Subject: [gentoo-embedded] flash card booting
Date: Fri, 30 Sep 2005 14:06:43
1 I have put together a PC/104 system that I intend to run gentoo on
2 and I am starting to work on putting together the OS. I'm just not
3 entirely certain on the best way to boot it.
5 The CPU module has a 2M flash chip that currently boots DOS. I also
6 have a PCMCIA PC/104 module that has a bios for booting off cards
7 and a 24M flash card from an old Cisco Catalyst switch.
9 Does anyone know if the Cisco Flash card can be used to boot a linux
10 OS or should I abandon that and look for something like a PCMCIA
11 hard drive? I am attempting to keep everything solid state.
13 I have a gentoo laptop which I am using to try and format the Cisco
14 flash card using the pcmciamtd driver. It seems to recognize the card
15 but mke2fs just hangs on it.
17 Any pointers are appreciated. Thanks.
19 Regards
