Hey all! I know this board has been dead for years but I never got any use from it back when it was popular. I was able to get Ubuntu 18.04 on there using the digikey instructions.
My next goal was to get the rootfs running off of SSD…
Looking at current docs, there is no mention, and looking on archive.org I see a few things, but none of them work - I assume it is due to newer uBoot versions.
I found this post - https://rogerunwin.wordpress.com/2011/06/07/pandaboard-rootfs-on-usb-ssd-hd/
And from archive dot org OMAP_FAQ#I_want_to_install_Ubuntu_on_external_USB_hard_disk_instead_of_sluggish_SD_card (had to butcher that, says I have more than two links in the post)
All I have found myself doing is inducing a kernel panic while still booting from the SD card. I am running the Linux arm 5.0.19-armv7-rt-x15 kernel and I have the serial console cable. Anyone know the correct process to make this happen?
