Hello all.

I grabbed kernels from these places:

Both do not boot. They do boot in an emulated environment using
gxemul, however I noticed that the hardware isn't discovered the same
way as on my real hardware so I don't know if that's relevant.

They do boot on my Mobilepro790 however. I just plug this exact same
CF card into it, and it boots just fine.

Here's the last few lines I get (typed by hand, if more is needed let me know):

mqvideo0: framebuffer address: 0xaa0ea600
trap: TLB miss (load or instr. fetch) in kernel mode
status=0x2, cause=0x8008, epc=0x80297568, vaddr=0

80235704+3f4 (8037bb60,109,0,101) ra 0 sz 0

Again, the above output is from this kernel:

Any help would be appreciated.
