61  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Re: Booting from SD card on: April 16, 2009, 11:11:17 AM
Nope, the U-boot available for the plug doesn't support booting from SD. The upstream version does, but it remains to see if the Sheevaplug will support it as well Smiley

Phil,
That's exactly what I'm trying to do.  I haven't yet tried to build and install the ftdi_sio module (had assumed that the kenrnel would already support this device), but I suppose I'll give that a go next.  Thanks for the help. 

What are you exactly trying to do? Because Phil said the two options.
63  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: anyone compile a custom kernel yet? on: April 15, 2009, 12:03:00 PM
Thanks a lot for the fast response on this! However, the error stays the same. Is there an additional chip needed in the kernel-config?

On a sidenote (even though it might be obvious): Having the enviroment-variables set as described in the Troubleshooting-Chapter results in the original kernel not booting anymore.

Just make sure you used the kirkwood_defconfig. Also check this:

Code:
# grep CONFIG_MACH .config
CONFIG_MACH_DB88F6281_BP=y
CONFIG_MACH_RD88F6192_NAS=y
CONFIG_MACH_RD88F6281=y
CONFIG_MACH_SHEEVAPLUG=y
CONFIG_MACH_TS219=y

Compiled my Kernel yesterday (almost) without hassles. It took the approximated 45 Minutes on the Plug itself, which is fine for my purposes. But somehow I must have missed something.

I set everything up as stated in the Wiki (getting kernel using snapshot) and compiled it using the steps provided by moshiach in this thread (Thanks for that!). However, after flashing the Image and booting it, I get this:
Code:
Error: unrecognized/unsupported machine ID (r1 = 0x0000020f).

Available machine support:

ID (hex) NAME
00000690 Marvell DB-88F6281-BP Development Board
00000691 Marvell RD-88F6192-NAS Development Board
00000682 Marvell RD-88F6281 Reference Board
00000831 Marvell SheevaPlug Reference Board
0000085b QNAP TS-119/TS-219

Please check your kernel config and/or bootloader.

Did I miss something? Maybe a kernel-option that is not being set by using make defconfig? Even though I find it odd that a SheevaPlug is listed as supported...

I've updated the wiki regarding that: http://plugcomputer.org/plugwiki/index.php/Compiling_Linux_Kernel_for_the_Plug_Computer#Troubleshooting

Where are you building this stuff?
66  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Re: How does one put a new u-Boot on the plug? on: April 15, 2009, 12:26:45 AM
Latest U-boot(the one you can download upstream) doesn't support the plug, for now.
67  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Re: USB Recovery Image on: April 15, 2009, 12:21:01 AM
Yeah that's what I would like to know too since i just bricked my sheeva...

File is: u-boot/PPCBoot image

Maybe one needs to flash image into SD-card... I'll check into that later.



Errr...i doubt you need to flash it to SD-card. The U-boot in the plug doesn't support SD. Besides, its called "USB recovery image", definitely not SD Smiley
68  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: Cannot boot from NAND after reflash? on: April 15, 2009, 12:15:51 AM
The bad blocks thing is normal. I was told it was due to U-boot and the kernel or something. But it doesn't matter, you really don't want to touch the U-boot partition Smiley
