Summary: kernel not starting

Details:

 

I am updating from kernel release 2009 which works great to 2010R1-RC5.

The configuration files are identical. The later release is getting hung and I have no idea why. It does not output anything. There is no activity at all. I am completely out of ideas.

 

The kernel is getting hung trying to start

I have confirmed that CONFIG_MTD_UCLINUX is not set. I have enabled early printk and nothing is output. Here are my u-boot arguments.

 

bootargs=root=/dev/mtdblock0 rw clkin_hz=25000000 earlyprintk=serial,uart0,115200 console=ttyBF0,115200

bootcmd=run nandboot

baudrate=115200

loads_echo=1

ipaddr=10.137.202.2

serverip=10.137.202.1

rootpath=/romfs

gatewayip=10.137.202.1

netmask=255.255.255.0

hostname=bf537-tft

loadaddr=0x1000000

nandboot=nand read.jffs2 0x1000000 0x1000000 0x1000000;bootm 0x1000000

stdin=serial

stdout=serial

stderr=serial

ethact=bfin_mac

 

I have also enabled the console so I do not believe that is the issue. Any help on what I should try would be great. I have also attached a bug report.

Never mind I copied and modified the new stamp.c and it worked. I am not exactly

sure what I changed to get it to work. Please close.
