Hey gibson, thanks heaps for that! Actually, yourncomment before asking which folder I was in did it. Very strange, I had to run the commands from 2 folders above the extracted one, then symlink all the other files into the folder I was running from. Will post more later for people who run into similar issues, likely over at the unbricking thread. For now I've got a dualboot setup, and am running a minimal natty rootstock. I tried using the full omap4 image (ubuntu's default arm), but could only get it booting with lots of errors and no gui. Will be aiming to install the netbook desktop (unity 2d) in the next few days.
Re the post above, rayman's boot image already includes the kernel, so it's not needed in the rootstock command. Re the other options, probably will work, but remember rootstock is limited in what you can build... I.e., unless you have heaps of physical ram, you will probably only be able to build a few packages. Head over to xda, and the ubuntu on adam thread there for more info. We have experimented a lot with rootstock builds, and some of that might be useful.
Has anyone tried raymans boot.img with a natty rootstock? Did it work, and has anyone gotten a 2d unity gui up and running? My minimal natty rootstock boots fine, though I notice a few errors. Not sure if they are problematic or not. In any case, the build I made seems to be missing some important wireless tools, so I will likely rebuild it again with them in it soon. Am I likely to run into any problems using rayman's boot image, and steveh's kernel, with a natty build? Happy to post up my work if I get anything decent. Cheers.
