Letux Makesd


Table of Content

This describes the list of partition variants that are supported.


The makes tool allows to download and install multiple partitions on a SD card so that you can install and multi-boot to different operating systems through the boot loader menu.


Variants are named by one keyword, but might recursively expand to several partition descriptions. This allows e.g. to format a production image for the gta04b2 by just specifying this name. It will expand into a FAT boot partition with MLO, X-Loader, kernel and an ext rootfs partition with the root file system that can be used for flashing the NAND:
