Thread-topic: Broadcom Bigsur build
Hello Michael,

Support for bigsur was merged into linux-mips.org some time ago.
There's even a defconfig file for it.

One known issue with running linux though - you need to have the latest
version of CFE installed on the board (1.2.5).

Hope this helps,
Mark

Does anyone have a sample config file for use with 2.6.14.6 that boots a
BigSur board?  I've tried this kernel using the mips patch (via Cross
Linux From Scratch) but the boot locks up right after printing the board
type:

CFE> boot -elf 172.22.251.154:vmlinux-2.6.14.6
Loader:elf Filesys:tftp Dev:eth0 File:172.22.251.154:vmlinux-2.6.14.6
Options:()Loading: 0xffffffff80100000/3596456 0xffffffff8046e0a8/307112
