I flashed my Collie with the Angstrom-altboot-console-image-glibc-ipk-2007.12-r19-collie-installkit.tgz after verifying the md5sum. The flash was successful, and when I reset and replaced the battery case it came up to prompt me for the altboot password, as expected.


After entering the altboot password, I get the Angstrom boot screen, and the loading bar goes to 50% and stops. It has been sitting in this state for well over an hour.

Did I miss a step here? Is there a fix? I don't know if it is related, I am an Angstrom n00b, but I hit the reset button and had a key depressed (since I could not seem to get a response when it asked to hit a key to enter the altboot menu, and it started booting from the command line. It hung on boot at the following point:

udhcpc (v1.2.1) started
udhcpc[947]: (v1.2.1) started
SIOCGIFINDEX failed!: No such device
Starting portmap daemon: portmap.

And there it stopped.

I also used Koen's (very cool) online image builder to create an image. I created an ext2 filesystem on a 2GB SD card, then tried to boot SD from the altboot menu. It loaded the locomo_spi and mmc_block modules from /lib/modules/, then gave me an error:

ERROR: insmod failed
/bin/sh: can't acess tty; job control turned off
/etc/altboot-menu $

Can someone help me get the Z back up and running?
