I did everything from instruction from install page including change for mac address, pogo machine ID and the rest but now pogo cant boot, neither with nor without usb flash. I get pogo sign green flashing and cannot connect by SSH.

Did you set up netconsole? or do you have serial console? if you do pls post the boot log. If you did not set up netconsole, and don't have serial console, then post the log of what you did during the installation.

The green light flashing always or did it change to orange and back to green?

Green light flashing for about 15sec then stops for sec or two. This repeats.
Unfortunately I have nothing of logs, I did setup netconsole with right IP addresses.
Actually, everything went 'well' during installation:
1. checked fw_env.config and mtd partitions
2. ethaddrs saved
3. did nanddump of mtd0 and saved envs in current_envs.txt
4. no bad blocks
5. extracted tar -xf uboot.2014.07-tld-2.pogo_e02.bodhi.tar
6. erased mtd0 - expected output
7. Wrote image to nand mtd0 OK
8. flashed u-boot envs image
9. checked with fw_printenv
10. Set up netconsole
11. Before reboot changed xxxx in:
fw_setenv mtdparts 'xxxxxxxxx'
fw_setenv rootfstype 'xxxx'
fw_setenv ethaddr 'xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx'
and checked with fw_printenv again

and now we have this conversation....
Hi.
I'm trying netconsole, my env is:

ethprime=egiga0
ethact=egiga0
ethaddr=5C:F4:AB:40:5B:23
ipaddr=192.168.0.100
netmask=255.255.255.0
serverip=192.168.0.254

but if I simply do a
ping 192.168.0.254
Using egiga0 device
ping failed; host 192.168.0.100 is not alive

Of course, if I boot into debian (same cable, switch port, etc), it pings fine.

Is there smth missing in my env?
Or, might it be related to speed/duplex ? (I recently changed my home router/switch...)

Thx!

@Davide,

Sometimes if your network environment is noisy, you have to do a few pings before it get connected. That's why I've changed the instruction to set up netconsole to do 5 pings instead of 1 like we used to do.

FYI, on another scenario. U-Boot netconsole is flaky! the code has a flaw in that sometime when it has a false positive, it would go into a busy loop and take 2 minutes to get a time out, and it would hang the box at that point for 2 minutes.

miksi,

Try connecting with netconsole, it will be obvious what went wrong. This flashing green LED indicates u-boot is running, but it never tried to load the kernel.

Do you boot with Arch or Debian rootfs? does its file system match u-boot rootfstype env? I recall Arch recent installation use Ext4.

One quick way to verify your installation was good, you could boot with Debian 3.16 rootfs:

sigh - same issue :(

It takes ~10sec each retry

I can see from switch that link is 10 Half Duplex - I would expect 100FDx ??

can I check/set speed/duplex from within u-boot ?

That's a strange problem! I remember clearly that netconsole works on the NSA325 in my environment. Unfortunately my NSA325v2 is not at home so I can't do the test.

Did it ever work for you on this box? Try to ping the router from the NSA325 u-boot, see what you'll get.

@Davide,

Further thought, what if you flash my u-boot back (instead of using your current build)? I wonder if I'll need to verify what's has changed from the GitHub.

I think I never tried with NSA325, actually. I tried in the past with my DLINK and Lacie, and both worked.
Can't ping the router (192.168.0.254)

I'm more inclined to think it may be duplex/speed... that's strange it's 10HDx instead of 100FDx - I'll try another switch or crossover cable with my pc first.

Perhaps a cold start test would help narrow down possibilities.

Box doesn't appear on network and also no luck with Debian 3.16 rootfs.
What hardware do I need for serial console?
Maybe I could try with raspberry pi JTAG?
@miksi,

Yup, it is hard to tell what could have been the problem without the installation log. And if netconsole was not set up properly or can't connected now, then serial console is the only way to tell. The LED behavior indicates that u-boot did not attempt to load the kernel at all, so it is likely some u-boot env settings problem.

See this thread for serial console hardware:

I've done some more tests (cold/warm):
- connection to another switch: same problem
- connection with cross cable: same problem

Then, just to be sure, I booted into debian and tried to ping: no problem.
Then, I rebooted and stopped into u-boot.
This time the ping command worked at 1st try!

So it seems to me that the kernel is doing some initialization of the mii/phy that either I am not doing (missing env ?), or u-boot is not doing.

Can anyone confirm if they have same problem (Cold boot, serial cable attached, try to ping devices on same subnet) ?

@bodhi: which u-boot version should I rollback for test? the one in this thread ? (tld-3 ?)


Thx.

I'm considering raspberry pi for JTAG purposes since I got one but ss it possible to connect it also in serial mode directly to pogo without any usb ttl convertors. I considering this also while waiting for adapter just to see if serial console is possible.

Yes. tld-3 for NSA325.

> Yes. tld-3 for NSA325.

Ok done, same issue: cold/warm start no ping; if I boot in debian (kernel 4.0.4) and then reboot, u-boot works
And if I later reset in u-boot, it keeps working.

Sigh, I wrote the u-boot button command just to use it for netconsole... grr :(

Would you mind checking my env ? Maybe it's something silly I forgot??

Today
my friend brought me a bricked tplink1043nd router and we successfully managed to revive it using raspberry pi and its dedicated tx,rx,gnd pins. No need for usb-ttl convertor. Also, we used putty directly on raspbian. Jst connectors arrived today (among other things) so pogo will get unbrick treatment tomorrow.
FYI,

netconsole seems to be broken in the latest NSA325 and NSA320 u-boot . I am troubleshooting this problem, and will report back!

