[U-Boot-Users] do_bootm_linux problem

Hi all,

I try port U-Boot 1.1.1 to a board with MPC8280.
It seems to work but booting the Linux kernel failed without any print after
"Uncompressing Kernel Image ... OK"
I have already checked the cases mentioned in DULG 13.2.5.
I found that within the function do_bootm_linux the pointer "kernel" is 0.
Within the global structure header I found the following:
  header = (
    ih_magic = 0x27051956,
    ih_hcrc = 0x0,
    ih_time = 0x40EBFB9A,
    ih_size = 0x000863D7,
    ih_load = 0x0,
    ih_ep = 0x0,
    ih_dcrc = 0xC3C4EF02,
    ih_os = 0x5,
    ih_arch = 0x7,
    ih_type = 0x2,
    ih_comp = 0x1,
    ih_name = 'L', 'i', 'n', 'u', 'x', '-', '2', '.', '4', '.', '2', '4', '-', 'p', 'r', 'e', '2', '.')

The kernel is the one shipped with ELDK 3.0 made by make uImage.

What could be wrong?

Thanks in advance,
