I have been trying to connect to the sheeva to access uboot. Using windows (xp), I plug the usb into the pc, mini usb to plug. I open putty in serial mode (after installing the usb to serial drivers) and leave it there, reboot plug. I never see any console input. What am I missing?
I am trying to follow through this excellent guide:http://www.openplug.org/plugwiki/index.php/Configure_U-Boot_on_the_Plug_Computer
I have downloaded his Debian image, and am trying to boot that usb flash plugged in to it.
Could anyone help point me in the right direction?
I resolved above by making sure I was using the right com port :/
I have updated the uBoot version, appear to have borked the stock install - I do not get past "booting" after uncompressing on the nand.
I am trying to set up the usb boot using the settings on the page above, and this section is what I have got to:
Marvell>> setenv bootargs_root 'root=/dev/sda1 rootdelay=10'
Marvell>> setenv bootcmd_usb 'usb start; ext2load usb 0:1 0x0800000 /boot/uInitrd; ext2load usb 0:1 0x400000 /boot/uImage'
Marvell>> setenv bootcmd 'setenv bootargs $(console) $(bootargs_root); run bootcmd_usb; bootm 0x400000 0x0800000'
Saving Environment to NAND...
Erasing Nand...Writing to Nand... done
Marvell>> run bootcmd
USB: scanning bus for devices... 2 USB Device(s) found
scanning bus for storage devices... T
It halts at this point.
The usb stick is plugged in, so im not sure how i can investigate it more?
