[Freescale P2020DS] Porting linux kernel 2.6.27


I'd like to install a linux kernel 2.6.27 on my P2020DS board. Actually, the baseline kernel version is

So i have downloaded on my kernel, I have copied the p2020ds_def_config (provided with the board and kernel and renamed it to .config in the folder of 2.6.27 kernel

Then, make CROSS_COMPILE=powerpc-none-linux-gnuspe- ARCH=powerpc uImage ...

I copied uImage in the /boot directory

Reboot. . . .

Uboot prompt :

#setenv bootargs root=/dev/sda3 rw console=tty0

#ext2load scsi 0:3 0x1000000 /boot/uImage

xxxxx bytes read

#ext2load scsi 0:3 0xc00000 /boot/ramdisk

xxxxx bytes read

bootm 0x1000000 0xc00000

Does anyone have any idea why the kernel doesn't boot?
