my name is thomas trying to make embedded linux run on a powerpc, but we've got special boards here, although we use a xilinx virtex4 fpga...
as you said in the nabble-thread (see subject), i set up edk9.1 software platform settings und ran libgen to get the xparameters* files. i copied those bsp files into the kernel tree (i use your kernel linux-2.6-virtex from git.secretlabs.ca/git). after configuring the kernel settigs, i try
$ make ARCH=ppc CROSS_COMPILE=powerpc-eabi-
what i get is the following output:
> CHK include/linux/version.h
> CHK include/linux/utsrelease.h
> CALL scripts/checksyscalls.sh
> CHK include/linux/compile.h
> LD init/mounts.o
> powerpc-eabi-ld: cannot find boot.o
> make: *** [init/mounts.o] Error 1
> make: *** [init] Error 2
so, i searched for boot.o (it exists) and even copied it into several dirs of the linux kernel tree (where i thought i would make sense), but the problem still remains.
googling results in
and this, too, doesn't take me further in solving the problem.
i hope you can help me.
many thanks in advance,
