while browsing the device-owners list, my uncertainity regarding the
images only grew.
there's uImage and there's root-image. how are the to describe in terms of
desktop distributions (uImage writes bootloader, root-image copies an
image to harddisk like knoppix does?)?
and how does doing opkg update && opkg upgrade differ from flashing those
being a longterm debian/sid user i grew accustomed to do aptitude update
&& aptitude dist-upgrade almost every day and compile a new kernel every
now and then ...
thanks in advance
