Thread: Linux on a IXDP465 ?

  1. Linux on a IXDP465 ?

    Hi all!

    I tried to port the Snapgear Linux kernel on a IXDP465 board.

    I installed the toolchain provided on the snapgear website (the one for
    Xscale/ARM) and I compiled succesfully.

    However, when I start Linux on the machine (by issuing the "load"
    command of both the kernel and the ramdisk, followed by a "go" command)
    the machine hangs without any message.

    It could be an endianess problem.

    Did somebody succesfully ported a Linux kernel on this architecture ?
    If so, which toolchain and kernel were used ?

    Any suggestion is welcome!

    Many thanks,

    Claudio

    Hi Claudio,

    Which SnapGear linux release are you using?
    Version 3.3.0 has support for the Intel IXDP465 board already - just
    select the Intel/IXDP465 target with either 2.4 or 2.6 kernel.
    Make sure you have the arm-linux-tools-20051123.tar.gz toolchain.
