Hi,

the hackers at OpenEmbedded are almost ready to ship a new set of special kexec-enabled 2.6 kernels for all Zaurus machine supported:

c7x0 (SL-C7x0 - SL-C860)
akita (SL-C1000)
spitz (SL-C3xx)
tosa (SL-6xxx)
collie (SL5500)
poodle (SL5600)

These special-purpose kernels are small enough to be flashed on NAND and feature a frambefuffer graphical menu for the selection of the boot media.
Multipartitioned cards and lot of filesystems supported.
Kernel and cmdline reside now in /boot.

THIS IS THE LONG AWAITED SOLUTION FOR BOOTING DIFFERENT DISTROS FROM SD/CF

Release is scheduled for end of December. Stay tuned!

Great to see this is still being worked on. Did they do anything else besides a new GUI? Like fix the bugs that make it take 5 minutes to scan the internal flash? They should just disable the internal flash scan as it doesn't usually hold a kernel anyway.

By the way, which image do I use for a C3100? There is none for that model. I forget which one I used last time. I'm assuming spitz but not sure.
