Linux kernels 3.2 and 3.1.7 are broken!
January 06, 2012 07:00AM
Is this the end of the road for Linux development on the Dockstar? Kernel 3.2 does not compile cleanly and 3.1.7 fails to load. Something has changed between 3.1.6 and 3.1.7!

Kernel 3.2 compiles cleanly - but fails to load - if the following command is issued in the kernel source directory:


sed -i "s/CONFIG_MTD=y/CONFIG_MTD=n/" .config


Does anyone actually build kernels for the the Dockstar anymore?

Kernel 3.1.7 compiles cleanly and works OK.

This is the solution to get a working 3.2

In addition to removing the BUILD_BUG_ON feature, I also had to

/usr/local/codesourcery/arm-2011.03/bin/arm-none-linux-gnueabi-objcopy    -O binary -R .note -R .comment -S vmlinux vmlinux.bin

cp  vmlinux.bin vmlinux-3.2.0.bin

/usr/bin/mkimage -A arm -O linux -T kernel  -C none -a 0x00008000 -e 0x00008000 -n Linux-3.2.0 -d /boot/vmlinux-3.2.0.bin /boot/uImage

For some reason my Dockstar refuses to boot with vmlinuz (the compressed image of vmlinux). At present I'm using Codesourcery 2011.03 GCC 4.5.3. I've just upgraded the compiler to Codesourcery 2011.09 to see if the situation is resolved.

I upgraded the cross-compiler to Codesourcery 2011.09 - GCC 4.6.1, and am please to report that my Dockstar is able to boot Kernel 3.2.0 with a compressed vmlinux; that is, the the Dockstar will boot with vmlinuz.

I would recommend that users of the Codesourcery cross-compile environment upgrade to the latest version. Just amend the relevant section of the setup_codesourcery.sh shell script, and remember to use codesourcery-arm-2011.09.sh
to enter the cross-compile environment.

native 3.1.9 fine, 3.2.1 not booting for me
January 17, 2012 05:59PM
Odd, irregular, strange... I rolled a perfectly fine 3.1.9 kernel on my dockstar (natively) ... but the same command structure set applied to 3.2.0 and 3.2.1 doesn't yield a booting kernel.

Anyone else see this behavior?


=============

Interesting... I backed away from a Debian-ish config and tried defconfig_kirkwood, with the same results.

I cross-compiled Kernel 3.2.0 using Codesourcery 2011.09 - GCC 4.6.1 and it compiles cleanly (after removing the build_bug) and yields a booting kernel, the only problem is that there are some "system misalignments":

cat /proc/cpu/alignment
User: 0
System: 1227
Skipped: 0
Half: 0
Word: 1227
DWord: 0
Multi: 0
User faults: 2 (fixup)


I also cross-compiled Kernel 3.2.1; it compiles cleanly but fails to boot: something about a missing device. Kernel 3.2.x in my opinion is not worth the trouble: Linux release quality has slipped in recent times. The relevant people were informed about the compile problems as early as 3.2-rc1, but no action was taken.

I will resume cross-compiling kernels when my JTAG arrives: two of my six Dockstars died when I followed someone's advise to check the NAND memory for errors!

Mugabe, thanks for the confirmation... I tried neither netconsole nor serial, but I suppose they would have spelled it out for me.

I guess I'll dig for some clues about the problems w/ 3.2.x and watch for posts about possible fixes.

Yeah, 3.1.9 is fine for me, now.

Kernel 3.3.0-rc1 compiles cleanly, but will only load if an uncompressed vmlinuz kernel (boot) image is used. There are a few system alignment traps (not really an issue.)

I don't think the failure to boot an uncompressed vmlinuz is actually a Linux kernel issue; it could be a problem with Jeff's uboot and the kernel decompressor used, or it could be a problem with my particular brand of USB boot stick. Having said that, something has fundamentally change in kernel's 3.2 and 3.3.

