MPC8555CDS board does not boot 2.6 linux from BPS CD

I have a MPC8555CDS board on which I run Linux 2.4 from a Freescale BPS iso image dated 2005.
However I need it to run Linux 2.6 and I downloaded the BPS iso CD image from this site (dated 17 October 2006, the latest I could find). The flash images provided on this CD do not work i.e. the linux 2.6.11 does not boot. I can boot the linux 2.4 with the filesystem of the 2006 CD but this means mixing different version of kernel and software.

The linux 2.6 does not provide any text output. I can see some led's on the board flickering for 15 secs and that is it.
I am now trying nfs boot instead of ramboot or flashboot, but sofar no luck.

Robert

P.S. I can build new kernels and rootsystems with ltib from the 2006 BSP CD, but no configuration builds a bootable linux.

Could you have an early version of the CDS board that the new BSP isn't tuned for? I believe this BSP was targeted for CDC Ver. 1.1, Carrier Card Ver1.3 and Arcadia X3.1.

Attached is the user's manual for the BSP. Have you verified that your dip switches correspond to the manual?

Paul,

Thanks for the answer.
I believe you are right about versions. I tried the oldest BSP that contains linux 2.6, which is  20050408. The linux from this iso image boots OK!
So I use an 'old' linux and the uboot and rootfs of the latest BSP.

Another question struck me:

Because I cannot build linux with the 20050408 BSP version but I can with the 20061017:

How can I get this latest linux to work on my apparently older board?
What are the differences between CDS 1.0 and 1.1 (from a linux viewpoint)?
