When trying to bring up Malta (4KC) board with 2.4.33-rc1 from linux-mips,
the kernel crashes. Boot log is enclosed along with this mail.
Could yoy try this kernel ?
It known to work with GXEmul Malta emulatort and on the real Malta Bonito.
What is your version of the Malta CoreCard ? See there for more info:
Thanks for your mail. My board is coming up with this kernel image.
May I know, whether you have done any changes in linux 2.4.33-rc2 ?

It's a latest 2.4 kernel from the linux-mips GIT w/o any modification.
Note, it's a generic mips-linux kernel, not a special mips-malta.
My toolchain is gcc 3.3.6 from the Buildroot-20060523 snapshot.
There were some modification made between 2.4.32 and 2.4.33-pre2 :
1) The MIPS32 FPU save-restore support. There was no MIPS32
support in the 2.4 before the 2.4.33-pre2.
2) PCI and PC-style COM-port issue resolved
