I have changed the TEXT_BASE to 0xA1F000000. Now it is pointing to
31st MB of 1st chip select. I did not understand what do you mean by "
link address is your address space " ?
According to TEXT_BASE at 0xA1F000000, i have following stack and malloc
Malloc space: 0xa1900000 -> 0xa1f00000 (size 6 MB)
Stack space : 0xa18f8000 -> 0xa1900000 (size 32 kB)

I am adding two device using armlinux_add_dram() each with 32MB size and
map_base address of 0xA0000000 and 0xB0000000 respectively.. Is that fine or
Can I have one device registered with map_base address of 0xA0000000 and
I have enabled MMU in barebox. There also i have a change for
arm_create_section(). Following is section of code i have in
*static void pcm038_mmu_init(void)
arm_create_section(0xa0000000, 0xa0000000, 32, PMD_SECT_DEF_CACHED);
arm_create_section(0xb0000000, 0xa0000000, 32,
#if TEXT_BASE & (0x100000 - 1)
#warning cannot create vector section. Adjust TEXT_BASE to a 1M boundary
arm_create_section(0x0, TEXT_BASE, 1,
With all these changes, I see ping command hangs.. :(
If I replace the macro from PMD_SECT_DEF_UNCACHED to PMD_SECT_DEF_CACHED
in the function pcm038_mmu_init(), the ping command throws some
transmission timeout messages and exits saying the the destination is not
It would be great if you can help me out!!
