1  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Re: Upgranding from 3.4.16 to 3.4.19 by usb on: January 17, 2010, 06:08:34 AM
Thanks! Now it works Smiley
Only few notes:
1. Use openocd 0.2.0 for installer 1.0.
2. Recompile it if you don't use x86 32 bit cpu (see troubleshooting chapter)
3. If you can't run the script, replace <? with <?php at the beginning
4. If you're root, but he think that you're not, simply comment the 2 lines where there's the check, with /*
Code:
*/
5. If it doesn't found the device, you should edit the configuration (see new devices)
6. When the installation starts, DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING until the system is fully working (ubuntu login screen)

That's all folks :)

I've upgraded uboot by an fat16 usb pen, as this guide says: http://www.cyrius.com/debian/kirkwood/sheevaplug/uboot-upgrade.html
This is the output: http://nopaste.info/49704187d6.html
Everything seemed to be ok, but when I wrote "reset"... It hung up... So I turn it off, and on: no messages, no output, nothing Sad

What the problem could be?

It was not releated to a mispelled password, but it's a bug occurred after an upgrade of Ubuntu. I've solved it Smiley

Connected (with minicom) to my sweet sheeva plug.
Edited the boot loader agruments with:
Code:
setenv bootargs console=ttyS0,115200 mtdparts=nand_mtd:0x400000@0x100000(uImage),0x1fb00000@0x500
000(rootfs) rw root=/dev/mtdblock1 init=/bin/bash
And then the usual:
Code:
setenv
Then I've boot it with:
Code:
boot

At the comand prompt I've reset root password:
Code:
pwconv; passwd -d root; passwd

The "reboot" command didn't work, so I restarted it manually. Then, I've write those lines in the bootloader env:
Code:
setenv bootargs console=ttyS0,115200 mtdparts=nand_mtd:0x400000@0x100000(uImage),0x1fb00000@0x500
000(rootfs) rw root=/dev/mtdblock1
setenv
Then I've boot it with:
Code:
boot

And it worked Cheesy

6  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / How to reset root password by boot loader on: August 03, 2009, 01:55:54 PM
Actually I'm using a nettop, and I think that I've set a mispelled root password, because I can't login. So, I thinked to put something "init=/bin/sh" (this is the grub-like syntax), mount the fs, and reset the password. The problem is that I don't know how could I say this to uboot. Otherwise, is there a simple way to put debian in the internal nand drive?

Thanks Wink
