Is it possible to have a Debian 11 Bullseye build for Pogo Armel?

Is it possible to have a Debian 11 Bullseye build for Pogo Armel?
November 07, 2021 09:15AM
I have just been experimenting with Gerbera 1.9.2 and now it's passed my testing, I want to tick it on the live system. Arrgh, The dependencies that I had to download from the testing repo have moved on from the original ones used on the test box and while they work on V1.82 on V1.92 they seem to cause the app to crash when scanning files. Manually loading the same versions means tracking through all the dependencies which has been painful. There were also something like 200 updates I could have done with a guaranteed chance of breaking my server. Excuse the waffle.

Anyway, it did get me wondering whether there were any plans to move from Buster to Bullseye or even if it was possible?

Cheers - Bob

Bob,

Unless you meant the Pogo V3. See the Kirkwood rootfs in the release thread:

Basic Debian bullseye Kirkwood rootfs for most Kirwood plugs:

On a side note, you could run the Kirkwood rootfs on the Pogo V3 too. But you will need to install the OXNAS kernel using chroot first before booting it.

Thanks for that. Sorry I didn't read that far when I did the kernel update and it didn't appear when I searched. I have another Pogo EO2 box to hack so look forward to trying a Bullseye build.

Once again - thanks for the support and help - Bob

Hi Bodhi,

I was inspired by your work of PogoPlug / Debian, started to build fresh Debian Bullseye via debootstrap and linux-image-marvell.

It works with USB/top slot but does not work with SATA; however with your version of Debian, it works for both USB & SATA,

Any specific treatment you do for the SATA?

Also, the light still yellow not green; but your version is Green.

Thanks for your hard work!

John

Which Pogoplug do you have?

If you did "build fresh Debian Bullseye via debootstrap and linux-image-marvell", then the rootfs and kernel are OK. But you also need to choose the correct DTB for your box. The DTB is used in 2 different ways.

- If you run my latest u-boot then your rootfs should have /boot/dts folder and the correct DTB for the box in this folder. This can be found in the release thread.
- If you run stock u-boot then you need to append the box DTB to uImage.

Hi Bodhi,

After switching to your dts file, everything works, SATA and Leds light, originally use the pogoplug dts file
http://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/stable/main/installer-armel/current/images/kirkwood/device-tree/

It's Pogoplug V4 & E02, yes, use your latest u-boot.

Would you please share your github url of your patch of dts and your u-boot? Would like to learn from you.

Thanks,

John
