This is on an X5000 (powerpc64 book3e - no altavec), so binaries are not available from I was able to get some binaries from someone and they are working on their system, but on mine when I try to boot I get:

Does anyone have any ideas on what is causing this?

You should ask someone who create some binaries for something how exactly they where created and that might give you some ideas for some of the problems.

UBoot can be temperamental about memory amounts. It is programmed in with the build on some platforms.
Have you tried to escape to the U-boot command prompt and do a memory check?
I have a feeling that Memory is at play here.
Are you using the same amount of memory as the person you got the help from?

Yes, the issue was with ubldr. Putting in one from an older install fixed the issue. Thank you!
