step 1. Nand restore from trisoft.
step 2. Install Cacko, but don't resize the root partition.
step 3. make a folder on a sd or cf card called /boot/ contents:
zImage (kernel of your choice. I like EvilJazz's)
kernel-commandline (what should be here is all over these forums)
Image.nfo (only used if you use Cortez's kexecboot kernel, not used by Angstrom's)
Step 4. flash multiboot kernel

that's it, should work.
if you want the kernel, placed in nand, mount the root partition as rw, then move the /boot/ folder from sd to nand.

Backstory: Every time I tried to get Cacko to load, I would get a long sting of numbers (memory addresses I think) and finally a kernel panic.

Even though i resized the root partition of Cacko to 32MB, as suggested in the readme; and I had the proper config in kernel-commandline,I kept getting erros.
I noticed that even though i resized the partition, and specified a 32MB partition in the commandline, the mtd partitions were always the same.
00000000-00700000 smf
00700000-03c00000 root
03c00000-08000000 home

doing the math, i realized that the root partition above is 53MB in size. So I reflashed Cacko again for the N+1 time and this time, instead of resizing the root partition to 32MB, I set it to 53MB and then changed the kernel-commandline to reflect this. Instant success!!!

UPDATE: Everything is working again. problem appears to be a jffs2 issue. when installing packages, install only a couple at a time, then reboot. Should work just fine then. Also, i'm currently using the Angstrom Multiboot kernel for akita and it also is hardcoded for a 53MB root partition.



So now Cacko is acting weird on me. I can't PPP with BT or Connect to Wifi anymore. Plus I can't install anything. Something is up. Am going to try reflashing Cacko.

Also came across this on Yonggun's website where he says to use 53MB partition on Nand also for dual boot.

Makes me wonder if Cortez's (Omegamoon) kernel is based on, or shares something with Yonggun's (2or0).
