Two small corrections: a) the initramfs continues happily under active volunteer development -- it received two new features and a bugfix contributed by a deployment support volunteer (dsd) in the last two weeks, along with patch review and volunteer testing by folks back here in the States. b) While pilgrim may be a dead-end, the ideas underlying it are not. This week, I translated pilgrim's ideas into the simplest form yet achieved, namely, a plain old Makefile: http://dev.laptop.org/git?p=users/mstone/puritan;a=tree;hb=make and used it to produce builds from the olpc4+joyride tree and the rawhide+olpc4+joyride tree (with minor edits). The former booted happily into Sugar and built on both Debian and Fedora. :) (The latter, still using the olpc initramfs, dies because upstart 0.5 still doesn't know how to run as non-pid-1. olpc4's upstart-0.3.9 has a patch which implements this feature.) > > Peter does not have an XO (g...@contrib program extreme slowness!) > > but may be able to help on other issues that surface as the result > > of an available public build... > >Oh, let's fix that.
