/boot/uEnv.txt ignored
March 11, 2019 09:06PM
I have a FAT partition on a USB stick which is not being read using normal envs. Can't understand why...

envs:-

uenv_addr=0x810000
uenv_import=echo importing envs ...; env import -t $uenv_addr $filesize
uenv_init_devices=setenv init_usb "usb start";  setenv init_ide "ide reset";  setenv init_mmc "mmc rescan"; for devtype in $devices; do run init_$devtype; done;
uenv_load=run uenv_init_devices; setenv uenv_loaded 0; for devtype in $devices;  do for disknum in 0; do run uenv_read_disk; done; done;
uenv_read=echo loading envs from $devtype $disknum ...; if load $devtype $disknum:1 $uenv_addr /boot/uEnv.txt; then setenv uenv_loaded 1; fi
uenv_read_disk=if test $devtype -eq mmc; then if $devtype part; then run uenv_read;  fi; else if $devtype part $disknum; then run uenv_read; fi;  fi
usb_ready_retry=15

If i stop autoboot and enter:-
setenv load_bsdenv 'usb start; load usb 0:1 0x810000 /boot/uEnv.txt; env import -t 0x810000 $filesize'
setenv boot_bsd 'run load_bsdenv; boot'

and then run:-
run boot_bsd

I get:-

What should I change so that /boot/uEnv.txt on this USB stick is read automatically?

If i stop autoboot and enter:-
setenv load_bsdenv 'usb start; load usb 0:1 0x810000 /boot/uEnv.txt; env import -t 0x810000 $filesize'
setenv boot_bsd 'run load_bsdenv; boot'


You don't do this explicitly. It is in the bootcmd. So to test the uEnv.txt, you would do

run bootcmd_uenv

You would put all envs necessary for booting BSD inside uEnv.txt. And

boot

bodhi,

Maybe I didn't explain properly, my current /boot/uEnv.txt on a FAT partition on my USB stick contains:-

ootfile=ubldr.bin
loadaddr=0x02000000
fdt_file=db88f6281.dtb
uenvcmd=echo Booting FreeBSD from SD Card: ; mmcinfo && fatload mmc 0 ${loadaddr} ${bootfile} && bootelf

but it looks like uBoot does not seem to take any input from this file.

Can you suggest a single line that I can put in to show the environment has effected a change as a result of reading this file as I must have missed something... Also does it matter that the file is on a FAT partition which is case insensitive, so uEnv.txt might not be found?

As I said, you'd want to test your uEnv.tx by executing this command in serial console

run bootcmd_uenv

This command will find the /boot/uEnv.txt in the 1st partition of any disk drive partition. After executing it, you would then check the envs
printenv

Post the log here if you can't figure out what's happened in the above commands.

The problem may be due to my envs... If I install uboot.2016.05-tld-1.environment.bodhi.tar should I expect to boot OpenWrt?

ISTR that I needed to add/change something in the process of getting it working....

As I asked above, list the content of your current uEnv.txt.

cat uEnv.txt

And then powerup, interrupt serial console and

run bootcmd_uenv
printenv

And post the entire log of the above session here.

balanga,

I had a typo up there!

Power up, interrupt serial console. And run the bootcmd_uenv the first thing, there is no need to run anything else before that.
run bootcmd_uenv
printenv

And don't run anything else either.

One day I will have to sit down and study what all these envs do. At the moment it seems like black magic :)

But I see from the above that

bootfile=ubldr

has been set so that the envs have been amended.
Re: /boot/uEnv.txt ignored

Yes. They were read in OK.

fatdev=usb 0:1
loaderdev=usb 0:1
bootfile=ubldr
fdtfile=db88f6281.dtb
kernel_addr_r=0x01000000
loadaddr=0x02000000
pxefile_addr_r=0x00100000
ramdisk_addr_r=0x02100000
scriptaddr=0x00000000
bootcmd=usb start;fdt addr 0x100;fatload ${fatdev} ${loadaddr} ${bootfile} && bootelf ${loadaddr}

bootfile=ubldr
....
bootcmd=usb start;fdt addr 0x100;fatload ${fatdev} ${loadaddr} ${bootfile} && bootelf ${loadaddr}

And so on.

However, that bootcmd in uEnv.txt will be ignored when you boot automatically. So you need something like this:

bootcmd_bsd=usb start;fdt addr 0x100;fatload ${fatdev} ${loadaddr} ${bootfile} && bootelf ${loadaddr}

And set this permanently (similar to when you set up LEDE)

setenv bootcmd 'run bootcmd_uenv; run scan_disk; run bootcmd_bsd; run set_bootargs; run bootcmd_exec; run bootcmd_lede'

So BSD, Debian, and LEDE will be tried in that order. Whichever command is successful (i.e. completed) first, will be the running system.

bodhi,

Many thanks for the help. I can now boot Debian, Arch Linux and OpenWrt on my GoFlex Home using the same uBoot.

