Rescue V2.8.2 : many enhancements + full kernel support for GoFlexNet/Home, Zyxel NSA3x0 and many others

Posted by davygravy 
I tried to update my old rescue system on my DockStar, but i get these errors:
...
rescue:/tmp# flash_eraseall /dev/mtd2

EDIT: I have made a USB Stick with http://archlinuxarm.org/os/ArchLinuxARM-armv5te-latest.tar.gz and can boot it ;)

btw. in the instruction above is missing where i can get "flash_eraseall"... There is a note: using tools from mtd-utils But where can i get them?

From https://github.com/doozan/uBoot/blob/master/install_uboot_mtd0.sh i see that this is possible:
wget http://download.doozan.com/uboot/flash_erase
wget http://download.doozan.com/uboot/nandwrite

But where can i download "ubiformat" ?

Your host that you were booted into is called "rescue". Is this a NAND rescue that you were booted into, or a USB rescue? (flashing your NAND while booted from NAND usually doesn't work)

Some of the commands have changed with updates to MTD utils.

The best alternative may be to boot from one of my USB rescue images.

Ah! Yes, that's it: I was in the old installed NAND rescure system.

I flash now with a debian on USB and it works.

Thank you!
I have a serial cable... But is it right that the rescue system doesn't use dhcp ? The rescue system doesn't get a IP.
It uses DHCP, and the dhcp client does work. I've tested it against 5 or 6 different routers.

Have you tried using a network scanner (angry ip scanner, for instance) to find it?

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


Hello from France.

Thx for your good work all.

I have a question about reinstall debian with Jeff's scripts on a fresh usb stick.

Both squeeze and wheezy install scripts failed. could you help me?

Thx
Resolved :

1. mount / -rw -o remount
2. removed or rename the /usr/bin/perl symlink of the rescue system
3. mount / -r -o remount
4. cd /tmp
5. wget http://projects.doozan.com/debian/dockstar.debian-squeeze.sh
6. edit dockstar.debian-squeeze.sh and remove '--no-check-gpg ' of the following line : /usr/sbin/debootstrap --verbose --no-check-gpg --arch=$ARCH --variant=$VARIANT --include=$EXTRA_PACKAGES $RELEASE $ROOT $DEB_MIRROR
7. chmod +x dockstar.debian-squeeze.sh
8. export PATH=$PATH:/usr/sbin:/sbin
9. ./dockstar.debian-squeeze.sh

And it's OK.

I don't know if it's the right way but i have now a working usb stick.

Hi, is there any possibility to add udhcpd applet to busybox there?
I'm not sure whether it would interact poorly w/ what is already there in terms of daemons and udhcp* stuff.

I'll take a peek at what is there right now & post back.

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


Thanks for the great job.

And is it possible for you to upload that environment, where you've compiled all that stuff (openvpn, busybox, e.t.c.), because I've tried to copy some programs from USB with debian, it seems to be OK if I will copy some libraries as well, but libraries on USB debian installation are newer and bigger, therefore it takes much more space, so I would like to compile some programs myself but I would need the same libraries you have used for rescue image.
How did you make udhcpc do its stuff before ntpdate? I'm having a hard time figuring out how to make ntpd run before udhcpc? I tried adding delay but the kernel always waits for ntpd to come up before executing udhcpc. Any ideas?
Are you talking about rc.d script booting process? If yes - just comment ntp related script, or paste "exit" as a second string...
Have a couple of questions:
1. Can it be installed from u-boot with tftp? I'm having problem starting Debian on USB.
2. Once inside the rescue system, is it possible to install Debian on USB using http://projects.doozan.com/debian/?

Thanks

kk, thank you for the offer for the patch... actually, 30 minutes and some testing seems to have done it (just took the ALARM support patch and pulled out the two Pogo sections, added/modified two lines or so in each)... I now have a version 2.8.1 that extends arcNumber support for the Pogo_e02 and pogoplugv4 by their given arcNumbers...

