No, It was another "hello" application. I am not able to make eCos 
application run if I make a RAM
configuration and directly download the application into the RAM of the 
EPXA1,... i think it is because
there is no .init stuff... :-(
I also tried to load redboot, but till the moment i had no success. I 
cannot compile a ROM configuration
of redboot since it seems that it miss some .ldi or .h files for ROM 
configuration in the EPXA1 package.
 Did you compiled redboot with this package? I also doubt about the 
steps that i have to do later with
quartus tools, but i think they are somehow mechanical (generate .sbi, 
.sbd files and merge them with
the redboot.hex generated, isn't it? Any help (as many detailed as 
possible) would be quite valuable for me.
