kernel boot process hangs after : Now booting the kernel

Respected sir,

I have solved almost every problem but the one with booting kernel is still there.

Actually I'm using EDK 8.2i to built the montavista kernel on the xilinx xup virtex II pro FPGA board as per the tutorial by J. W. Donaldson.
I'm using UARTLite and no ethernet configuration. I have created the system.ace file and put it on the CF card.

Now when I boot the kernel, I get:

loaded at: 00400000 004611E0
board data at: 0045E138 0045E150
relocated to: 00405318 00405330
zimage at: 0040581D 0045D524
avail ram: 00462000 10000000

Linux/PPC load: console=ttyS0,9600
Uncompressing Linux...done.
Now booting the kernel

and then system hangs in windows and reboots in Linux on minicom.
I'm not very sure whether it is crashed or hangs or in infinite loop.

I'm using only 256 MB RAM so that is also not a problem which have been stated for this bug in the tutorial.
I'm stuck up at the point.

Please, please help me.

Best regards

Re: kernel boot process hangs after : Now booting the kernel

We don't support building arch/ppc anymore. You need to move to the new kernel, arch/powerpc, which has been the norm for about a year now.

 

Thanks,

John
