First of all, sorry for asking a slightly off topic question on that
list but it has something to do with MIPS and Linux though.
As I don't have a working zboot image, I am trying to load zboot or
yamon via JTAG to a SMP8634 board in order to boot Linux afterwards. I
followed the instructions described in smp8634-documentation and was
able to build a yamon and reboot image which successfully loads on a
plain smp8634. Unfortunately, this is not the case when building yamon
with XENV support or when trying to load a zboot image instead. On the
other hand I can't load Linux on a yamon without XENV support, yet.
After loading xboot which fails to load zboot now, do I have to
initialize the memory mapping or other registers prior loading any other
code like yamon or zboot? If so, which one?
Any help to load Linux is very appreciated.
