usb key not recognized on pogo E02
March 10, 2019 09:44PM
Hi all,

I've run debian on my pogo E02 successfully sereval years. Now, my USB key died. I thus prepared a new and bigger key with the newest rootfs I found. Problem is, the pogo E02 does not like the usb key. Here is the output of the netconsole:

I've found some usb keys just aren't compatible. Mostly Kingston brand usb keys. I've had no issue with Sandisk branded ones.

It looks OK.

So now the problem is with the

Quote

EHCI timed out on TD

Like alexr mentioned above. This problem is most likely the type of the USB flash drive that was not handled well by u-boot. We have seen this for many many years here. If you switch to (my favorite brand) Sandisk, it is very likely it will show no error like this.

However, I've incorporated a permanent fix for this using rayv patch in the later version. So if you can get pass this error with a different USB flash drive, then you can update u-boot, and then mos likely it will accept most of USB flash brands.

Updated 06 Dec 2017 (replace Sheevaplug with newer version 2017.07-tld-2)

I've uploaded 2017.07-tld-1 U-Boot images for Pogo E02, GoFlexNet, GoFlex Home, Dockstar, Pogo V4/Mobile, iConnect, Netgear Stora, Sheevaplug, NSA320, NSA325, NSA310S/320S, NSA310, HP-T5325, and Dreamplug.

The HP Thin Client T5325 installation procedure is different from other Kirkwood u-boots, see this thread for installation instruction and download link..

The Marvell Dreamplug box installation procedure is different from other Kirkwood u-boots, see this thread for installation instruction and download link.

New/updated in 2017.07-tld-1 version:

- Rebase u-boot code to track mainline 2017.07.
- Incorporated patch to fix "EHCI timed out on TD" error with USB drives.
- SD cards: Use the mainline version of MMC driver for Pogo V4/Mobile and Sheevaplug
- Improve internal defautl envs.
- Fixed Sheevaplug "load" command in 2017.07-tld-2 version.

Credits:
-Thanks rayvt for the EHCI timed out on TD patch ! good works.
- Thanks Rayknight for reporting bug and testing the Sheevaplug 2017.07-tld-2 u-boot .

I've tried 4 different USB-Keys until the last one now seems to work. Below [1] is the output from the netconsole. So, thanks for your help!

But I am now encountering a different issue. As soon the 'Starting kernel ...' message appears, the pogo disappears from my network. I do not see it in the GUI of the router, I am not able to discover via any network app:

Andreas,


Looks like your rootfs was not prepared correctly. Redo it using the Debian-4.12.1-kirkwood-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2 tarball, following the instruction in the release thread. And don't do Step 4. Basically, you just need to extract it and use it as is.

Quote

Updated 24 Jul 2017:

Basic Debian stretch Kirkwood rootfs for most Kirwood plugs:

- tarball size: 188M
- install size: 488M
- The init system used in this rootfs is sysvinit . To boot with systemd, see note 2 below.
- Installed packages: nano, avahi, ntp, busybox-syslogd (log to RAM), htop, isc-dhcp-client, dialog, bzip2, nfs server/client, iperf, ethtool, sysvinit-core, sysvinit, and sysvinit-utils.
- see LED controls in /etc/rc.local, and /etc/init.d/halt
- see some useful aliases in /root/.profile
- root password: root

Download at Dropbox:

Debian-4.12.1-kirkwood-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2

md5:
bf3d29569943875df348fb5ca03b348c
sha256:
4ed5714fdb123cdb40e973f3d0754e91cd199b75a9874018f2b5dc9cfa8ae8bb

And remember to check the hash of what you download, as always.

Installation:

Installation can be done on any Linux box, with a fresh USB drive (SD card or HDD would work fine too).

Note: all steps below must be done while logging in as root user (not sudo). If you are not the root user then don't continue, because the rootfs will not work.

1. Format a new USB drive with a single Ext3 partition, and label it rootfs. If you are running the latest U-Boot for Kirkwood then you can use Ext4.

2. Mount the drive on a Linux box. cd to top level directory and extract it. It is assuming the USB drive is mounted at /media/sdb1
cd /media/sdb1
tar -xjf Debian-4.12.1-kirkwood-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2

3. Adjust fstab (optional).

Edit /media/sdb1/etc/fstab entry for root device to match the rootfstype of your rootfstype if you use Ext4 or Ext2. However, you can keep it as is without problem in booting since the kernel will figure out which file system the rootfs was formatted.

LABEL=rootfs / ext3 noatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1

4.

Not needed.

5. Done. Take this USB rootfs to your plug and cold start. After booted into Debian, see Note1 and Note2 below. It is very important that you do Note1 steps to secure your box.


Plug in the USB rootfs, Start netconsole on the other box.

Power up, interrupt the countdown
Hit any key to stop autoboot:  0

And

printenv
boot

Please post the entire netconsole log here.

Andreas,

The problem is easy. You are running new u-boot
U-Boot 2016.05-tld-1 (Jun 12 2016 - 13:23:43 -0700)
Pogo E02
But your envs are much older (looks like 2012 version).

The default envs image was not installed during the time you installed new u-boot.

Let me point you to a post that will load the default envs in a script and that will get you boot to Debian.

Andreas,

To load the default envs for U-Boot 2016.05-tld-1, see this instruction:

https://forum.doozan.com/read.php?3,29362,29390#msg-29390

Basically just put that script uboot.2016.05-tld-1.environment.scr on your USB rootfs /boot folder and run the script loading commands at u-boot promtp.

Note that the DTB name is different. Yours is Pogo E02, so the dtb_file should be set to:

setenv dtb_file '/boot/dts/kirkwood-pogo_e02.dtb'

Thanks. This does not seem to work for me, though. Running the script does not seem to function and does not seem to have any effect. And it apparently disconnect from the netconsole?


Here is the output:

I do not see any progress at that point. So, after a while (~5min) I restarted the pogo device. If I repeat these steps, I end up at the same situation.

Is my download of the script corrupt?

Andreas

Andreas,

Ah! I forgot that you only have netconsole.

The reason netconsole was disconected because the default settings are for serial connection. So some netconsole-related envs were reset to serial when you run the script. And u-boot is still running, but you've lost the TCP connection.

I will post an alternative solution.

Hi bodhi,

Thanks a lot. This worked fine for me.

One last issue: This version of uboot shoud have accepted a wide range of USB-keys, correct?

So, I have probably screwed somewhere while preparing them?

So, some follow-up questions in this regard:
- Does the partition table have to be MSDOS?
- Should that work with 'proper' USB drives, too?
- What are other potential pit-falls?

Best,
Andreas

Another follow up.

I see two warnings:

Unknown command 'ide' - try 'help'
Unknown command 'mmc' - try 'help'

These seem to not affect functionality, though.

Here is the complete log:

USB rootfs should be a reliable brand such as Sandisk. Other brands like Transcend is OK. Avoid Patriot drives at all cost.

Some older USB HDD enclosure controllers are not very good. So if you use USB HDD enclosure to house the rootfs, be aware that it might cause problem.
