Post Disable booting from micro sd-card
Hi,
i finally was able to install arch linux arm on my utilite pro model.
I followed the instructions from http://archlinuxarm.org/platforms/armv7 ... le/utilite

To enable the booting from sd-card i connected the utilite via rs232 and executed the lines

Code:
setenv kernel uImage
saveenv
boot


But now, after finishing the installation, i want to "revert" the changes to boot from the sd-card.
how can i achieve that? How can i disable the booting from the micro sd card.

Thanks
Marko

To put the uBoot environment back to as it was, in uboot
Code:
env default -a
saveenv
reset

Thx!!

Btw: what is your prefered program to connect a host pc to the utilite. I'm using screen or minicom from my raspberry pi but it is very tricky to get it to work because screen terminates very often and it looks like that the raspberry pi sends characters to the rs232 interface while i didn't use the keyboard.

Thx
Marko

I recommend picocom, which is a lot simpler than minicom. It doesn't include all that modem dial string crap that you don't need.
