beaglebone: unrecognized/unsupported machine ID (r1 = 0x00000e05).

hi all,

I have downloaded sources for linux kernel 3.8 and built an uImage to boot it on beaglebone a6 but

while I tried to boot it with board, the image is getting loaded and even getting uncompressed. but then it is getting an error, saying unsupported/unrecognized machine id, and please check your kernel config and/or bootloader.


Starting kernel …

Uncompressing Linux… done, booting the kernel.

Error: unrecognized/unsupported machine ID (r1 = 0x00000e05).

Available machine support:

Please check your kernel config and/or bootloader.


You need a recent u-boot. Kernel 3.8 will not boot with old version.
