for the suggestion. In my config only CONFIG_CPU_MIPS32_R1 and CONFIG_SYS_HAS_CPU_MIPS32_R1 are set. Even then, I observe the same
problem. I am enclosing the configuration file along with this mail.
Malta kernels are built from rather old 2.6 sources, so it's not
all the same options are required/possible. The questions that
mind for me are:
booting a big-endian kernel. The Malta board can be set up
for either endianness with a DIP switch, but I believe that it ships
from the factory in little-endian mode. Have you verified that the
You're configuring for hot-pluggable CPUs. That isn't fully
the old source base I've got. It may be fixed in 2.6.14, but do you
actually need it on a Malta?
got support for MIPS MT (the multithreading extension) enabled,
the slave-virtual-processor boot loader, etc. This stuff only works
on a 34K core, and could cause severe problems if invoked on a 4Kc.
least you don't have SMP/SMTC multi-virtual-processor support
enabled, which would *definitely* cause a prompt crash on a 4Kc,
please turn MIPS_MT off. If MIPS MT + VPE loader are
selected options in the default malta config file, it needs to be
