Linux Kernel v2.6.15

Here is a 2.6.15 kernel, built from unmodified source code found here.

(this latest image adds CONFIG_MATH_EMULATION, CONFIG_I2C, CONFIG_CRAMFS, CONFIG_DEVFS_FS, and CONFIG_PACKET)

This kernel works with ppcboot 1.1.6 or the U-Boot bootloader available [wiki:DHT-Walnut-U-Boot here].

The following things have been tested and all seem to work:

  • 10/100 Ethernet port
  • IDE with drives on /dev/hda and /dev/hdb
  • Firewire with the PCI card sold with the DHT-Walnut. I tested a Firewire DVD-writer.
  • USB with an PCI OHCI adapter
  • Console on Matrox video FB using a USB keyboard
  • NFS root filesystem
  • standalone system with root=/dev/hda1 and matrox fb console with usb keyboard.

All the on-board hardware seems to be supported by the vanilla 2.6.15 kernel.

Note: To set the Linux console baud rate to 115200, add "console=ttyS0,115200" to the U-Boot bootargs environment variable.

Please let me know of any success or issues you encounter. dale-elinux@farnsworth.org.
