Kernel Oops

Question asked by michael carrier on Jan 29, 2016

Our custom board was designed based on the imx6ulevk. One difference between our design and the EVK is the amount of DDR on our custom board. To test changes before attempting to run on our board I first load the sd card onto the EVK. If I take the SDcard image generated by yocto build bitbake fsl-image-machine-test an burn it to an sd card, load the card onto the EVK, the EVK boots into linux as expected. I then change uboot's PHYS_SDRAM_SIZE from SZ_512M to say SZ_256M then build fsl-image-machine-test and load that SD image onto the EVK, the EVK boots into linux but the kernel then oopses :