I'll spend a bit of time trying to get FreeBSD booting as well.

Your help in flattening the learning curve of getting familiar with the system is much appreciated.

Cool!

At one point, you should post your u-boot envs setup that boot these 3 distros here. Probably in a new thread, so that it will help others who are looking for clues how to set it up such an environment.

I hope to do that at some point. I've made a lot of mistakes over the last 18 months since I started with this and maybe some of my posts have helped people avoid them but, I still have much to learn. I'd like to hone these u-boot envs, since I don't understand a number and would rather remove them if not required.

Right. For example, these envs are transient. They are created on the fly during booting. But when you list them after executing some commands, they appear on the list.

fileaddr=810000
filesize=11f
init_ide=ide reset
init_mmc=mmc rescan
init_usb=usb start

So to get a real set of permananent envs, it should be listed in Linux with fw_printenv. And then you woud compare them with my env text file in the u-boot release tarball (uboot.2016.05-tld-1.environment) to see what are the differences. And envs that you did not purposely saved (i.e for LEDE, Arch) are not needed to be saved.

bodhi,

I'm really struggling to get uboot to take any notice of my /boot/uEnv.txt.

If I enter the following at the following, (which is also the contents of my /boot/uEnv.txt) at the stop autoboot prompt:-

setenv bootfile ubldr
setenv kernel_addr_r 0x01000000
setenv loadaddr 0x02000000
setenv bootcmd 'usb start; fatload usb 0:1 ${loadaddr} ${bootfile} && bootelf ${loadaddr}'

FreeBSD actually starts booting:-

What should I do to make uBoot set the above variables from the file?

Is there any way to include 'printenv' in uEnv.txt so that envars are displayed during the boot process?

balanga,

I have answered this question before:

https://forum.doozan.com/read.php?3,80444,80539#msg-80539

Basically, you can not redefine bootcmd and bootcmd_uenv using uEnv.txt. So define a bootcmd_bsd that piggy back to the default bootcmd like I suggested above.

Actually you could, but I purposely exclude them in the current default envs (to ensure that users mistakes in setting envs wont lock them out of the box).

I'm trying to boot from a 350GB HD in the SATA slot on a GoFlex Home unit and I can get uboot to read /boot/uEnv.txt.

Do I need to make any changes to my envars?

I realise that bootcmd_bsd includes usb start which would be in error, but uBoot does not even seem to find bootcmd_bsd, so to me it looks like uEnv.txt has not been found/read.

Change uEnv.xt to have this content:
bootfile=ubldr
kernel_addr_r=0x01000000
loadaddr=0x02000000
bootcmd_bsd=ext2load ide 0:1 ${loadaddr} ${bootfile} && bootelf ${loadaddr}

Power up interrupt serial console and

setenv devices ide
setenv bootdev ide
boot

Make sure the /boot/uEnv.txt file is on partition 1 of the HDD.

IOW, on partition 1, there must be a /boot folder and the uEnv.txt is in that folder.

balanga,

I could not read the log, please repost the log without all the control characters.

And make sure the content of the uEnv.tx is exactly (no more no less):

bootfile=ubldr
kernel_addr_r=0x01000000
loadaddr=0x02000000
bootcmd_bsd=ext2load ide 0:1 ${loadaddr} ${bootfile} && bootelf ${loadaddr}

bodhi,

I don't think /boot/uEnv.txt is being read when booting from hard disk, irrespective of the contents. Here's is an edited boot log when booting up Debian from a USB stick, showing the contents of the hard disk:-

balanga,

I know some improvement is needed in SATA part of the default envs.

That’s what I tried to find out in your particular system configuration.

But you have a really bad habit of not doing what I asked you to do :) I can’t help you if you dont provide the info I ask for.

I did exactly as what you suggested but the outcome was the same so didn't see any sense in posting the same log as before and wanted to see if I could get uBoot to read uEnv.txt which I did by running the various functions in logical order separately, but I will post the output from the changes you suggested, although I don't know what you will glean from it.

It continues trying to boot Linux and I can post that if you want.

My previous posting was to show that I could get FreeBSD's loader loaded just setting

setenv devices ide

and running the different functions in logical order, thereby bypassing some of the conditions which determine if a function should run or not.

I'll run some test in one of my Kirkwood boxes to see what I can tell.
