quick question about flashing and the filesystem
« on: September 27, 2004, 03:15:03 pm »
okay, so i want to flash to OZ, but I need to know... does zImage and initrd need to be the only two files on the cf card, or can there be other things but the two files are in /mnt/cf?

quick question about flashing and the filesystem

You have a 5500 iirc (sorry, long day).

In that case you need two files: initrd.bin and zImage (case shouldn't matter, he says ;-).

I always tend to make sure that these are the only two files in the root directory - extra directories seem to be fine, but it may make a difference if they have certain names. Off the top of my head I think that bootflag (with some or other extension) will be flashed if it exists, so don't name anything with this name.

The short answer is that to be safe, directories are fine but no other files in the root directory.
