2008-09-16 09:46:38     u-boot for TCM-BF537

I'm working with TCM-BF537 and CM-BF537E from bluetechnix.


With CM-BF537E I don't have any problem, I'm using the 1.1.6 version.


For TCM-BF537, it's not port to 1.1.6 version and the path (from bluetechnix) is for 1.1.3 (2006R2)


I downloaded the u-boot-1.1.3 (2006R2) and applied the path from bluetechnix.


I have and error when I try to compile. The system answer me this:


$make tcm-bf537_config






s -c -o stubs.o stubs.c

bfin-uclinux-ar cr libstubs.a  stubs.o

bfin-uclinux-ld -g  -Ttext 0x1000 \

                -o hello_world -e _hello_world hello_world.o libstubs.a \

                -L/opt/uClinux/bfin-uclinux/lib/gcc/bfin-uclinux/4.1.2 -lgcc

libstubs.a(stubs.o): In function `app_startup':

/home/mikimonster/src/Programs/u-boot/u-boot_1.1.3/examples/stubs.c:164: undefined reference to `_bss_start'

/home/mikimonster/src/Programs/u-boot/u-boot_1.1.3/examples/stubs.c:164: undefined reference to `_bss_start'

make[1]: *** [hello_world] Error 1

make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/mikimonster/src/Programs/u-boot/u-boot_1.1.3/examples'

make: *** [examples] Error 2



I try with TCM-BF537 and STAMP ans say me the same error.


I'm using the toolchain 2008R1. Can be this the problem?


Somebody is working with the port of TCM-BF537 to 1.1.6 ?

only the latest u-boot release is supported.  if you get errors on older releases, you get to figure it out.


TCM-BF537 support is already in trunk u-boot.

i have also problems with the TCM.VF537 board.

I have the USB-ETH extender board with an Micrel KS8721 ehternet chip.

I want to download the uImage over network but i cant use this.

The "ping" reports "host is not alive" although i have connected the ethernet to the modul.

The jellow LED on the network connector shiners and the green blink sometimes, so i think the chip is working.

Is there any special configuration needed to use ethernet with the TCM-BF537 modul?


Regards Patrick
