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 ?
Here is the information regarding my Malta board

Board type/revision =           0x02 (Malta) / 0x00
Core board type/revision =      0x01 (CoreLV) / 0x01
FPGA revision =                 0x0001
MAC address =                   00.d0.a0.00.03.22

First free SDRAM address = 0x8009e0d0

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
