Bug Description

Current Beagleboard xM boards are based with both Numonyx and Micron memory chips.

Micron would be the final chip, but as they faced some issues with it (memory corruption), some boards have a different memory chip, and this needs to be supported by our x-loader.

The patch to make x-loader supports both Numonyx and Micron memory chips is available at http://gitorious.org/beagleboard-validation/x-load/commit/ead751e4a361ce19552ac94bbeba232f12849244.

Proposed branch with upstream patch to fix this issue.

The built deb:

And MLO from it:

As I still don't have a Beagle xM with a Numonyx chip, will wait for others to test and report the result.

Hi Robert,

Thanks a lot for helping me testing the resulting x-loader. So now we just need to wait for Beta and get someone to push the new package version to the archives.
