Kernel freezes during boot sequence

0 votes
Just following the instructions in tutorials I have built custom kernel and rootfs. Unfortunately during boot sequence the system freezes after having ?uncompressed? the kernel that is retrieved via tftp.
This is what I've typed in Uboot: dboot linux tftp
The appropriate jffs2 files and the OS image retain in /tftpboot folder. Here is the console output:

Uncompressing Linux.................................................................

From this point happens nothing! I would appreciate any helpful advice.

I've found a solution. I had to install older version of ESP. It seems that ESP 5.2 produces corrupted kernel Linux-2.6.28.10. Using ESP 5.0 it boots perfectly with kernel Linux-2.6.28.9.
