What I see on the Hyperterminal screen when both kernel and rootfs has been downloaded and board is restarted is

Subject: [Gumstix-users] Problem with board bootup. (Any help appreciated)


I am new in the world of Gumstix. I have my Gustix verdex pro board delivered at my place and now I am trying to get it up and running.

I have referred to wiki pages on Gumstix site which instruct on downloading new rootfs and uimages on the board using serial connection. I am using Hyperterminal with Kermit protocol to download these images.

I am in possession of LCP Pro pack with Gumstix Verdex pro XL6P and I am using prebuilt images from

But everytime I am getting an error(attached is the screenshot for error).

Does anyone of you have seen this problem and know the solution? Am I doing anything wrong? (I am following exact steps mentioned on Gumstix wiki page)

Any guidance comments are appreciated. I just need to get my board booting by any means :(

Thanks in advance.
