nontrivial
OK, I've been trying a while now to get multiboot working with Zubuntu and Angstrom without success. Zubuntu works like a champ so I thought getting Angstrom to work would be easy. I have tried various Angstrom tarballs from http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/unsta...utobuild/akita/ (x11-image-akita.tar.gz even comes with the command line file). However, whatever I try it can't mount the root partition (/dev/mtdblk0p2) but then it helpfully suggests that partition is available should I wish to specify it as a boot option.

So what am I missing? Does anybody have any ideas or can report success? Should I maybe try specifying ext2 instead of ext3?

I bet you have formatted the Angstrom as ext3...
However ext3 is not built in the kernel so it is not available at boot time.

Format the partitions as ext2 and give it a go.

ext3 was the reason it took me 2-3 goes to get Angstrom to boot also. Its easy to do and unfortunatly the documentation doesn't cater for mortals......
