I'm trying out the fedora-arm(rootfs-f12.tar.bz2) over qemu using the
zImage-versatile-2.6.24-rc7.armv5tel available at the fedora-arm site.
During the boot process, the system stops at the console asking for a
login. Something like:
Fedora release 12 (Constantine)
Kernel 2.6.24-rc7 on an armv5tel (tty1)
Here is where you enter the default username/password :-)
The GUI does NOT start. How do i proceed to login to the system?
It won't. The default rootfs is not bundled with X/desktop environment.
During the boot process i observed the following error as well -
"Starting Udev: modprobe: FATAL: Could not
load /lib/modules/2.6.24-rc7/moodules.dep No such file or directory"
That is not a fatal error. You don't have your kernel modules installed
in the rfs.
I'm launching QEMU with(running as root):
#qemu-system-arm -M versatilepb -kernel
zImage-versatile-2.6.24-rc7.armv5tel -hdc rootfs-f12-dev -append
root="0800" -net nic,vlan=0 -net
My host is a 32 bit F12.
Any pointers will be really helpful.
