Nonono. The Rom bootloader loads the closed source binary loader from a FAT partition. This bootloader looks for a binary to execute from a FAT partition.
That binary could just as well be https://github.com/gonzoua/u-boot-pi/tree/rpi.
That u-boot could then read a boot.scr from an ext3 partition and load the kernel+initrd from an ext3 partition.
Why would we want to do it differently from every other RPi distribution out there?
All the HOWTOs tell you to edit cmdline.txt and config.txt, and now we come with our openSUSE boot process and do it differently just because our tools are broken?
No, we do it differently because the point of a distribution is consistency across the distribution. If you come from a beagle board, you want to be able to work with a raspberry pi. Chances are a lot less that you come from Debian on raspberry pi to openSUSE on raspberry pi. If you are on Debian, we lost you already ;). Alex
And we'd even waste some boot time :-)
That time should be negligible. Alex -- To unsubscribe, e-mail: email@example.com To contact the owner, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
