blue hash (UNITED STATES)
Message: 54334 Hello,
My board: Custom BF537 with a 2 ST320EB flash chips totalling to 4Mb
Uclinux 2008, u-boot-1.1.6
In MTD support, my options
<*> Detect flash chips by Common Flash Interface (CFI) probe
< > Detect non-CFI AMD/JEDEC-compatible flash chips
[ ] Flash chip driver advanced configuration options
< > Support for Intel/Sharp flash chips
< > Support for AMD/Fujitsu flash chips
<*> Support for ST (Advanced Architecture) flash chips
--- Support for RAM chips in bus mapping
<*> Support for ROM chips in bus mapping
< > Support for absent chips in bus mapping
This is what I get,
physmap platform flash device: 00400000 at 20000000
physmap-flash.0: Found 1 x16 devices at 0x0 in 16-bit bank
Support for command set 0002 not present
gen_probe: No supported Vendor Command Set found
RedBoot partition parsing not available
Using physmap partition information
Creating 4 MTD partitions on "physmap-flash.0":
0x00000000-0x00040000 : "Bootloader"
0x00040000-0x00120000 : "Kernel"
0x00120000-0x003f0000 : "RootFS"
0x003f0000-0x00400000 : "MAC Address"
Has the chip been probed successfully? It says found, but then "No supported Vendor Command Set found"

Message: 54349 if the partition map was displayed and you got the device nodes in /dev, then it worked fine
the warnings about command sets are normal