I tested it in the PogoE02 and it works fine - setting arcNumber to 3542 enables proper LED behavior. I haven't tested it on the mtd function w/ this patch, but it shouldn't have changed anything wrt mtd.

hi all,
I successfully installed rescue system v2.8.1 on my PogoE02 (pink), and also Debian Wheezy on USB device.
They both work, but LED configuration is not fine.
In fact, in
/sys/class/leds
I only have:
plug:green:health
and
plug:red:misc
I can just switching on/off the led with orange color changing (echo..) trigger value of plug:green:health to default-on/none.
This behaviour both occur on rescue system (installed from archive at first post RescueV2.8.1-05282012.tar.gz), whose kernel is:
Linux rescue 3.3.2-kirkwide #1 Mon May 28 13:23:17 CDT 2012 armv5tel GNU/Linux
and Debian Wheezy, whose kernel is:
Linux debian 3.2.0-3-kirkwood #1 Mon Jul 23 22:36:47 UTC 2012 armv5tel GNU/Linux

The arcNumber is set to 3542, here is the output of the fw_printenv command:

Do you have any clue on how could I configure the led to green?

hi all,
here are further steps I made, about issue of LED not properly set on Pogoplug E02, using rescue.

Please consider I'm quite a noob at these things, so forgive me if what I write here is not correct.

Having a look at content of rescue source file referenced at first post (custom-RescueV2.8.1.tar.gz), whitin the config file of buildroot (buildroot-config) it's also se the kernel config to be used:
#
# Kernel
#
BR2_LINUX_KERNEL=y
# BR2_LINUX_KERNEL_2_6_34 is not set
# BR2_LINUX_KERNEL_SAME_AS_HEADERS is not set
BR2_LINUX_KERNEL_CUSTOM_VERSION=y
# BR2_LINUX_KERNEL_CUSTOM_TARBALL is not set
BR2_LINUX_KERNEL_CUSTOM_VERSION_VALUE="3.3.2"
BR2_LINUX_KERNEL_VERSION="3.3.2"
BR2_LINUX_KERNEL_PATCH="custom/linux-3.3.2-wide"
# BR2_LINUX_KERNEL_USE_DEFCONFIG is not set
BR2_LINUX_KERNEL_USE_CUSTOM_CONFIG=y
BR2_LINUX_KERNEL_CUSTOM_CONFIG_FILE="custom/linux-3.3.2-config"
BR2_LINUX_KERNEL_UIMAGE=y
# BR2_LINUX_KERNEL_BZIMAGE is not set
# BR2_LINUX_KERNEL_ZIMAGE is not set
# BR2_LINUX_KERNEL_VMLINUX is not set
In turn, having a look in the kernel config file refernced there (custom/linux-3.3.2-config), I see that the POGO E02 arch (CONFIG_MACH_POGO_E02) is missing:
#
# Marvell Kirkwood Implementations
#
CONFIG_MACH_DB88F6281_BP=y
CONFIG_MACH_RD88F6192_NAS=y

Anyway, after discovering this, I tried to recompile the 3.3.2 kernel, using instructions found in the kernle 3.3.2 thread (I resumed the procedure I followed in the file attached to this post). Of course, during the menuconfig I enabled the POGO_E02 machine, in this case. The compilation and the install of the kernel was ok, and I was able to start the pogo with my kernel (confirmed by output of "uname -a").

But, apparently the machine arch is not recognized correctly, and the led configuration is the Sheevaplug one (arc=2097).

My fw_env seems to be setted correctly, infact:
root@debian:/var/log# fw_printenv | grep arc
arcNumber=3542
(on the previous post, there is the compite fw_printev output)
But, in my dmseg output, running my custom build kernel, it seems that the wrong machine number is taken into account:

(you can see in red the kernel string, that confirm I'm using my custom built kernel; the reference to goflex is just because I didn't rename correctly the default string used in the .config I used).

I also attach here the kernel config used to build the kernel.

Do you have any clue on what is wrong, and how could possibly fix it?

