Question about 2017.07 U-Boot Kirkwood for Dockstar
December 18, 2017 01:04PM
I have a dockstar and had an older version of your uboot - I assume from 2011.
I installed this version.
All steps worked including the writing of the environment except setting ethaddr
root@nas:~/tmp# fw_setenv ethaddr '00:10:75:1A:DD:17'
Can't overwrite "ethaddr"
What can I do?
Is it possible to set it with the /boot/uEnv.txt?

Don't worry about ethaddr if you cannot set it. Later, after you boot back to Debian, you can set it there.

The new u-boot set a default ethaddr (a local MAC). So it will be OK for booting temporarily until you set it to the real one.

reboot worked, but i get same error when setting ethaddr after booting into debian.
I also tried with /boot/uEnv.txt. No effect.
Then with update to newest kernel:
root@nas:~# uname -a
Linux nas 4.14.1-kirkwood-tld-1 #1 PREEMPT Wed Nov 22 23:38:14 PST 2017 armv5tel GNU/Linux
root@nas:~# cat /boot/uEnv.txt 
ethaddr=00:10:75:1A:DD:17
dtb_file=
ipaddr=192.168.178.107
serverip=192.168.178.4
Still the same problem:
root@nas:~# fw_setenv ethaddr 00:10:75:1A:DD:17
Can't overwrite "ethaddr"
Any tipps/ideas how to solve the problem?

And why is netcat stopping to log after booting the kernel? Last message is: 'Starting kernel ...'

netconsole will only output that much. Later you need to do more setup in Debian to see kernel messages.

For ethaddr problem, please post output of these commands here (in code tags, don't attach files).

dmesg
cat /proc/mtd
fw_printenv
ls -l /boot/dts/kirkwood-dockstar*

edinger,

You're running the latest kernel 4.14.1, but you did not install the latest DTB in step 2 during kernel installation:

Quote

2. Extract the kernel and the DTB files in the archive:

cd /boot
tar -xjf linux-4.14.1-kirkwood-tld-1-bodhi.tar.bz2
tar -xf  linux-dtb-4.14.1-kirkwood-tld-1.tar

Re: Question about 2017.07 U-Boot Kirkwood for Dockstar

I unpacked the dts files, build uImage with the following commands (as described in Step 4) again and rebooted.
Same problem.
Should I build it without dts file? It was unclear how, because when I skip step 4 I have no uImage file.
Or do I simply have to skip the cat dts/... command?
cp -a ~/zImage-4.14.1-kirkwood-tld-1 zImage.fdt
cat dts/kirkwood-dockstar.dtb  >> zImage.fdt
mkimage -A arm -O linux -T kernel -C none -a 0x00008000 -e 0x00008000 -n vmlinuz-4.14.1-kirkwood-tld-1 -d zImage.fdt  uImage

This indicated that you have not installed the kernel 4.14.1 correctly. If you did, the uImage file should have been created. Redo the installation.

If not sure. Post the command you about to execute.

Here is the installation instruction

Quote

Installation:

Please use the same installation instruction in kernel 4.13.5-kirkwood-tld-1 (Updated 10 Oct 2017) below. Simply replace 4.13.5-kirkwood-tld-1 with 4.14.1-kirkwood-tld-1 in the instruction.

Quote

Installation:


1. Backup your current uImage and uInitrd. In the /boot directory, these are files for your current kernel (xx.xx.xx is the version number):
uInitrd
uImage
initrd.img-xx.xx.xx-kirkwood-xxx
System.map-xx.xx.xx-kirkwood-xxx
vmlinuz-xx.xx.xx-kirkwood-xxx
config-xx.xx.xx-kirkwood-xxx
dts/

2. Extract the kernel and the DTB files in the archive:

cd /boot
tar -xjf linux-4.8.0-kirkwood-tld-1-bodhi.tar.bz2
tar -xf linux-dtb-4.8.0-kirkwood-tld-1.tar

3. And install it with dpkg. Remove flash-kernel first to avoid potential problem (It is much better to generate uImage and uInitrd manually anyway):

cd /boot
apt-get remove flash-kernel
dpkg -i linux-image-4.8.0-kirkwood-tld-1_1.0_armel.deb

4. Create uImage and uInitrd and setup for booting.

I'm using the GoFlex Net booting with USB drive as an example here. Please replace its name (kirkwood-goflexnet.dtb) with the box you are installing on (for example, kirkwood-pogo_e02.dtb). Please look inside /boot/dts/ for the correct DTB file name for your box.

