Yes the BBB uses u-boot

From the processor http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index....er's_Guide

http://beagleboard.org/linux

https://eewiki.net/display/linuxonarm/BeagleBone+Black

The beagle seems to be more open than others, you can download all the documents on it and you can download all the Ti cpu specs from Ti. The Pi's broadcomm chip IIRC is complained about as requiring an NDA to get the data sheet on it. I would speculate that is drmozes issue with it.

I'm backing up a little bit, now that I know the Banana Pi is supported and will install Slack there to get more familiar with a supported u-boot config before trying the BB again.

I would like some clarity from Doctor Mozes, as to if all models of the banana Pi are supported or only certain models and what was the reason for installing to hdd and not on to the sd?

The host company where the FatDog.NL/FatDog.EU server is located had a power outage. Itīs caused more than a few problems. All I can ask is please be patient. We are working to resolve all current issues.

Exaga, thanks for the info.

You have everything going there so spiffy I couldn't image why it would just disappear oddly like that.

CHEERS!

I had to install slackwarearm 14.2 on a RPi1 (soft float) and I think I made it using this http://www.daves-collective.co.uk/ra...stalling.shtml


The thing that sucks a lot in slackware is, by my personal experience, I spend a lot of time without formatting and setting a new system.
And I forget some stuff!
When I bought my laptop I installed slackware. And I only installed it again because 14.2 was released. I didn't even remember how to setup refind! It was almost three years ago that I done it for the first time.

And this sucks! And a lot!

I skipped (slackware) 11 rather then figuring out how to re-enable the touchpad.

For the soft float I usually use the manual install method

Note it down then - my servers have installation notes. Since the Slackware installation method changes so little between versions, the notes only need small edits to move to the new release.

Stuart, there are years of experience talking from You

Even today I require my customers (I'm PC-tech support) get a notebook and have any issues logged from occurrence to resolving.

At least an

Code:
~/HOWTO-install.txt
or
~/NOTE_to.self
would be recomended with a post install dumped ~/.bash_history of root?

What is the status of H5 (A53? sun50i?) devices in mainline?

The Orange Pi PC2 looks dazzling

If it "sucks" too much find another distro. Slackware provides a basic system plus program groups not necessary for a basic system. Install what you want and configure as you like or require. Perhaps another distro will provide a no brainer install but will you be happy with what other people decided that you want or require?

This is just one of the reasons why I love Slackware. You have total control and can configure it exactly how you want it to be. <3
