Finally, I could compile vmlinux. I thought of booting this RAM image (or its SREC equivalent) using the onboard YAMON (in BIG endian mode - I am having trouble building Redboot in BIG endian mode <issue ported at ecos forum>, so for now thought of using YAMON). After downloding the vmlinux.srec over the serial port (Starting at 0x80100000), I issued the go command to run the image. I get the following message:

The linux image started fine, but caused an exception after a while. Is this because Linux is not compatible with YAMON? If so, what are the possible monitor programs that can go with Linux? Please point me to the documents in this regard (documents on running Linux executable on Atlas 4Kc board).

Or will Linux work with any ROM monitor? If so, please let me know the reason for the exception.

Thanks a lot,
