I can confirm that this works on my PASemi Electra reference board, with the most recent Electra-specific kernel you built. In my case, I loaded the payloads via tftp:

If you got this message (Busybox : Using fallback suid method) when you login as a user, then execute the following command:

Code: Select all
chmod u+s /bin/busybox

Just for info: What is BusyBox and passwords + users on SliTaz:

User "amigaone" with password "amigaone"
User "root" with password "amigaone"

What is BusyBox?

BusyBox provides several stripped-down Unix tools in a single executable file. It is beside the Linux kernel the most important part of SliTaz.

Have a lot of fun with SliTaz PPC Linux. :-)

The graphical user interface of SliTaz is AmiWM. It tries to make your display look and feel like an Amiga Workbench screen. It is fully functional and can do all the usual window manager stuff, like moving and resizing windows. You can start AmiWM with the script "startamiwm".

The script startamiwm contains the following command:

Code: Select all
Xfbdev -retro -mouse mouse,device=/dev/input/mice -keybd evdev,,device=/dev/input/event0 | xterm -e amiwm


Sometimes, the keyboard isn't connected to the device file event0. Please try event1 instead.

Code: Select all
Xfbdev -retro -mouse mouse,device=/dev/input/mice -keybd evdev,,device=/dev/input/event1 | xterm -e amiwm

Hi Cristian
How do you write the CFE MENU command line to SliTaz? It is the statement of the RAM disk I can not figure out.
Thanks

Here is my CFE entry for SliTaz:

Code: Select all
MENU_4_LABEL=SliTaz Snapshot 25 Kernel 4.9
MENU_4_COMMAND=set pmu -astate=A4 ; ramdisk -z -addr=0x24000000 -fatfs cf0:slitaz25.gz ; boot -elf -noints -fatfs cf0:vmlinux-4.9


Instructions for creating:

Code: Select all
CFE> setenv -p MENU_4_LABEL "SliTaz Snapshot 25 Kernel 4.9"


Code: Select all
CFE> setenv -p MENU_4_COMMAND 'set pmu -astate=A4 ; ramdisk -z -addr=0x24000000 -fatfs cf0:slitaz25.gz ; boot -elf -noints -fatfs cf0:vmlinux-4.9'
