- Subject: Re: [ECOS] Redboot customization for DOCMP?
My embedded device is based on Intel's xscale
PXA255 processor(ARM compatible). I want to have my
firmware, linux OS and filesystem in diskonchip
I planeed as follows. Write a IPL code to bring
the SPL(Redboot) into SDRAM and give it control.
Redboot shall brng the OS into SDRAm and give it
Seeing the patch i stood that it is for x86
systems, with int 19h handler we can load the SPL...
I dont know how to do with arm? Does redboot
knows how to bring the OS from diskonchip millennium
plus into sdram or should I provide support for it?
Can u correct me if I have a wrong idea somewhare and
make me proceed in the right direction?
Thanks in advance.
