Linux on MBX board?

Linux on MBX board?

Post by Jose Lopez Serran » Sat, 24 Jan 1998 04:00:00

Does anyone know if Linux has been ported to the new MBX board
from Motorola (the one with MPC860 or MPC821 processors)?

In any case, is there software (free, if possible) for X.25 protocols
for Linux?

Thank you very much for your help.

1. RedHat edk 1.0 (linux) on MBX 860 board

    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:

 EPPC-Bug>pl 20 0

 Linux/PPC load:

 Now booting the kernel

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