Subjectwild pointer!!!!!
hi all,
I recently ported the linux kernel v 2.4.11-pre5 to MDPPro (
MPC860T processor ) board..the kernel dies with an Oops and everytime at a
different place....

i use ppcboot to load the kernel...

i am attaching a sample message below....

upon back tracing i found that at some point the kernel tries to
execute code in Letext ( according to

it'd be great if someone can explain me what this Letext is and why
is the control going there???

thanx in advance
