Hi,

Can you also add the ALSA sound support so we can use USB2audio devices?

Thanks Smiley

Hi cbxbiker61,

Thanks

Thanks alot for the kernel feed.

Can you please have Ubifs enabled by default?

Please refer to the wiki for enabling UBI and UBIFS -

http://www.openplug.org/plugwiki/index.php/Enabling_UBIFS

Thanks.

Hi,

I was tftp booting rc4 correctly but when i playing with u-boot trying to boot off mmc, now, I get a kernel panic on the tftp kernel boot rc4 (also tried it on rc5)

Code:
lib80211: common routines for IEEE802.11 drivers
rtc-mv rtc-mv: setting system clock to 2009-05-13 00:07:17 UTC (1242173237)
mmc0: host does not support reading read-only switch. assuming write-enable.
mmc0: new SD card at address c7d9
mmcblk0: mmc0:c7d9 SD256 243 MiB
 mmcblk0:
IP-Config: Device `DB88FXX81' not found.
Root-NFS: No NFS server available, giving up.
VFS: Unable to mount root fs via NFS, trying floppy.
VFS: Cannot open root device "nfs" or unknown-block(2,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option; here are the available partitions:

1f01            4096 mtdblock1 (driver?)

on uBoot:
Code:

Marvell>> printenv boottftp
boottftp=tftpboot 0x2000000 $(image_name)

Marvell>> printenv image_name
image_name=sheeva-2.6.30-rc5-uImage

Marvell>> printenv bootargs
bootargs=console=ttyS0,115200 mtdparts=nand_mtd:0x100000@0(uboot)ro,0x0@0x100000(uImage),0x1ff00000@0x100000(rootfs)rw root=/dev/nfs rw nfsroot=$(serverip):/tftpboot/rootfs ip=192.168.0.35:192.168.0.20::::DB88FXX81:eth0:none

Any ideas on how to boot nfs rootfs back? When removing the MMC card kernel also complains.

I wonder why it was working and now it fails.. with same stuff.. :-/

That bit would make me wonder if you have your nfs server running and the serverip is set correctly.

You got your bootargs missed up.
Look at the line
Code:
IP-Config: Device `DB88FXX81' not found.

The kernel is trying to bring up interface DB88FXX81, instead of eth0.

I got the same error today, I was lack of some devices under /dev/*, so I copied from regular linux /dev/.

IP-Config: Device `DB88FXX81' not found.

The kernel is trying to bring up interface DB88FXX81, instead of eth0.


That was one issue, i had an extra ':' on the config line. The right one,
bootcmd=run boottftp;setenv bootargs $(console) $(bootargs_nfs) ip=$(ipaddr):$(serverip)$(bootargs_end);bootm 0x2000000

The other issue, was that bootargs was printenv,
bootargs=console=ttyS0,115200 mtdparts=nand_mtd:0x100000@0(uboot)ro,0x0@0x100000(uImage),0x1ff00000@0x100000(rootfs)rw root=/dev/nfs rw nfsroot=$(serverip):/tftpboot/rootfs ip=192.168.0.35:192.168.0.20::::DB88FXX81:eth0:none

bootargs did not automatically translate $(serverip) when setting nfsroot, so i hardcoded the value and it boots fine now.

Thanks all for the help. So, now, we have Ubifs enabled?! :-)
