    Hi All,

    I ran into issues with booting Linux kernel from a CF card through APEX bootloader.

    The Linux kernel and root filesystem are located in a 64MB CF card.
    The following is the commands I used to boot the Linux Kernel:
    Apex>copy ext2://1/boot/zImage-lpd79524-2.6.12 0x20008000
    Apex>console=ttyAM0,115200 root=/dev/hda1

    The Linux kernel image is uncompressed and boot, but stop before Mount
    filesystem. Can you please suggest what I went wrong?

    What is the correct partition the root file system should be mounted to?

    Thanks for your suggestion

    Do you really want it to use "/dev/hda1" (a IDE/ATA hard drive) as the root partition?

    How is your filesystem created? It is customary to use JFFS2 filesystems with embedded systems and store it somewhere in Flash.
