OK, thanks. For the logs and others that are trying to get a bootable
QtMoko with the new unstable branch of the boot system:
SHR works out of the box with the new unstable system, just replacing
the uImage in the boot partition with the one from the SHR root
partition in /boot/. As QtMoko does not work for me and booting the
kernel ends up in a reboot loop, I replaced the kernel from QtMoko with
the SHR kernel:
I used the Debian/LXDE boot system from unstable, replaced uImage in the
boot partition with the one from SHR staging (./boot/uImage-3.4.9) and
copied the kernel and modules from SHR to the QtMoko root partition. Et
voilà - it worked!
BTW: How is the design for multiboot (booting multiple distributions)
supposed to work? The new u-boot menu has options to boot from SD1-4 as
it looks. But it's using the kernel on the first (FAT) partition, isn't it?
