Re: [Installer] SMACKME 2.0 (kexec or moboot, native Linux or Android)
Hey castrwilliam nice job
I have a question. I already have cm10 and webos installed and want to get ubuntu 12.10. But i always had a problem with kernel panic error. So i came across your recent post. Can i just follow your instructins for ubuntu or do i have to install the rest too? I already have the moboot installed. Thanks for your response

sent from my hp touchpad 32gb dual boot CM10

This is how I did it and it worked just fine:

In my sminstall folder on the TP I had: moboot_0.3.5.zip, uImage.kexec, kexec-ubuntu.tar, and TouchPadBuntuRootfs1210v2.tar.gz.

I ran novacom boot mem:// < uImage.SmackMe2, and let it run. Took probably 15 mins at least.

Rebooted, chose kexec, chose Ubuntu, all working ok....[COLOR="Silver"]

You're adding files that aren't concatenated yet. (hence the .1, .2. and .3 extensions.) This is what you need to do. I'm assuming you're going to be doing this on the same, Windows computer...

Code:
copy TouchPadBuntuRootfs1210v2.tar.gz.1+TouchPadBuntuRootfs1210v2.tar.gz.2+TouchPadBuntuRootfs1210v2.tar.gz.3 TouchPadBuntuRootfs1210v2.tar.gz
copy HPTPSlackware14test1.tar.gz.1+HPTPSlackware14test1.tar.gz.2+HPTPSlackware14test1.tar.gz.3 HPTPSlackware14test1.tar.gz
Transfer the HPTPSlackware14test1.tar.gz and TouchPadBuntuRootfs1210v2.tar.gz files to the TouchPad's sminstall folder, and delete the .1, .2, and .3 files.

Re-run SmackMe. You shouldn't need to redoctor your TP, assuming you didn't create any cm-* LVMs (e.g. by running normal ACME).

By the way, a few hints about my installer:
  • It saves a log in the sminstall folder if you want to find out what went right or wrong
  • It NEVER deletes original installation files. It will move them to either "invalid" or "finished" under the sminstall folder, and after you are satisfied with your installation, you can delete them.
  • It will soon be updated with support for concatenating archives during installation (which would make it work when you put in the .1,.2,.3 files.
  • I will also add recovery kernels to the kexec packages, and once I have the method for modding them, I will document it. It is likely to be more involved than what can be done by the installer itself, but if it isn't, I will add hotpatch support for uImage recoveries like it does with Android normal uImages.

You need to copy uImage.SmackMe2 to the locations of your novacom driver installation.

Re: [Installer] SMACKME 2.0 (kexec or moboot, native Linux or Android)
OK BTW love the work you have done here.. OK i got slack all in and desided to remove my original Ubuntu install and redo it under kexec..then it broke. I get an error every time i run smackme...photo shows it (the marks at the very bottom were me hitting the volume key to see if it froze.) Any ideas...going to doctor my TP and start fresh will report. (Note this problem now shows with or with output files in sminstall dir.)
