I found the latest marvell uboot here:
http://plugcomputer.org/index.php/us/resources/downloads?func=fileinfo&id=54
but I couldn't find the build instructions. Has anyone succeeded in building it?
Thanks, Ian

In a nutshell.  Read this:  http://plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=319.0

The important parts are to set up your cross compiler.  I used the instructions from the cd on how to build the kernel. 

After that.  Do this, from the above post:

1) tar jxvf u-boot-1.1.4.tar.bz2
2) mv u-boot-1.1.4 u-boot-3.4.16
3) unzip u-boot-3.4.16 (this will overwriting existing files)
4) cd u-boot-3.4.16
5) make mrproper
6) make rd88f6281Sheevaplug_config NBOOT=1 LE=1
 7) make

The output should be u-boot-rd88f6281Sheevaplug_400db_nand.bin


If you are Using Ubuntu and not Fedora edit the main Makefile and change occurrences of echo -e to echo.  Do this BEFORE number 6 above.

Yes, those are the instructions for 3.4.16, I was asking about 3.4.19.

It turns out that the instructions are almost the same (replace 3.4.16 with 3.4.19) however the zip file at
http://plugcomputer.org/index.php/us/resources/downloads?func=fileinfo&id=54
does not include u-boot-1.1.4.tar.bz2 so you need to download SheevaPlug_U-Boot1.2 from:
http://plugcomputer.org/index.php/us/resources/downloads?func=fileinfo&id=41
and extract u-boot-1.1.4.tar.bz2 then follow the instructions.

I have successfully compiled it on the plug using gcc 4.2.3 from optware ipkg.

Of course, if I had read the release notes from
http://plugcomputer.org/index.php/us/resources/downloads?func=fileinfo&id=54
I would have found the instructions. How does that saying go? RTFM  Smiley
