Clonning or reuse rootfs for a different Kirkwood box

I did so many times, perhaps it was not enough :)

The rootfs has the correct settings the first time you extracted to the disk. But after you have booted with it at least once, in some cases, the settings was overwritten by udev. So always check those 2 files when you clone it, or use it to boot other boxes.

Furthermore, you actually need to deal with 2 files, not one. See my previous post:


latest Kirkwood kernel builds and rootfs
latest u-boot-kirkwood builds
latest Oxnas kernel builds and rootfs
latest u-boot-oxnas builds
latest MVEBU Armada kernel builds and rootfs
U-Boot & Kernel Booting process
