Duh :) I did not remove all traces of the SoC SATA. So the regulator is stil there as 10... pointed out.

@zifxify,

> still one drive accessible

Do you mean onlly the HDD in slot 0 is enable?

using your lastest dtb without soc sata, and without setting GPIO pin 37 as high, there's only drive (drive 2) available. Enabling soc sata also enables drive 1 (slot 0)

In serial console, try to initialize the drives. Can uboot see all drives and can you list each partition’s content?

Only two drives or I am doing something wrong

Those must be 2 SoC SATA ports.

It should be in GPL source where we can find out how stock OS bring up the other 2 HDD slots.

Hi
I have two RS816 rack servers which I would love to convert to a native Debian install. Reading this thread it looks like you guys got very close and I was just wondering if you ran out of time / enthusiasm or if the answer to the how the other 2 HDD slots were brought up just wasn't apparent in the GPL source ?

I'm interested enough to take a look at the GPL but thought I'd check if I'm wasting my time first.

Richard Jackson,

What I would be interested in seeing is you could run my released rootfs Debian-4.12.4-mvebu-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2:

https://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,32146

Note that the kernel inside this rootf is linux-4.12.4-mvebu-tld-1.

With the u-boot envs set up:

https://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,76314,76534#msg-76534

And using the DTB I've uploaded in this thread before..

If you'd like to do that, then give it a try. I'll help to get that working.

I will give that a try.

First I need to replicate the data from one of the RS816 to a backup server then I can dedicate it to trying to get this to work.

I'm based in Australia and its a public holiday here tomorrow so it might be early next week before I can provide feedback on testing.

In the meantime thanks for offering to help

Had a quick go and ended up with a kernel division by zero so I have got something wrong, I'm away till Sunday when I will have more time but if anything shouts out let me know.

All commands below as root

For the rootfs
parted /dev/sda
mkpart primary 0% 100%
q
mkfs.ext3 -L rootfs /dev/sda1
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
tar -C /mnt -jxvf Downloads/Debian-4.12.4-mvebu-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2
cd /mnt/boot
cp -a zImage-4.12.4-mvebu-tld-1 zImage

For the uImage I wasn't sure what address I was meant to use so tried 0x00008000 and 0x1000000 with the same end result.

cd /mnt/boot
cp -a zImage-4.12.4-mvebu-tld-1  zImage.fdt
cat dts/armada-385-synology-rs816.dtb  >> zImage.fdt
mv uImage uImage.orig
mkimage -A arm -O linux -T kernel -C none -a 0x1000000 -e 0x1000000 -n Linux-4.12.4-mvebu-tld-1 -d zImage.fdt  uImage
sync

Realized I should be loading the dtb from tftp not embedding it but I'm not sure how to change my env's to pull in the rs816.tdb and still do the spi stuff. Sorry if this is a bit of noob question but this is my first time working with tftp and u-boot.

setenv ipaddr 192.168.1.250
setenv serverip 192.168.1.2
setenv usb_setup 'setenv usbActive 1; setenv usbType 3; usb start;'                
setenv load_dtb_addr 0x1000000
setenv load_initrd_addr 0x3000000
setenv load_image_addr 0x02000000
setenv load_image 'echo loading zImage from tftpserver ...; tftpboot $load_image_addr zImage'
setenv load_initrd 'echo loading uInitrd from tftpserver ...; tftpboot $load_initrd_addr uInitrd'
setenv load_dtb 'echo loading uInitrd from tftpserver ...; tftpboot $load_dtb_addr armada-385-synology-rs816.dtb'
setenv set_bootargs 'setenv bootargs "console=ttyS0,115200 root=LABEL=rootfs rootdelay=10 $mtdparts earlyprintk=serial"'
setenv bootcmd_exec 'echo Booting Debian . . .; run usb_setup;  run set_bootargs; setenv fdt_skip_update yes; setenv initrd_high 0xffffffff; run load_image; run load_initrd; run load_dtb; bootz $load_image_addr $load_initrd_addr $load_dtb_addr'
setenv bootcmd 'mw 0xf10a2620 0x251;mw 0xf10a2e20 0x251;usb xhciinit; run bootcmd_exec; run bootspi'

Which boots to

If I include the following line it just loads the default dtb and crashes out early.
setenv load_dtb 'echo loading DTB from flash ...; sf probe 0 50000000; sf read $load_dtb_addr $spi_pt_addr_dt $spi_pt_size_dt'

I don’t think you should load the DTB from flash. I’ve uploaded a DTB in this thread before.

So the envs should change to reflect that.

I will take a look and post later today.

Richard,

The DTB was from this post:

https://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,76314,76884#msg-76884

Please do what zifxify did in this post (right after):

https://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,76314,76889#msg-76889


I think going back a few post from there, you'll see how the envs were setup to load the kernel files from tftp.

