I succeeded to install full Slackware ARM on the pandaboard.
I did the following:
* sd with 2 partitions, one (vfat) for bootloaders (MLO, u-boot.bin) and uImage and the other one (ext2) for minirootfs
* copy xloader (MLO), uboot and uImage from Angstrom distro on the first partition
* copy Slackware ARM minirootfs on the second partition with Angstrom modules in the usual path (/lib/modules/...)
* boot in ARMedslack
* install all the others packages via NFS
I had to make some changes to configuration files as indicated here:http://giovanni.wordpress.com/pandaboard/
The next step is to build a kernel and modules for omap4 by myself and use them instead of the Angstrom ones.
One question: is there any kind of package manager, such as slap-get, sbopkg, etc. for Slackware ARM? If not, can I use the SlackBuilds from slackbuilds.org
? How to modify them?
