 I wanted to call the attention of all Android developers to an event
happening in conjunction with CTIA in Las Vegas later this month, with
particular attention on the AppWar, a free competition for mobile

The Andrew Seybold Innovation Rally, offered for the first time this
year as part of ANDREW SEYBOLD WIRELESS UNIVERSITY, offers an up-close
look at how some of today most innovative thinkers are rallying to
create and deploy new mobile services that extend their lead over the
rest of the industry. This racing-themed program will provide a unique
look into the future of blended services, data and applications. As a
backdrop for these discussions, the program will highlight advances in
electric car technology and a first look at a igital dashboardthat
fulfills the promise of proximity-based content. Innovation Rally
speakers will include Rick Geremeth, Vice President of IT for
Motorsports Authentics; Michael Kadie, CEO of Electric Car Kit SSI
Racing; Mike Wehr, CEO of the Mobile Marketing Association; James
Oyang, CEO of Pharos; Nagesh Challa, Chairman of Ecrio Inc.; and Sue
Marek, Editor-in-Chief for Fierce Wireless. For a complete agenda for

1. Trouble booting my own built kernel

Hi, I'm trying to load a kernel I built myself in the emulator.  The
kernel is the stock kernel:  I got the config from a running emulator,
and I haven't modified the source in any way with one minor exception:
 I'm building and running on MacOS X, which has no elf.h, so I've
downloaded a copy of it and referred to it from the kernel/scripts/mod

out/host/darwin-x86/bin/emulator -kernel kernel/arch/arm/boot/zImage
-system out/target/product/generic/ -show-kernel -verbose

(kernel/arch/arm/boot/zImage is the kernel I built myself.)  When I do
this, I see output from the emulator starting up, stopping at:
emulator: ping program: ./out/host/darwin-x86/bin/ddms
emulator: ping command: ./mydroid/out/host/darwin-x86/bin/ddms ping emulator 1.9

The emulator UI never appears, there's no debug output, nothing
further happens until I kill the emulator.  I can connect to the
emulator with 'telnet localhost 5554' and verify that it's running, or
at least responding on the console, but nothing further.

If, on the other hand, I use the prebuilt kernel, like so:
out/host/darwin-x86/bin/emulator -kernel
prebuilt/android-arm/kernel/kernel-qemu -system
out/target/product/generic/ -show-kernel -verbose

I see the emulator output, and it continues with the kernel starting:
done, booting the kernel.

and the emulator UI shows, everything's normal.

Any suggestions how to debug this?
