Hi all, I got angstrom working with the loopback boot method
(2 files on the SD card, in WinCE tap on the boot executable and off
I go, as per the manual)
The manual instructs you to do an ipkg upgrade. I'm unclear about
if this works for such a loopback method.
as fr as I (think) I understand the file system is copied out of the
file into ram, and next boot again. how are things written back
in this file system ?
and another puzzle for a newbie : if a new kernel is downloaded,
can I somehow generate a new bootable executable from that ?
I cannot even find the SD card in Angstrom.
does someone have a few pointers to the boot process for embedded
systems like my ipaq, and this loopback boot concept.
sorry to bother you but i'm confused...
