Hi all,

I could not use the -mlongcall  flag to compile my application.  
I do not know if   I need to rebuild my toolchains with a specific option
or the rs6000.c file needs to be patched.  I am heading both directions
with no conclusion.  Hopefully, someone can shed some light for

 I believe the -mlongcall flag will solve the error message I ran to
with the MVME2304-0141 board.  Probably Till does not need to rebuild the
GeSys binary.  Without rebuilding the vxWorks image, we  used the -mlongcall
option for the EPICS base and  application on the same board and it works.

The error I got while loading the object code is :

 "Relocation of type 'R_PPC_REL24' failed: The relocation was performed,
 but there was an overflow (check compiler flags!)"

Te MVME2304-0141 board  is the same as Paul's  MVME2304-0143 with 128 MB.  
Based on my experience with the MVME2306 board, the exception 3 could be
caused by
the improper setup of  the hardware or VME crate as well.
