Nope, it now prints errors about USB not accepting address x (keeps incrementing) and spams "can't run /sbin/getty: no such file or directory". I think this problem will kill me. :banghead:
The problem probably comes from my USB stick after all, I didn't try another one.

 You can try USB OTG, in the wiki you'll find a kernel boot param which will enable it. Good luck!

Streetwalker, don't worry I had this problem a lot. I ended up giving up until I understand Linux, C, and USB concepts more in-depth.
Keep trying.

I hope that all of the initial patches which tangrs submitted to the mainline Linux kernel wll be picked up for Linux 3.11 :)
At least two of them have already been picked up by tree maintainers.

We're just waiting on three more patches:

  • Platform code
  • Platform DTBs
  • Classic irqchip driver

Everything else has been pulled into their respective maintainer trees.

So, I use the files from here:
http://tiplanet.org/nspire-linux-builds/

                       |
                       V

Kernel: expanded (Large Kernel)                     = zImage.tns
Root Filesystem: xconfig (Full buildroot image)  = initrd.tns
Linuxloader2                                               = linuxloader2.ll2.tns

                       |
                       V

Plug in usb adapter and keyboard
run linuxloader2
type in:

Code: [Select]
kernel Linux/zImage.tns
initrd Linux/initrd.tns
cmdline root=/dev/ram
boot

                        |
                        V

still freezing after two hours of waiting

You can't use the xconfig as initrd.
It won't fit in RAM, so decompressing fails.
The only buildroot image that you can use as initrd is busyboxconfig.
The other ones are intended to be untar'd onto an USB drive or similiar (NFS root :D )

So I finally fixed my problem. It was due to /etc/fstab claiming the RootFS was ext2 while it was actually ext4. After correcting this, I was able to boot properly. :D

Strange, I didn't have to change my /etc/fstab, although I'm using ext4 as well.
There were only two lines saying "can't mount as ext2, trying ext3" and "can't mount as ext3, trying ext4"..

Short answer: No
Long answer: No MMU, too little RAM, too little ROM

So I have just to type in ...

Code: [Select]
kernel Linux/zImage.tns
cmdline root=/dev/ram
boot

... or what?

And the buildroot is just a usb stick format for the TI's like NTFS for computers or what?

Nope, buildroot is the content. The filesystem the initrd has is ext4, the other ones (tar.bz2) are tar-archives.

Sorry, but at the moment I am too stupid to understand what to download, run and type in because of my school :( (4 school work's in next week)

Can you describe the way what I have to do in the way, I described what I had done please.