Yes to the 3.3.0-rc1 behavior...
## Booting kernel from Legacy Image at 00800000 ...
   Image Name:   Linux-3.3.0-rc1-kirkwood
   Image Type:   ARM Linux Kernel Image (uncompressed)
   Data Size:    1626136 Bytes = 1.6 MiB
   Load Address: 00008000
   Entry Point:  00008000
   Verifying Checksum ... OK
## Loading init Ramdisk from Legacy Image at 01100000 ...

   Loading Kernel Image ... OK
OK

Starting kernel ...

Uncompressing Linux... done, booting the kernel.

(then nothing)

Is the uImage compressed w/ gzip or w/ lzma?

My guess is that it is not your USB flashdrive ... I'm using a FreeAgent (usb-sata), and seeing the same behavior that you mention.

VMLinuz is compressed with either LZMA or BZIP2; either way a very small decompression stub is included in the resulting image. The stub decompresses the kernel code, on some systems printing dots to the console to indicate progress, and then continues the boot process. So, the problem - it would appear - is not with Jeff's decompression code - since it is not used, but with the latest Linux kernels' image decompression routine with respect to the (Dockstar) ARM platform. The problem can be surmounted by using an uncompressed boot kernel image.

OK not a full boot but much closer... I upgraded my CodeSoucery toolchain to 11.9, did something different w the config and then ran make uImage. The resulting uImage did partially but stopped when it couldn't find the accompanying modules for 3.3.0rc1

I'm trying it now on my dockstar w the same config.

The kernel compression type is defined in .config, the default type is LZMA. I've recompiled lzma from source and have also compiled U-boot's mkimage from the latest source. I configured a 3.3.0-rc1 kernel to produce a bzip2 and a lzma compressed kernel image: neither of these kernels would boot:


## Booting kernel from Legacy Image at 00800000 ...
   Image Name:   Linux-3.3.0-rc1
   Image Type:   ARM Linux Kernel Image (lzma compressed)

   Data Size:    6302938 Bytes = 6 MiB
   Load Address: 00000000
   Entry Point:  00000000

stopping USB..
### JFFS2 loading 'uboot-original-mtd0.kwb' to 0x1100000
Scanning JFFS2 FS: ........ done.
### JFFS2 load complete: 524288 bytes load

A successful boot was only achieved when an uncompressed kernel image was written (using mkimage) to uImage. Is it possible that the problem is with U-boot?

@Mugabe, could you please share your .config w/ us (me!). I want to replicate that ... actually to see also if the compressed and uncompressed kernels will boot on my PogPlugV2.


Also, what version of module init tools are you running? I see you have v164 for udev.

.config for Kernel 3.3-rc1 (Cookies and java script!)

Uncompressed kernel boot image (if not done from .config)

Cross compile environment (amend for native compile)
/usr/local/codesourcery/arm-2011.09/bin/arm-none-linux-gnueabi-objcopy    -O binary -R .note -R .comment -S vmlinux vmlinux.bin

cp  vmlinux.bin vmlinux-3.3.0-rc1.bin


On the Dockstar (amend if mounted)
/usr/bin/mkimage -A arm -O linux -T kernel  -C none -a 0x00008000 -e 0x00008000 -n Linux-3.3.0-rc1 -d /boot/vmlinux-3.3.0-rc1.bin /boot/uImage

[   68.361708] System halted.

I've double-checked and /lib/modules/3.3.0-rc1/modules.dep is indeed there, is readable and has the expected contents. This is a wheezy installation, so I'm going to try to roll back to the module-init-tools that is in squeeze.

----------------------------------------------

I've rebuilt my initramfs so that it has older udev and modinittools in it... that didn't get me any further. Also, tried declaring my usb_rootfstype as ext2 (same as yours)... still no go.

Debootstrapped wheezy and installed kernel 3.3.0-rc1, used the same config as previous installs and used an uncompress u-boot kernel image: system boots cleanly. uImage and uInitrd were created under a chrooted environment, therefore, the latest wheezy u-boot mkimage tools were used. Your problems could be due to upgrading squeeze to wheezy. Follow Vlad's guide and replace any reference to squeeze with wheezy for a virgin install of wheezy.

