    Bootable SD card

    Hi!

    Im following the instructions here:

    http://linux-sunxi.org/Bootable_SD_card#Bootloader

    but I can`t find the cardroot command... Looks like it is not in the debian repositories...

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Miha

    Cardroot is not a command. It is a variable that you're setting.

    Re: Bootable SD card

    Sorry, I somehow did not see the assigment sign..

    I have another question:

    Does the dd command erase the flash memory before writing to it? Would it be reasonable to erase the entire card using


    dd if=/dev/zero of=${card}

    ?

    I assume that when the card is new/empty, then there are just zeroes on it, however if it is partitioned with some sort of file system it has to have some data on it somewhere. Am I right?

    Thanks,

    Miha
