Installation on Amiga 1200
I recently dusted off my Amiga 1200  and am now trying to get
Linux to run on it.
Thanks to Google, I came across a post  by Adrian Glaubitz that
explains the installation of Debian. I followed the instructions but
the m68k-base.tgz and vmlinuz-3.2.0-4-amiga files were no longer
available at the URLs mentioned. I contacted Adrian off-list and got an
immediate response (thanks again!) pointing me to .
Using amiboot, I am able to boot the kernel.  is a video of the
boot process. I am running into a kernel panic as the root filesystem
cannot be found / mounted.
This is probably due to the fact that I slightly deviated from the
instructions: I did not create an affs partition on the same CompactFlash
card on which I created the ext4 and swap partitions. That card only has
these two partitions (see ). I copies amiboot as well as the kernel
and initrd images to my Amiga's internal harddisk (also a CompactFlash
card). Upon booting Linux, the CompactFlash card with the ext4 and
swap partitions is in the CompactFlash reader that is attached via
Question (finally): does the setup I described above work? If so,
what would be the correct argument for root=?
PS: What a great way of introducing myself to the list :-( First my
mail client sends an unfinished version of the mail to the list and
then my GPG plugin comes up with the brilliant idea to encrypt the
mail using my public key.
Sorry for the noise!
