It would be great if I could get a few hints on how to get Linux
running on one of these old gt64120 based PCI eval cards from Galileo.
I know these cards are quite old and crufty but since I see evidence
of support in the kernel I thought I'd ask if anyone still uses the
Currently I have an ev-64120 inserted into a passive PCI backplane and
have access to pmon over the serial port.
I expect that I should be able to cross compile the kernel, with the
ev-64120 board support enabled, and convert the resulting elf into
srec format for loading via pmon (ouch). However, I'm not sure what
to do for providing a root filesystem or even how one should specify
kernel command line parameters.
I'm wondering if it's feasible to put a supported NIC in the PCI
passive backplane with the ev-64120 and provide a suitable root file
system over a network connection? I'm not aware if the linux kernel
can perform the PCI configuration (setting up the PCI base address
Any way, if anyone has gone down this ev-64120 path I'd greatly
appreciate hearing any suggestions, even if they are along the lines
of "abandon all hope". :)
