If I compile a kernel for the platforms CHRP/PowerMac/PReP, than there
are several images in linux/arc/ppc/boot/images:

miboot.image:     executable (RISC System/6000 V3.1) or obj module not stripped
vmlinux.coff:     executable (RISC System/6000 V3.1) or obj module not stripped
vmlinux.elf-pmac: ELF 32-bit MSB executable, PowerPC or cisco 4500, version 1 (SYSV), statically linked, not stripped
vmlinux.gz:       gzip compressed data, from Unix, last modified: Thu Feb 23 00:52:07 2006, max compression
zImage.chrp:      ELF 32-bit MSB executable, PowerPC or cisco 4500, version 1 (SYSV), statically linked, not stripped
zImage.chrp-rs6k: ELF 32-bit MSB executable, PowerPC or cisco 4500, version 1 (SYSV), statically linked, not stripped
zImage.elf:       ELF 32-bit MSB executable, PowerPC or cisco 4500, version 1 (SYSV), statically linked, not stripped

I think you have just chosen the wrong one.


Hope, that it helps,
