I am having a stupid problem trying to get etherboot (or anything else for
that matter) to boot using elfboot.
I am testing this with LinuxBIOS V1 because I have no mainboards at the
moment supported by V2, and the port I am doing currently is taking its'

Welcome to elfboot, the open sourced starter.

ROMBase = 0x464c457f
The null message appears to be coming from the stream->init() function call
in elfboot.c, and I am having trouble finding out exactly where things are
In my config I have the following:
I am guessing that the stream->init() function is attempting to set up a
stream and with the USE_GENERIC_ROM option set, I would imagine that this
should really call the stream init code in rom_fill_inbuf.c, but the debug
statements in that are not getting printed.
I was guessing that maybe elfboot could not find the ROM device, and I have
verified (with the ROMBase = 0x464c457 debug statement above) that I am
indeed able to read valid data from 0xfffc0000. The value printed is the
first 4 bytes of the etherboot elf image I am trying to load, so I
definately have the ROM chip selects enabled.
Any pointers please??
