I have currently compiled the QorIQ SDK (update 1703) for the (LS1012A FRDM) board, more specifically fsl-image-full and fsl-image-kernelitb. This gives me some u-boot, rcw, kernel and rootfs files / images. Now I would like to boot this extended Linux (the full image) from a USB drive. Unfortunately I'm not sure as of how to setup the environment correctly to achieve this.

 

The USB drive is recognized correctly in both the U-boot bootloader and the Linux that came preinstalled on the board. Some debug info:

     => usb storage
     Device 0: Vendor: Intenso Rev: 1.00 Prod: Speed Line
     Type: Removable Hard Disk
     Capacity: 15237.1 MB = 14.8 GB (31205621 x 512)


     => usb part

     Partition Map for USB device 0 -- Partition Type: DOS

     Part Start Sector Num Sectors UUID Type
     1 32 31205344 0005d59e-01 83

 

     => usb dev

     USB device 0: Vendor: Intenso Rev: 1.00 Prod: Speed Line
     Type: Removable Hard Disk
     Capacity: 15237.1 MB = 14.8 GB (31205621 x 512)

 

The drive has been formatted as ext2 and I put all the files of the rootfs archive (extracted it) and the kernel-fsl-ls1012a-frdm.itb file on it.

 

Thanks in advance!
