panic during the reboot immediately after selecting yes to install Debian in the UBOOT emergency loader.

I had this too - you can use the '--strip-components 2' option. This way tar will remove two top directory levels leaving just the root layout in the target extraction directory. That is you won't need to move everything two levels up afterwards.

So there are three issues to deal with:

1. Failure to open initial console
-- The solution is just a reboot ...


2. Failure to do things on the internal disk/CF in the uboot emergency system
-- I've changed the order of the installation steps: prepare the rootfs disk first, and then install uboot & the kernel. This is the buggy uboot. Unless someone can make a new one....


3. rootfs tarball contains /mnt/card
-- I will make a new one right away. biggrin.gif Also I will add a couple essential programs to it, such as ssh.

No, kudos go to 2or0. It's his package.
BTW I've finished uploaded a newer rootfs tarball with a few minor fixes. Those who got the previous one working don't need this. Once the link is released (thanks jpmatrix) I'll add a note to the first post.
