Starting from square one

Hey everyone,

So after a whole mess of problems, I've decided to start fresh.

I've formatted my SD card that I was attempting to boot with (formatted on windows).

After removing my SD card and just letting the Pogoplug Mobile try to boot, I am getting this output in serial console:

Should state I have literally no idea what I'm doing, this is my first experience with Linux.

Thanks,

Wes,

This error might indicate that there is not enough power into the bus for whatever reason:

run this command to see if the card is recognized
printenv
mmc rescan
If it did then run

ext2ls mmc 0:1 /boot

Bodhi,

Here is the output from the commands:

I formatted the SD card in a Windows 8.1 computer, in case you missed that part of my post.

Everything is OK here.

Now that's the problem. You need to format this card as Ext2/Ext3/Ext4. So if you don't have a Linux laptop/desktop then you need to do this on a Linux Live CD. However, that will be a little cumbersome (you need to be root user to create the rootfs).

Advice: either intstall Ubuntu VM on your Windows PC/laptop, or ask someone who has Linux to do it. Use rootfs Debian-4.4.0-kirkwood-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2 in this instruction:
