We are done! thanks for your contribution :)

It really does not matter, but the last one is a little more consistent with what we already have in the u-boot thread. So it is preferable.

Happy to see that's ok for dito

I'm still at the same point : it does not boot and my router does not give a dhcp lease to my pogoplug E02

Do I need a serial cable ?

Thanks

what's the status of the pogoplug light?

I have 2 usb keys :

one with Arch Linux for ARM that boots and that I can SSH (green fixed led)

one with Debian rootfs 3.16 from bodhi with modified uEnv_arch_uboot_boot_debian.txt that doesn't seem to boot (no light and no dhcp lease)

vtx,

Boot into Arch and get the listing of your u-boot envs:
fw_printenv

And while you are in Arch, also get the dmesg output and post here.
dmesg


If you have serial console, post the entire bootlog.

Re: Booting Debian Kirkwood rootfs from latest Arch U-Boot
September 17, 2015 03:22AM
vtx,

The LED light kept blinking, then there was something wrong with your rootfs.

You should:

1. Set up netconsole (use the instruction at Arch site). Do this first if you can. This will make it easier to troubleshoot booting problem.
2. Make sure the Debian rootfs was created following the instruction very closely (single Ext3 partition, prepare this as root user, ....)
3. Following the instruction to redownload the env file inthe first post. And prepare the rootfs label for the rootfs.

If you still have trouble booting, post the entire log of how did you download rootfs, preparing it ... everything you can.

Hello,

I'm trying to boot from the usb with rootfs installed. Extracted the archive, edited the fstab and copied the uEnv.txt and change the dtb to goflexhome.

Here's my nc log:

And interrupt netconsole at countdown, and

printenv

x010,

Looks like your uEnv.txt does not quite match with the current envs for this Arch u-boot version. The original post in this thread was for Arch u-boot 2014.x. Your current Arch u-boot is 2016.x

So this is new uEnv.txt content.

bootdir=/boot
bootfilem=uImage
fdtdir=/boot/dts
fdtfile=kirkwood-goflexhome.dtb
rdfile=uInitrd
root=LABEL=rootfs

Edit the /boot/uEnv.txt to have the above lines. And try booting with it.

x010,

Here is the revised /boot/uEnv.txt content:

bootdir=/boot
bootfilem=uImage
fdtdir=/boot/dts
fdtfile=kirkwood-goflexhome.dtb
rdfile=uInitrd
root=LABEL=rootfs
loadimage=load ${devtype} ${bootpart} ${loadaddr} ${bootdir}/${bootfilem}


To boot the Debian rootfs properly, an extra step is needed during netconsole boot.

Power up, interrupt netconsole at countdown, and enter this command (copy and paste to the u-boot prompt):

setenv startboot 'usb start; ide reset; for devtype in usb ide; do  setenv devnum 0; while ${devtype} dev ${devnum}; do  echo ${devtype} found on device ${devnum}; setenv bootpart ${devnum}:1; echo Checking for: ${bootdir}/uEnv.txt ...; if test -e ${devtype} ${bootpart} ${bootdir}/uEnv.txt; then  load ${devtype} ${bootpart} ${loadaddr} ${bootdir}/uEnv.txt; env import -t ${loadaddr} ${filesize}; echo Loaded environment from ${bootdir}/uEnv.txt; echo Checking if uenvcmd is set ...; if test -n ${uenvcmd}; then  echo Running uenvcmd ...; run uenvcmd; fi; fi; if run loadimage; then if env exists root; then echo root has been defined by user; else part uuid ${devtype} ${bootpart} uuid; setenv root PARTUUID=${uuid}; fi;  run mainargs; if run loadfdt; then  if run loadrd; then  bootm ${loadaddr} ${rdaddr}:${filesize} ${fdtaddr}; else  bootm ${loadaddr} - ${fdtaddr}; fi; else  if run loadrd; then echo Booting uImage with initrd;  bootm ${loadaddr} ${rdaddr}:${filesize}; else  bootm ${loadaddr}; fi; fi; else  echo No kernel found; fi; setexpr devnum ${devnum} + 1; done; done;'

EDIT: see x010's post below for more info about the env size limit (startboot is too long, need to be broken up).

