No, you can boot from your flash drive directly.

If i did that, i assume the LinuxLoader script would look like this:

Code: [Select]
kernel linux/kernel.tns
cmdline root=/dev/sda
boot

Is that right?

Exactly. But the newer devicetree based kernel doesn't support USB at all, so you have to use the older kernel.
And append "rootdelay=5", as USB seems to be really slow on the nspire.

Yup, it's the "older kernel" :P

If you can't see the red and green voting buttons on the left below the post rating, I guess you need to be at least LV2 or 3.

Would it be possible to make a debian rootfs for linux on the nspire using debootstrap?

Yes, it should be. Just be sure it's for ARMv5 (ARM926ej-s) and not above.

Yes, I have put debian on a flash drive for the nspire, and I did it with debootstrap. There's a script for doing that here.

(actually I have quite a few more than this, but I don't feel like making bars for them all.)

I managed to get a debian rootfs, but now I can't seem to install the firmware-ralink package (for my wifi dongle). If I chroot into the rootfs using qemu and apt-get install firmware-ralink it doesn't work :(


EDIT: apt-get install firmware-ralink does work, but the module won't load

Well, how do you load the module? Did you compile it?

I didn't compile it, I used apt-get, and it is supposed to be automatically loaded...

Debian's kernel modules aren't compatible. It's a different kernel version, so you'll need to compile it yourself.
