Hi, i was wondering if someone could compile a 2.6 kernel and modules for me to be used under u-boot, that looks for the sd card for root to boot instead of the internal micro drive on the 3100? I am wanting to do that the u-boot + debian thread describes, but the link for the 3100 kernel that boots off the sd card is down. I currently away from home and don't have access to build things.

Thanks
Chero

What do you want to boot ?

The "original" uboot can do it already, if you want to boot pdaX from SD or internal MD.

I was looking to boot the armel debian from the "debian+uboot" thread, i've gotten it to boot off hda1 on the microdrive, but that was after flashing a new kernel in that thread and putting the modules in the debian root on hda1.

How can I set uboot to boot debian from SD without flashing a new kernel?

Try holding "1", "2", "3" or "4" when booting.
I guess "1" is for "SD".

thanks, that does choose the rootfs!

but i have another problem now, with the default pdaxrom kernel if i do this, then it sits forever at:

freeing init memory: 80k

regardless of what i choose, any idea? this does not happen with the modified kernel from the uboot + debian thread that boots off hda1

The kernels are not compatible. As far as I know there is no kernel available (yet) that works for debian-armel and pdaXrom.

I'm only using this "triple boot" system to boot different configs of pdaXrom.
