The cross compile tool I am using is:
binutils-mips64el-linux-2.13.1-1.i386.rpm

Here is a section from  Linux makefile ./arch/mips64/Makefile, which I
don't quite understand:

# The 64-bit ELF tools are pretty broken so at this time we generate
64-bit
# ELF files from 32-bit files by conversion.
#
ifdef CONFIG_BOOT_ELF64
CFLAGS += -Wa,-32
LINKFLAGS += -T arch/mips64/ld.script.elf32
#AS += -64
#LD += -m elf64bmip
#LD += -m elf64ltsmip
#LINKFLAGS += -T arch/mips64/ld.script.elf64
endif



When I tried to compile with this configuration, I received the following
error:

Then, I tried to comment out the 32-bit stuff and uncomment the 64-bit
stuff in the Makefile to

ifdef CONFIG_BOOT_ELF64
#CFLAGS += -Wa,-32
#LINKFLAGS += -T arch/mips64/ld.script.elf32
AS += -64
LD += -m elf64bmip
LD += -m elf64ltsmip
LINKFLAGS += -T arch/mips64/ld.script.elf64
endif

The compile went successfully, and 'vmlinus.sre' is created.  However, I
cannot successfully download it to the SEAD board, maybe because of the
64-bit elf format that the tools cannot support?


I need someone to point me to the right direction.  What exactly do I
need to do to make this to work?


Thanks,
qfan
