Re: aboot and the new binutils?

I'm attempting to build/test the rc1 of 2.6.23 from kernel.org.

I have built it with both gcc3.4 and 4.1 using the binutils from unstable.

The last kernel I built from kernel.org (and the kernel I am running) is 2.6.21-rc5 (using gcc4). I built that before I updated the binutils. I would expect for there to be at least a few lines output to the console before the boot fails, instead
I get the "uncompressing" message and it just hangs at that point.

I did notice via a google search that the gentoo/alpha port has been having issues
with aboot and newer kernels.

At this point I am rebuilding the kernel I have been using since April using my current toolchain.

I'll keep you posted.


This was bnuilt

I get no feedback from the booting kernel - it just kinda hangs.

I'm wondering if aboot is incompatible with the images being
generated with the binutils from unstable.

No, it's not.

Please define "updated kernel", and indicate which kernels have worked for
you on this system in the past.
