    Maybe so, but a fresh start is always best, especially with something as complex as an OS. Attempting to keep support for legacy apps causing nothing but problems.

    BTW, I tried to play around with this on a 680 and only get crashes out of Cocoboot. Ah well.

    Did you remember to replace the "init=/linuxrc" with "mem=32M" in the "Command line:"?

    The 680 is NOT supported at the moment...
    it is not recognized either by cocoboot or the linux kernel...
    no way to make it work at the moment...

    Someone recompiled the kernel image for the 680 but never tested the resultant zImage I think. The note just said that it compiled.

    I'm going to retry my 650 tonight.

    whooo hoooo... opie's running on my old 650. I went to the source and got the latest angstrom(?) build for the 650 as well as cocoboot 0.4.

    I tried first using the substitution mentioned before, but that never booted... it just stopped at the 'ash' console. I tried again, letting it boot with the default parameters and got an Opie boot. Pretty neat, but still a ways to go. ...and no phone or GPRS yet..

    AngstromOPIE_t650-v01.ext2
    cocoboot.conf (from site above)
    cocoboot.prc (from site above)
    initrd-menu.gz (from site above)
    zImage.t680 (from site above)

    With the above, it boots! Have to do a warm reset first. It's cute, have to adjust the fonts first thing, most stuff doesn't really work, doesn't seem to mount the SD card for music, etc.. but it's nifty.

    I never said it was useful! ;-)

    You're right it is fun though.

    holy boot time batman! I've seen servers boot up faster then that thing.. granted it sounds like it's an alpha product. I'd be willing to try it out (non destructive) if they get it working on the 755.
    Iím a lucky man to count on both hands
    The ones I love..

    BTW, just noticed the way I listed those files out looks stupid..

    I originally had some other random files on the SD card from the other attempt I made, and originally I removed 'em down and now I realize I only installed the specific files on the site, plus the root image of course from the parent dir.

    Yes, it boots slow.. It's reading a root FS off the SD card, it's going to be slow.

    I went to try this and noticed that the zImage.t680 file and the initrd-menu.gz file are both missing from the directory where you download the Cocoboot and Cocoboot config files. Does anyone have these files who can email them to me or send me a link to somewhere else where they can be found?

    email is robertshanewilson at yahoo dot com

    Thanks.
