Note I generally don't test with HJ.Lu's toolchain at all.  It may be
broken for MIPS, I don't know.  Also due to known bugs in older toolchains
the minimal requirement is binutils 2.16; the vanilla FSF version from will do.

(2.15 will core dump for some configurations but if it doesn't die, it seems
to do just fine)

Thanks for the reply. I observed the same problem  even when compiled with tool chain based on gcc 3.4.4 binutils 2.15.97 and uclibc- 0.9.27. I 'll try with binutils 2.16. Please note that my malta is based on 4kc but not 4kec.

Let's see.  What CPU card are you using on your Malta?  And if it's an
FPGA card, what bitfile is loaded?  Yamon will print information on the
CPU after powerup or reset.


Here are the details of my malta board.

Board type/revision =           0x02 (Malta) / 0x00
Core board type/revision =      0x01 (CoreLV) / 0x01
FPGA revision =                 0x0001
MAC address =                   00.d0.a0.00.03.22
Board S/N =                     0000000554
PCI bus frequency =             33.33 MHz
Processor Company ID/options =  0x01 (MIPS Technologies, Inc.) / 0x00
Processor ID/revision =         0x80 (MIPS 4Kc) / 0x05
Endianness =                    Big
CPU/Bus frequency =             125 MHz / 63 MHz
Flash memory size =             4 MByte
SDRAM size =                    64 MByte
First free SDRAM address =      0x8009e380
