When I try to boot from CF/Microdrive I get the following:

VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly on device 3:3
Freeing init memory: 88K
Warning: Unable to open initial console

Try to copy /dev from SD to microdrive, should be ok.

I have pretec marvell card and it generally works.
Have you installed firmware:

It may depend also on what kernel (modules) you use.

By the way, people reporting that detection of the NAND partitions takes extremely long during booting, try erasing or re-flashing the NAND, this solves this problem.

Thanks Cortez for all that you have done with zubuntu.  It is working well for me.

I tried re-flashing NAND (with the kexec kernel) and still get a long partition detection time.  There are several parts to the NAND.  Which would I erase if I wanted to shorten the NAND detection time?

I had the same problem with slow probing flash and solved it by installing mtd-utils_1.1.0+git-r1_arm.deb (from "Running Zubuntu from internal flash" blog post) and using command flash_eraseall /dev/mtd2 and /dev/mtd3 (default root and home partitions for Sharp ROM). I don't know if you use those partitions for anything, so take care .

Which do we need for the sharp zImage.bin?

I did that with Angstrom's updater and gnu-tar.
I have extracted modules manually before flashing.

I just fixed it. When I changed one option in the kernel, the power resume works well.

Great! Will you upload new build to you site?

But I have a problem: When I suspend the system, I cannot turn it on and I should reset the system. Does anyone have this problem? This is the critical problem.


Yes me to - resume is broken.

I updated the kernel 2.6.24. Please see the 1st post.

I am testing new kernel now, sharp bootloader version.
My marvell wi-fi card works for the first time, thanks to 2or0 and nokamoto!
The only problem I experieced for now is that tskeys eats 100% CPU after starting X. I used angstrom kernel before, so maybe some cfg files need to be tweaked for this version of kernel.
