Hope this helps someone out there, Cacko 1.23 Rootfs.

Rootfs with the sharp kernel and modules from Katatrophos, and the /boot/kernel.cmdline for the zUbuntu multiboot.

With all this posted, I still have yet to get it too post from nand ... still hashing.

I'm confused.

I've spent much of the day trying to follow the instruction to get Cacko and Zubuntu working on my sl-c1000 (Akita) but I've come up against a few things I don't fully understand and some that just baffle me.

- I did a Trisoft NAND restore, that was easy.
- I resized my root partition to 53Mb and installed Cacko ROM 1.23 from Katastrophos
- I tried flashing the multiboot kernel but came a bit unstuck.
What I did was: on a FAT16 formated SD card I put the 'updater.sh' and 'zImage.bin' files as described on Omegamoon blog. I really wasn't too sure about the 'zImage.bin' file though, I ended up using the 'zImage' file from the /boot folder from the zubuntu version 2.0 root-addition archive and appending '.bin' to the file. I then followed the multiboot kernel flashing procedure.
- Perhaps it is late but when I looked at Step 4 I realised I had no idea what to do. Where do I find the Katastrophos kernel? What is the Katastrophos kernel? I fear my brain is overheating! I looked at the two Cacko root filesystems mentioned in Scottfa's first post but they look to me like identical filesystems. What are they for? How are they relevant to this process? Should I be searching for Katastrophos' kernel there?

This is all good fun, learning about all this stuff and getting more familiar with my Zaurus and linux filesystems and multiboot flashing and whatnot but I think I should sleep on it for now. With any luck someone will have read this post and given me a few pointers or hints by tomorrow.

EDIT: Slept on it, thought about it, slept on it again and then reread this thread and Omegamoon's instructions.
Why would I use the zImage file from the /boot folder??? I must have been more tired than I had realized! Later today I'll try flashing the multiboot kernel using the updater.sh and zImage.bin (sl-c1000) files provided in the "Flashing The Multiboot Kernel" section of Omegamoon's blog.
I suppose the two filesystems in Scottfa's post are there to be used if you want to run a Cacko or Sharp ROM off of an SD/CF card partition...right?
