Yeah I use this except I set rootdelay to 10.
Note that it works perfectly if I use the BusyBox initrd as a RootFS (but it's pretty much useless).
Hopping on IRC for the panic.

The config you gave me in IRC still won't boot. Here's a build log just in case :http://pastebin.com/DkVV7Zt9

Edit : I attached the zImage.tns I built. I did this with arm-none-eabi. And my home-built bootloader works fine BTW.

The log looks fine to me, so it's time for a new toolchain :D

I'm building one (Linaro 4.7 optimized for the Nspire's architecture). :D

Well, I remade my RootFS properly and with the expanded kernel I downloaded it no longer panics (guess what, there was a partition numbering error and I was actually mounting a swap partition). But it keeps spamming it can't find /sbin/getty. D:
Also crosstool-ng is being a bitch and won't let me use the system's GMP, it keeps failing to compile an older version so I can't build my toolchain. NVM I fixed that.

The exact same problem (IIRC) two guys already had. It's No.1 of booting issues :P

That's not good at all. /sbin/getty should exist. You should be able to mount the initrd and check it.
Maybe your download is corrupted or I screwed the auto builds up.

booting stocks at <RAMDISK: bzip2 image found at block 0> and then the calc freeze.
Don't worry, it takes 1-2 minutes depending on the image size.

I checked on my computer and a bunch of stuff (including /sbin/getty) are actually symlinks to /bin/busybox which has proper permissions it looks lke. Weird. ???
And for the numbering error, it was gparted's fault because my partition was physically the second one but it was still called sdc3 on my computer. Why does it number partitions in the order you add them to queue ? <_<

crazyracer98: looks like it hung.
Streetwalker: on the _host_ computer, or in the target filesystem ? It's natural for the latter to have many symlinks to busybox, but your host computer would be in dire straits with such a configuration.

That is indeed very strange.
Could you post your exact configuration after you tried to download the newest files (bootloader, kernel and ramdisk)?

I know, thats the only reason I use YaST also for partitioning.

Lionel, I checked the contents of the USB disk from my computer.
And I use ArchLinux so no YaST. Just documentation and terminal for configuration = plenty of fun. :D

@Vogtinator
Sorry, but can someone help me, plz! I have the problem, that my TI Nspire CX CAS freeze at
Code: [Select]
r4:00000000 r3:00000000.
I run linuxloader and type in:
Code: [Select]
kernel Linux/zImage.tns
initrd Linux/initrd.tns

Do you have the most recent versions of kernel, ramdisk and bootloader?
Your bootscript should be like
Code: [Select]
kernel Linux/zImage.tns
initrd Linux/initrd.tns
cmdline root=/dev/ram
boot

Yes it is reproducible.
It says (approximately) :
devtmpfs successfully mounted
freeing 136k of memory

And then comes the spam : https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/1ldx57vta97jtkn/IMG_20130612_211555.jpg?token_hash=AAH2LmjsqZDCZQojxvsWyeN2UHDH0cxRLmtdFl6V-KiugQ&dl=1

Yeah I know it's a mini b connector but I hacked it so that the calc sees it as a mini a.
