(Apologies if this comes as a duplicate. The first version exceeded the 
mailing list's message maximum size.)

I would like to upgrade a collection of GTA02s currently running kernel 
2.6.29 (old!) and 2.6.34 to something newer.

I thought 3.5 would be a good choice: I heard that Dennis GNUtoo had it 
working... but I can't even get started!

I am using the om-gta02/3.5/master branch from 
git:// (currently at 7b0ccb3) but I 
couldn't find any sample kernel configuration files.

I tried to adapt the kernel configuration file we already used to the 
new version, but I must have done something wrong because the kernel 
doesn't even receive its command line from the bootloader. Without a 
valid command line, the kernel doesn't get far:

   Uncompressing Linux... done, booting the kernel.
[    0.575000] Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs 
on unknown-block(0,0)

Qi claims to be setting the command line as follows:

loglevel=2 console=tty0 console=ttySAC2,115200 init=/sbin/init ro 
  rootfstype=jffs2 root=/dev/mtdblock6

I have attached the configuration file I am trying to use. Does anyone
have an example of a better one?
