3.5.4.2 6000l
« on: December 02, 2006, 10:42:15 pm »
Opie works nicely on my 6000. The wireless stuff is working fine. Thanks!
I have a very useable system on my internal flash. Now, I'd like to be able to ALTBOOT to GPE as an "installed system on my 1gig SD card.

I read the ALTBOOT FAQ.

It talks about using tarballs, and mentions making an installed system--says it's like using a tarball. (not helpful at this point- no applicable tarballs, nor was I intending to loop mount a tarball )

There does not appear to be a tarball (I can't find one) of any OZ for 3.5.4.2 for the 6000.

How do I, for example, make an installed GPE 3.5.4.2 system for my 6000 on the SD card so that I can keep opie installed on internal flash and altboot to a complete GPE system on the sd?

Thanks in advance for the help.

While I'm here talking to myself, I thought I'd mention being unclear about kexec and altboot.

If I took the most recent gpe tarball I could find, a 2.4 based one, and..what..loop mounted it? untarred it? to my sd the altbooted to it, wouldn't kexec put me in an OZ/GPE/2.4 environment?  is there really any point to that? (besides proving that altboot works?)

I believe you'll find this document informative:  [a href=\"http://blog.hentges.net/?page_id=50]http://blog.hentges.net/?page_id=50[/url]

The tarballs can be used with the Avanced/Install rootfs (or whatever it was called heh) to create loop-images from scratch. These loop-images can be booted with altboot.

Altboot does not use kexec (ie: you are stuck with the kernel in flash), you'd have to hack the scripts for that to work.

If you are using 3.5.4.2-rc2 the tarballs are here:
