Have anybody confirmed stability of binutils for big endian
while little endian gives me no problem
but i am simply unable to make a working big endian ramdisk.
specific problem is in identifying the e_type and e_machine fields
in elf header of executables.
expected value of e_type is 0x2(ET_EXEC) amd e_machine is
but those are read as 0x200 and 0x800 respectivly ..this is
obviously the endianness problem.
I have tried big endian ramdisk from
and also tried compiling one using uclibc package , both
failed because of same reason.
when i run file command on those executables after mounting the
ramdisk on my host i get o/p like
ELF 32-bit LSB executable, MIPS R3000_BE - invalid byte order,
version 1, statically linked, stripped
though i see lot of mails regarding "invalid byteorder" but I
didn't find specific suggestions.
if somebody has experienced similar problems , pls. give me
