1  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: Mainline kernel 3.8.3 for Mirabox on: March 21, 2013, 02:49:17 PM
Now the source code is available at http://www.plugcomputer.org/downloads/mirabox-2/

2  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Mainline kernel 3.8.3 for Mirabox on: March 18, 2013, 06:45:41 AM
I am installing the Kernel 3.8.3 to the new GlobalScale Mirabox appliance. At this time I am using NFS root file system. The ethernet cards are fine but it seems that there are no support for the micro SD port neither for USB 3.0. The original kernel that come in the flash is 2.6 and everything works. I have some questions:

1. Where I can find the source code of firmware??? Until now I found only binary.
2. Should I be doing something wrong or the mainline kernel really doesn't have support for those peripherals???

3  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Trying to CONFIG_AUTOBOOT_KEYED on: March 03, 2011, 06:00:54 PM
I am trying to configure autoboot with delay strings to use as password to get access to uboot prompt. To do that I have to define two functions at arch/arm/cpu/arm926ejs/kirkwoord/time.c and they are:

ulong get_tbclk(void)
        return CONFIG_SYS_TCLK;

unsigned long long get_ticks(void)
        return readl(CNTMR_VAL_REG(UBOOT_CNTR));

These functions are use by the function "abortboot(int bootdelay)" at common/main.c to calculate the time to wait for the password (delay string) and they are specific for each CPU architecture.

My new uboot is working but the delay waiting for password is always 20 seconds, no matter what value I have in the environment variable bootdelay. It means that my functions are working but they are not reporting the correct time ticks. I guess that get_tbclk is correct but not get_ticks().

Anybody has any idea to help me to fix these functions ???
