[U-Boot-Users] IVT on 405GP

Thanks Stefan:

	Just reading some uboot install stuff and it appear to say what I am
doing is ok but it does not seem to do everything. It say that it copies
itself to upper memory then it should copy 8k of vector stuff to zero. So
it looks like somehow I am missing the vector copy code, or it is not

Again it appears as though "trap init" initializes some vectors in the IVT,
however it does not copy the code prologue and exception code.
Can you see in the code where the contents of the first 8k of memory
is copied?

Hi Jerry!

Please find attached a binary file with a memory dump (address
0x0000--0x3fff) of our CPCI-405 board (PPC405GP based). I initialized the
memory with 0xaa and then started U-Boot. You can see, which memory
locations are written (with exception vector code) from U-Boot.

Hope this helps...

Best regards,
