Let us know if you get this working. It appears that you at least get "Cacko" on the bootmenu if you can get to the blue splash screen.
Here's what I have on my SL-C3100:
I installed a fresh Cacko 1.23 full, and added some of meanie's packages to it.
Then I flashed Eviljazz's kernel, (kernel-fastfpe-cachedfb) which contains the new audio driver, latest tetsu kernel, and newer SD card driver for cards above 1GB.
Then I installed Angstrom opie to my hard drive, with kexec-tools. Using this page, I enabled Cacko to be kexec'ed from within Angstrom:http://www.linuxtogo.org/gowiki/AngstromAndCacko
Then later, I installes zubuntu to an SD card and flashed the new multiboot kernel.
I have been trying to get Cacko to show up on this menu, but have had no luck.
I can boot Angstrom or zubuntu from the menu.
I read your post above, and decided to try the cmdline that you posted. It doesn't work on my C3100
When I look in /proc/cmdline, all I see is:
This line is the same in /var/log/dmesg
I'm thinking the reason I don't have any numbers or the "other" strings in this line, is because I flashed Eviljazz's kernel to my Cacko.
Maybe, just the latest tetsu kernel would be better for this. I really need the (> 1GB SD driver)
Anyway, if I really want to boot Cacko, I can boot it through Angstrom.
If I ever get Cacko 1.23 to appear on the multiboot menu, I'm going to take a picture of it, since it seems very difficult to achieve...
Jon, I have the same kernel, but my Z is an Akita. There might be a difference between Akita and Borzoi re Cacko boot.
2GB sd card, three ext2 partitions:
I installed Zubuntu, then on the Cacko partition I created the boot directory containing Eviljazz' kernel, the kernel-cmdline in my previous post, and the .nfo file (a plain text file with the description of the distro for the boot menu). Nothing on the Pdaxrom partition yet.
My Akita still has Cacko 1.23 in NAND.
I flash Cortez' kernel & updater.
Zubuntu & Cacko show in the menu. Zubuntu runs perfectly, Cackto starts booting, gets to the blue splash screen, then nothing...
I will try with a fresh install of Cacko, and then I'll try to upgrade to Eviljazz' kernel.
I'll keep you guys posted.
