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?

It's not happy on Debian 7 x64:

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


Code:
--2013-09-25 16:28:06--  http://www.xilka.com/xilka/source/patches/BinUtils-2.23.2-Add-supports-of-the-Marvell-PJ4-core.patch

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.

Yeah, you will be fine skipping that patch for kernel builds.

And yes, you must populate that armv* directory with "certain" files from your target machine's /usr/lib or /lib and /usr/include.  For the most part they really don't come into play with a kernel build, but some of the build process expects to find them.

Yippee!!  One down!!!

I've built 3.10.6 (I was running 3.10.5, and wanted something close, but with no danger of a name-space clash).
All I've done is changed this in kirkwood-3.10.6.config
Quote
#GML -  CONFIG_SERIAL_OF_PLATFORM is not set
CONFIG_SERIAL_OF_PLATFORM=y
and I now have a working serial console again!

Well, I got a full set of boot up messages.  I didn't get the console prompt until I re-enabled the TO/getty line in inittab and ran "telinit q".  (I'd disabled as it was producing message about re-=spawning too quickly.).  That all works now.

It still doesn't auto-boot on power-on, though :-(.

PS:  I forgot to mention that the nice thing about using VirtualBox+qemu is that you can end up with a large memory, multi-CPU Sheevaplug (so make -j2, etc.), and can pause the while thing in mid kernel-build, switch everything off and then start again hours later, picking up in mid-compilation.

This is what my dmesg log now shows for booting that 3.10.6 kernel:
Quote
Serial: 8250/16550 driver, 2 ports, IRQ sharing disabled
f1012000.serial: ttyS0 at MMIO 0xf1012000 (irq = 33) is a 16550A

Great work!  Can't wait to see this included in cbxbiker's build.

I guess I should see if I can find the patches to add trim support to the sd card driver so we can make our sd cards last a bit longer. (for sandisk at least!)

Ladies and Gentlemen, you are genius's (geni'i?) and I have successfully compiled 3.11.1 with the suggested configuration differences and it works! I admit the first couple of runs failed partly because I was using a copied system from another which had intensive applications running (Freeswitch) and partly because i forgot to re-enable the console in /etc/inittab. So I show the console output from the last reboot to prompt for info. I don't think I can post my config.gz file here.
Code:

I should also say that I compiled natively on an eSata Sheevaplug and thus had no need of cross compiler tools.

It still doesn't auto-boot on power-on, though :-(.
I lied.  It does auto-boot!!

I can only assume that it failed last time because I tried to connect to the console during its boot sequence, so aborted it.
But I've just powered it up from a standing start and it's come all the way up with no problem.
Which is just as well, as it was difficult to see how changing the kernel would stop a boot attempt being made.

Ladies and Gentlemen, you are genius's (geni'i?)
Or, indeed, geniuses.
But all I did was use Google - to stand on other's shoulders.  I sometimes wonder how I debugged things 20 years ago (but I did...)

I don't have a lot of time to look at this at the moment, but there is a "fresh" 3.2.51 kernel with that module.
