i configured and compiled buildroot-2011.02, which comes with 2.6.37 as the 
default kernel setting.  I chose this one and "omap2plus" as the defconfig 

u-boot.bin boots fine, but the kernel does not show any output.  All i see is:

reading uImage

Uncompressing Linux... done, booting the kernel.

There's nothing more after this.  I also tried "omap3" as defconfig (and 
copied that 0map3_defconfig from a previous kernel, same result).

Not sure if i missed something, some questions came up:

- does buildroot use the correct kernel for BeagleBoard-xM?
- do i need to apply patches?
- what configuration file do i need to chose?
- does u-boot need special options to boot that kernel?

It would be great if anybody had some hints for me.

Best regards,
