Problem installing kernel

0 votes
I have a devboard 9p9215 and I can correctly build a kernel, also I have the images of the kernel and rootfs in my tftp directory but when I try to install them nothing happens and the board boots with the default kernel. How could I fix this?

Well.. In ESP if you say "install" ;- it only copies the images into /tftpboot folder.
you have to update the flash using uboot commands.
"update uboot tftp" :- will update the uboot
"update linux tftp" :- update the kernel
"update rootfs tftp" :- update the filesystem

Read Digi ESP -> Help -> Help Contents -> Digi ESP for Embedded Linux >8. Transferring the system to the target

Hope it helps
