Leggo,

http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,25473,26166#msg-26166

To keep it simple I specified the embedded DTB approach. But as usual we should use separate DTB. I will modify u-boot thread to include that.

Leggo,

I sent you PM on a different topic :)

Houston, we have a problem:

The box I have has not booted to the HP OS since I received it - I think somebody borked it experimenting.

However, with serial console I was able to boot using the stock u-boot into your 4.4 Debian rootfs.

I successfully flashed the new uboot to mtd0. However, it appears I have no mtd2 to flash the env to:

root@debian:~# flashcp -v uboot.2014.07-tld-3.environment.64K.img  /dev/mtd2
While trying to open /dev/mtd2 for read/write access: No such file or directory
root@debian:~# cat /proc/mtd
dev:    size   erasesize  name
mtd0: 00100000 00001000 "spi0.0"
root@debian:~#

I installed mtd-utils to have flashcp on the 4.4 rootfs. What instruction do I use to create mtd2 so I can flash to it?

Leggo,

You are supposed to follow the instrction in the u-boot thread :)


Quote

2. Verify the Debian rootfs envs set up. Modify or add the fw_env.config file with the content below.

3. Verify the MTD flash definition in the current running system. Note the mtd0 and mtd2 definition, they must be identical to your current mtd0 and mtd2. Refer to the working thread for instruction if your MTD flash definition is not as shown below.

Since you have not set up MTDs in the kernel bootargs (this thread has gotten too long to go through, can't blame you), here in the u-boot instruction:

Quote

6. Reference your saved current_envs.txt in step 1 and restore box specific info in u-boot envs.

a. Modify envs (replace xx below with your box specific settings)

fw_setenv arcNumber '2846'
fw_setenv mtdparts 'mtdparts=spi0.0:512K(uboot),256K(sdd_firmware),64K(uboot_env),64K(permanent_uboot_env),64K(hp_env)'
fw_setenv ethaddr 'xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx'
fw_setenv ipaddr 'xxx.xxx.x.xx'
fw_setenv serverip 'xxx.xxx.0.xxx'
fw_setenv devices 'usb ide'


b. Remove envs (dtb_file is removed with assumption that your rootfs has the T5325 DTB embedded inside uImage).

fw_setenv dtb_file
fw_setenv mtdids
fw_setenv partition
fw_setenv machid


So, reboot, interrupt serial console and set it up before boot:
setenv mtdparts 'mtdparts=spi0.0:512K(uboot),256K(sdd_firmware),64K(uboot_env),64K(permanent_uboot_env),64K(hp_env)'

---------
Update:

BTW, if you had booted into the stock OS then the MTDs are already this way.

You can go ahead reboot since you know u-boot image was flashed OK. And the uboot internal default envs are good enough for booting into Debian.

I don't have an mtd2. Like I said, this box was messed up by the previous owner and hence why it was so cheap :)

Can I create a mtd2 partition from the command line in Debian or do I have to do it from serial console? Either way, how do I do create the new partition?

:)) mine too. I could not boot into stock OS.

See above. You have to do it in serial console.

Think the new env's might need adjustment:

Didn't matter, the new env's were trying to boot dtb for the E02 because it was loaded by the new env's. Once I revised the rootfs USB disk on another Debian box to boot with separate DTB then updated the env's to dtb_file=/boot/dts/kirkwood-t5325.dtb, it booted fine and did not throw a kernel panic.

Catching breath tonight after success with this thing, let me say thanks bodhi for your effort. You've brought a new life to these T5325 boxes. GOOD JOB!

Rest on your laurels for a little while :)







After you've rested and been fed your grapes (LOL) any idea how to enable the VGA display?

No idea, I don't have any VGA display to try. I'm relying on you guys to test this! have you plugged one in?

Yes tried but nothing displayed. Thought I would get at least command line but nothing.

Anybody supporting my opinion ?


EDIT: I mean, you could drive this even further, allow us to include custom uboot greeting messages!

