You can have the new merged hwpack with new kernel, new boards and old boot environment.
I tested it on my tablet ant it's booting ... but I'd appreciate if you had a go at it too.
Your again updated scripts:
New hwpack + 14.1 rootfs + option cubietruck are booting now.
Old hwpack + 14.0 rootfs + option cubieboard2 (because in old hwpack is no cubietruck): I don't tested booting, because in /lib/modules are no modules, it is empty again.

Sincerely,
Arnim!

I guess I should start versioning the script .... I made changes to the part that copies the modules, but I synced that maybe after you downloaded it.
this is what the section that copies over the modules should look like if you have the latest version:
Code:
mkdir -p /mnt/floppy/lib/modules/${KERNEL}.${HARDWARE}+
if [ -d /tmp/hwpack/modules/${KERNEL}.${HARDWARE}+ ]
then
  cp -apr /tmp/hwpack/modules/${KERNEL}.${HARDWARE}+/* /mnt/floppy/lib/modules/${KERNEL}.${HARDWARE}+/
elif [ -d /tmp/hwpack/modules/${KERNEL}.${HARDWARE} ]
then
  cp -apr /tmp/hwpack/modules/${KERNEL}.${HARDWARE}/* /mnt/floppy/lib/modules/${KERNEL}.${HARDWARE}+/
fi
If you have that but the old hwpack still generates empty /lib/modules/${KERNEL}.${HARDWARE}+/ then I guess I've to double check something.

:-)

I had a look at ftp://ftp.slackware.org.uk/slackware...ple/louigi600/ today in the morning! There was the same file, I downloaded yesterday after your post.
You say yesterday, your are currently syncing. So I wait for a while (maybe 1 hour), and then I started the download, but the file was not the new one.
Time for syncing more than 12 hours?

But now, there is the new file.
I will test the new file today in the evening.

Arnim!

No it's my fault I've been updating several times ... but assumed that since nobody had answered you'd all get the newest version.

I've synced a new version that also let's you choose between ext2 and ext4 on the root filesystem leaving it to the end user to decide which is best for whatever they want to do. For those that are clueless here are my personal considerations:
on a portable devices (especially tablets) you may prefer to sacrifice valuable erase cycles in favor journaled filesystem for other applications you can favor flash device life by not having journaled fylesystems.

Concerning the kernel I've a working wifi on sunxi kernel version 3.4.75 but it's built for sun5i so I can't give you that. Also vanilla kernels will not support enough Allwinner SOC features to be useful ... without handling script.bin I don't think any of the GPIO pins get assigned to doing things like SD, UART, I2C, SPI ... and so on.

We'll need to wait till the sunxi kernel team fixes the issue then maybe I can merge cycojesus's newest kernel and modules into my custom hwpack, I could build and test one for sun5i but we'd still be lacking sun4i support: any volunteer ?
