7.11. Colo-1.22

The Colo package contains the Cobalt Boot Loader.

7.11.1. Installation of Colo



This bootloader is for the MIPS based cobalt servers RaQ, RaQ2, Qube, or the Qube2.

This patch updates the Colo bootloader to build under 64 bit:

patch -Np1 -i ../colo-1.22-make_fix-1.patch

This patch fixes a relocation error when linking with Binutils:

patch -Np1 -i ../colo-1.22-relocation_fix-1.patch

Disable -Werror in one of the Makefiles to prevent a compile failure:

cp -v stage2/Makefile{,.orig}
sed '/^CFLAGS/s/-Werror //' stage2/Makefile.orig > stage2/Makefile

Compile the Colo package:

cd tools/elf2rfx
make CC=gcc
cd ../..

Install the package:

cp -v chain/colo-chain.elf /tools/boot/vmlinux
gzip -9 /tools/boot/vmlinux

Details on this package are located in Section 10.65.2, “Contents of Colo.”
