after messing around with fw_setenv, uboot on my dockstar hangs in a loop. It looks over the netconsole like this:


U-Boot 2010.09 (Oct 23 2010 - 11:49:22)
Marvell-Dockstar/Pogoplug by Jeff Doozan
ERROR: There is a global environment variable with the same name.
Unknown command 'start' - try 'help'
Using egiga0 device
host is alive

How can i get uboot to work again?
Thank you!

You've redirected the output to a netconsole If you want to access it via serial, just disconnect your dockstar from the network and reboot. It won't find the server at and should continue sending messages to the console.

Thank you!
Luckily I had an TTL-232R-3V3 cable here. Connected it to the dockstar and was able to repair everything!
