Unfortunately no luck, I used mkimage with '-T kernel', and an image is made, but when I try to run it, it now says:

Marvell>> bootm 0x2000000 0x3000000;
## Booting kernel from Legacy Image at 02000000 ...
   Image Name:   debian
   Created:      2012-06-05   7:13:46 UTC
   Image Type:   ARM Linux Kernel Image (gzip compressed)
   Data Size:    1246756 Bytes =  1.2 MB
   Load Address: 03000000
   Entry Point:  03000000
   Verifying Checksum ... OK
Wrong Ramdisk Image Format
Ramdisk image is corrupt or invalid

Before it wanted a kernel image, but when given a kernel image it now wants a ramdisk image. It's probably simple, but the error codes are confusing me. Any more clues from onlookers would be welcome, cheers.

Thanks for that mentor, that would make sense, given the error message:

Wrong Image Type for bootm command
ERROR: can't get kernel image!

that is received. I'll try again tonight after work and report back. Cheers.

Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone can help me with this, I am trying to run the Debian 'versatile' installer for my d2plug, but it fails to start.
I sourced the files from :

ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/stable/main/installer-armel/current/images/versatile/netboot/initrd.gz
ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/stable/main/installer-armel/current/images/versatile/netboot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-5-versatile

I then use mkimage like so:

mkimage -A arm -O linux -T ramdisk -C gzip -a 0x3000000 -e 0x3000000 -n "debian" -d vmlinuz-2.6.32-5-versatile uimage

The result is :

Image Name:   debian
Created:      Sun Jun  3 09:52:17 2012
Image Type:   ARM Linux RAMDisk Image (gzip compressed)
Data Size:    1246756 Bytes = 1217.54 kB = 1.19 MB
Load Address: 0x03000000
Entry Point:  0x03000000

This is put on the first partition of an sd card (fat) and on startup the following commands:

usb start;
fatls usb 1:1;

fatload usb 1:1 0x2000000 uimage;
fatload usb 1:1 0x3000000 initrd;
usb stop;
bootm 0x2000000 0x3000000;

The message I get is:

Marvell>> bootm 0x2000000 0x3000000;
## Booting kernel from Legacy Image at 02000000 ...
   Image Name:   debian

   Load Address: 03000000

   Verifying Checksum ... OK
Wrong Image Type for bootm command
ERROR: can't get kernel image!

I found these instructions online at another forum, but I don't really have enough knowledge to know why they don't work correctly. Is anybody here able to point out the problem or suggest a good place to start checking? Thanks in advance...

thanks, actually I managed to get it going with a bit of headscratching and some external pages I found. Am I able to link to them here for the future reference of others?

http://www.openplug.org/plugwiki/index.php/New_Plugger_How_To

I've still got a ways to go yet until I have the thing doing what I'd like it too, but progress is good...
5  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / VNC problem(newby) on: December 15, 2009, 02:57:36 PM
I have an Ionics brand sheevaplug. I can connect to it using the jtag/usb connection, and SSH, so I know it's working. The plug is on ethernet through a switch, and to the internet through a router. I can ping to it ok. It can also connect to the internet, as I have successfully used the package system to put Transmission bittorrent client onto the plug. I would like to use VNC to connect, but it (uVNC and TightVNC) says 'cannot connect'.

 Bearing in mind that I am not highly conversant with linux, can anyone point out how to get VNC on my plug, or point me to the info? Thanks in advance.
