I have been able to boot linux on mips idt cpu , but it gets
hanged while execving the "/bin/sh" in init/main.c.
it hangs after "submit_bh(READ...)" called from
also if i use debugging functions like show_trace() or
show_stack() it reports
unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address
and then oops process name it reports is "swapper".
this virtual address 000000c8 is quite strange.
as kernel starts from 0x80000000 onwards.
can initrd be faulty someway to cause this?
i have taken initrd from some other source which i amn't sure
whether it is was compiled little or big endian.
my kernel is compiled with "mips-linux-" the big endian toolchain
anybody can share source for minimal rootfilesystem
so that i can compile appropiately and check.
