ZedBoard Arch Linux documentation errors

Feedback on use of documentation on

http://archlinuxarm.org/platforms/armv7/xilinx/zedboard

1. The ZedBoard spec states "256 Mb Quad-SPI Flash", which gives 32 MegaBytes Non-Volatile RAM, the bootloader reports

Code: Select all
SF: Detected S25FL256S_64K with page size 256 Bytes, erase size 64 KiB, total 32 MiB


This is a 32MB serial NOR device, the above page incorrectly states NAND 256MB

2. The Zedboard dual core ARM processor is rated at 667MHz , not 1GHz as stated. BogoMIPS reported as 1332.01 per core, consistent with the ARMv7 processors running at 667MHz.

3. The SD card installation instructions did not work for me, same faults as reported a couple of times before on these forums for example

viewtopic.php?f=62&t=8956

You cannot use default allocation for partition 2 because that creates a small partition before sector 8192, and 'cp -r' is required to copy the boot subfolder.
