I'm having trouble getting altboot to work with compressed cardfs files. I'm trying to use the latest Hentges release on my 5600.

Perhaps I don't fully understand how to set it up correctly, so maybe someone can point out the error(s) I'm making.

1) I extracted the bootstrap initrd.bin, zImage, and updater and copied it to a blank SD card and then flashed my Poodle.

2) I used a second empty SD formatted as ext2 and created a directory named 'boot-images'. Into that directory I copied:

I discovered by reading the /etc/alboot.func file that boot images must be named
'*-rootfs.bin', so I renamed the two files using that suffix.

4) When I boot the system, I get the altboot menu and select 3 for booting off SD.

5) It then displays a menu showing the two rootfs choices from above. I pick one (say Opie).

6) I get an error from fsck that says 'bad magic number in super-block...' and then fails.

Is it something I'm doing wrong?

I'm having a problem trying to use Altboot with the latest OZ build.

I've installed a rootfs on my SD card. When I use altboot to try to start up it seems to pivot-root onto the SD card ok, but before the Opie touch screen calibration has a chance to start, it 'notices' that a new SD card is installed and up pops a dialog asking about scanning the card for files (or something; I'm reporting this from memory, I don't have my Poodle handy).

The dialog box that comes up is not sized correctly for a 5x00 device (it is way too big to fit on the screen). In addition, it is requiring the use of the touch screen at a point before the touch screen has been calibrated.

Has anyone else seen this? Is there a way to force this to be skipped so I can get Opie running?

I tried installing OZ/Opie RC2 in the usual way and my Poodle boots up to the Opie screen that says 'press screen to continue' and then does not respond.

Has anyone else gotten RC2 to run on a Poodle?

I was careful to delete /home before installation. Is there anything else that I need to do?

I'd really like to try it out!

I don't seem to have enough space to do an ipkg upgrade on a fresh 3.5.4 install on my Poodle. Am I doing something wrong?

Is altboot available for the Poodle? Am I correct in assuming that by using altboot I can put root on SD so ipkg would not fill up /dev/mtdblock2?

Has anyone built a cardfs for Poodle yet? I see that they are available for Collie.

(sorry for so many questions)