Re: Linux kernels 3.2 and 3.1.7 are broken!
January 26, 2012 07:17AM
Hi,

@davygravy:

Your uInitrd is not update so the kernel can't find the correct modules path ^^.

So i'm french i can't explain you correctly but :

In file systeme is not mounted so i can't find "/lib/modules/3.3.0-rc1/modules.dep" on it because the kernel search it on your initramfs.

You have to recompile your initrid after your kernel.

January 26, 2012 07:54PM
kk, I see now... I don't know how I missed that... I must have been either sleeping or repressing the fact that this is Debian and the current setup needs an up-to-date initrd to function as planned... thanks for the guidance.

====================================

root@debian:~# uname -a
Linux debian 3.3.0-rc1-dockstar #1 Thu Jan 26 19:06:42 CST 2012 armv5tel GNU/Linux

gratitude @ Mugabe and val532 ...

I ended up doing a variation on what you two had suggested.

Used make-kpkg to create a .deb for the linux-image.
CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=8 make-kpkg  --rootcmd fakeroot  --arch armel  --cross-compile arm-none-linux-gnueabi- --append-to-version=-dockstar --revision=1.0 --initrd kernel_image
... creates the .deb in about 9 minutes on my 3.4GHz Quad Core.


Used Mugabe's objcopy command to create the vmlinux.bin ...

copied over both the linux-image.deb and the vmlinux.bin to my dockstar.

Used dpkg -i linux-image.deb to install it. But... then I copied over the vmlinux.bin to /boot and ran...
/usr/bin/mkimage -A arm -O linux -T kernel  -C none -a 0x00008000 -e 0x00008000 -n Linux-3.3.0-rc1 -d /boot/vmlinux-3.3.0-rc1.bin /boot/uImage

mkimage -A arm -O linux -T ramdisk -C gzip -a 0x00000000 -e 0x00000000 -n initramfs-3.3.3-dockstar -d /boot/initrd.img-3.3.0-rc1-dockstar /boot/uInitrd

and rebooted...

...viola... again, thank you both!
(that was a good learning experience)

To compile the latest compat-wireless: to ./net/wireless/core.h in the compat-wireless-xxxx-xx-xx directory add:

#if (LINUX_VERSION_CODE >= KERNEL_VERSION(2,6,36))
#define br_port_exists(dev)	(dev->priv_flags & IFF_BRIDGE_PORT)
#else
#define br_port_exists(dev)	(dev->br_port)
#endif


AND


#include <linux/kconfig.h>
into /usr/src/linux-headers-3.3.0-rc1-dockstar/include/linux/netdevice.h (native compile from headers and assumes compat-wireless-2012-01-26/include/mach has been populated with arch/arm/mach-kirkwood/include/mach/*.h from the kernel source.)

If cross-compiling, #include <linux/kconfig.h> into ./include/linux/netdevice.h in the kernel source directory.

This is sometimes required when building compat-wireless with release candidate kernels.
Re: Linux kernels 3.2 and 3.1.7 are broken!

I'm wondering if it would be easy to extract and decompress the kernel from the uImage or some other file that is already in the .deb ?

Yes, the rules, when generated or editted, must be only _one_ line.
# You can modify it, as long as you keep each rule on a single
# line, and change only the value of the NAME= key.


This doesn't have anything with the boot or kernel compression problems though, if I understand you, right?

(yup, I submitted a bug report to both Debian for their packages, and upstream as well, to kernel.org)

OK, just to make it official, for the record... the "bad" has finally made it into Debian Sid...

I tried installing linux-base, initramfs-tools, and linux-initramfs-tool, but each seems to say that it needs one of the others or something else which needs one of the others. How do I proceed?

First and foremost, do you have either netconsole or serial console access?

If not, I'd stop where you are... unless do you, you may end end up making your disk unbootable.

Otherwise, it looks like you have a dependency problem/conflict. You may want to read up on the apt-get command, and how to resolve dependencies within the Debian packaging system.
