at the moment I run a 18.104.22.168 on this core. Because of some trouble
with the USB 2.0 EHCI controller (which is wired on the internal PCI
bus) I am thinking about running a more recent kernel.
It was easy to build linux-22.214.171.124 based on the db1550_defconfig using
the mips_4KCle-gcc (gcc version 4.0.0 (DENX ELDK 4.1 4.0.0)) toolchain.
But I see nothing on the serial console after starting the kernel. Some
time ago (10 month I think) I was testing the head of the git mips
kernel and the system was booting with some trouble on the pci bus but I
was able so see someting on the serial console.
A quick search on this list show me
the last activity on the alchemy chip.
I just want to ask who is working with the au1550 on a more recent
kernel than 126.96.36.199.
I'll start now with some early printk to solve booting problems and than
we will see .....
