So i have had a try with the internal microSD (2GB /dev/sda). It is working - Debian is booting now from /dev/sda... But i prefer to use the SD Card (16GB /dev/sdb). Does anybody know how to accomplish that?

Thanks in advance

cbxbiker, birdman, many thanks for the cross-compile info.

At the moment I'm going to go with trying to build a toolchain.

Cbxbiker - I have found a couple of problems with running the script:
1) http://www.xilka.com/xilka/source/patches/Gcc-4.8.2-arm-thumb2-CASE_VECTOR_SHORTEN_MODE.patch does not exist in http://www.xilka.com/xilka/source/patches
2) I get "ERROR 502: Bat Gateway." when I try to download http://www.xilka.com/xilka/source/patches/BinUtils-2.23.2-Add-supports-of-the-Marvell-PJ4-core.patch

Since the above patches don't look armv5te related, I have continued without them.

I found the following patch is also needed, to allow binutils to compile:
https://sourceware.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/src/bfd/doc/bfd.texinfo.diff?r1=1.18&r2=1.19&cvsroot=src

Finally, in section 034/059, there is a copy from ~/source/src/CrossArm/root/$Target/{lib,usr/lib,usr/include}/* into the $respin directory tree. I'm not clear what is copied, nor how the files there are constructed. For the time being, I have copied the whole of /lib, /usr/lib, /usr/include from the target system to ~/source/src/CrossArm/root/$Target/{lib,usr/lib,usr/include}, but that seems overkill, and may not be the right way to do it.

So, I now have a build toolchain, so I'll start trying to build some kernels, but it would be good to resolve the above points so I know I am building with something equivalent to what you are using.

It's not happy on Debian 7 x64:

I added the missing patch, not a terribly important patch for compiling the kernel.

This page:(whcih is for a different hardware, but still a Kirkwood setup) metions:

To enable the serial console: (This is in addition to the 8250/16550 and serial console support you should generally have enabled for kirkwood.)

Device Drivers --> Character Devices --> Serial Drivers

    Serial port on Open Firmware platform bus (CONFIG_SERIAL_OF_PLATFORM)
but this isn't set on cbxbiker61's config.  Could this be the problem?

Does anybody know how i can tweak the debian installer to install uImage to SDB2 instead of SDA2? Or how i could initiate this from the rescue console?

Thanks for any comments

I checked printenv and debian installation for both the SD card used for installation is listed in SDB. So SDA is obviously wrong. Does anybody know how i can fix this? Or does the debian installation only support the installation to the dreamplug microSD which would be SDA?

Thanks for any hints

Hi,

my dreamplug is a 003-DS2001 and i dared to upgrade my self installed Debian System (http://blog.davideaves.com/archives/2011/03/21/installing_debian_gnulinux_6_0_1_squeeze_on_the_dreamplug/). As the uImage hasn't been upgraded as well the whole system wasn't useable anymore. I started from the beginning in order to have a debian system which generates uImage for itself --> Upgrades will be possible.

1. Upgrading uBoot worked, takes some time, uBoot start up configuration needs to be altered :               http://www.cyrius.com/debian/kirkwood/sheevaplug/uboot-upgrade/ 
2. Installing Debian still ongoing (posted here in the forum:        http://www.cyrius.com/debian/kirkwood/sheevaplug/install/

Question 1: I doubt that! Did you try the images of NewIT already? http://downloadsnewit.co.uk/SD-images/Dreamplug/NewIT-Dreamplug-v0901-v1001-multibootSD-Wheezy/

Question 2: The images of NewIT should work. Can't test myself asi don't want to touch uBoot script again ;-)  Still trying to install Debian Wheezy...

Hope that helps...

Enclosed is a snippet of the /var/log/installer/syslog related to uImage:

The only error seems to be that the system can't find an ext2 filesystem on /dev/sda1...
Does anybody has an idea why?

Thanks in advance for any hint

Hallo,

i followed Cyrius Guide for Debian installation on dreamplug:

http://www.cyrius.com/debian/kirkwood/sheevaplug/install/

I have used an USB-stick to provide installation uImage and uInitrd in order to install debian to an SD card. A /boot ext2 partition has been created but remains empty after finishing installation. I would expect the new generated uImage and uInitrd to be copied there... At least that is implied in the guide.

Is there any log file which i could check for a root cause?

Thanks in advance

kemrit
