I've been constantly uploading changes into the git repositoy the
Now the second stage boot loader that gets loaded before the kernel
when using MkLinux Booter finally modifies the flat device tree to
pass ramdisk parameters, kernel command line, memory and display
device configuration to the kernel. No more hacking inside the kernel
Also there are two new build targets: MachKernel and
MachKernel.initrd. Using these two one can build exculsively Mach
Kernel images, with ramdisk attached or without.
The process of building Mach Kernel images is now integrated into the
standard kernel image building process - although a rather hacky way.
However until now neither booting via ramdisk nor via hard disk works
on my PB1400. In the hard disk case it might be that my old Debian
Sarge installation isn't compatible with linux 2.6.30 but in the
ramdisk case I get a DATA ACCESS exception, related to kernel memory
Some tips regarding these errors?
I Could need some help with that!
Yet to do is choosing between device trees inside the second stage
boot loader according to the machine type (Gestalt ID).
