1  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Building u-boot for OpenRD-Ultimate on: February 28, 2012, 04:01:02 AM
Hi guys,

I know it isn't really a forum for openrd ( openrd.org seems pretty dead ). But i am trying to build a new u-boot for my openrd-ulti. I Kinda
ran into some small problems and hope you guys can help me out ( tried for multiple days now ).

First off, specs i use to compule:
  ubuntu maverick ( 10.10 )
  arm-linux-gnueabi compilers
  CROSS_COMILER is set to arm-linux-gnueabi-

If needed i can try to upload the vm somewhere

Things i need/problems:

1) I would like MMC/SD support
   for this i added the CONFIG_CMD_MMC stuff to the openrd-ultimate config. ( is this all i need to do ? )

2) Network
   I dl some premade bin but they all lack network support in u-boot. Even the precompiled thats on the document cd

3) Compile
  All the u-boot's i compiled don't work! There about 100k short in size ia 367k insted of 471k. Do i miss some libery's or compiler options?!

Any help/tips is greatly appreciated,

I've copied the original FS from flash to a ADATA's Asus Eee Edition 16 GB SDHC Card. I'm getting IO-errors after 2 days. Then I copied again und got IO-errors after 1 day. So I copied the flash again but this time to a 2 GB SanDisc SD card and it finally works! Now I use a 16GB Kingston USB flash drive for storage.

The 16GB ADATA card works perfectly on my digital camera...

Its pretty wel explained in the link provided in the post above me.  The protection for increased lifetime for SD cards works only on FAT partitions. So when putting a ext2 filesystem on them the error correction of SD dusnt work anymore hench faster problems while in your camera its probaly reflashed to fat. and so the error correction works again.

Most modems have a option to stay connected to a network. Maybe its not enabled for yours. or maybe the signal to connect isnt strong enough?

As said previous the plugs can handle 500mA witch is usb standards. If you truly think its a power issue try a powered usb hub. then you draw power of this instead of the plug
