1  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: 3.2 new kernel available on: January 16, 2012, 09:16:50 AM
after more than 10 builds it seems the bisect didn't bring much good results. I ended up with this. I never had such a thing before...
The merge base efb8d21b2c6db3497655cc6a033ae8a9883e4063 is bad.
This means the bug has been fixed between efb8d21b2c6db3497655cc6a033ae8a9883e4063 and [8686a0e200419322654a75155e2e6f80346a1297 b96d71571f7745216ef63f13770b5a10b94ddd34 c3b92c8787367a8bb53d57d9789b558f1295cc96 efb8d21b2c6db3497655cc6a033ae8a9883e4063].

yes without the command git would have an extremely big negative point because it's extremely complex for humans to handle it manually with the git system. others can be easily implemented as a command with a 5 lines bash script.
Anyway going back to the topic for me it's difficult to do as it would take 4 hours each build (as i build on the plug and i don't have crosscompilers on my main systems) i wonder if spinifex could do it else i could have a try at it. 3.1.5 didn't build for me at all so i'll have to hope 3.1 builds for me (as in linus tree you've just that one).

git bisect is just a basic binary search it can be done with anything which has a concept of revisions including svn or even something as basic as dropbox... actually even cvs can be used for it with the time statement. all this in log(n) (in the worst case) where n is first known not working revision minus last known woking revision Smiley
So don't wonder how big project can get by without git at all.

i'm running it from ram i didn't even reach that point... anyway i've checked my 3.0 build is bigger than the prebuild posted here (2.8mb vs 2.7mb) my 3.2 build is 3mb

Hi Biker,

When trying to boot using the dream 3.2 uImage, It hangs after the following console output.
I have tried building the kernel myself with the same result.
Any ideas.

I've the same issue on my guruplug server plus. First i tried my own kernel (by just doing a makeold config run from a configuration which worked on 3.0) then the sheevaplug build from the link here, in both cases it stopped at booting the kernel.

except the spam above it's solved it seems the current u-boot git is broken (at least for guruplug) september release works well
7  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: Linux 2.6.36-rc7 - ethernet not working on: October 24, 2010, 01:13:57 AM
it worked well also here thanks Smiley

i've the same problem but on 2.6.36 which is now a stable release on kernel.org. dhclient stalls indefinitely, trying to set an ip and doing a ping makes the interface led blink but nothing else the network is unreacheable.
9  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / updating uboot with self built (guruplug plus) on: October 20, 2010, 12:12:16 PM
I've got a guruplug various mounts ago (already in june) and all works fine but recently i was planning to update the kernel and uboot.
So i started with the uboot and kernel provided on this site (2.6.33 and uboot.guruplug.bin) and both work fine flashed with openocd. (while still loading the kernel from tftp for now)
As i saw it was working well then i've attempted building an uboot from git.

so i've followed the instructions on the wiki except i've used the plug to build it in place a cross compiler
http://www.openplug.org/plugwiki/index.php/Re-building_the_kernel_and_U-Boot
so
# git clone git://git.denx.de/u-boot-marvell.git
# cd u-boot-marvell.git
# git checkout -b testing origin/testing (with and without this)
# make mrproper
# make guruplug_config
# make u-boot.kwb

then I tried to flash either the u-boot.kwb and bin with openocd and uboot never started ... ever. reflashing again the previous one brings the unit back to life but still i don't get what i wish. I've also tried flashing it by following the instructions on http://kiserai.net/blog/2010/07/07/yet-another-guruplug-custom-kernel-howto and i've also tried downloading the prebuilt one from http://oinkzwurgl.org/guruplug_uboot and even applying those patches on the git repo and rebuilding all with no success.
I wonder what i'm doing wrong? to note the system running on it is debian stable (the preinstalled one) with backport repositories.

I've also tried running the hello_world.bin as explained on the last site i've listed after loading it from tftp i do go 0x0c100000 (enter) and the system locks up requiring a reset from the reset button.

Thanks for any help.

i wonder who will pay for the professional upgrade kit as it wasn't exactly cheap already...
11  General Category / Application ideas and development Q/A / usb/ip on: June 11, 2010, 02:20:32 AM
has anyone attempted to make usb/ip run on a guruplug? would be nice to access usb devices remotely.
As the module seems to be missing from the basic preinstalled kernel I've tried downloading the sources (btw  i couldn't find the preinstalled 2.6.32 sources with the patches) but when i check under the staging configuration options usb ip is entirely missing, even though it's part of the sources, while i can see it in my x86 computer while configuring the kernel. I'm missing something? it's not compatible?
