RE: [PPCBoot-users] PPCBoot 1.1.6 now running on 40 MHz mbx860

Saving the default environment sets the CRC, so no more CRC
warning.  The next item on the agenda is getting Linux up on
this target.

Wolfgang -- thanks for the excellent documentation on PPCBoot
on your website.

[PPCBoot-users] Does anyone port PPCBOOT to EST's MDP8XX Pro board?

Hello,
I have the same question as Kang Zang posted on 5/22/2002, but I do not have
his email address so I could not contact him directly. His question was:
This board support MPC801, MPC821/MPC860 and MPC823/MPC850 CPU Module, has
PCI,MII,PCMCIA etc. interface; Or are there some other boards which are
similar to this board? 
Thanks.

How about a STK8xxL  starter  Kit?  Probably  not  similar  from  the
design,  but with most of the features you require: It's based on the
TQM8xxL module (half credit  card  sized,  MPC823/850/855/857/860/862
based, up to 64 MB RAM, up to 8 MB flash, 2 x RS232, 2 x CAN); on the
Starter  Kit  you have access to all bus and I/O pins, Ethernet, USB,
CAN, PCMCIA, LCD, ...

See http://www.denx.de/re/TQM8xxL.html for the module, and  click  on
"Boards" for the starter kit.

Best regards,

Wolfgang Denk

Maybe your TFTP server stopped service TFTP requests?

Attach a sniffer (ethereal) to the net, and check if the TFTP request
is sent on the wire, and if your TFTP server responds...

Re: [PPCBoot-users] Troubles on tftpboot with ppcboot

Sounds like you have a problem with your TFTP server.  Your ethernet 
appears to be working (ARP), but the TFTP isn't.

Suggestions:
* Run ethereal and sniff the packets, see what is going back and forth
* Run a command line tftp and try to get the file you are trying to boot 
(/tftpboot/vmlinux.PPCBoot)
* Check that the file exists, check that permissions are correct, check 
that your server hasn't been "chroot"ed so that the "/tftpboot" part of the 
path is no longer required.

[PPCBoot-users] Does Monta-vista Linux support only 128MB RAM ?

Hi, 

I wonder whether the Monta-vista HHL2.0 Linux support ONLY 128MB RAM.

I see the following code in initdram() of ppcboot 1.1.5 release package for walnut405gp

#ifdef MVISTA_MEM_BUG
        if (TotalSize > 128*1024*1024 )
                TotalSize=128*1024*1024;
#endif

If anyone knows this problem, 
please let me know how to support the bigger than 128MB RAM in Monta-vista HHL2.0 Linux.

Best regards,

Jin Ho Park.

[PPCBoot-users] Warning: real time clock seems stuck!

Hello again
I'm going on with the debug. At the moment i can upload to the board either 
a kernel image or a ramdisk image. When I run the kernel image receive the 
following message 

Warning: real time clock seems stuck! 

and after this the execution stops. Can this be related to the fact that I 
use  the NVRAM for storage the enviroment?? Have I to use flash instead to 
store the ppcboot enviroment variables?
thank for your time
fabio
