RedHat edk 1.0 (linux) on MBX 860 board

Post by Srinivasa T. » Sat, 18 Aug 2001 14:23:18

    I am trying RedHat edk 1.0 on MBX 860 board. My host is redhat 6.2

   I was able to compile the kernel and get zImage and httpd demo
  program compiled using source navigator for the target.

  After that when i boot up the MBX to get the zImage , i am not able
  boot the kernel itself.. It shows the error message:

 Now booting the kernel

     And the target hangs..
     Anybody has any idea what's happening..

     thanx in advane.
