    Hello,
    Probably the answer that's why I can't see it ;-) but
    - I successfully compile the 2.6.4 version of uml with ARCH=um etc..
    Now when I try to execute it it gave me
    bash: /usr/bin/vmlinux: cannot execute binary
    The only info I got on the net was it could be triing to run a 64 bit version !! Is this possible ?
    Do somebody knows what i'm missing ?.

    ps I'm running a gentoo 2.6.5(mmsources) gcc 3.3.3 glibc 2.3.3

    Thanks in advance,
    hangerman

      can you 'ldd' your umlinux ? - this will tell you if you can load umlinux correctly

      you need a root filesystem on which to start your umlinux

      your umlinux must be made executable (chmod +x)

      btw. Congratulations on your gentoo build !!

      Yes,
      ldd
      >not a dynamic executable
      > you need a root filesystem on which to start your umlinux
      that was done ..
      >your umlinux must be made executable (chmod +x)
      ..of course
      Probleme is somewhere else .. I'll continue to try but any suggestion is welcome
