2009-03-08 10:15:01     Kernel cannot start with the bootloader

Hi Mike,

 

      i have down load the uclinux-dist-2007R1-RC3  from your website.And i have install the Redhat Enterprise AS 4.0 system in my computer.I built the  uclinux-dist in my Redhat system and succeed to pass.I have download the uboot-1.1.1

 

to my board :ADI Blackfin533 ezkit. the uboot is provided by the vendor of ADI who send me the board.so i think the uboot is fit to the board and have been ported successfully.

 

    Then i follow the instruction in http://docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/doku.php?id=uclinux-dist:release-notes:2007r1 to download the linux to the board and start the kernel.i can download the linux kernel to the board but cannot start the system

 

on the board now.

 

   when i use the command:

 

  tftp 0x100000 linux

 

   bootelf 0x100000

 

  it returns:

 

  Loading  .text  @  0x00001000 (1097896 bytes)

 

 

 

It  seems   it cannot godown and stop there.

 

What's the problem?Is it because i didn't use the right edition of uboot. i saw in your website said:the 2007R1-RC3 matches  to the uboot1.1.6.  should i upgrade the bootloader from uboot1.1.1 to uboot1.1.6?

 

Thank you for your help!

 

Regards

 

Zhou

HI

 

Robin is right. You should use the later stuff.

 

But there is a significant error in your attempt.

 

 

 

You did this

 

===========================

 

tftp 0x100000 linux

 

   bootelf 0x100000

 

===============================

 

 

 

The kernel will have scribbled all over itself in memory

 

You need to try this

 

=================================

 

tftp 0x1000000 linux

 

   bootelf 0x1000000

 

=================================

 

Think "one and six zeros".

 

Thats how I get my workshop attendees to remember it.
