Missing plymouth problem with 2.6.37
I have been trying to follow the guide in
and the nvflash from http://scoopr.fi/dump/linux4tegra_10.9.3.tar.gz.
I have had a couple of problems. The first is minor: the README suggests
using the command
sudo LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. ./nvflash --bl ./fastboot.bin --read 6
when this should be sudo LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. ./nvflash --bl
./../prebuilt/fastboot.stock.bin --read 6 tegra_partition_6.bin --go
The second is more serious: After putting the boot image on partition 6,
and attaching a USB-drive with the rootfs.tgz (formatted in ext3), upon
booting there is an error message about a missing /sbin/plymouthd and
The installer continues after this, and allows me to choose location,
keyboard layout, username and password. Soon after this, immediately
after a message about "configuring keyboard", the installer crashed. I
am left with a blank desktop, with only access the the possible wireless
networks, the sound settings, and the shutdown menu. Clicking on
shutdown brings up the shutdown dialogue, but does not shutdown the
device. I cannot log on to the tty consoles (accessed via ctrl-alt-F2
etc) fails, as the username/password I have just chosen are not
recognised. If I shutdown the device by holding the power button, and
then restart, I get the same message about missing plymouth, and the
device loops around trying to start up.
I am using an ac100-10Z, and would be very grateful for suggestions.
This seems to be a very similar problem to that in Charles-Michel
Marle's post on the 22nd of July
(https://lists.launchpad.net/ac100/msg00054.html), if that helps.
