boot process ?

Postby krbonne » Tue Dec 03, 2013 7:31 pm


I have both two pogoplugv2 devices and a PogoplugPro.

I try to understand what exactly happens when you boot archlinux, debian or some other linux on these devices. (instead of just install it via a script and then use it ;-) ).

I read stuff about multiple partitions on the mtd drive (u-Boot, uImage, rootfs), but there is also a uImage in the /boot directory. In other documentation, I read things nvram parameters and some other stuff.

hence, I am all a bit confused.
Is there a document that describes exactly how the boot process works on these devices?

(As these are two different devices, I crossposted this message in two different fora. I hope that this is not an issue).

Cheerio! Kr. Bonne
