Boot hangs at "booting the kernel."

Boot hangs at "booting the kernel."
February 04, 2014 05:53PM
I have a GoFlex Home that I have been trying to get working with Debian. I have the "kirkwood-debian_rootfs.img" (from davygravy: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1015928/Kirkwood/rootfs_images/NSA320quickstart.tar.gz) on a USB flash drive. It Loads /boot/uImage and /boot/uInitrd the says its booting kernel and loading init Ramdisk but then hangs after that. Here is the bootlog:

Freebird,

Your uBoot is too old. It won't work with that rootfs. You can either:
- update uBoot
Or
- use a different rootfs

You can find both in the links in my signature. But I would try the rootfs first.

Bodhi - Thank you for the quick reply. I've taken a look at both the links in your signature and, unless I am missing something, the installation instructions for both look to be run from within a Linux system on the ARM device. All I have access to on the device is the Marvell>> prompt and the uBoot installed does not have the "fw_" commands - just the generic setenv/printenv varieties.

Is there a way to get the rootfs to a USB stick directly (rather than via deb files) or flash the updated uBoot from within the current uBoot environment?

Yes for both.

The installation for the rootfs can be done using any Linux box. If the only one available is this GoFlex Home, then you can use a Linux Live CD on a PC or Mac. The latest rootfs and instruction how to create a USB stick is in section "Updated 14 Dec 2013: Debian-3.12.0-kirkwood-tld-3".

Installation of new uBoot can be flashed at uBoot prompt using tftp. But first, please try UART booting to make sure you can have a recovery plan in case something goes wrong. See the UART instruction from davygravy.

Here is an example of flashing uBoot with tftp. This also requires another Linux box running tftp server.

There is also a method to load uBoot image directly from a USB stick.

All that said, I'd recommend you try the rootfs first because it is the safest approach (no need to mess with uBoot). After you can boot into Debian, flashing new uBoot is much easier.

I tried the rootfs on a USB stick and it got further this time but choked on what appears to be the mounting of /root. I end up in a BusyBox environment, so this is progress - hope i can get past this last hurdle. I'll post the bootlog details later today when I have access to the GFH machine.

Here is the bootlog showing the failed boot into debian and resulting in BusyBox environment. I followed the directions in the 14 Dec 2013 post. I am using ext2 for rootfs_type in uBoot, on the USB stick and edited /media/sdb1/etc/fstab /dev/rootto ext2 if that helps at all. Thanks again for any help!

Re: Boot hangs at "booting the kernel."

Freebird,

Your uBoot installation was

Quote

U-Boot 2010.09 (Feb 16 2011 - 18:44:23)
UBIT v0.6

uBoot envs were setup quite differently from the standard uBoot installaton running Jeff's script. Basically the problem is in the bootargs.

Stop serial console at the count down. At the prompt, you can set this uBoot env temporarily

setenv boot_auto 'setenv rd_args rootfstype=ext2; run boot_rd'

and then
boot
see if it can boot in to Debian.

As long as you don't do saveenv at uBoot prompt, current uBoot envs are not written to NAND. All modification are gone upon shut down or restart.

Thanks - this worked great! I did a reboot and savenv and now it boots into Debian each reboot.

I can't seem to get a network connection, however. I know this is no longer a uBoot issue, but I searched the Debian section with no luck - so hoping it is still appropriate to ask for help here. Also tried editing various files based on information found in other Debian forums and only was able to get the error to change from:
No DHCPOFFERS received.
Trying recorded lease 192.168.0.15
PING 192.168.0.1 (192.168.0.1) 56(84) bytes of data.

--- 192.168.0.1 ping statistics ---
1 packets transmitted, 0 received, +1 errors, 100% packet loss, time 0ms

to:
subnet_number():inet.c:53: Addr/mask length mismatch

I know I will need to change some settings - my router is at 192.168.1.1 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. Just unsure which files to edit in order to get the DHCP client to see the router. Hoping that with your familiarity with this particular rootfs you'll be able to point me in the right direction.

Thanks again for all your help - this forum is a great resource!

You should create new thread in Debian section for this. It is very strange that the ping is 192.168.0.1 and your router is 192.168.1.1.

In the new thread post the output of

fw_printenv
cat /etc/network/interfaces
dmesg
