I have released a snapshot of SliTaz PPC Linux for the AmigaOne X1000.

SliTaz GNU/Linux is a free operating system working completely in memory from removable media such as a cdrom or CF card or USB key. It is light and speedy. SliTaz is distributed in the form of a initrd.gz that you can easily burn to a cdrom or copy to a CF card or USB key and boot from. When the system is running you can eject the LiveCD or USB key and use your CD drive or USB socket for other tasks. SliTaz PPC is in development yet.

The snapshot includes:
  • BusyBox 1.21.1 and SliTaz base configuration to boot the system
  • bc-1.06 - Text mode calculator
  • zlib-1.2.8 - Compression libraries
  • pcre-8.33 - Perl-compatible regular expressions
  • e2fsprogs-1.42.8 - Filesystem management utilities
  • Dropbear-2013.60 - Lightweight SSH client and server
  • lighttpd-1.4.32 - HTTP Web server
  • SQLite 3.8.1 2013-10-17 - Small SQL database engine
Note: SliTaz PPC has still not a desktop. It's an experimental system for experienced users.

You can boot it with following commands:

Code: Select all

CFE> ramdisk -z -addr=0x24000000 -fatfs cf0:slitaz4.gz

Code: Select all

CFE> boot -elf -noints -fatfs cf0:vmlinux-3.10.15-ubuntu

Hi,

If you like to configure network then use the following command:

udhcpc -i <network interface>

For example:

Code: Select all

udhcpc -i eth1
Anyway I have released a new snapshot of SliTaz PPC Linux for the AmigaOne X1000.

Christian,

I'm not having any luck getting the ramdisk to load.
Neither CFE nor Linux will recognize the file as a .gz
type of file.

I have tried slitaz 8 and 10.
