I'm working on some project where I'm using the Beagle board - xM Rev C. Power supply is 5V/2A adapter. My task is porting Linux Angstrom on the board but I have some problems. I have choosen Linux 2.6.32. I found a milion tutorials how to run Linux on the BeagleBoard-xM (BB) (for instance on this blog) using prebuild images (from Narcissus or downloaded from git repo) but no one has explained how to run Linux which I was build with cross compiler. I need to change the Linux kernel, build it and run it on the BB-xM Rev C. Problem has appeared when I copied uImage on the SD card of the BB. When I powered up my board, booting process stops on

Uncompressing Linux........... done, booting kernel

uImage was build with

make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi- uImage

Linux was configured with omap3_beagle_defconfig config file which is intended for the BB-xM. My uEnv.txt file have following content:

dvimode="hd720 omapfb.vram=0:8M,1:4M,2:4M" 
console="tty0 console=ttyO2,115200n8"

NOTE: I have only connected on the BB power supply, serial and ethernet cable, nothing more.

Does anyone have any idea or advice? Where I'm wrong? How to debug?

I'm solved my problem with booting Linux kernel (2.6.38) on the Beagle board - xM Rev C following this: veter-project.blogspot.com/2012/03/… I hope this will help someone... Cheers – gaja88 Apr 12 '13 at 7:13

Try to enable the low level debugging options in the kernel and try to boot, And then let me know the problem where it is actually hanging.
