I am trying to use kexec-2.0.4-rc1 on an ARM device running Linux 3.0.4.
This old kernel does obviously not have device-tree support. Here's the
error message I get:
# uname -a
Linux speaker 3.0.4 #1 PREEMPT Fri Nov 23 09:15:39 CET 2012 armv5tel GNU/Linux
# kexec --append="console=ttyS0,115200 root=ubi0:RootFS rootfstype=ubifs rw ubi.mtd=3" /boot/uImage --force
unrecoverable error: could not scan "/proc/device-tree/": No such file or directory
Looks like the release candidate depends on the very latest kernel
features and won't work on older kernels? Is that intentional?
