14.3.9. System hangs when entering User Space (ARM)

Question:
The Linux kernel boots, but then the system hangs after printing: "Freeing init memory: 120K".
I'm using the root file system from ELDK 4.2 (or later) on an ARM system.

Answer:
ELDK 4.2 (and later) for ARM provide an EABI compliant User Space environment. You must enable EABI support in your Linux kernel configuration, or the system will hang as described. Your kernel's ".config" file should contain "CONFIG_AEABI=y" for this.
