your prom is too old to understand ELF files. To solve this problem you
need either a newer prom or an Indy kernel in ECOFF format.
I've successful booted a converted kernel a few minutes ago and will upload
this kernel to
Please try it.
I've created it with a modified elf2ecoff tool from the kernel sources
on the Indy itself (it works only when used on a machine with the same
endian as the kernel). I look into fixing byte ordering problems in elf2ecoff
to allow even cross compiling of kernels on opposite endian machines.
This device has completely bogus header. Compaq scores again :-|
It's a host bridge, but it should be called ghost bridge instead ;^)