Thanks very much.

have you tried setting the machid instead of arcNumber?

I will take a second look at my UBoot.

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


how could I set the machid?
for arcNumber, I just execute:
/usr/sbin/fw_setenv arcNumber 3542

Is it just a question of setting another param with fw_setenv like this?
/usr/sbin/fw_setenv machid 3542

I will try as possible (I suppose no harm in doing this)
It worked!

Setting the "machid" variable makes the led behave correctly, both on rescue system (i.e. with the kernel provided by you in the first post) and on my debian install on usb hdd (i.e. with the kernel I rebuilt).
Therefore, the led support was already there, but for some reasons I don't know setting the variable "arcNumber" in uBoot is not effective: the variable that is indeed considered is "machid". The only caveat is that "machid" wants the hex value of the architecture number. In my case (POGO_E02), the corresponding value for arcNumber=3542 is machid=dd6.
Therefore, the only thing to do to enable correct led behaviour was:
/usr/sbin/fw_setenv machid dd6

Maybe this may help also in other cases.

Thanks for your help.

PS: as a side note, while trying setting "machid", the first try I did was to set value 3542, and of course the kernel didn't boot. So I needed to access netconsole to change the value of machid. Being on a windows box, I downloaded the windows port of nc suggested in the netconsole tutorial by Jeff (link), and in fact as explained it worked only in read-only mode. But I found another port of nc that worked interactively even on windows (link; actually not a great discover, being the first result on google for "netcat on windows"!). Maybe this info could be useful to others, too.

Yes, I've found the problem.

The UBoot that I uploaded for Jeff to distribute to the community is a completely functional/tested/working kwb image - save for one detail : the arcNumber setup is not correctly implemented (this is my oversight, not Jeff's).

I have a newer one that does correctly implement it here : https://dl.dropbox.com/u/1015928/Kirkwood/uboot/newer-uboots-nonEFI_GPT-TESTED/uboot.mtd0.kwb-pogoE02-L2Coff-arcNumberworks.tar.gz

(NOTE: UNTAR/GUNZIP it first, before tftp-transfering it to your Pogo E02! Flash at your own risk-it worked great for me-YMMV-in any case, be careful.)

My LED on the Pogo E02 now works as it should, and arcNumber is honored and recognized as it should be. The machid variable in flash env can be unset.

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


I have rerolled it as 2.8.2 and reissued it w/ the Pogo E02 enabled, as I had supposed/believed it was.

Thanks for your attention to detail and patience.

Edit2: Docstar revived after trying various things, especially those specified in this thread (http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,9256) .

Hi everyone,

I did something very bad: I erase my Dockstar memory while trying to install rescue 2.8.2 (Trying the Whizzy install script but got error, and the various reading lead me here).

I should Not have run these commands while booting with the Dockstar boot itself but with some USB-boot (but I didn't have any other thing to boot with) :

flash_eraseall /dev/mtd7
nandwrite /dev/mtd7 uImage-mtd1.img
flash_eraseall /dev/mtd8
ubiformat /dev/mtd8 -s 512 -f rootfs-mtd2.img -y
=> ERROR: ubiformat not found...

I thought I could do it :( so sad.

Edited: I found a USB disk which has ext2+swap partitions on it. I plugged it in the Dockstar, and it booted up with 3.3.3-dockstar-shyd. The USB must have been a backup disk I made more than a year ago.

What should I do now to "Reverse" these commands that I did while booting with the Dockstar's internal boot partition please ?
flash_eraseall /dev/mtd7
nandwrite /dev/mtd7 uImage-mtd1.img
flash_eraseall /dev/mtd8

Thank you everyone for helping me ressucitate my Dockstar .

(I do see it gets assigned IP from the router. But other than that, I can't even ssh/winScp to it if booting with a blank ext2+swap usb key). :( :(

Hi Folks,

i wanna say thanks your your work, but i had a lot of questions. I have got a Pogo E02 with the Rescue System v2 on it, latest uboot installed trough the sh script and Debian on a USB Stick. Now i want to update to the latest 2.8.2 Rescue System but im not sure if i am right and before i brick my Pogo i want to her if my steps were ok.

