Well, that proves it's not the compiler. Still fails to boot, even though the toolchain that's supposed to work is 4.5.1. Does 32-bit / 64-bit host make a difference?
host should not matter although from my compiler experience I have
seen few cases where hosts injects bugs into cross compiler which
showed up on the target in compiled code but those cases were rare.
Yes, I've not really seen any issues in this area before.

You should make sure that the compiler if the guys (who claim it works
) doesnt carry patches that are special.

The tree that holds the tools ( doesn't seem to have any source, so I'm assuming it's unmodified. However, I've asked the question just incase...

One thing I have noticed is the kernel images I build are less than half the size of the 'official' ones.

Thanks for all the help you've given me on this :-)
