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.
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?
