Recovery System ready for use

Thanks for your answer!

So you think it is not a good advice to install the recovery (as a replacement for the - in my case - useless) pogoplug software? In my understanding it is and so I installed it.

Already flashed the recovery again but with no success. It does not boot really. After blinking orange (or yellow?) the led turns off.

After posting yesterday I unset arcNumber but that was not a good idea because now it does not boot from hdd, too. By now I have a bricked dockstar. Just ordered a serial cable to see what exactly fails. Can last a few days. Does the rescue system (with the newest uboot) support debugging by serial?

I have another dockstar here in original delivery state and will experiment with it. Maybe I can see what I am doing wrong.

//edit:

After installing the second dockstar having debian on usb stick and booting I had another try with the rescue system. Symptom is exactly the same: With usb stick it boots and gets an ip from my router (uDCHPd running) and without it fails totally. After flashing green then orange the led turns off and nothing more happens.

With all respect to Jeffs work at this device its a fatal rescue system where the rescue itself fails to boot?!

//edit2:

According to netconsole the system says it starts the kernel (with all checksums ok), but then noting more happens.

Hi Riffer,
set the arcNumber -Value to 2097, then the Dockstar boots normally.
DHCP fails for me too, but Lothar post a workaround that works for me:
Since i didnt get zcip to work at all and dont wanted to depend on a working dhcp i added an alias to /etc/init.d/rcS:

ifconfig eth0:2 192.168.1.2 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255 up

Many thanks to you. I will give it a try (tomorrow, because I am away from my dockstars atm).
But why 2097? In http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?3,1893 Jeff tells 2998 is the right number?

ifconfig eth0:2 192.168.1.2 netmask 255.255.255.0
broadcast 192.168.1.255 up

then

ifconfig eth0:2 192.168.0.2 netmask 255.255.255.0
broadcast 192.168.0.255 up

would work for my 192.168.0.xxx network?

best regards,
Riffer

2097 ist the original value from the Dockstar. With 2997 my dockstar didn't boot the rescue-system (all ok with debian on hd). Then I'm connect a serial-cable und change the value to the original value. After that, the dockstar boots also the rescue-system.

Yes, change the values to your subnet. In your example your dockstar ist available under the IP-Adress 192.168.0.2

Great! Sounds like the rescue of my now semi broken first dockstar is an easy task. The second one still boots so I can set the arcNumber from running debian.

I thank you very much! (and apologies for my rough english but I am a guy from germany and beside my school grade in english was not the very best school time is over a long time ago. But life and job teached me more english then any school lession could do).

Works great but a few nagging issues.

I'd like the dockstar to boot from usb (flash) first and fallback to the rescue image only if that fails.

Currently if I'm running debian off usb and if I do a reboot/shutdown it will comeback with the rescue image.
I have to pull the plug to go back to usb instead. Kinda makes it a pain to do remote administration via ajaxterm or webmin if a physical reboot is required.

Is there a workaround for this? Maybe a script that can reload the root filesystem from usb that I can run as a watchdog on the rescue disk or somesuch ?

I remember seeing a similar script for reloading the dns-323 from usb ...
Would a hack like the one used in setup.sh in the linked procedure work ? http://bfg100k.blogspot.com/2008/11/upgrading-ffp-05-and-moving-it-to-usb.html

Or is there a cleaner solution I can use to avoid having to physically power cycle the device to get it to recover properly?

Just feels like it's missing some option in uboot to give the USB time to pick up the slack or something...

Fixed it myself.

I used Jeff's uBoot usb polling script and that fixed my issue. Didn't know the side port was the last one on the list.
Re: Recovery System ready for use

Hello Jeff,
I did every as instructed and it seem ok. The problem is that my nand has some bad block, now it won't boot to rescue or popoplug which is gone. Can you show me how to fix this. And also, why do I have bad block in the first place. I only had this unit for less than 2 weeks. reinstall uboot few times(less than 10). Last, is it possible to restore to factory popoplug if you have mdt0,mdt1,mdt2 backup?
Thanks.

thanks,

Just got a dockstar today - love it!

I installed Debian on a flash drive (and cp -a it to a USB hard drive as well) - both work great.

I also installed the rescue system. - which works fine. When I try and plug in flash drivers and USB hard drive when running the rescue system - I see the devices detected in dmesg:

Is this normal? - when I inserted both disks in stock pogo - they appeared in /proc/partitions

How can I tell what partitions the external devices are are to mount them?

Well - please disregard.

Even though the USB drives DON'T appear in /proc/partition - they are still mountable.

mount /dev/sda1 /tmp/sda1 worked fine.

Thanks,

Interesting LED weirdness.

Debian (USB) boot will work find with arcNumber=2097 or arcNumber=2998 - if set to 2998 - the kernel allows control of the LED.

But - the recovery system will ONLY boot if arcNumber=2097 - although it supports the LED with a heartbeat. (will not boot with arcNumber=2998).

Take that back. After a cold boot - neither the recovery system or the USB debian boot work boot with arcnumber=2998.

I needed to reset the uboot.environment using nc to make it come back to life.

I think I'll forego the LED flashing correctly for now - a working dockstar is better to have!!!

I had exactly the same problem and at the end I decided to NOT set the arcNumber to another value then 2097 because only with this the rescue is able to startup - and what else is a rescue system that does not boot then nonsense?

But why have you Jeff done it this way?

Why using 2097 for the rescue system where the standard kirkwood kernel only does right led support with 2998?
Re: Recovery System ready for use
December 15, 2010 05:49AM
Jeff? Could you please update the rescue system to use 2998?
Re: Recovery System ready for use
December 18, 2010 02:16PM
Finally I had success!

