how hard would be to do that given that I have the config for the kernel and the fact that I've never done this before?

Is there anything I can do to get over that init message about no processes left?

At this point, hit <Enter/Return> key on your keyboard. I'd exepect it will drop you to the Linux shell, and you will be in stock OS.

it does not, just sits idle.

If I try to use the stock kirkwood rootfs with the generated uImage then it boots to a point and then states "attempted to kill init" and "kernel too old".

Unless I can find a guide on how to make a DTS file it is my guess that this is a futile attempt at finding shortcuts.

Yes, it make sense to see "kernel too old".

Unlike other SoCs such as Kirkwood, Dove, or Armada, which all have a reference board in mainline. This is a new SoC. Therefore it would take me quite a bit of time to create the DTS. So I can't promise to help you doing that, unless I have a big chunk of free time (I already have some other tasks lined up and could not get to those yet :)

With that said, if I can find a board of this Avanta SoC that pikes my interest, no telling if I'll stay up all night working on it :))

I can mail you mine if it's something you are willing to look at.
Not sure I'm seeing things the right way but It has an integrated N wireless and a Z wave so it might make an interesting box to play with for home automation.

veriqster,

Sorry, I have no free time to look at it anyway :)

But keep your box on the shelf, if you got it cheap, don't sell it.
