Wow, time I updated my skills. So decided to jump to the bottom of the
stack. Linux Kernel Time.
First, the environment.
ixp425 (Now called ixp4xx in most all of the kernel).
A board(Coyote like).
Update from 2.4.x to 2.6.x
So pulled down the kernel.org 2.6.10 and did the two sets of patches cleanly.
Deleted the console= in boot.
Then did a build.
build was clean, but yet, we still are at the
"Uncompressing" Kernel Point.
So have to dig into the early console support of 2.6.10.
Found that the "early" console routines are missing.
So now, pull down the latest from kernel.org
2.6.11-rc2, pre-patch and the incremental.
Now the console routines I was missing are present, and quite
a few other things are there. Now lets wait till I get Home to test.
