2008-08-29 07:37:08     Booting kernel from flash cm-bf537e

Hi

 

I have problem booting a kernel from flash on a Bluetechnix cm-bf537e module

After downloading the kernel from my tftp server and just run

 

bootm 1000000

 

everything works fine....

 

After

 

cp.b 1000000 20040000 $(filesize)

and

bootm 20040000

 

it complains about CRC error....

 

I suspect that it has anything to do with the PF4 thing because when i compare memory

it fails at the 2MB border, that PF4 enables...

 

Anyone here that succesfully booted a kernel that tips over the 2MB limit...

 

 

 

best regards Håkan

bootm wont currently work as you cross flash boundaries and the flash is not entirely directly addressable.  you would have to copy it into external memory, swap flashes, copy the rest, and then bootm out of external memory.
