jffs image

Mounting the jffs file as described did not work for me. Instead I did the following:

mknod /dev/mtdblock0 b 31 0 
losetup /dev/loop0 <rootfs.jffs2 file> 
echo "/dev/loop0" > /sys/module/block2mtd/parameters/block2mtd 
mount -t jffs2 /dev/mtdblock0 <mountpoint> 

This seemed to work out alright.

Feedback

I had pretty good luck with the procedure on the Qtopia on FreeRunner page using KnoppMyth 5.5 for my linux. Had to su but few problems. The only part I didn't figure out was the -C switch in the tar command. Failed every time. Worked around it.

uImage path

A problem I had was with "Installing Kernel" instructions : instead of putting uImage.bin on the first partition in /boot folder, I had to put it directly in / (without that I couldn't boot). If someone else can reproduce the problem, I will edit the article. -Xavier_OM

Same here I have to put uImage directly to / (not to /boot) -PipBoy2000
Same here too. Should I change it on the page? --Nowic 16:24, 7 August 2008 (UTC)


Partitioning & u-boot

How are you all (who have successfully booted to SD) partitioning your cards?

Also, what (if any) changes did you make to u-boot environment? I was unable to make any of my changes stick, so I couldn't add support for ext3.

Where should I report Qtopia related bugs? To docs.openmoko.org too? --Nowic 17:02, 10 August 2008 (UTC)
