I am trying to get my kernel booting. I had a problem with getting the output of early_printk for version 2.6.29. Now I am getting it, but I still do not understand what is going wrong there.

I have posted my previous issue here.

Here is what I am getting so far:

RedBoot> exec -w 1 -c "init=/linuxrc config_addr=0x00060000:0x20000 root=/dev/hda2 rootfstype=ext2 ro console=ttyS2,38400 panic=5 debug earlyprintk" About to start execution at 0xa0008000 - abort with ^C within 1 seconds Using base address 0xa0100000 and length 0x001d2e48 Linux version 2.6.29-custom (andy@andy-VirtualBox) (gcc version 4.8.2 (GCC) ) #1 Tue Jul 4 12:21:55 EEST 2017 CPU: XScale-PXA270 [69054117] revision 7 (ARMv5TE), cr=0000397f CPU: VIVT data cache, VIVT instruction cache Machine: ANDY electronics PXA270 processor module Memory policy: ECC disabled, Data cache writeback On node 0 totalpages: 16384 free_area_init_node: node 0, pgdat c03b7c7c, node_mem_map c043f000 Normal zone: 128 pages used for memmap Normal zone: 0 pages reserved Normal zone: 16256 pages, LIFO batch:3 Run Mode clock: 208.00MHz (*16) Turbo Mode clock: 520.00MHz (*2.5, active) Memory clock: 208.00MHz (/1) System bus clock: 208.00MHz Built 1 zonelists in Zone order, mobility grouping on.

Can maybe someone say what can it be or where should I put my focus?

  • where should I put my focus, In looking at 4.x version – UVV Jul 4 '17 at 11:33
  • @UVV thanks, but have described it in comments of the link above. I could not change the bootloader, and it will work only for versions under 2.6 as I understood. Or with some hacking like appending device tree to the kernel and skipping mach_id – AndrewH Jul 4 '17 at 11:39