Below are the 2 different alternatives in booting (method 4b is required for booting with older U-Boot that does not support FDT).

- Choose option 4a if you are going to use the current rootfs for many different Kirkwood boxes, as is. It should boot most of the Kirkwood boxes. And with the latest U-Boot for Kirkwood that suports FDT. This is the preferred method.

- Choose option 4b if you only use the current rootfs for the box you're installing on, and don't want to modify u-boot envs. This method is required for booting with older U-Boot that does not support FDT. Note that if you are installing from stock OS, u-boot envs must be modified to boot with USB or HDD (please post questions, since each box has a different flavor in setting up the envs).

4a. Boot with DTB file (standard way to boot FDT kernel). Recommended.


- Generate the uImage and uInitrd.
cd /boot
mkimage -A arm -O linux -T kernel -C none -a 0x00008000 -e 0x00008000 -n Linux-4.8.0-kirkwood-tld-1 -d vmlinuz-4.8.0-kirkwood-tld-1 uImage
mkimage -A arm -O linux -T ramdisk -C gzip -a 0x00000000 -e 0x00000000 -n initramfs-4.8.0-kirkwood-tld-1 -d initrd.img-4.8.0-kirkwood-tld-1 uInitrd

- Set U-Boot envs for booting. The u-boot envs below are for 1st time upgrading, you don't need to do this step if you've installed the latest U-Boot for Kirkwood. Just make sure the DTB file is the correct one for your box, replace kirkwood-goflexnet.dtb below with the correct DTB name for your box.

fw_setenv load_dtb 'ext2load usb 0:1 0x1c00000 /boot/dts/kirkwood-goflexnet.dtb'
fw_setenv load_initrd 'ext2load usb 0:1 0x1100000 /boot/uInitrd'
fw_setenv load_uimage 'ext2load usb 0:1 0x800000 /boot/uImage'
fw_setenv usb_boot 'run load_dtb; run load_uimage; if run load_initrd; then bootm 0x800000 0x1100000 0x1c00000; else bootm 0x800000 - 0x1c00000; fi'

4b. Boot with DTB file embedded in the kernel image (no U-Boot envs changes are needed if your system already booting on USB or HDD)

Again, please replace kirkwood-goflexnet.dtb below with the correct DTB name for your box.

Generate the uImage and uInitrd:
cd /boot
mv uImage uImage.orig
cp -a zImage-4.8.0-kirkwood-tld-1 zImage.fdt
cat dts/kirkwood-goflexnet.dtb >> zImage.fdt
mkimage -A arm -O linux -T kernel -C none -a 0x00008000 -e 0x00008000 -n Linux-4.8.0-kirkwood-tld-1 -d zImage.fdt uImage
mkimage -A arm -O linux -T ramdisk -C gzip -a 0x00000000 -e 0x00000000 -n initramfs-4.8.0-kirkwood-tld-1 -d initrd.img-4.8.0-kirkwood-tld-1 uInitrd

5. The new uImage and uInitrd files should be created in /boot directory now. You're ready to reboot the system:
sync
sync
sync
shutdown -r now

Ok, I will proceed with this and keep you informed. Here the description differs. There is no 4a or 4b, just4 and I skipped it.
4. Create uImage with embedded DTB for booting with older u-boots (2012 or earlier). Skip this step if you have installed the latest U-Boot for Kirkwood (or are installing this u-boot at the same time).

Edit: I created uInitrd and uImage by 4a method without changing env parameters. I can boot, but still same problem.

