[libre-testing]: barebox: install instructions: add missing partition type
Changing the partition type on a BeagleBone green made the bootrom not pick the bootloader anymore. TODO before migrating barebox and barebox-tools to libre: - Make sure that Parabola can fully boot once barebox is installed, without having to mess with the environment through the serial port. TODO: - Add an installation script to install barebox in a way that is similar to what people are used with GRUB. - Enable USB console at boot - Add support for other architectures (i686, x86_64) Signed-off-by: Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli <>
