JonnyRo88's Journal: MeshAP on my wierd low mem laptop

Journal by JonnyRo88
I still couldnt get the meshAP cd to load up on my laptop with 64MB of ram, a fujitsu Lifebook E330. The system doesnt finish booting because the initrd is apparently too large for the 64MB of ram available on the system. I think the problem arises because the laptop is using some of the system memory for the video card or something.

However I was able to figure out what image the flasher cd loads by mounting the cd's initrd in a loopback interface.

It uses a file called reflash.bz2 and loads it to the drive by running:

bzip2 -d reflash.bz2 > /dev/hda

I think I can write this file to the laptop using a gentoo install cd. I can pull the file over NFS from my main Gentoo box.
