|Hello, I recently purchased an i-opener v4 at a rummage sale and my goal is to mount it in my car for mp3's, gps, videos etc. This is the ideal setup im going for in the end: I want to install a version of unix or possible beos onto the sandisk and mount have it mounted read-only. i then want to put in a separate hard drive to mount to my /var and /usr/local(Mounted read-only) partitions. my goal is to be able to use the sandisk for fast booting and Xwindows loading, while mounting as many partitions read-only as possible to avoid having to shutdown the system everytime i turn off my car. i downloaded jailbait and imaged a small hard drive i had laying around to start expermenting on it in my computer before i use it on the iopener. the imaging went fine and i can mount the drive jailbaits on, but it cant boot for some reason. when i look at the partitions on the drive in fdisk i see a bunch of logical drives, which i assume are the ramdisks (cramfs?) that the jailbait website talked about...but what im wondering is, what exactly is the purpose of those ramdisks and will i need them if im going to also have a hard drive in my i-opener? if i choose to use jailbait i want to be able to customize it to my liking before i write it to the sandisk. so if anyone can give me alittle more info on these areas of jailbait id appreciate it.|
another that has occured to me that ive been curious about is QNX. the i-opener comes stock with a nice os already installed on the sandisk, has anyone had any luck customizing and using either the installed version or a newer version of QNX?
well this seems like a good start to explaining what im trying to do...hopefully we can get a discussion going here and i can ask some of the other things i probably forgot to in this post.
