I am unable to get my kernel & initrd off of the usb stick. I was
through the documents and came across this line in
You can not use filo and ide_disk at the same time.
Can you tell me what this means? Do I need to rebuild filo without
support to get USB support?
Just to recap: My kernel & initrd fails as the initrd execution
a bad CRC when I use the elf as a payload to load with with filo. I
uda1:/kernel initrd=/boot/initrd root=/dev/sda1 and I get those td
errors. I then
tried your ramfs.elf and I get the same behavior are my elf image with
complaining when the initrd portion is executed. Note, I have confirmed
works with etherboot, just not filo yet....
The CRC error makes me think that the image did not get loaded
by the elf boot. Can you confirm you used Eric's mkelfImage2-5? Here
my dump of the readelf -a.

Yes, I did, but I don't have a DHCP environment so it kept searching
at the DHCP phase.
This problem is odd. I can boot my elf fine with etherboot, but not
with filo. I can boot
my kernel fine with filo, but not the initrd. I can even boot your
kernel of the ram.elf you
sent me, but when it hits the initrd it fails with the same error as
I suspect either my filo is not configured like yours or that there
is a problem loading a
mulitpart elf (kernel & initrd in filo). I'm confused as to why filo
didn't just use the etherboot
portion of elf_load. It could be you were on the, "bleeding" edge?
Can you tell me how much memory you have in your working system? I
one cpu and 512meg memory. Curious if loading it high & it runs out
of memory or
something like that.
