Building Redboot for the Gateworks Cambria Family

The redboot bootloader is used on the Gateworks IXP4xx (xscale) based products



To build redboot you first need the following pre-requesites:

  • xscale cross toolchain
  • tcl (ecosconfig tool is dynamically linked to it)
    sudo apt-get install tcl8.4
  • Note that you may need to create a symlink to if ecosconfig fails to find it such as:
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/
  • Step-by-Step Instructions for building redboot

    1. Download redboot from Gateworks SVN
      svn co
    1. Configure Path of Toolchain (change the below such that it points to the directory you untarred the toolchain to above:
      export PATH=$PWD/H-i686-pc-linux-gnulibc2.2/bin:$PATH
    1. Build redboot
      cd redboot

    Note: If you are using a 64bit linux host you need to copy the pre-built 64bit ecosconfig tool over:

    cp bin/ecosconfig64 bin/ecosconfig
    1. Use a Gateworks jtag adapter to flash the bootloader binary images/rb.bin to your target

    See README.Gateworks for information about customizing redboot for your needs
