Thread-topic: Problem with binutils
Hi,
 
currently I am using binutils 2.15.97 . I though of upgrade binutils 2.18 
version( assembler 2.15.97 doesn't have support for mip34k specific 
instructions used for SMTC) .package is compiling properly and I am able to 
compile my BSP. But while booting I am unable to detect my embedded rootfs. If 
you do NFS mount it is booting properly 
( I am using .incbin directive  to add my rootfile system and I am suspecting 
problem with incbin directive comes from 2.18 . I am able use same code 
properly with 2.15.97 toolchain. anybody else faced this issue?). 
 
 
One thing I am observing that vmlinux(ELF) built with 2.15.97 contains 39 
section while vmlinux built using 2.18 contains 28 sections only.
I am using GCC 3.4.5 and uClibc. 
 
Somebody please help me
 
Thanks
Anoop
