[ECOS] Floppy Image
Wed May 14 08:07:00 GMT 2003
I built eCos library for i386 PC. Then i compiled the sample programs in
examples dir in ecos distribution.I then used the commands
$fdformat /dev/fd0 - to format a floppy disk
$i386-elf-objcopy -O binary hello app.bin
$dd conv=sync if=app.bin of=/dev/fd0
as specified in the documents.
But when i tried to boot with the floppy disk to test the 'hello' sample
program,it doesn't happen.
After i get 'Verifying DMI pool data' the system just hangs.
When i built redboot using configtool and did the above steps on the
resultant reboot.elf i had the same problem.
I even tried changing the floppy.
What could be wrong.Please advice.
