2009-03-03 08:08:29     CM-BF537E: not seeing kernel command line

Newbie question: I've got u-boot successfully booting uCLinux from a TFTP server. I'm now trying to modify the u-boot build so that this happens automatically. I'm flashing the u-boot hex loader using VDSP.


I've set






in cm-bf537e.h


I would like u-boot to pass the IP configuration to the kernel using the command line. However, the command line is just reading "console=ttyBF0,115200". There is a kernel panic because the root fs is not being passed in (I think it should be "root=/dev/mtdblock0 rw")


As far as I can see, the correct commands are being created in bfin_adi_common.h (CONFIG_BOOTARGS, NETWORK_ENV_SETTINGS, etc.), however these are somehow not making it to the kernel command line.


Could someone more familiar with the build setup maybe advise what I should check? Thanks for any advice.

did you compile the command line into the kernel ?


how exactly are you booting (what image file are you using) ?
