I read in mails archive that Linux kernel can't boot from NAND flash. It
can boot from NOR flash.
Does Linux kernel not able to boot from NAND flash because :
1) a NAND flash is connected to an I/O controller and not to a BUS.
2) access to a NAND flash would be only handled by JFFS with the
handling of bad blocks.
3) it doesn't exist bootloader for NAND flash.
4) other reasons.
If someone could help me to understand why Linux can't boot from
NAND flash, I would appreciate.
