You need to run the 2.4.x kernel to get the latest support.  I have
2.4.0-test7 runing on the SBC8260, but 2.4.0-test8-pre1 panics during
startup.  I have been getting my kernels from the Linux/PPC BitKeeper
Repository at FSMLabs (

For a nice packaged solution, I would go to MontaVista
( and get the Linux Support Package from the
CDK version 1.2 ( for the SBC8260.

Look for *sbc8260*
