[Angstrom-distro-users] Problem installing Angstrom on IPAQ H2210

as Romain Quidet pointed out in his post last April, there is a bug in
an init script.
There is a "bug" in the /etc/init.d/checkroot.sh script : at
boot time, as root fs is ext2, it tries to perform a chkfs,
which ask the user (Y/N) about this check... you do not see the
message and you can't type anything on an handheld before
graphical application !!
So edit this script on your SD card, you will see a section
"type", where it tests the file system (ext2/3 or else), instead
of setting yes to local variable to do the test, set it to no,
then you'll bypass the test and get a clean boot!!
This worked for me with the last two images. Haven't had a check with
the new image just appeared today. (I'm using Familiar from SD-card...)
Hope this can help you,