@bohdi
I think I may have explained myself badly.

I am already loading the dtb you provided via tftp by replacing the original env variable as follows:

Original
setenv load_dtb 'echo loading DTB from flash ...; sf probe 0 50000000; sf read $load_dtb_addr $spi_pt_addr_dt $spi_pt_size_dt'

New
setenv load_dtb 'echo loading DTB from tftpserver ...; tftpboot $load_dtb_addr armada-385-synology-rs816.dtb'

This boots all the way to
random: fast init done

Which is the same as zifxify found before he then moved on to the ds116 dtb which allowed him to boot to Debian login

My question was how do I add the missing $spi* variables to my replacement line in the event they may be important ?

Unfortunately zifxify posts tend to quote from >>boot onwards and hence I can't see any additional env's he might be adding.

Ah. Thanks for refreshing my memory. We should use the ds116 dtb. Later, when things worked OK, I'll make a new DTS cloned from that for the RS816.

These are predefined in stock u-boot envs. You should see them in serial console. In the event you want them harded code then just replace each with the real hex number

printenv

zifxify saved the envs in previous posts before that, so you need to go back a few post right before it.

Ah, I feel a bit dumb now! I had seen those spi envs posted by zifxify but hadn't thought of them in the correct context.

Just to confirm I have now tried with those envs set using the armada-385-synology-rs816.dtb and boot still gets stuck at the same point.

Once you have a new dtb based on ds116 I will give it a try.

Thanks once again for putting your time into getting this to work

The actual boot from above which although gets stuck does show all four sata ports unlike with the ds116 boot.

That's interesting! I don't recall much about the zifxify's ds116 boot attempt and why we did not see 4 SATA ports.

But based on your testing observation, the armada-385-synology-rs816.dtb is correct regarding 4 SATA ports. And the DS116 dtb is correct in all other DTS hardware nodes (it booted all the way into Debian).

So I think a merge of both would hopefully be better. I'll take a stab at merging them.

Some kind of hybrid dtb is probably the answer, although I say that with no real knowledge of how they work, but just as a reminder you have already done some hybrid rs816 ds116 which show 4 ports on the console and boot to Debian but fail to bring them up due to soc vs pci or something like that.

Anyway I'm very keen to try anything you would like me to. My retired from production RS816 is available for testing for as long as it takes.

Hi Richard,

Here is the merged version armada-385-synology-rs816.dtb and armada-385-synology-rs816.dts.

Please try.

Same outcome i.e. stuck at
random: fast init done

Just checking I am doing this correctly I'm only loading the .dtb from tftp am I supposed to do something with the .dts as well ? hope I'm not messing this up.

Output from this trial

Richard,

No, only the DTB is loaded from tftp. DTS is the source code that I attached for info.

The fact that it got stuck again told me that the first 2 SATA ports are from the SoC, not PCI! This is something that can be seen in GPL source if we take a close read.

The issue right now is if we use SoC SATA then it will boot OK (therefore the first 2 ports must have been connected to the SoC pins. Note that this is how all other Armada 38x SoC set up in their boxes.).

Now, but we don't know how to define the PCI nodes to get the other 2 SATA ports activated. But that probably just a specific configuration for this box that we hopefully can find out.

=====

I'm going back to the DS166 SoC SATA definition so we can boot. Stay tuned for an updated DTB.

OK here this version we are going back to SoC SATA ports for the first 2. Please try.

Hi
Same outcome I double checked I was using latest dtb and re-ran just in case.

Probably save time if I setup a profile, I will do that now

Just done a run with the ds116.dtb from the dts folder in your rootfs and confirm this boots to debian

root@debian:~# lsblk

Let me know if you want a particular output.

Richard,

So that was a failed attemp to guess what the PCI nodes should be (apparently they are not similar to other Armada boxes).

We need stock boot log, and then if no info can be extracted from there, we need to see the GPL source code.

Update:
zifxify has posted stock boot log in the first post.

By the way, this definition make u-boot envs available in Debian.

cat /etc/fw_env.config

# MTD device name       Device offset   Env. size       Flash sector size        Number of sectors
/dev/mtd1   0x3E0000   0x10000   0x1000

Also zifxify has identified these GPIO.

Quote

with the rackstation in front of you, from left to right drives numbered 1 to 4.

GPIO pin 15 (drive {2})
GPIO pin 37 (drive {3,4})

So I think the correct approach is to incorporate those GPIOs into the current ds116 DTB.

----

I don't recall zifxify post the link to any GPL source? I would much prefer GPL source to get info from, brute-force hacking is not a really good way if GPL info is available.