You have used the wrong section for intstruction. The above is for the rootfs. The kernel installation is to be done after you have the rootfs running, and then upgrade the kernel on top of that:

Updated 25 Nov 2017:

Kernel linux-4.14.1-kirkwood-tld-1 package has been uploaded.

New/update in this version:

- Modified NSA3xx boxes DTS files to set system LED to green right after the kernel has booted.

No. As I said, your DTB is too old:

root@nas:~# ls -l /boot/dts/kirkwood-dockstar*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 10180 Feb  6  2015 /boot/dts/kirkwood-dockstar.dtb

It means that you did not install the DTBs in this step:

2. Extract the kernel and the DTB files in the archive:

Hi bodhi,

sorry, that I missed this step.
I worked through your description and did step by step again: unpacking, installing, unpacking dts, building uImage, uInitrd. Now it uses the currents dts, but still the error occurs.

Re: Question about 2017.07 U-Boot Kirkwood for Dockstar

Similar things happened to me before.
My solution: (use either one)

Use another usb boot disk with old kernel /file system to boot the system, then use fw_setenv

Or download bodhi tool pack and use the command in the package instead.

After it was solved, I never asked why. :p

OK. Let's see your bootlog again. If you have serial console then post the entire bootlog here. And
cat /proc/mtd
fw_printenv


If no serial console connected, post:

dmesg
cat /proc/mtd
fw_printenv

Re: Question about 2017.07 U-Boot Kirkwood for Dockstar
December 25, 2017 04:33AM
I have a second dockstar and updated uboot from 2011.12 to 2017.07-tld-1. Same error when I try fw_setenv ethaddr.

When I tried to set ethaddr directly in uboot (netcat) I got a strange output
DockStar> setenv ethaddr 00:10:75:1A:D9:23
75s:et1eAnv: eDt9ha:dd23
r 00:10:DockStar>

After poweroff/on i tried it again and it stuck after the last command - no feedback from uboot. Booting afterwards was fine.
DockStar>  setenv ethaddr 00:10:75:1A:DD:17
 setenv ethaddr 00:10:75:1A:DD:17

edinger,

> (netcat) I got a strange output

Think about it. netcosnole relies on the MAC address to establish network connection. So you should not able change it while connecting with netconsole.

Changing the ethaddr in Debian should be OK. After you reboot, u-boot will read the ethaddr env and then establish network connection.

If you cannot change ethaddr in Debian, that's a whole different story.

The new DTB enable read/write access to mtd0, so changing ethaddr in Debian is allowed. If that is not enabled, then perhaps you are not booting with the new DTB.

Ok. Then let's focus on changing ethaddr from within debian.
I think this is the latest dtb:
root@nas:~# ll /boot/dts/*dock*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 10404 Nov 24 06:46 /boot/dts/kirkwood-dockstar.dtb
root@nas:~#
and as console output says it will be used:
loading DTB /boot/dts/kirkwood-dockstar.dtb ...
And I cannot change it:
root@nas:~# fw_setenv ethaddr 00:10:75:1A:DD:17
Can't overwrite "ethaddr"
Re: Question about 2017.07 U-Boot Kirkwood for Dockstar
December 25, 2017 06:32AM
Connect serial console and let it boot.

Log into Debian and

cat /proc/mtd
fw_printenv

Post the entire serial console log (from u-boot banner up until this point).

Log into Debian and get output of:

dmesg
cat /proc/mtd
fw_printenv

Please post these output here inside code tags.

If I cannot see the solution after examining the above output, then there must be something in your own system that has prevented it. Nobody else has this problem with the new DTB.

Since I don't have access to my Dockstar, I will need a different user to confirm whether they can set their ethaddr to a different value of their own choosing.

Did you try the Bodhi tool pack method? It's Christmas and I had some time to upgrade my PogoPro's uboot to the latest version. On ProBox #1, I didn't have this problem when I used fw_setenv ethaddr. On ProBox #2, I met similar problem. I solved it by using Bodhi's toolpack method.

BTW, box1 and box2, the system is the same.

... flash new uboot, environment image, set nc, etc...
