I am able to build and test the Phoenix-RTOS microkernel under qemu on Raspberry Pi 4/Raspian, as well as to build the VF2 Debian Kernel.
I would like to package the microkernel on a SD card but my understanding of build and boot mechanics is very weak.
I presume I need to package the VF2 u-boot and OpenSBI with the Phoenix-RTOS kernel and some configuration file, but am a bit lost in the complexities of u-boot/SBI/… documentation and examples.
Hints and pointers to simplified docs or examples much appreciated!
This might help if you haven’t seen it:
Ah! Thanks much!
Theory of operation WRT VF2 is much better than the u-boot and OPenSBI readme’s & code!
Back to reading…
I have made progress but still have holes in my understanding of what information is passed between u-boot+OpenSBI and a booting kernel.
Boot log prints:
*** Bad Linux RISCV Image magic! ***
I have not found the sw component reporting the above (grepped through u-boot, and OpenSBI code).

OK. How I got here and what I am doing.
I am placing a Phoenix-RTOS Kernel and initramfs onto the boot directory in /dev/mmcblk1p3 and adding to the extlinux.conf.
root@starfive:~# cd /boot
root@starfive:/boot# ls -F

mmcblk1p4 179:4 0 14.7G 0 part /
vvv extlinux.conf added: vvv
menu label Phoenix-RTOS
append root=/dev/mmcblk1p3 rw console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200 debug earlycon rootwait selinux=0
What should I be looking at/for here?
Kernel code packaging?
Thanks again for any ideas, suggestions, theory of operation, …
