Hi, Brad,

You mention that you boot off the external CF card.  I'm currently using the on-board 16MB Flash for my rootfs, but am reaching its brim.  I would like to be able to use the large (512MB) CF for my rootfs, or at least some of it, if possible.  Do you have any suggestions as how I could do this, and are there any detriment in doing things this way?  Linux has chroot, but I don't know how useful it would be here.

I'm currently only using the CF as an extra ext2 FS for user data.  While the on-board Flash can be written by Uboot, could the CF?  Presumably, I could even split up the CF into multiple filesystems to allow multiple boot capabilities.

Note that my CF card will be internal to the box, and hence not easily removable for external programming.

Thanks for help.

I really think you're barking up the wrong tree with the LCD theory.
I have the samsung (#3) selected in my kernel, but no LCD display
at all, no issues booting that kernel (granted, I boot only via
an external CF card, don't use jffs2, but I think your failure
is occurring before that is relevant anyhow).
