I managed to fix it by downloading and compiling a later
version of the kernel sources.

However this has left me with another problem!

The following simple program:


#include <asm/MC68EZ328.h>

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
        PDSEL |= 0x01;


compiles fine, but when run crashes the ucSimm back
to its monitor with an "access fault"

This is so for any code that attempts to access the IO ports
directly. However a simple puts("hello world"); compiles and
executes just fine...

Am I missing something in my kernel config? Or should I be
setting the board into supervisor mode?

Looks like I've got a long way to go :-(
