How to create a bootable CF?
In the "Reflash from CF Howto", it says that putting a line "boot" in config.txt and iLiad will boot from CF and chroot to CF.
I am trying to replace the whole X window and GTK+ to newer version. So, booting from CF is the safest way to do the experiement. Before replacing any file in root partition, I want to make sure I can boot from CF. Still not successful. Here is my steps:
1. make a ext2 partition on CF and mount it on iLiad
2. replicate root partition to cf. "cp -a" /bin /etc /sbin (and other dir) to cf under iLiad console
3. cp config.txt to cf
4. put zImage.gz, zImage.gz.md5, initrd.gz, initrd.gz.md5 in CF/images
5. reboot just as doing reflash. I got stuck in the default screen with progress bar turned from black to white cell by cell and showing no progress any further. In logfile.txt, there is only a line: "Boot from CF:".
Any comments or advice?
