i have tried to run uClinux on the EA-LPC1788 board.

I used the documentation from emcraft.com. I build the bootloader with the SourceryCode crosscompiler.
Then I copy it on the board...that works nicely.

After that I compiled the kernel (found it in emcraft git repository : https://github.com/EmcraftSystems)

i tried the .config that can loaded with: make ea-lpc1788_defconfig

then i compiled it with a busybox binary:
make uImage (in $PATH is the mkimage)

build without problems.

After that I tried to load it on the board via tftp, first i set the env variables,

then i load the kernel : tftp uImage

Download without problems.

Then I'll try to boot the kernel:

The problem is that the board hangs up at "Starting Kernel"

Full output:

## Booting kernel from Legacy Image at 0xa0000000 ...
   Image Name:   Linux-2.6.33-arm1
   Image Type:   ARM Linux Kernel Image (uncompressed)
   Data Size:    1108864 Bytes =  1.1 MB
   Load Address: a0008000
   Entry Point:  a0008001
   Verifying Checksum ... OK
   Loading Kernel Image ... OK

Starting kernel ...

than it hangs up... :/

then i tried to debug the kernel by compiling KernelHacking -> low-level Debug.

After that I got following error:


Starting kernel ...

  R0    = 00000055  R1  = 00000020
  R2    = 00112f20  R3  = 03ffffff
  R12   = 00000024  LR  = a000894d
  PC    = a0008924  PSR = 21000200

What to do to fix this? Can someone send me his .config?

Somebody have an idea?

Kind regards,
