Hi,

I was thinking about creating second stage kexec based bootloader. I have it done completely (boot from internal flash, SD card, USB and set preffered way of boot) with plans to enhance in mind (like restoring flash without restore system on microSD card, creating backups, etc.), but I fail with booting through kexec. I'm using sources 2.6.28.10 (sources of linux-image-*-araneo19).

Was anyone successful in booting through kexec?

I know that kexec utils need to be patched and I got to new kernel I think, but it hangs with white screen and watchdog kill it in a minute.

And one question a bit offtopic - does anyone found the way how to boot initrd from card? I'm not sure, what to put into boot.conf so it loads also initrd...

Thanks!
