Ah, sorry about that!
Actually 0.3.7 has a lot better logging, it will tell you if the kernel is not loaded correctly and also check and log the init script correctness...

Thanks juiceme!

I didn't even realise there were Git or Subversion repositories. I found the source directory and thought that was all there was! Now I know that there's a Git repo, you may see some patches coming your way.

I assume this is what you are referring to. It seems to contain ubifs and kernel patches so I guess this is the main repo (not just animatronics) that I should be looking at.

@Juiceme:

Hello,

It would be necessary to bring initrd support to ubiboot to be usable without serial console.

Can you make update for that?
It will help for new pmOS.

So you mean possibility to load a separate initrd file with the kernel, instead of just booting the kernel directly on a partition?
Sure, I see no problems with that really; it's just a kernel boot option to load the initrd.

Correct.
To boot pmOS i need to go on Ubuntu, open terminal run kexec command via telnet.
I would like to make it auto when i push on pmOS icon for exemple.
Like running kexec command behind that without my pc.
you can do it?

Yes, it could be done.
However, as you see I have not worked with new releases since 2014, I kind of stopped development on ubiboot when I moved to SFOS

When I have time and interest to do it (= maybe never...?)

I've added support for additional kexec options. That will allow you to specify an initrd image in ubiboot.conf.

I also replaced the Ubuntu graphic for a Maemo Leste graphic.

Let's see if juiceme likes it.