Now the dockstar starts up with LED working under kernel 2.6.35.9 with arcNumber 2998.

For others who want to build their own rescue image I post a short description and a new build-dockstar-archive for buildroot-2010.11 maybe tomorrow after having some tests. There have been some changes to the files Jeff supported but my job is completly based on his work. Hope all works fine for you!

//edit:

Here is my archive for kernel 2.6.35.9.

Buildroot-Dockstar.tgz

cd /usr/src
wget http://buildroot.uclibc.org/downloads/buildroot-2010.11.tar.gz
tar -xzvf buildroot-2010.11.tar.gz
cd buildroot-2010.11
wget http://www.meineneue.de/wp-content/buildroot-dockstar.tgz
tar -xzvf buildroot-dockstar.tgz
cp custom/buildroot-config .config
make

after that you must follow the original notes by Jeff in start posting!

To install the self compiled image you have to chance Jeffs install script.
When I have time I will post an adapted version for your convenience.

Any reports are welcome!

Hi all,

During some tests I lost the feature booting into pogoplug or into usb debian system.

I have only the Marvell prompt. ( thanks to netcat system )
Now I have downloaded and started the rescue system from usb.
I was able to login into the RAM Running Rescue System.

But now the rescue install install_rescue.sh doesn't work.


The Question is: how to install an new Rescue System on the dockstar system.
Cause the pogoplug doesn't work anymore.

Thanks in advance...

I have solved my problem. The file /etc/fw_env.config was already present but with the wrong contents. As the install_recue.sh script did not overwrite it, the fw_printenv and fw_setenv commands did not work.

After fixing this, it is now OK.

Is there any way to get the rescue boot with arcNumber=2998 ? Or maybe a way to restore the pogoplug system, because this rescue system is not really useful as a rescue as it can't boot...

Re: Recovery System ready for use
February 04, 2011 02:24PM
Can't install the rescue system after installing openwrt because the flash (/dev/mtd) layout has changed. mtd1 and mtd2 are now too small to hold rescue images. The changes are shown at the openwrt website:

http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/seagate/dockstar#flashlayout

I can't figure out how to change the mtd partition sizes from openwrt. Is it using the mtd_utils? I can erase and write to mtd but can't seem to delete and resize partitions. Can they be deleted and resized when booted into openwrt without crashing the Dockstar?

If the mtd partion sizes are set from uboot (I have the Jeff's modified uboot already written to mtd0), can the rescue system be installed using tftp in uboot?

I got the recovery system installed over my openwrt install. Afterwards I was able to get debian installed on a flash drive. This was a trial and error process, especially writing mtd2. For some reason the write never completed-- the dockstar hung during the nand write.e step. I waited a few minutes the first couple of times and then I waited about half an hour but it never finished. None the less, the write appears to have been successful as I have a working recovery system. I was then able to write debian to an external flash drive. In case anyone is in the same boat, here are the steps I used:

Boot into uboot-- I had already installed Jeff's modified uboot but I don't see why this shouldn't work with the pre-installed uboot. Although you will probably want to upgrade when you have a working recovery system.

First, repartition the flash/mtd device:
mtdparts del uImage
mtdparts del rootfs
mtdparts del data

mtdparts add nand0 0x400000@0x100000 uImage
mtdparts add nand0 0x2000000@0x500000 root
mtdparts add nand0 0xdb00000@0x2500000 data

saveenv

Next, write mtd1 and mtd2. If the write for mtd2 hangs, let it go for a while (10s of minutes I would think should be sufficient).
mw.b 0x6400000 0xff 0x400000
tftpboot 0x6400000 uImage-mtd1.img
nand erase 0x00100000 0x00400000
nand write.e 0x6400000 0x00100000 0x400000

mw.b 0x6400000 0xff 0x2000000
tftpboot 0x6400000 rootfs-mtd2.img
nand erase 0x00500000 0x02000000
nand write.e 0x6400000 0x500000 0x2000000

saveenv

Then it was a matter of setting env variables until the thing worked. This was a somewhat tedious process-- I am sure there is an easier way to do it than how I did it. I 'setenv'ed variables to match a post on the first page of this thread until it booted properly. I then installed debian to a flash drive. More twiddling with saveenv to get usb booting properly. But everything now works.

For an explanation of uboot commands, I found http://www.denx.de/wiki/U-Boot/Documentation to be helpful.

> which steps i have to perform after make?

Please have a look at the start post of Doozan: http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?4,831,831#msg-831

To install the image you will must have a look into the install file of Doozan and change it to not download from his site but from your ftp or copy it manually by scp and to use your self compiled image.

Maybe I will have time to release a special version of it.

I have the same error as harrim4n.
using /usr/sbin/ubiformat /dev/mtd2 -s 512 -f /tmp/rootfs-mtd2.img -y
produces the same output.
Is it safe to reboot or what should I do?
Thanks

like rfanch3r in the other thread I removed the two image files, rerun the installer and all went fine.
Isn't it strange that it fails in the same spot (6%)?

Hi !

I have a little problem here on my Goflex Home.

I tried to install the recovery system and it's not booting, even on my USB key ...

The only thing i have done (and shoudn't have done I think) is "setenv arcNumber 3089"

Is the recovery system not booting with this arcNumber ?

What con I do ? I don't have a netconsole set ... I think I will use a serial cable. (Is there a tutorial on how to use and solder the serial cable ?)
