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? And we'd even waste some boot time :-) -- Stefan Seyfried "If your lighter runs out of fluid or flint and stops making fire, and you can't be bothered to figure out about lighter fluid or flint, that is not Zippo's fault." -- bkw -- To unsubscribe, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org To contact the owner, e-mail: email@example.com
