Hi,
I've just burned kernel 2.6.35.7 using Sheevaplug installer, but I didn't change the lines:


...
# NAND flash partitions. If using kernel >= 2.6.30 then replace orion_nand with orion_mtd
mtdpartitions mtdparts=orion_nand:0x400000@0x100000(uImage),0x1fb00000@0x500000(rootfs)
...


Everything seems ok with orion_nand, but should I change the option to orion_mtd as suggested?

What is the difference between the two?

Are there other uBoot options that should be changed to reflect the new kernel?

Thanks,
  Vorxio

Do not change to "orion_mtd", it only work in kernel older then 2.6.30(i think) all new kernel use "orion_nand" to find the driver.
