I successfully cross compiled with LTIB the linphone application from the website.
I downloaded the kernel on the board, the problem is that the rootfs.jffs2 is to big to fit on the NOR flash...

So i tried to boot from nfs...
My daemon nfs is working correctly because i can mount it from a distant computer...
But I am not able to do it from the iMX27 board

Here is what i did :
fis load kernel
exec -c "root=/dev/nfs nfsroot= console=ttymxc0  ip="

here is what i get :

eth0: using half-duplex 10Base-T (RJ-45)

IP-Config: Complete:

      device=eth0, addr=, mask=, gw=,

     host=imx27, domain=, nis-domain=(none),

     bootserver=, rootserver=, rootpath=
