I'm confused. I'm not sure what you are asking. Once can change the
kernel command line when building APEX, but one can also change it
afterwards with the tools mentioned on the wiki page. With apexctl,
the MTD block in which APEX is stored must be padded with 0xff, but
when etch is installed, the mtdblock is padded zeros. The easiest way
to get a 0xff padded MTD block is to download the MTD block I prepared
which is hosted by Martin [1], and follow the instructions on the wiki
for loading this image into the NSLU2 flash.

Buf!, so I'm very confused!
Clear me. I understand that after I installed debian with the debian installer for passing new parameters to the kernel I have to:

1) do what with [1]. And how?
2) Run apexctl?
3) Reboot?

You have to understand that I'm a desktop user. I have a ubuntu installed in my system and I done the standard procedures in old debian desktop (compile new kernel, change grub configuration, ....) but never I have done nothing with arm arch, apex, redboot, .... it sound more strange for me


Does this answer your question?
