MicroBlaze and OpenSourceLinux : failed to download ELF file

Jump to solution

Hi

I'm a newbie to Linux. I'm trying to run the Xilinx Open Source Linux for MicroBlaze on ML405. I followed the step described on the wiki page. Please find attached the mhs and mss files of the project and the device-tree generated by EDK.

I've selected the "Platform options" in the kernel configuration and I've set the Physical Addres where Linux is at the base address of the DDR processor memory (0x80000000); I also changed all the other parameters according to the hardware configuration. Then I successfully build the kernel.

Anyway, when I try to download the image, xmd displays that all the sections are located starting from 0xc0000000 which is of course not accessible from processor I-side interface; so image is not downloaded. Please can somebody help me?

Regards

 Mariano

instead of invoking xmd from the xps gui, try running from the command line:

 

> xmd

 

%XMD> conncect mb mdm

%XMD> dow simpleImage.... 

 

See if that gets you any further..

What you're seeing in XMD is normal with the C000 0000 address. If you use obdjump to dump the headers (-h) you'll see that there are physical and virtual addresses for the eolf file and the physical address will match your memory (hopefully).

 

Did XMD give you an error or you just thought it was not right?

 

You should be able to run the kernel.  I pasted in one of my xmd sessions below to illustrate what I mean.

 

Thanks.

Thanks toneal,

now xmd does not report the error and the file is downloaded to memory. Unfortunately I see no boot message on the serial port; can you suggest me what I can check?

Hi, Mariano,

 

I think I also stuck at the same place.

 

I am trying to port 'linux-2.6-xlnx.git' obtained from git.xilinx.com to my XUPV5-LX110T board. I also follow all the steps within the page 'Microblaze Linux ' on xilinx.wikidot.com and set the  'Physical Addres where Linux is' accoring to my design but still get no output in my terminal window.

 

Did you succeed? If so, can you give me some advice?

 

Regards,

 

Yang
