I removed the logo in expandedconfig, if you can see it, you're using the wrong version.

To get a shell on the Gadget Serial device through putty, you need Nspire Linux to attach a shell to /dev/ttyGS0
Yup, edit /etc/inittab and copy the line tty0::respawn... and replace respawn with askfirst and tty0 with ttyGS0.

I just got an idea from this. How about we add "-defconfig" and "-expandedconfig" to CONFIG_LOCALVERSION on the different builds so users can work out which config they're on by running uname -a?

I forgot that while searching through menuconfig.

But do we really need a small kernel?
They're only 0.2 MB in difference and they're almost the same but with more drivers.
Also, there's an option to include b43-firmware in buildroot.
Should I include it in xconfig only or in smallconfig, too?

IMHO, the defconfig should be kept minimal - basically enough to get the system to boot. That way everyone is happy - people who want the smallest working kernel doesn't have headaches working out which options can be disabled from the defconfig and people wanting more features can opt-in the ones they want.

In other news, I have a little surprise to demonstrate a potential use for the USB gadget framework.

Attached is a special kernel that acts as a mass storage device to dump the boot1 ROM - because dumping boot1 using polydumper is so mainstream :P

No initrd required, it's all included in the kernel. Just boot with cx_use_otg if you're using a CX model.

Why not everything together? CDC composite combindes storage, serial and ethernet ;)

Yes, that's the reason make *_defconfig exists. But we don't really need to provide builds, you can do more with expanded than with defconfig with only 0.2MB less free space on your device.

When did you download it? I thought I resolved this issue..
Also, your read-only '/' would be interesting, too.

probably a mistype
I think it is the most recent one, but I could be wrong. I'll try again when I get home.

Ok, I'll try to build a new image. Should be ready in about an hour.

The buildroot builds on the TI-Planet server are handled by Vogtinator :)
But there must be a difference between the build posted here and the builds on the TI-Planet server, if one works for you and the others do not.

It should work now.
At "20130112_1221 for version 2012.11-460-gec394d6" they changed the config option names for X, I forgot to
enable mouse, keyboard and fbdev again  ::)

I'm using a touchpad noncas, and I'm trying to get the USB builds to work. I'm using the kernel that I downloaded tonight and the rootfs that I downloaded tonight. I extracted the rootfs to a ext3 4GB flash drive, which I have as the only device on a USB hub. My bootscript is

kernel linux/zImage.tns
cmdline root=/dev/sda1 earlyprintk debug console=tty0 console=ttyAMA0,115200n8 rootdelay=10
boot

If anybody could help me with this I would greatly appreciate it.
