I am trying to install linux on the Atmel's Evaluation Kit. Here is what I have done; currently I am stuck and need help.
I downloaded sources and compiled a 2.4 ARM Linux kernel with no support for Ramdisk. I moved the zImage to the memory of the Evaluation Board and tried to boot it from U Boot.
I get bad magic number error message.
I am trying to install an operating system and write some code for the serial communications. I do not know, if I need a bootloader or a file system. I am not sure how to approach this subject. I also have not been able to find adequate help or guides online. Please help me.
I have set up gentoo on my pc and server before. I never had need for ram disk, and I am not sure what I need to get my board to load linux.
Thanks in advance
