Thumbs up problem in gdb-armulator


hai i am using vmware machine for linux. recently i have untared the uClinux dist-20051014 patch. taken out the existing kernel and added new kernel linux-2.6.5.tar.bz2,renamed to linux-2.6.x
thats all went fine.
i took the "getting started to gdb armulator asthe reference. i carefully followed the guidelines.
observation 1: the arm-elf tool chain was successfully loaded in to usr/local/bin
observation-2:when i set the directory uclinux-20051014 for make menuconfig,it askd for several configuration settings
say for example
vendor:armulator,product:gdb-armulator
(linux-2.6.x) Kernel Version
(uClibc) Libc Version [*] Default all settings (lose changes) (NEW) [*] Customize Kernel Settings (NEW) [*] Customize Vendor/User Settings (NEW) [*] Update Default Vendor Settings (NEW)
In “General setup” menu, there is “Default kernel command string”. Change this to:

root=/dev/ram0 initrd=0x01300000,800K keepinitrd
[root@hyoklinux uClinux-dist]# make

when i "make "the whole kernel it took a big process of compilation,finally posted me the following error
[root@hyoklinux uClinux-dist]# make

Now ... I have no experience with ARM, cross-compilation
or anything the like ... but what kind of file was your
new kernel, and how did you install it? Obviously
Quote:
/usr/local/bin/arm-elf-ld.real: cannot open arch/arm/boot/compressed/font.o: No such file or directory
the tool-chain fails for find an architecture specific
file?



Cheers,
Tink

Installing uclinux on ubuntu.

Hi,


Just i followed the folllowing link to install uclinux on ubuntu.


http://opensrc.sec.samsung.com/Getti...nuxARM2_6.html


as per that link following thing showing.

(linux-2.6.x) Kernel Version
(uClibc) Libc Version [*] Default all settings (lose changes) (NEW) [*] Customize Kernel Settings (NEW) [*] Customize Vendor/User Settings (NEW) [*] Update Default Vendor Settings (NEW)

But for me except (NEW) and * remaining is coming like following,Iam unable to select customize kernal setting and iam unable to find “General setup” menu, there is “Default kernel command string”. Change this to:

root=/dev/ram0 initrd=0x01300000,800K keepinitrd .where is the mistake? i want to work with ARM board.

(linux-2.6.x) Kernel Version
(uClibc) Libc Version
[] Default all settings (lose changes)
[] Customize Kernel Settings
[] Customize Vendor/User Settings
[] Update Default Vendor Settings
