121  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Re: New user attempting to access uboot via serial on: June 15, 2009, 06:46:59 AM
It halts at this point.
The usb stick is plugged in, so im not sure how i can investigate it more?

did you try to use the settings/instructions from the Webpage from Martin Michlmayr?
His boot-arg's seems to be the same you used before, but you could check if the USB-Stick is created properly.

My best thing was to update the internal-flash ubuntu to a working one (getting updates, installing wget via apt-get)
and create the partitions with the sheevaplug (incl. unpacking the tar).

You could try to completly reset the enviroment with the detaila on this page

Or try another USB-Stick...some are not so "good"....which type do you got...?

  I can plug all the devices in after it has booted and everything works fine.  So it seems to be uboot that has the limitations.

I flashed u-boot to support SD/MMC and now I boot of the SC-Card.
While booting from SD(HC) there is no problem anymore that the soundcard/hub is conntected at boot-time
BUT a 20GB 2.5" USB-Disk couldnt be read by fdisk while a USB-Falsh Stick could be read without problems
from fdisk.

Any ideas on the radio listing?

I did try the following under debian lenny  on my sheevaplug:

mpg123 with the following command to use the pipe-input from wget into mpg123
wget -O - http://gffstream.ic.llnwd.net/stream/gffstream_mp3_w67a | mpg123

but mpg123 has some flaky sound
(doesnt seem to resampe to 48khz, which is needed by my iMic USB-Card)

but Internet-Radio works fine for me with the mplayer without the flaky sound
because mplayer does resampling (see above) to 48khz

I think he mean that he want to put the content of the internal flash (512MB) to a .bin file
(this could hold a actual  and reconfigured ubuntu).
This .bin / flash-File should be restored to another (shevva)plug.

I also woud love so have such a application...

I'm using a Transcend 8GB SD card.  Works fine as the root file system.

I also use a 8GB Transcend SDHC Class6 as root-system without any problems.

Additionally therefore I did use a 4GB OCZ Rally USB-Stick as root-system with no problems.

I also configured my system (sheevaplug) for playing MP3 from USB/SD and InterNet-Radio, but without
the cool interface you used (MPC/MPD).

I updated my sheevaplug for SD/MMC-Boot, installed debian on SDHC-Card, plugged my iMic-Soundcard in the USB-port,
installed mplayer (which could be used as player via console, but did install much gtk/x11-packets)

mplayer did generate clear sound while playing MP3 from SD or from radio-stream.

For testing I installed also mpg123/321 and mp3blaster, but mpg123/321 did generate flaky sound and
mp3blaster couldnt find a sound-device.

btw: this way I learned that mpg123 could play internet radio via pipe input :-) but the sound quality
with mplayer is much better

Hi Andreas,

on the webpage of Martin is a description how to change the boot-args for MMC/SD via the serial console in Marvell U-Boot enviroment
BUT in order to use it you have to update your U-Boot "BIOS" to a version which has Boot-Support for MMC/SD

You will need to setup a TFTP-Server, put 3 Lines in the Marvell-enviroment and start the update-process with the
"bubt u-boot.bin"

The new u-boot.bin could be found in the Thread which has Martin marked on his Page prepared a version of u-boot

The u-boot.bin file is here in this forum.

Because I updated my U-Boot yesterday I didnt test the boot from MMC/SD since yesterday. 
But I only have to change the boot-args, because I already prepared a 8GB TransCend SDHC with the debian-tarball.

If you wouldnt stress your english-skills you are welcome to ask at www.sheevaplug.de in german language :-)
or we will help you to translate your problem for creating a thread for this forum here.


Now I have changed by boot-args to boot from SD and voila it works :-))
Here is the Output from the serial console booting my 8GB TransCend SDHC:

128  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Problem: Booting with several USB-Devices connected to SheevaPlug on: June 10, 2009, 01:26:04 PM
Hi all,

some Users at www.sheevaplug.de, including me, couldnt boot from USB when more
USB-Devices than the USB-Mass-Storage-device are on the USB-Bus.

This looks like this on the serial Console:

Boot with 4-Port-HUB and USB-Stick and my iMic-SoundCard at the SheevaPlug-USB-Port
USB 0: host mode
PEX 0: interface detected no Link.
Net: egiga0 [PRIME], egiga1

Boot with 4-Port-HUB and USB-Stick BUT WITHOUT my iMic-SoundCard at the SheevaPlug-USB-Port
USB 0: host mode
PEX 0: interface detected no Link.
Net: egiga0 [PRIME], egiga1
Hit any key to stop autoboot: 0
(Re)start USB...
USB: scanning bus for devices... 3 USB Device(s) found
scanning bus for storage devices... 1 Storage Device(s) found
=*Booting debian*=

With an additional USB-Device (on the plug/hub)
the recognition seems to hang/ get stuck  while searching for an USB-Mass-Storage-device.

It also get stuck, at the same log-line, after applying the new U-Boot.bin (from the user kwonsk)
which includes the Boot-Support for MMC/SD-Card.

Did anyone got an idea about that?
