Thanks bodhi! I didn't realize you had replied (twice!) while I was typing my long message.

Is it OK that I've installed the new u-boot *before* installing the new kernel? And is it necessary, bad, or ok-but-not-necessary to reboot with the new u-boot but not the new kernel?

ok, to be honest I am getting confused with you jumping between doing two usb's at the same time. So lets do one then the other.

1st usb

From where you were when we left off you needed to install the new kernel which will give you the correct files to append to it to finish the u-boot install for that stick and writing to your e02. Which will leave you with the current new kernel and an updated u-boot written to the E02.

I am not positive that you did that correctly with your wording. You may have and I am just reading it wrong.

2nd usb

When you make the 2nd usb you do the rootfs instructions without the need to update u-boot since it was already done with the 1st usb. It includes the kernel at the time Debian-4.12.1-kirkwood-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2 was made so yes you would have the kernel before linux-4.13.5-kirkwood-tld-1. So you could also do the kernel install without needing to upgrade u-boot.


So if my assumptions are correct on the 1st usb redo the kernel with the update u-boot instructions.

I believe there was a problem with setting up netconsole before you did something and would get locked out on reboot. I may be mistaken but want to search the forums before you do a reboot.

1st USB ... In installing rootfs on 2nd USB I realized that I had the .dtb file that was called for in the u-boot instructions, so I copied the file to /boot/dts & finished the u-boot steps. I have *not* installed the new kernel on the 1st USB drive. I was going to wait to do that until I made sure I could boot from the 2nd USB, but maybe that's silly - as long as I'm waiting before rebooting anyway I might as well just install the new kernel. It's my understanding that I don't need to go through the rootfs steps - just the kernel 4.13.5 instructions (which are really the 4.8.0 instructions with 4.13.5 replacing 4.8.0).

2nd USB ... Great, so it sounds like I'm bootable there and can update to 4.13.5 either before or after reboot.

I'll wait to reboot until we (and by we I mean you) can confirm that there's not a problem with netconsole to worry about.


For a last bit of fog-clearing ... am I correct that fw_setenv writes onto the NAND or other persistent storage of my E02 and not onto my USB drive?

thanks again

That is what I was afraid of, you need Bodhi's new kernel and not the debian non-FDT kernel one you are running.
You can run "uname -a" to verify.

I am hoping Bodhi can answer if the following needs to be added to the u-boot environment for netconsole to not hang and lock you out when you reboot:

preboot=run preboot_nc
preboot_nc=setenv nc_ready 0; for pingstat in 1 2 3 4 5; do; sleep 1; if run if_netconsole; then setenv nc_ready 1; fi; done; if test $nc_ready -eq 1; then run start_netconsole; fi

Your last printenv did not show this.
I am out of my environment and remember there being issues with some having problems when running netconsole and since you don't have a usb tty-serial cable I don't want you to get locked out.

I don't think it writes to nand but to the linux fs which gets read and supersedes what is in u-boot/nand
when linux takes over. But I reserve the right to be wrong on this.

you can run "uname -a" to see the running kernel to verify.

I still haven't finished updating kernel so uname -a still returns:

Linux debian 3.16.0-4-kirkwood #1 Debian 3.16.48-1 (2017-09-28) armv5tel GNU/Linux
Re: Pogoplug E02 Debian Linux Installation Guide

ok finish the kernel and then finish the u-boot instructions but run "uname -a" and "fw_printenv" and post them to take a look.
Re: Pogoplug E02 Debian Linux Installation Guide

Roger that.

