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!

Thanks for the hint -- but the question remains: Are logical partitions supported by the current version and It's a bug that kexecboot does not find the logical parititons on my SD card or are logical partitions not yet supported? If it's not supprted I'll make an entry in the whish list.

regards

Bernd

The current release supports only 4 mmc peripherals (last is/dev/mmcblk0p3). That's why only 3 partitions are seen.
The new release will fix this too (tested personally).

For /dev/hda, 20 devices are already defined (last is /dev/hda19).

Hope this clears the thing a bit...

Cheers
