Hi,
I was wondering if I could install pdaXrom on a partition on my SD card and boot it using the kexec rom, just like I'm doing with Zubuntu and Angstom.

Thanks,

YoG

I don't think it's possible just yet, but with the new release it might be. (Fingers crossed) laugh.gif

I have not worked with kexec or kexec boot enough to know if it will work.

pdaXrom is built with the kernel external to the rootfs. If I understand correctly kexecboot looks for the kernel located under /boot on the rootfs? (I dont know) If this is the case, then I know kexec boot will not boot a pdaXrom rootfs.

In with the new release, ubifs will be replacing jffs2 so unless kexec has been built to boot a ubifs, it probably will not work, even if the kernel was located under /boot

But I'm just going on assumptions :-), please someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Anyone ever get around to getting pdaXrom booting from SD or CF? I have the Sharp rom on my nand so it is not posible to install pdaXrom on there but I have always wanted to try it.

I believe that the person most qualified to answer that question is working on it...
