NAND support for OMAP5912

hi 

I am working on omap5912 (LDK5912 board) using u-boot .Is that possible
to load the kernel through NAND flash using u-boot.U-boot is having that
support omap5912 configuartion of u-boot doesn't have that support.

Any one can suggest me how to use the the kernel through NAND flash
using u-boot.

Thanks 
Priya

I recommend to use the existing log device; note that it is
compatible with Linux's syslog mechanism.

You can also store it in flash memory, or on some storage device, of
course.

This is documented in the doc/README.standalone file; no linking is

Re: stand alone application


Thank you for the reply and the direction. I am a novice in U_boot, though I
have some prior experience in working on other boot codes.

There is still another outstanding question that I would like to raisie,
however. In the Standalone-README file, it states that for PowerPC, the load
adress is 0x00040000, and the start address is 0x00040004. On the board that
I am working on, those two addresses aren't available. Is that a way for me
to have the load address and the start address to be RELOCATED to addresses
that fall within the aforementioned range? Any comment would be greatly
welcomed. Thanks.

Best Regards,

Kow9loon

Re: stand alone application


After giving the matter some more thoughts, another question also comes into
mind:

How could I ensure that control is passed to the entry point of my
standalone application, which I designate, running in the PowerPC
environment, if the start address is confined to 0x00040000? I would expect
that, some how, the standalone application has to inform U_boot where the
start address is, before U_boot could get to the correct entry point. Please
correct me if I am wrong. Thank you again.

Regards,

Kow9loon

build u-boot for ns9750dev

hi,

i'm trying to built u-boot for the ns9750dev board (actually for the
softgun simulator). u-boot v1.1.6 contains the file
include/configs/ns9750dev and the directory board/ns9750dev , but the
makefile doesn't contain the target ns9750dev_config. does this mean
that ns9750dev support is still in an experimental phase or is there
another way of building it?

thanks in advance

m.

Chose any other free address you like, then.

No relocation is done here. You link for a fixed address.

You enter the correct entry point address as argument of the go
command. You are expected to know what you are doing.

Did you bother to read the FAQ? I guess not. See especially

Yes - I meant "I have seen your patches, added them to my list & will look
at them as time allows"
Rather than "I will be asking WD to merge these patches shortly...."
I'll use "Seen" in future.....

The most important patch is the at45 patch, which was submitted
before and the decision then (after long discussion) 
was to leave this to your discretion.
