You put what where?!

Pictorial view of FAILOVER_SIZE, _ROMBASE. ROM_IMAGE_SIZE, PAYLOAD_SIZE, ROM_SIZE, ROM_SECTION_SIZE, HAVE_FALLBACKBOOT, HAVE_FAILOVERBOOT for Options.lb and Config.lb.

XIP_ROM_BASE and XIP_ROM_SIZE are for MTRR setting during CAR to cache part of the ROM image. Speeds up anything with loops like copies and decompression.


Some Errors you might come across and probable solutions

Linuxbios input file larger than allowed size

Error:

./buildrom linuxbios.strip linuxbios.rom payload 0x70000 0x7f000
linuxbios image is 458820 bytes; only 458752 allowed
Linuxbios input file larger than allowed size!

Solution:

Typically caused by crt0 having a .data segment. Make sure all rom data is defined as constant.


section .id overlaps section .rom

Error:

make: *** [fallback/linuxbios.rom] Error 1

Solution:

Increase the ROM_IMAGE_SIZE of the failing piece. In this case the fallback image.
