hi,

 

i've load the linux kernel to the bf527ezkit board through the serial successfully

 

but it take about forty minutes at least .

 

i heard that it may take less time using the tftp .

 

would you give me some advice to use it when the host pc is using the windows system

 

thank a lot

You could also consider using FTP. There are tftp servers available for Windows. One other option that works great is to install a virtual machine program like VMWare to co-run linux. I do this with a Mac and it works brilliantly.

 

I'm running Ubuntu 8.10 inside Mac OSX 10.5

 

Serial should not take so long to download. You might check to see if you are running at the maximum bit rate for serial. Also downloading the compressed image helps reduce the time as well.
