immeditaly after post flash reboot, OZ hangs during the boot screen.

i performed the following steps:
1. mv updater.sh to /mnt/cf/updater.sh
2. mv opie-image-c7x0-20050411221036.rootfs.img to /mnt/cf/initrd.bin
3. mv zImage-c7x0-20050411221036.bin /mnt/cf/zImage.bin
4. reflash

the blue bar (which i assume is a progress bar) remains mostly blue with a sliver of red on left while cursor blinks in upper left corner.

any ideas?

Try without renaming the images, and if that doesn't work, use the updater from 3.5.2 (with renamed images)

Did you follow the INSTALL instructions? Which blue bar are you talking about? You are not trying to use this from diagnostics menu or are you? I recommend using the standard 'reboot while holding OK' menu.

yep, i followed the INSTALL instructions. the blue bar that appears just after the 'rebooting' message, the one with the girl picture. and yes, the reflash option i used was the OK button while hitting the on button.

hmm, tried both but unfortunately no go.

here's what i see during the flash:

screen 1:
***********************************
<sharp logo with japanese text just below it>
INIT: version 2.78 botting
modprobe: Can't locate module devinfo
INIT: entering runlevel: 5
***********************************
screen 2:
***********************************

Flash erasing...done

.......................
Rebooting
INIT: Switching to runlevel: 6
INIT: Sending processes the TERM signal
Rebooting the system....
***********************************
screen3:
***********************************
splash screen which has the picuture of the girl and "[*] OpenZaurus w/ Kernel 2.6 [*]" to the right of it with the blue bar running the length of and just below the preceeding text.
***********************************

screen3 is where it hangs. i don't see any informative messages so i can't say where it froze.

hope this helps...

note, this is after using cacko rom which instructed me to repartition the root to 27. would this have anything to do with it?

I think it's a dinosaur actually.

Possibly, you could try returning it to the original state (which is a 50-50 split I think).

If you have a serial lead, I think info comes out on ttyS0 while the Z's booting, but I may well be wrong about that.

OpenZaurus doesn't work on repartitioned ROMs and we have no plans to change that atm.

I will add a big fat warning to the release notes now!

that's a pretty looking dinosaur:

lol

Okay, so it's been changed since I tried it (or I just forgot to look).

My mistake smile.gif

ok, so i'm about to repartition the root. i don't see any way through the service menu so i guess i'll have to use the cacko updater.sh. is setting it to 64 what it was to begin with?

EDIT: gosh, nevermind. cacko's updater had 50 as the default value. thanks.
gervin23
yep, thanks lardman and Mickeyl. repartioning back to 50 did the trick.

I am having the same problem, and I am doing a flash update from oz3.5.2 and have never repartiond my Z. I've tried all the ideas in this thred about how to place the files on the flash card with no luck.

any body have any other ideas?

Hmm, I did the same stupid mistake (cacko repartitioned c860 and then installing OZ). It handgs on the screen with the woman and the progress-bar. So I tried to go back to cacko, but then I get the following error before it tries to boot the faulty OZ (and hangs again). Here's the messages I get on screen:

[...]
modprobe: can't locate module devinfo
INIT: Entering runlevel 5

[new page]
Installer Starting
cannot detect tools package on /mnt/cf
error (1)
Rebooting
[...]


So, it seems I'm stuck for now. Anybody having any pointers on how to get something installed so I can repartition before I try to install OZ 3.5.3 again?
lardman
It looks like you're using the updater.sh from cacko (hence the req for the tools package), is this what you meant to do?

If so, it would appear you've forgotten the tools package (part of the cacko flash image download iirc). If you were trying to flash OZ, then use the updater.sh from the OZ feed.

Remember that the updater.sh files are pretty much all different.

Ahh, thanks. I wanted to go back to cacko to repartition, but had a little panic and just put the zImage.bin and not the whole tools.tar on the cf-card.
