After messing with the bootloader yesterday I finally managed to update it to a reasonably recent version.
However I lost the beautiful blackfin logo.
So I started looking around and in include/configs/bf527-ezkit.h i found the define for CONFIG_VIDEO commented out.
Enabling it causes a build error
make bf527-ezkit_config make all ....... u-boot.ldr exceeds file size limit: limit: 262144 bytes actual: 273844 bytes excess: 11700 bytes make: *** [u-boot.ldr] Error 1
So splash screen image has been put into ldr making it exceed its limits.
This leads me to the conclusion, I am doing something wrong..
So what is the proper way of re-enabling the default Blackfin splash screen in u-boot?
