    I am trying to test a "release" version of my platform by building "release" version and then just loading it into ram via logic loader but when I do this it runs very slow.

    Here is the output from logic loader

    I am wondering about the "link_for_flash" statement and if it is a problem what I need to do to fix it. Thanks - Frank T.

    Frank can you please qualify what running slow means? What drivers are built into your image? How big is it?

    The "link for flash" variable message is not an error, it's letting you know that your image is linked to run from SDRAM and not out of flash memory.

    Thanks,

    Thanks Aaron, taking out references to KITL and Debug from the boot script solved the problem. - FT
