Installing Debian on Omega2+ board
Oops, that's my fault: forgot to initialize swap partition. I'll update the intructions. Thank you, Chris.
This is quite an interesting project, thanks for posting.. How could we run a script or binary within the Debian shell automatically from boot?
Or a crontab? I have installed crontab but we are only running a shell here, so it misses out the init.d from a proper boot.
Do u have a tutorial video ? I'm newbie with omega
It is amazing. Thanks a lot :)
@Serge-V How I can use gpio from debian chroot?
Not a bad thing to know but a debian user you can't use kernel related packages and/or dependencies as you're not changing the kernel.
Will the device still retain wireless capabilities?? What are the cons to adding Debian as the root os? Can you create a system to do options like cmake? Will it draw more power??
@Brandt-Martin I see the wifi ability piece now
is there a good way to automate the process so debian boots up immediately?
I had a script that handled the mounting and the chrooting but the chrooting didnt take until after a login.
I had this run at rc.local
/bin/mount --bind /dev /tmp/run/mountd/mmcblk0p1/dev
/bin/mount --bind /proc /tmp/run/mountd/mmcblk0p1/proc
/bin/mount --bind /sys /tmp/run/mountd/mmcblk0p1/sys
/usr/sbin/chroot /tmp/run/mountd/mmcblk0p1 /bin/bash
Do you think this would work in an Omega 2+ which firmware was updated to LEDE 17.01.4?
Is there any reason u-boot couldn't be configured to pass root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 to the kernel and driectly boot a Debian system? Or maybe someone has already done such?
