LF: 5282 Load from Flash GNU Example

Hi there,

I'm looking for an example of some code that will load any little demo program from external flash and run it. I haven't had any luck getting u-boot to run directly on the M5282EVB board, the conflicting comments saying it both does and doesn't require a boot loader within the same file aren't that helpful either.

I can't seem to be able to find colilo anywhere either, has that just dropped off the face of the earth?

My goal is to be able to boot, grab dhcp address, download uClinux image from the network (or boot from flash version if it is unavailable) and boot uClinux.

I have the m68k-elf-gcc toolchain all setup and working - I can compile u-boot and build uclinux with no issues, and they both run out of SDRAM. It's just the initial part of the boot that is causing me a headache!

Thanks for any info,

James
