Debian on iomega storcenter ix4-200d: succes!
July 12, 2015 12:30PM
I want to report that I managed to get the 3.18.5 rootfs running on a Iomega storcenter ix4-200d.
After a lot research about the device tree and fiddling around with dts files I also managed to get the four sata ports and dual gigabit ports to work. There is a second sata controller on the PCI bus, and the ethernet interfaces had to be configured based on a very old kernel patch I found online that never made it into the kernel (http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/linux-arm-kernel/2009-November/003906.html)

I have not managed to get the gpio or i2c devices working since it is very hard (not impossible, but a lot of hassle) to actually get the source code for this NAS. Lenovo wants a cheque or money order to cover expenses before they will mail it to you on a cd. (https://lenovo-na-en.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/34787)

The uboot does not support a separate dtb, so it has to be appended to the kernel (see bodhi's excellent instructions in http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,12096)

I hope this helps someone else trying to run debian on their ix4!
Edit: added info about the serial port.

@damacc,

Cool! thanks for your contribution! I'll add this DTS to the next release.

In the mean time, do you have serial console connected? if you do, please post the serial console boot log.

I'll try this soon, because I get into troubles on the stock os while transfering files from this on my linux box
every 1,8 gb the transfer gets stuck (samba, ftp) no problems on windows 7 or 8.1

damacc
could you confirm this?
if yes, is this the same on debian?

another question: does the display is working on debian?

Hello everybody

I'm very happy to hear that someone managed to get debian running on ix4-200d.
I have two of that boxes, but I didn't understand the install procedure of debian on them.

What documents do I need to read to understand the procedure?

Can anyone help me with that, please?

Thank you!

@DaMacc,

If you have a chance, could you print out the flash information:

mtdinfo -a

If the command is not available, install it:

apt-get install mtd-utils

I've also noticed that you did not pass the mtdparts definition to the kernel bootargs, so it will show whatever in the DTS definition. And it's OK. I only want to confirm the sector size for this box NAND memory.

@DaMacc,

Could you do a nanddump:

nanddump --omitoob --noecc --file=ix4-200d-mtd0.kwb /dev/mtd0

Please post the output and attach the mtd0 dump here.

Hi damacc,

Reto's ix4 box has been fixed:

http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?3,25120,25698#msg-25698

However, to make it a functional u-boot, we need u-boot tools in Debian to print/set u-boot envs. We'll need to find blparam binary in stock OS.

If you could, connect with serial console and boot to stock OS. The blparam binary should be somewhere in stock rootfs. If you could, search for it:

find / -name '*blparam*'

And please attach the binary here.

Hey Bodhi,

The ix4 boxes I got were trash picked and did not come with an OS or hard drives. I did some research and the OS is actually on the hard drives of the unit, the flash only contains some kind of loader that loads the OS. This is probably why they were thrown away, since as soon as the hard disks fail the unit is no longer 'usable'. The firmware however seems available at https://lenovo-na-en.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/22315/kw/2.1.38.22294. It might be possible to extract the required binaries from there.

Thanks damacc,

That's ok. I'll dig out my old blparam binary to see if still work the same way. I was just being careful and wanted to use the one from this box. But I think it's very likely the same.

Hi,

I also buy a NAS and I have some questions :

You can use the LCD screens ? Or is missing drivers ?

I have also some error on the NAND :

bodhi,

I have a curently working setup, with 4.4 kernel and Debian 8.3 rootfs on usb key, and OpenMediaVault on it.

I only point this error on my system, as i see error on sata is for every one. But error on Nand no.

Have you an idea to correct the nand error ? To not spam my log ^^.

Val532,

Does your mtdparts in the kernel command line look like this?
Kernel command line: console=ttyS0,115200 mtdparts=orion_nand:0xa0000@0x0(uboot),0x10000@0xa0000(env),0x228000@0xb0000(zImage),0x300000@0x2d8000(initrd),32m@0x0(flash) root=LABEL=rootfs rootdelay=10

And you could take mtdparts arg out all together, since we don't have those working yet anyway.

Hi there, newbie here: do I need serial connection to update/replace the ix4-200d OS ?

Is possible to obtain a "firmware update hack" like the official Lenovo one that simply upgrades from USB key ?

Thanks in advice !

First post here, sorry me if i say some dumb thing. I'm a rather log linux/debian user, but i've a little experience on ARM, mostly OpenWRT.

Someone gift me a ix4-200d. The machine was in decent shape, who land me say that was retired because ''does not work'' (generically).
After receiving id, and googling a bit, i've found a way to reset to default state and enable SSH.
Disks seems in decent shape, probably one is fault, but anyway the system (that reside in disk) works as expected. The system seems a debian 4, rather castrated (eg, there's dpkg, but /var/lib/dpg get removd).

After that, i've turned to a friend that work on embedded world, that find the serial. It took some month to do, and also i've other thing to do. Anyway, i'm here.

Two question:

1) having SSH and serial access to the box, there's something i can do before trying to install debian on it? Please, say me and i will provide that info...

2) it is not clear what i have to do; If i've understood well, i've:
a) get from that post the link to current kernel/initrd, put on a USB thumbdrive
b) via serial get into u-boot prompt, and boot (directly on usb thumbdrive, or via tftp) the kernel and initrd

I'm not clear:
c) if an upgrade of u-boot is mandatory or not
d) if a modification of uboot environment is mandatory, or not
e) if there's some rule to follow on partitioning (i'm used to MBR and UEFI)

Again, sorry. And thanks.

OK. There's some way to ''save'' the current uboot environment?

OK, i will do some tests. I'm going on holiday, so don't expect quick answers...

After doing the tests with the USB thumbdrive, there's some way to save it ''permanently'' on flash?

No. We are installing Debian on external drive only. Not on NAND.
