First Boot!

notes on the process:

Dad to buy a null modem cable and a hdmi video cable (but still need a monitor able to do hdmi).

Followed this partition scheme guideline:

Got the narcissus image build for angstrom, failed to boot!


** Unable to use mmc 0:1 for fatload **
Wrong Image Format for bootm command
ERROR: can't get kernel image!

Had rename and copy:

  1. mv /media/boot/uImage /media/boot/uImage_
  2. cp /media/root/boot/uImage-2.6.29-omap1 /media/boot/uImage

Then, boot like this:

  1. mmcinit
  2. boot
