My latest endaevor has me cross compiling a stand alone application for MPC8548 PPC for a U-Boot Based target. There is no Operating System to run on the target to speak of, just my application. I'm building the application in Code Warrior using an 8548_init.S hardware intialization file.

1) My first thought was that this should be as simple as using the .ELF image that codewarrior produces, right? So I build a simple hello_world application and sent it down to my target. U-Boot recognizes it as an ELF image, sets up the segements, and tries to run it! But then low and behold, the U-Boot flash image comes up again.

## Starting application at 0x00002044 ...

2) My next thought was to try and wrap it as a stand alone application image using "mkimage" Ok, Great smile.gif To no avail....

$ mkimage -A ppc -O u-boot -T standalone -C none -a 2000 -e 2044 -n "Hiya stranger" -d debug.bin uDebug.bin

How do I go about exporting my code warrior application so that I can run it as stand-alone on a U-Boot based target? I'm not concerned with preserving the U-Boot libraries, I simply want to launch my own executable image.

Thanks everyone
