I'm trying to install woody (3.0r1) on an ARM platform, it is all mostly
hackish, own kernel, I just want to set up a "proper" complete Linux
distro for ARM with a compiler, package-management, etc., something a bit
more than busybox. So, I booted my kernel with an NFS-mounted
boot-"floppy", the installer started, I managed after several attempts to
go through the base-installation, either installing on an NFS mount, or on
a local CF (no PCMCIA). I also performed the "kernel-install" (of course,
I am not going to use that kernel, just to satisfy the installer), and
"make system bootable", because I hoped that then the system will really
become complete and ready for the reboot and further installation - but
alas. /etc/inittab and all contents of /etc/rc* is missing. I found one
more post on the internet about the same problem, and no suitable reply. I
could get some scripts from somewhere, the problem is - I don't want to
just boot this system, I want the 2 stage installer to start, then choose
packages, etc. - the usual thing. Well, I can now boot into the shell,
shall I just start the 2nd stage manually from there?
CC to my email will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance
