Good!FWIW, I too have now burned a card seemingly successfully from my archlinux box too, thanks for the prompt fixes! I can't test it yet though since I'm in the middle of a podcast and don't like to reboot then if I can.
It seems to use a boot.scr, not a boot.txt, and I have no idea if it's even possible to edit those to make them autoboot. In that case, I'll be flying blind - can anyone tell me how many times I need to press down before pressing B on my Pandora to make it boot from the left SD slot?

Hi, thanks for trying!Thank you for your effort to provide a recent OS for the "old" Pandora.
I gave makesd a try, but the sd card has some issues on my Pandora (1Ghz model):
- When the start up finished, the Pandora has a pop up on the screen containing the text "No session for pid 2445"
- The nubs do not work (this is a know issue), and i have no experience running lxde with keyboard only, therefore this is the end of the road for me on the GUI.
- To make some progress on the GUI i tried do connect a USB mouse via OTG adapter to the Pandora; when i look into /var/log/message the mouse is detected, but i do not get a mouse pointer on the desktop
- Via /var/log/message i found that my USB-NIC is not recognized on the USB-A connector on the Pandora, But the USB-NIC is recognized via the OTG adapter.
- There is a problem with the hwclock. On the first boot the Pandora shows the correct date / time, but after restart i get something with 1st January.
Ah, good. I think it controls some gpio.I think the host USB connector is handled by modprobing in a kernel module, and turned off in turn the rmmodding it. No idea what happens inside that module though.
Oh, yes! And there were so many fixes in other areas (Pyra, i.MX6, ...) that the Pandora has become lower priority which is a shame since it is a very well working hardware far from being outdated. So it deserves availability of latest kernels (with all these nice fixes and features provided by Linus and his team).a year has gone so fast.
- the popup "No session for pid XXX" is still there
- the nubs are fix, working fine
- the external mouse and keyboard are working now (keyboard layout is english)
- No joy with the USB-A connector, but in the mean time i (think i) found out that is is enabled in SuperZaxxon by loading the module ehci-hcd (see /etc/init.d/usbhost). The ehci-hcd module does not exist in the letux kernel.
- the issue with the time is fixed too
- most/all lxde programs, configuration dialogs, apps are too big when opened. Only the status bar is good in size. The LXTerminal in the background is resized to 40x10 characters to fit display area.
- Some keys on the pandora keyboard do not work (no output to the terminal, tested in LXTerminal), the keys are:
