I m a newbie to kernel programming. I am trying to boot the kernel 2.6.36 on my ECG machine.It was working perfectly on It is getting stuck on this step:

## Booting kernel from Legacy Image at 81000000 ...
   Image Name:

   Image Type:   MIPS Linux Kernel Image (gzip compressed)                      
   Data Size:    1974278 Bytes =  1.9 MB                                        
   Load Address: 80100000                                                       
   Entry Point:  80104730                                                       
   Verifying Checksum ... OK                                                    
   Uncompressing Kernel Image ... OK                                            

Starting kernel ...   

After this the system either resets or it hangs. I have also checked the configuration & set it properly.Please let me know.

Never say that "I checked the configuration and it is correct." If it doesn't work, how can you be sure the configuration is correct? – Greg Hewgill Dec 27 '10 at 6:53
Need more info. What arguments are you passing the kernel? – Thanatos Dec 27 '10 at 6:53
