OK, if I could follow simple instructions, I would be dangerous.
Case in point:
We will now use the RAM version of U-Boot to load the flash version
I'm now in the final stages. It all seems to have worked from what I can tell. The last thing it talks about is the need to update the /etc/fstab Before doing this, the instructions state that you should boot the old kernel from flash again via
This always boots up in the 2.4 EM mode flavor. It than talks about how the fstab should look using /dev/sda# instead of /dev/hda#. Do I really need to have it in EM to do this? Could I just boot up with the latest kernel to make the change?
Also, what I have on my list is quite different than what the example shows:
/dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults,noatime,errors=remount-ro 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=20 0 0
/dev/hda2 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda3 /mnt ext3 defaults,noatime 0 0
Are the mount points /proc and /dev/pts needed? Should the options for partitions 1 and 3 just be default or should I leave them the way they are?
I don't fully comprehend why hda needs to be changed to sda....I know it's because of the whole IDE to PATA change but if hda wouldn't work, how am I able to see hda1 and launch apps from it without making any changes to the fstab?
