well alot of hacking left to do, but kernel is actually booting
This is just awesome
Hi Jens. I'm just spinning-up a 2.6.24 kernel on a powerpc MPC5200 board. After some wrestling I got to EXACTLY the place you did: successful boot but with a VERY long delay between apparant kernel load by u-boot and console output.
Have you had any luck solving this delay problem? Can you offer me some advice?

Synology DS-101g+ seem to be very similar at our DSMG600 and it have a 2.6 kernel.. this can help?
I am a old time coreboot developer and I have done a fair share of device hacking in my day. I just picked up a DSM-G600 for a fun side project. I was pretty disappointed in how limited the original u-boot is on this little box. So...
I plan on building a current dsmg600 target board for u-boot and hopefully i can get it approved to submit it to the u-boot repository. I don't know if any of you know but all the original d-link files for u-boot and Linux can be found on the d-link GPL website:
I have taken the d-link u-boot source and diff'd it to the original u-boot 0.2.0, so know I know what changes need to be made to get a full current version of u-boot running on this little box. Haha the d-link developers sure did alot of improper code hacking..... Any ways I am attaching the diff in case your interested in checking it out. So at this point I am going through all the diff code and compairing it to the most current version of you boot to see what needs to be changed.
Also I found this webpage on howto jtag a aMPC824x (sandpoint) board using a ByteBlaster cable and UrJTAG.
I have ordered my ByteBlaster jtag cable, just waiting for it to come, hopefully I wont need it but just in case i brick the board, lol.
Also because the chipset supports dual IDE channel I ordered a CF IDE Adapter and CF card, I should be able to setup a master/slave config. I hope the CF and IDE hard drive will bot be able to fit in the case? I will be using it to develop a Modern embedded Linux OS for this little box. Because the 2.6 kernel will probably be too large to fit in flash it and the ram-disk will either boot from CF or USB possibly?
Anyways Thank you very much for your hard work on getting the jtag up and running jens! Much appreciated
