Overview of last week of stuff:
- I started the week with little understanding of the Linux ARM boot process, Steve’s NSLU2 and the need to get a working Linux install on it. Tom and I spent a considerable amount of time working on getting it to work. Almost all of the problem was because for some (yet to be fully determined) reason, the kernel is passed an incorrect machine code by redboot. Whether this is because someone’s flashed the slug in the past, I don’t know. I ended the week with an understanding of the ARM MMU, linux ARM boot process and a working booting slug with functioning network adapter :-)
- I created my first RPM. :-D I spent christmas eve reading various documentation on the subject, and so have packaged my yum plugin. I’ve stuck the spec file, srpm and rpm up for public access.
