I got my hands on a nanonote at LinuxTAG (at the hackabledevices boost).
Very nice toy. Unfortunately I have way too few time currenty to really
start hacking on it.
This weekend I installed Debian Squeeze on an SD-card, by running the
Debian installer via chroot out of the openwrt system.
I then put the Kernel from
into the /boot directory of the Debian installation.
My system is up-to-date, with the 2010-06-05 firmware installed via
Now when I try to boot Debian by pressing On+M, booting fails with the
Note the screen corruption at the lower left part of the display.
I'm booting from a 4GB microSD card. This is the partition table
(according to fdisk):
Disk /dev/sdb: 3998 MB, 3998220288 bytes
43 heads, 16 sectors/track, 11350 cylinders, total 7809024 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000db20c
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdb1 8192 7618559 3805184 83 Linux
/dev/sdb3 7675904 7809023 66560 82 Linux swap / Solaris
Are there any known problems when booting with the 2010-06-05 u-boot?
What else can I try? If you want, I can make available an image file of
my sd card.
I could also file a report with your issue tracker, however, I didn't
yet find out what the correct project to file for would be.
thanks for any help
PS: if there is interest, I'm going to add a wiki page describing the
installation method. well, if i manage to finally get it work.