With this instruction:
- Set U-Boot envs for booting. The u-boot envs below are for 1st time upgrading, you don't need to do this step if you've installed the latest U-Boot for Kirkwood. Just make sure the DTB file is the correct one for your box, replace kirkwood-goflexnet.dtb below with the correct DTB name for your box. 

fw_setenv load_dtb 'ext2load usb 0:1 0x1c00000 /boot/dts/kirkwood-goflexnet.dtb'    
fw_setenv load_initrd 'ext2load usb 0:1 0x1100000 /boot/uInitrd'
fw_setenv load_uimage 'ext2load usb 0:1 0x800000 /boot/uImage'
fw_setenv usb_boot 'run load_dtb; run load_uimage; if run load_initrd; then bootm 0x800000 0x1100000 0x1c00000; else bootm 0x800000 - 0x1c00000; fi'

Should I go ahead and run those fw_setenv lines anyway because, while I've installed the new u-boot, I haven't *booted* with it yet? Or will u-boot take care of it the first time I boot?

Interestingly (maybe) my existing values of those variables looks completely different:
debian:/boot# fw_printenv load_dtb
load_dtb=echo loading DTB $dtb_file ...; load $bootdev $device $load_dtb_addr $dtb_file
debian:/boot# fw_printenv load_initrd

ok, it looks like you have finished section "C" to "DONE"

If that is correct you need go back up to "step 9" to continue.

Verify your E02 ipaddress and the system you will use as the serversip.

Don't reboot till your repost fw_printenv and uname -a after finished adjusting for netconsole.

Nice catch - I thought I had done all that because I had set ipaddr & serverip, but I must have skipped preboot & preboot_nc.

uname -a output hasn't changed yet, but I'm posting it anyway...

Since it is still showing the old debian kernel it did not work for you the first time. So I have tried to remove alot of the other stuff in the instructions for you to follow below:

Don't shutdown or reboot yet!

After the "sync" post "uname -a" and "fw_printenv" again please and "pstree -p". I do not think we will need to do u-boot again but I want to look everything over again.

uname -a still reports old kernel (I had thought it wouldn't report the new one until after I had rebooted, but your concern has to mean that was wrong)

posting a couple of commands before uname and fw_printenv since they seemed potentially relevant:

Guys,

There are too much information to absorp :) I got lost after a few new posts.

I'd suggest before rebooting, you would take a pause and verify that everything is consistent. When huge is ready to reboot, let me know and I'll show how we can do that.

I am concerned that uname -a is still showing old kernel. is it old man pill time again?
Other than that I think he is set if you wouldn't mind checking his fw_printenv.

Side note he does not have serial cable and may need to download netconsole for windows, then if all is good he may want to regen ssh-keys and change passwd.

Actually I may be able to do a serial cable - I acquired a CP2102 USB adapter and made it work with my old pink B01 pogoplug by cutting up a CD-ROM audio cable. I think the E02 has the same header on the circuit board so I should be able to make a serial connection work - I just haven't pulled the case apart because I've been able to SSH into it.

(also I'd be surprised if I'm not the old man in this scenario)

No! Sorry, I may or may not have been known to keep installing the kernel when I meant to install a new rootfs but I can't remember.

That's OK. It is still running the old kernel.

Serial console is always preferred.

However, if we are careful and double check everything, then chance is that it will be OK.

@hughe,

So let me know before you reboot.

THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT!!!! lol ... joking ... you guys are the best.

with that out of the way, should I reboot this thing and see what happens? (in other words, does my fw_printenv output look ok or is there anything else to verify?)

OK. So now is the time to check everything. Usually if you have the UART-booting enbale plug such as Pogo V4, GoFlexHome/Net, then I'd say we are less cautious. But with Pogo E02, it is prudent to be more cautious. So the next post, I will list the commands, you'd execute them and post the entire log here.

Please excute all commands in one session (pretend you have not post any information before). That's the only way to check if everything is consistent.

Check system state:
uname -a 
dpkg -l | grep linux-image
ls -lart /lib/modules/ -d
cat /proc/mtd
dmesg | grep -i bad
mount

Now given you have installed the latest u-boot 2016.05-tld-1 without seeing any error during flash_erase and nandwrite ( if not please say so)

Check the envs:
cat /etc/fw_env.config
fw_printenv

Check rootfs (assuming this USB rootfs is the only one USB drive plugged in):

ls -latr /boot
ls -latr /boot/dts/kirkwood-*pogo*
