1  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Unable to boot the kernel from NAND on: August 12, 2009, 04:30:05 PM
Hi,

I tried recovering my plug with Alpha-6 installer but its still not working, I think its unable to read from my USB drive however I've checked my ISB is FAT32 formated and works fine, I'm getting the following error:

Code:

Hi,

Thanks for the reply but just wanted to know that when I wrote kernel on my NAND with writenand command it was successfully written in that area and didn't give any error also my kernel uImage file was less than 2097152. But still don't know why when it tries to read the kernel it give read error
Code:
NAND read: device 0 offset 0x100000, size 0x200000
 2097152 bytes read: ERROR

I'm very new with Plug Computing could you please point me to a good tutorial from where I can get more information?

Thanks once again.

Cheers,
Ilnli

Hi,

I've done all the instructions according to the wiki page to replace the company defaults kernel with the one I compiled but when ever plug boots it give following error:

Code:
NAND read: device 0 offset 0x100000, size 0x200000
 2097152 bytes read: ERROR
## Booting image at 00800000 ...
   Image Name:   Linux-2.6.22.18
   Created:      2009-04-04   1:49:44 UTC
   Image Type:   ARM Linux Kernel Image (uncompressed)
   Data Size:    2070252 Bytes =  2 MB
   Load Address: 00008000
   Entry Point:  00008000
   Verifying Checksum ... Bad Data CRC

I've even tried re-imaging it back with uImage.sheeva.040309 but still it says the same thing my boot_args are is:
Code:
setenv bootargs 'console=ttyS0,115200 mtdparts=cfi_flash:0x200000@0x100000(uImage)ro,0x87c0000@0x300000(rootfs)rw root=/dev/mtdblock2'
saveenv
setenv bootcmd 'nand read 0x800000 0x100000 0x200000; bootm 0x800000'
saveenv

Please helps I've been working on this for weeks now and could find out how to fix it and make my plug usable again.

Thanks
Ilnli
