Hello all,

After having shelved the FADS board for a couple of weeks, we dug it out
again and tried to install ppcboot (ver 0.7.1). We used the cross compiler
that comes with hardhat and set the makefile appropriately. The build went
smoothly, with the odd warning popping up. As noted in the doc, downloading
the image is another story. We used the Motorola ADI port to upload the
kernel and to start execution.... unfortunately it doesn't get far ;-D

Here is the dump of attempt number 2 (this time using the ELF binary)

f860TBug> loadf PPCBOOT 3000

I know others are using the 860T FADS board, so rather struggle.... Some

What methods are you using to upload binaries?
Have you experienced similar problems?
  Or  have we just done something silly?

Thanks for the help