I have searched but I am unable to find it. Can anyone point me to 2014.07-tld-3 for Pogo E02, please?

Just waiting on bits for serial console as I very unluckily, didn't realise that my IP changed on my mac (forgot to reserve once I started using ethernet instead of wifi, weeks ago) and I can't get into netconsole.

My E02 is up.... but ssh and every other port is closed.
Starting Nmap 6.47 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2015-07-25 02:44 BST
Nmap scan report for 192.168.0.xx
Host is up (0.00049s latency).
PORT   STATE  SERVICE
22/tcp closed ssh

Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 1.33 seconds

Been hunting around for solutions but I think I might be stuck until that usb to ttl turns up.

My plan last night was to install this uboot, went fine, no errors (as far as I could tell anyway by comparing to others in this thread), install rescue system (http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?4,7915) and also the latest kernel and rootfs (http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,12096). Got to the point of installing uboot and tried to reboot into my alarm usb and here I am.

If I sound like I'm new to this, I am. Got two E02's about a month ago and I've had endless problems with corruption, I believe and always unable to ssh back in. Got one running fine, it's just this one I decided that as I have the most problems with it, I would follow this tutorial, in hope that it would have less issues booting.

I don't usually post on forums because I can usually find the info I need by searching and putting things together myself, this time, I feel like I am in need of help. At this point after so many reinstalls of alarm, weeks of working on this, I am about ready to say please someone tutor me, and pay for their time! Seriously, I do need to get this up and running as quickly as possible, hate to get personal here but my dad is coming out of hospital soon and I've hundreds of things to do. I want to get this finished before he comes out so my time will be free for helping to care for him. Plus I know he will find this useful :)

Anyways nice meeting you all :) I'm sure I will be back, probably tomorrow or today... it's 3.40am here lol

While you're waiting for the serial module, you could try to download Debian rootfs and put it on USB, try to boot with it. See this post for how to create a Debian 3.16 rootfs:
http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?3,22523,22546#msg-22546

The idea is once you can boot into a running system, you can fix your ALARM rootfs, because we can see the problem better.

Wishing your dad the best recovery! Post back here and we'll get you back up, hopefully in time for more important stuff :)

*edit*
I cannot believe I did not think of this, how embarrassing! I'm connected by ssh to debian now :D I'll keep this one as a little rescue usb. Thank you very much bodhi :)

I'll get netconsole running, definitely first thing. I have no problem starting again with my main usb and leaving alarm in favour of latest debian from the thread you gave.

I set up netconsole, with my new ip. I took so long to reply because I'm trying to work this out....I did configure netconsole last time but my ip had changed out of the blue and then wasn't even able to to test this.

Before reboot I get nc listening, in a new terminal window, with 'nc -ul 6666', then I reboot the pogo and this is the next bit that isn't working...wait for led to go off then: 'nc -u 192.168.x.xx 6666' - saw somewhere else to do 'nc -lu 6666', still not getting anything come up. Stumped.

Cool!

Netconsole envs:
ipaddr=192.168.0.xx
serverip=192.168.0.xx

These should be real IP (eg. 192.168.0.100, 192.168.0.200,....). So if the static IP of the plug is 192.168.0.100, and the static IP of the server is 192.168.0.200, then

ipaddr=192.168.0.100
serverip=192.168.0.200

And from 192.168.0.200, try:

nc -lup 6666 192.168.0.100 6666

Ah :) on Mac/Ubuntu it's probably netcat bsd and it is problematic. You should use netcat traditional, check which one you are using.

And try either:
nc -lup 6666 192.168.0.15 6666
or
nc -kup 6666 192.168.0.15 6666

  -o, --output=FILE          output hexdump traffic to FILE (implies -x)
  -p, --local-port=NUM       local port number
  -r, --randomize            randomize local and remote ports
  -s, --source=ADDRESS       local source address (ip or hostname)
  -t, --tcp                  TCP mode (default)
  -T, --telnet               answer using TELNET negotiation
  -u, --udp                  UDP mode
  -v, --verbose              verbose (use twice to be more verbose)
  -V, --version              output version information and exit
  -x, --hexdump              hexdump incoming and outgoing traffic
  -w, --wait=SECS            timeout for connects and final net reads
  -z, --zero                 zero-I/O mode (used for scanning)

Remote port number can also be specified as range.  Example: '1-1024'

So, I tried:
nc -l -u -p 6666 &
# and got...
[1] 74703

but then, nothing after:
nc -l -u 192.168.0.15 6666

I'll keep trying lol :)

Hi Dannii,

I've just remember that you have 2 Pogo E02s :) You should try running netconsole one Pogo and connect to the other Pogo using native nc in the Debian rootfs. This is the easiest way to connect.

After you've verified your setup is working, then worry about connecting the Mac to the Pogo. Usually, it's the netcat binary that is the problem, but sometime also firewall on the Mac. Try turnning off OSX firewall temporarily.

And you need to use only one command like I've posted above.

Spent hours trying all different combinations found in the forum and elsewhere... via mac, alarm on the other pogo, no firewall on mac so it wasn't that, when I install netcat via brew, it installed the gnu one, still everything I try doesn't work. Theres two things I can try... restart my router and use ubuntu in parallels - didn't really want to do this, but I can.

The final thing I can try is my usb to ttl, once I got the cd to sound card cable/plug - believe it or not, there's not many places online in the uk that sell these, although my dad might have some somewhere.

I usually always find a way to do something... when it comes to pi's (got two) and pogos (excluding my last problem that you helped me fix lol). I've tried so many different combinations. I just cannot believe that nothing works.

Thank you for your help bodhi :)