How cool would this be, imagine telling your friends:
hey, look at my modded thinclient - ok, it don't have a touchscreen or a screen at all atmo, but it spits out a cool boot message on a serial header that is usually not connected and you can only see it on a text screen of another computer, but its there!
Geek factor going through the roof!
Probable only comparable to the moment when you showed people that you can telnet into your jailbroken iPhone or Androod and make a call!

CV,

It's not hard to do :) the logo is just a bunch of printfs in the main() function.

Have you tried this bootarg?

Stock:
thinpro_bootargs=root=/dev/sda1 rw init=/init video=xgifb splash quiet

Add to to your Linux bootargs:
set_bootargs=setenv bootargs console=ttyS0,115200 root=LABEL=rootfs rootdelay=10 $mtdparts video=xgifb splash quiet

I've decided that I'm going to forget about restoring it. I'm suppose you will keep at least one with stock OS in NAND, that way we'll have a way to look for the known unknowns :)

@bodhi
i had the same idea mulling around my head, yes i will keep one totally stock so we can look at stuff.

@Leggo
as to the display outputs, i have just mashed one of my other boxes with the standard debian install from the debian site, so i should be able to feedback some information to others on here who are looking at ways to initialise the vga output..

so far from x i have learned that we need the staitc linked .so module that comes with the xgi driver package ether from wheezy or self compiled to load x and a halfway decent xorg config, not output to screen as yet. still working on it

@CV
add me to your vote count!

I am also trying, what I can say so far that it does in effect output a VGA signal,
my monitor tells me 640x480 60Hz.

And this signal comes active when dmesg says module xgifb is loaded:

But as I said, it's 640x480 60Hz, not 800x600.

@ Gravelrash:

I just flashed your backup firmware. It keeps setting the GotoWoL status to "on", so the dumb thing keeps rebooting into WoL aka "ninja mode" even if you power off from the GUI.

I think that there is some wrong setting in the firmware, but without admin access I can't go further. What's the admin password of your backup? (I'll keep the secret, I promise) :)

Also, this now stops me from kwbooting on this box... :/

Hell, I have issues even in getting into uboot setup again.

EDIT: Found it.

there is a

WOLEnabled=Yes

in HPE envs.

It must be changed to

WOLEnabled=No

by writing

setenvh WOLEnabled No

(setenvh is the setenv supposed to write to HP envs, check the help of the stock uboot)

Now it does not go in ninja-stealth mode anymore on shutdown from GUI, and I can try kwbooting again.

theres no secret to the password, its the default one from when the system is first built

user : root
password : root


to enable admin privilieges, select the option from the bottom lower left of the screen

it looks like your experience of the WOL and kwboot issue is the same as mine with the same firmware that came with my unit... maybe its not my TTL adaptor after all ?!?!

Im nowhere near the level of "Mr Bodhi",

Im a tinkerer with a desktop/server background, so im digging into my past memories of configuring X in 1999 to see where i can go with this one.

It does not work. The u-boot ninja mode is interfering.

Fixed by changing an HP env to disable that WOL ninja crap, see the edit.

Now I can kwboot fine, and the first thing I'm going to do is nuke the current u-boot as it has already annoyed me A LOT.

Quick question for bodhi, will the kirkwood-t5325.dtb file work to boot with earlier, non-Jessie, rootfs'? I ask because I am trying to modify an existing 4.1 wheezy flash drive that has everything I need already loaded and I would like to use the T5325 for those functions.

from what i understand of .dtb files the answer should be yes as long as you have the respective kernel etc preppared.
Re: HP T5325 Thin Client Debian
March 11, 2016 06:53AM
@all

when everyone is happy that the uboot and rootfs works, we can focus on the following if you are interested?

VGA adaptor settings
already in progress and CV seems to be ahead of the game on this one.

Sound
should already be there with the ALSA settings, but like all things HP usually some tweaking is necessary

WIFI
Should be a no brainer as its been covered many times before

Bluetooth
because everything is better with Bluetooth and its been covered before on other units


Thoughts and comments?

and speaking for myself, i have recently placed an order for a 7" screen on aliexpress so i can mate it to this unit and play doom etc. :)

On my T5325 these worked without issue using the standard means to enable a USB device of these types.

EXcellent so we are just left with the config files for ALSA / pulseaudio

and
