Hey Folks,

I am attempting to install Gentoo on a beagleboard, which is based on ARMv7 I believe.

I have an Angstrom kernel I am booting from that will mount an nfsroot for me but it dies after mounting the NFS share. I have confirmed that NFS is working properly from another machine on the network.

The location its pointing to is based on an nfsroot from here: http://dev.gentoo.org/~vapier/arm/

Here is the error:
Code:

[  126.522979] Sending DHCP requests .<6>eth0: link up, 100Mbps, full-duplex, lpa 0x45E1

It is my understanding that it should be running /linuxrc at this point to begin loading the OS correct?

Here are the lines from the beginning of the kernel load:

Have a look at http://neuvoo.org.

What did you put on the nfsroot? Have you tried using init=/bin/bash?

You must use an external power supply instead of USB power, even if you have no periperals (well I'm just monitoring the output over RS-232 and doing nothing else, when my kernel panics).
I got the 5Vdc wall wart from Special Computing and it fixed my kernel panic problem.

What progress can your report?

I've ordered a Beagle Bone and have an eye to install Gentoo on it. I'd like to know if you succeeded or what roadblocks you ran into.

Thank you.

Pefect. Thank you.

if one visits: http://beagleboard.org/project and then searches for Gentoo, you get

=============================

The link to "homepage" http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/base/embedded/ is just a who's who
which really doesn't help anyone wanting to install Gentoo on the Beagle Board.

What you provided above is precisely what I was hoping for. I encourage you to do whatever you can to update the Beagle Board site that directs someone to the detailed installation you have. I'm directing this at you since it appears you were the one at the Beagle Board site to initiate the project entry. Otherwise, people looking at the Beagle Board site, such as I did, will consider Gentoo on the Beagleboard a wish that was started and never finished -- much like many of the projects at the BeagleBoard site.

I hate to necromance topics, but I am trying to get a BeagleBoard-like hardware to fly (well, it is a Devkit 8000, but it should be similar enough).

One issue that is slowing me down is that it likes to boot to a serial console, although I have a perfectly good and working VGA interface attached to it.

Do I need to do anything special to get it to show the boot onto it?

Thanks in advance.
