U-boot expects uImage format for the kernel image.


In order for LTIB to generate a uImage file:

$ export SYSCFG_KTARG=uImage
$ ./ltib -p kernel

Setup in U-Boot the kernel bootargs:

u-boot> setenv bootargs noinitrd console=ttymxc0,115200 init=/linuxrc root=/dev/nfs nfsroot= ip=dhcp

Change to your host IP.


The procedure above is needed when default bootloader used by ltib was redboot.
In some ltib releases (before 2010) default bootloader is u-boot. In this case, ltib will create uImage by default
