Hi.

Well!

I just looked at uboot-nand-custom.txt

That WAS set to orion_mtd

# NAND flash partitions. If using kernel >= 2.6.30 then replace orion_nand with orion_mtd
mtdpartitions mtdparts=orion_mtd:0x400000@0x100000(uImage),0x1fb00000@0x500000(rootfs)

I changed it to orion_nand and did a complete re-install.

This time I got the familiar kernel exception crash.


I'm REALLY confused now, as I just downloaded the file from the same URL I PM'd you and mine says: (I changed the comment to as it seems that the 2.6.30 comment was misleading).  Are you 100% sure you are not using an old copy?

I just check (as I was pretty sure I set it to orion_nand) and it is already orion_nand, however the putty.log shows:

"uboot/uboot-env/fw_setenv console console=ttyS0,115200 mtdparts=nand_mtd:0xc0000@0\(uboot\)ro,0x1ff00000@0x100000\(root\)"

So perhaps it's also needs setting somwhere else, or somethings not using the mtdpartitions variable...

EDIT:  Try changing the entry in uboot-dflt.txt also from orion_mtd to orion_nand

I don't know offhand what this file does as part of the install process...  But it's worth a shot...  I don't otherwise see where it picked up orion_mtd from (unless it's an old uboot environet variable or something).

Either it's a corrupted upload, or I did something silly like compress it as a bzip2 but called it a gzip...

Can you try it with:

tar -xvjf

and

tar -xvzf

It could just be something simple like that.  if not, i'll reupload it later.

It's using the sheevainstaller 1.0 initrd.

I am currently uploaded a tweaked version of the installer than has roosters suggestion implemented, if anyone wants to be a new tester....  Roll Eyes

Hmm, so regardless of what kernel is used, it's orion_nand.   The note the txt file is wrong.

Does this explain why superpat could not get this to work?  Any ideas how to progress this is a fully working, updated debian installer pack?  I'm lost....

Looks like we have found the same problem as being discussed here:

http://plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=717.msg7359#msg7359

Can you try it out with an older uboot to try and eliminate what is going on? (try it with both orion_nand and orion_mtd)
52  General Category / General Discussion / Re: SheevaPlug Installer with updated kernel, uboot, distro ? on: January 12, 2010, 04:38:03 AM
Can you change the line back in uboot-nand-custom.txt to orion_nand?

I changed it because the notes said:

# NAND flash partitions. If using kernel >= 2.6.30 then replace orion_nand with orion_mtd

scratchbox or pbuilder are the way.

Can you elaborate why?

9 Downloads, anyone tried it out?Huh
55  General Category / General Discussion / Sheever Installer 1.01 (Unofficial) on: January 10, 2010, 11:37:21 AM
I have pulled all the relevent stuff together, and built an "unofficial sheeva-with-debian" installer 1.01.

It's based on the Ubuntu Sheevainstaller 1.0 with the following changes:

  • Debian Squeeze (mine)
  • Updated Kernel (cxbiker 2.6.32.3)
  • Updated uboot (3.4.27 - pingtoo patch.01)
  • Statically linked Linux OpenOCD
  • Rootdelay for NAND booting set to 5seconds (to help cure HDD not mounting at boot)
  • Cleaned up some of the the errors and possible confusion in the instructions

The file is available here:
http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=04c9dc1dbf3b7c15ab1eab3e9fa335caff81ba820fb48529

It's currently totally untested, as I only have the one plug, and I don't want to upset my perfectly setup system to test it.  Looking for guinea pigs to try it out!!!
56  General Category / General Discussion / Re: New plug computer 3.0 on: January 09, 2010, 04:58:09 AM
It's based on Aramda300, but I can't find any specs as to what that actually is.   It could be just a higher clocked Feroceon used in the Sheevaplug...

Have done some major wiki updates to the page to bring it bang upto date, and include some handy tips for a troublefree install..

Use the cxbiker special kernel with IO transactions and then use iotop to see where writing is occuring the most.

In theory, you should be able to.   Last time I tried, it failed to boot with a ramdisk size problem, however I believe that has since been fixed
See here:

http://plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=717.msg5416#msg5416

And the possible fix which are in cxbikers newer kernels (untested) here:

http://plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=933.msg6429#msg6429

So yes, I think it should work.   Let us know how you get on!!!

I would use uboot 3.4.27-pingtoo-01, as it fixed a small problem in 3.4.27 that some may come across..
