Does anyone have these Sangmoa devices working with a plug computer?

2.6.31 is now available.

cbxbiker61, what toolchain did you use to compile the kernel?

I'd like to make a custom configured kernel.  I'm starting from the kernel.org 2.6.31 sources, added the patches that you provide and am using your .config that you have kindly posted.  I'd like to be sure I'm using the same toolchain as well.

Thanks!

I thought the Marvell processor only brought out 30 bits of address space, so unless you are talking externally segmenting the memory, 1G is the limit.

Where do you see that there are 30 bits of address space?  According to section 4 of the 88F6281 functional spec (http://www.marvell.com/files/products/embedded_processors/kirkwood/FS_88F6180_9x_6281_OpenSource.pdf):

Quote
The device integrates an DDR SDRAM (Double Data Rate-Synchronous DRAM) controller that supports up to four DRAM banks (four DRAM chip selects). It incorporates an 18-bit address bus (M_A[14:0] and M_BA[2:0]) and a 16-bit data bus (M_DQ[15:0]).

The device supports 256 Mb, 512 Mb, 1 Gb, and 2 Gb DDR2 SDRAM devices, with up to 2 GB total address space.

I want to know what parts are suitable to achieve a design with 2 GB of RAM.

I'm working on a custom design based on the SheevaPlug reference design.  I would like to incorporate 2GB of RAM on my design, but I've not been able to locate any DRAM chips that will work properly with the Kirkwood processor in a 2GB configuration.

Has anyone else done a Kirkwood based design that supports 2GB of RAM?  If so, what DRAM parts are you using and in what configuration?