And then

boot

Re: Booting Debian Kirkwood rootfs from latest Arch U-Boot
August 14, 2019 07:57AM
bodhi,

After i copied the setenv command to the netconsole prompt i hit enter and i get a duplicated code display, after that i cannot boot or even get the help display.

I've attached a screenshot.

I tried to copy the setenv command to the uEnv.txt like so:

startboot=usb start; ide reset; for devtype in usb ide; do  setenv devnum 0; while ${devtype} dev ${devnum}; do  echo ${devtype} found on device ${devnum}; setenv bootpart ${devnum}:1; echo Checking for: ${bootdir}/uEnv.txt ...; if test -e ${devtype} ${bootpart} ${bootdir}/uEnv.txt; then  load ${devtype} ${bootpart} ${loadaddr} ${bootdir}/uEnv.txt; env import -t ${loadaddr} ${filesize}; echo Loaded environment from ${bootdir}/uEnv.txt; echo Checking if uenvcmd is set ...; if test -n ${uenvcmd}; then  echo Running uenvcmd ...; run uenvcmd; fi; fi; if run loadimage; then if env exists root; then echo root has been defined by user; else part uuid ${devtype} ${bootpart} uuid; setenv root PARTUUID=${uuid}; fi;  run mainargs; if run loadfdt; then  if run loadrd; then  bootm ${loadaddr} ${rdaddr}:${filesize} ${fdtaddr}; else  bootm ${loadaddr} - ${fdtaddr}; fi; else  if run loadrd; then echo Booting uImage with initrd;  bootm ${loadaddr} ${rdaddr}:${filesize}; else  bootm ${loadaddr}; fi; fi; else  echo No kernel found; fi; setexpr devnum ${devnum} + 1; done; done;

But the same zImage magic error appeared.

Edit:

Nvm... After some experiments i discovered the u-boot has a line limit that doesn't let copy/paste the whole line of the setenv command.

After that it booted fine. Thank you for you trouble

PS: Can you tell me why adding the startboot at the uEnv doesn't boot the image and also if there's any way to override the line limit.

Cool!

The command line size limit is hardcoded so we can't do much about it other than breaking it up to 2, or 3 commands. Internally, it is OK to have a really long command. But this case seems to be the hush parser limitation, not envs tool.

You can try it in Debian using fw_setenv to see if it will be accepted. Ie. using a temporary name such as startboot_debian to see if it works.

The reason it does not work in uEnv.txt is because the uEnv.txt is loaded by this command itself! so startboot can not be redefined inside uEnv.txt.

bodhi,

I've change the original Arch startboot to Debian via fw_setenv and added the a new startboot_arch so i can boot between distros. Everything works great.

Just a quick question is it possible to boot with systemd since i don't have bootargs on my fw_env?

Thank you for taking the time to help me out.

Add this line to your uEnv.txt

mainargs=setenv bootargs console=${console} ${mtdparts} root=${root} rw rootwait ${optargs} ${ncargs} init=/bin/systemd

In the later Debian version, they moved the systemd binary so if init=/bin/systemd does not enable booting systemd, search the forum for hints.

Hi

I have installed uboot and arch sucessfully from this site [1] successfully. But now i want to use debian and have tried Debian-5.2.9-kirkwood-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2 from [2] with the revised uEnv.txt from this thread [3] but it does not work for me. The Pogoplug LED on the front is off and i cannot access it without working arch on a usb drive. What should i do now?

There are 2 different approaches:

1. Make Arch u-boot works for booting Debian rootfs using Env.txt.
2. Install my released u-boot while running Arch. And then shutdown, put in the Debian rootfs and start the box.

Number 1 is non-destructive and just remove the uEnv.txt will make it boot back to Arch. That's what you should do in case you change your mind about running Debian later.

But if you are absolutely sure about switching to Debian, then use number 2 to save time. And I will be able to support you if you have problem in the future.

=========

Assuming you choose approach number 1. There are different Arch u-boot versions in the last few years, so while in Arch, get these envs settings and post here:

fw_printenv


also post the content of uEnv.txt that you have created for booting Debian.

cat uEnv.txt
