My first post here...
I am very pleased with the way that our tablet is turning with the development of ICS. I am however a person who likes playing and fiddling with the device.
I got Kubuntu running from the SD-card with the help of the previous posts in this thread. I cant however seem to get any other system running.
I am very interested in Plasma Active One, which is the default OS on the recently released Spark KDE tablet. I found out that some developers got Plasma Active running on the Advent Vega/Viewsonic Viewpad 10. As the Advent Vega served as a base for the previous custom Vegacomb roms from Dexter, I think that it should be possible to boot the images from these developers.
I am however getting several errors when I try to boot from the SD-card, varying from '/dev could not be mounted: no such device' to 'kernel panic: init not found', or nothing might be happening after a little while. Is there anyone who has more experience and could explain to me/us how it might be possible to boot Plasma Active?
Then my second question, more to DerArtem/Nopy or other developers: The kernel that is mentioned in the first post is actually quite old. ICS runs on a much newer kernel. Would it be possible for the newer 3.1 kernel to boot from SD as well, and if so, how?
The newly prepared SD-card doesn't work and causes a kernel panic. The exact error message is as following:
[ 12.432889] Kernel panic - not syncing: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.
From what I've found on the net, this error could be caused by so many things, both software and hardware based... so I am not sure what to do next... Anyone?
I've read something about the nVidia Linux for Tegra releases... the kernel that nVidia mentions on their website is 3.1, is this usable for a possible Linux-booting Folio? What kind of modifications should be made to the release before compiling, in terms of drivers and so?
Thanks so far!
p.s. At the moment I am trying to build an SD-card with a different release of Plasma, I will post eventual results here. There is a custom kernel for the Advent Vega that I found. Would it be possible to flash this kernel to our Folio's without to much of a hassle?
