On a 1.3 PAL Xbox, with a SmartXX 2 mod chip, menus works
I've also tested Slow Reset, Fast Reset and Power Down.

One remark: the hardware information disappears from the screen once a 
sub menu has been activated, then left: going back to the main screen 
shows the "boot icons", but the HW info is lost.

I'm not sure about the 'wide screen' setting: should it modify the way 
Cromwell is displayed itself ? (on my xbox, no change are shown)

I did not tested to boot from the HD yet, since I do not have Linux 
installed on this Xbox - I will install it to validate this release further.

Is there a Xromwell release to validate as well (I have another Xbox, 
1.1 w/ Xebian installed on the F: drive; however, the Xecuter Pro 2 is a 
brick, so I had to flash the TSOP and I do not want to overwrite it) ?

Emmanuel.

Re: Beta Cromwell release

I would like to see booting from C:(FATX) in addition to E:. I made the
modification(just a few lines without impacting any existing logic) though I
am not sure if it is desirable as a standard way. The reason is that with
this, I can keep the kernel/initrd at C: rather that E:, this makes cloning
and upgrading a sofmod cleaner(copying 500M at most rather than 8G).

How is the multiple boot option in linuxboot.cfg handled ? Another text menu
? Didn't have the time to try that yet.

Thanks for the work especially the more than 4 icons and the text menu.

regards,

gary

A rar can be opened with winRAR. Google will guide you!

Ide-scsi possible?

Well after trying to boot a 2.6 kernel built from the latest cvs and  
patched over linux-2.6.9-nitro4 (which woudln't boot) and after a bit of  
reading finding thatn there is no working fatx driver yet for the 2.6  
kernel (right?) I am wondering if it is possible to get ide-scsi working  
under 2.4? I had tried to do this a while back,but the  drive would just  
not work with ide-scsi.Has anything changed since or am I SOL as far as  
getting raw cd-reading working and/or using the xbox drive as a remote  
scsi device? Also does xebian 1.1.0 support focus vga or will I need  
latest cvs?

Thanks

Cromwell bios - bootable from media possible?

I am just wondering if i can build a bootable from media cromwell bios so  
I can use it without reflashing my modchip.I had a look trhough the latest  
cvs and could not find any references to it....so is it possible? Or does  
this hack only work with MS based bioses?

Thanks

Linux on Xbox

Hi all.

I have a new Crystal Xbox and have been wondering about putting Linux on 
it. I see all these mod chips out there saying they enable Linux, etc to 
run.

Does anyone have any views on which of the mod chips are good and which 
are bad?

Many thanks

Trev

There is an xbe of cromwell, called Xromwell, which you can launch from a
modified MS bios, or softmod.  That's the preferred route, I'd say, and
should let you use it without needing to reflash your chip.

Booting 2.6.8.1

I wish I could report the same success as some here.
 
The kernel builds fine few warnings etc but those come up during most kernel build regardless of platform.
 
The problem I have is at boot even though I have "initrd no" in my linuxboot.cfg, the boot errors out saying no initrd found in config file. I have tried building without BLK_INITRD and encounter the same error, a 2.4.28 build works fine.
 
box ver 1.2
