Installing an openSUSE 12.3 image
- Follow the F&S instructions for possibly upgrading their NBoot firmware and flashing their U-Boot to NAND.
- Extract an openSUSE rootfs to an ext3-formatted microSD card (ext4 not supported by their U-Boot!).
- Use kernel-f+s from openSUSE:12.2:ARM:Contrib:Armstone.
