2.7. Linux filesystems

By default, the V2M-Juno motherboard does not contain any flash Linux filesystems, for example Android, or Open Embedded, anywhere in its on-board storage. To fully boot either of these platforms it is necessary to attach a filesystem, for example, Android or OpenEmbedded, using an external storage device. If no filesystem is attached at boot time, and the Linux kernel programmed into flash expects one, the kernel will boot as far as possible before stopping while it waits for a filesystem to be attached.


If you are using a pre-built Busybox image, the system will boot Linux fully without the need for an external USB storage device containing a filesystem.

ARM recommends that a USB disk is connected using one of the four USB 2.0 ports on the rear panel (Figure 1.2). The type of USB disk can be a flash drive or a hard drive as both are compatible.

See http://community.arm.com/groups/arm-development-platforms for details on preparing an Android or OpenEmbedded filesystem image and how to copy it onto a USB disk ready for use.
