Linux computer that boots out of flash. www.netwinder.org
We're trying to get Linux to boot and run from ROM in a diskless
system. It will be a closed, non-upgradable system with modem,
soundcard. Needs X-window support and a few x-applications.
There seem to be several issues:
1. modify the boot sequence.
2. what to do with the file system.
3. what can and can't run in ROM (ie needs to be writable). We have
some flash in the system as well.
4. trimming the OS (we have a max of 8MB to play with.
If anyone has experience or ideas about any of these problems, please
reply. We're just starting and could use any suggestions.
Thanks in advance,