1. I had set my Pogo with this command the Arch Number 3542

/usr/sbin/fw_setenv arcNumber 3542

2. After that i download the Arch Rescue System 2.8.2

wget https://dl.dropbox.com/u/1015928/Kirkwood/rescue/RescueV2.8.2-10292012.tar.gz

untar it

tar zxvf RescueV2.8.2-10292012.tar.gz

3. Whe i got both files i should download flash_erase and nandwrite:

wget http://download.doozan.com/uboot/flash_erase
wget http://download.doozan.com/uboot/nandwrite


4. And flash mtd0 and mtd1 with these commands:

flash_eraseall /dev/mtd1
nandwrite /dev/mtd1 uImage-mtd1.img


flash_eraseall /dev/mtd2
ubiformat /dev/mtd2 -s 512 -f rootfs-mtd2.img -y


and set this values:

fw_setenv set_bootargs_rescue 'setenv bootargs console=$console ubi.mtd=2 root=ubi0:rootfs ro rootfstype=ubifs $mtdparts'
fw_setenv bootcmd_rescue 'run set_bootargs_rescue; nand read.e 0x800000 0x100000 0x400000; bootm 0x800000'
fw_setenv bootcmd_pogo 'run bootcmd_rescue'
fw_setenv rescue_installed 1


I think this is right?!

Ok, but on the instrutions on the first page tehere also stands Pogoplug E02 3542 if you have a kernel that supports it

Did my default Armel Kernel from Debian boot up again?


So the next steps, after flashing those both images i boot into Rescue Mode and enter

run bootcmd_rescue

And the last problem, i got on my pc ubuntu as os, but i didnt found anything about the netconsole how to use it on thos forum. whalt should i exactly do to use it?

I know, a lot of quesions, ive rtfm but i want to be on the right side.

thx
Ok,

i did it and also set the machid to dd6. But before i reboot i wait for feedback ;) I hope my Debian on stick will boot up,

Thx

No, this is not necessary, since flash_erase and nandwrite are already available

No, you are way past this point once the rescue system is booted up ...

Stupid mistake - brick or recoverable?
May 15, 2013 05:16AM
Hi guys,

unbelievable, but in spite of the red alert text in the first post, i managed to erase mtd1 and mtd2 on one of my Zyxel NSA320s when trying to install the rescue system (wanted to do everything quickly, since I need to go out for a while in a minute and copy and pasted the wrong commands ...).

Now the machine is still running and I have others with which I could try to remedy the situation if I only knew enough to do so. Therefore, here is what I believe to be the case:

a) mtd1 = uboot_env and mtd2 = key_store (from looking at fw_printenv)
b) uBoot is still there as it is in mtd0

fw_printenv still gives me the values I expect to see, but maybe it does not read directly from /dev/mtd1? What is/dev/mtd2 used for (key_store)? Can I reboot with it overwritten?

If not, will the following help:

1. Extract images of /dev/mtd1 and /dev/mtd2 from another NSA320 (will be a challenge, but google will be my friend ...)
2. Flash those images to the one currently under re-construction

Any help would be greatly appreciated, as always ...

Sounds to me like a nanddump is in order.

WarheadsSE,

ok, thanks, but: this means ???

What I have done meanwhile is create images of mtd0 - mtd8 (using dd) from the second NSA320 I am currently fiddling with. Is that about the same you were suggesting?

Just for the sake of completeness: the answer is "recoverable".

The idea I had in my original post actually did work. So, if anybody else is interested, this is what can be done, if need be:

1. Extract images of /dev/mtd1 and /dev/mtd2 from another NSA320 via
dd if=/dev/mtdx of=nsa320_mtdx.img

2. Flash those images to the one needing re-construction via
flash_eraseall /dev/mtdx
nandwrite /dev/mtdx nsa320_mtdx.img

Maybe other noobs apart from myself will profit from this.
