Thanks for the link. However, linux still freezes at the same point.

Ok..
Then try the kernel with defconfig and use the initrd provided by tangrs in the other thread.

I tried to search for "initrd" using the search tool, but could not found any (except one from you which is way too big to fit on a Clickpad^^).

Thanks, that is way better. It now asks me for the username but... I have got this error every one second or so:
"can't open /dev/ttyAMA0: no such device of address"


EDIT: Same behaviour with the expanded zImage.

Ok, you just have to edit your boot script.

Well, this is what I was using...

I have just rebooted the Nspire, and I have the error again (did not changed anything).
One again, and no problem this time...

PS: Also, if I make a mistake in the login the first time, the keyboard then acts strangely: I can't only type things such as * or /.

Edit: What the? I was logged, tried a few commands, and it asked me for the login again! (could not type it as described above).
Edit2: Reboot, same problem, typed a dummy login name, and now I just have semi random strings (like P __[ord instead of Password^^).

I think (and hope) it's not a kernel issue.
For me it works without problems (CX CAS).
Could you try http://tiplanet.org/nspire-linux-builds/initrd.tns with defconfig kernel?

OK, so, with just cmdline root=/dev/ram, it freezes as described in the first post.
With cmdline root=/dev/ram console=ttyAMA0, it also freezes, but nothing gets printed on the screen (except Tux).

With console=tty0 maybe?
ttyAMA0 is the serial port..

It gives me the same result as "cmdline root=/dev/ram".

In case it helps, the last message before freezing is:
[<c0254df0>] (kernel_init+0x0/0x2a8) from <c00094f0>] (ret_from_fork+0x14/0x24)
