hello

the guide on this page http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Raspberry_Pi_Quick_Install_Guide says

The Raspberry Pi boots off a FAT32 /boot partition, you will also require a root and swap partition.

and the command below is

mkfs.vfat -F 16 /dev/mmcblk0p1

i mean the -F 16 formats to FAT16?!

i followed the giud an maked it with -F 16.


My Problem

i have a combatible Samsung SDHC Card with 16gbi prevuisly have used this card for raspbian without problems.

now i have made the guid form the link on top of the this post.

i plugged in the card i my RPI an it doesn't anything only the red power led is on.


THX for answers and sorry for my bad english!

Not your fail. Your English can be understood. It is not so bad.

Try again with -F 32.

I was only looking at the difference between what is written in the guide and the command shown.
Today tested it. Formatted the boot partition of another card.

Code:
# mkfs.vfat -F 16 /dev/sda1
mkfs.vfat 3.0.13 (30 Jun 2012)


However, fdisk says that it is FAT32:

Code:
   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1            8192      122879       57344    c  W95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/sda2          122880    15564799     7720960   83  Linux


Copied the data from the running Linux /boot to the newly formated partition and that card booted.
There is an error in the guide, but it does not appear to matter.
I do not have Gentoo on the Pi, in part because I would want a cross compiler first.

NeddySeagoon,

I agree. Years ago I resurrected an MC68040 using NetBSD with the cross-compiler on a Gentoo box. This was before crossdev.
Like the Pi, it used very little power. It served as a test web and an NFS server, and it served its purpose well.
The board went bad or I'd be using it still.
