Mainline U-Boot


#21

Hi ravelo,

I made a quick compilation test, and found that sdcard can’t work. I will double check tomorrow.


#22

Hey, has work on the Vim1 been abandoned… ?:cold_sweat:

Looks like it’s 99% of the way to having mainline linux support… I guess the release on the Vim2 has put a nail in the coffin for the Vim1 :frowning_face:


#23

Hi, i personaly do not mind if sdcard does not work under uboot if emmc works fine


#24

you know, I might have replied in the wrong thread :grimacing:

But looking at the “mainline linux” thread it seems like you’ve hit some walls with your awesome work. Seem the Khadas guys were helping you out before - so I thought I’d ping them :stuck_out_tongue:

Wish I could be a bit more constructive - but building kernels is really outside my experience :smile:


#25

Hi, Geokon:
Our team and 3rd party developers still working on VIM1, you can check that we just released both Android N and DualOS ROMs for both VIM1 and VIM2 last week, actually, as I said before, VIM1 users will get at least 5 years technical supporting.

Do worry about that, I think may be we still need to focus more and develop more better ROMs for both VIMs. :wink:

Anyway, thanks for the voice!

PS: it did off topic here :slightly_frowning_face:


#26

You can upload these files to u-boot ?


#27

Hi balbes150,

Sorry I can’t understand well, do you mean u-boot image or source code? :wink:

Thanks.


#28

I mean the files are ready

u-boot.bin
u-boot.bin.sd.bin


#29

Hi balbes150,

You can find mainline u-boot for VIM here.

Thanks.


#30

Hi numbqq

Tried your files, u-boot from the SD card starts.

Tried to compile from source Baylibre\u-boot\khadas-vim (using the instructions for building u-boot for Khadas). Got the file u-boot.bin u-boot-nodtb.bin u-boot.elf etc. have Tried to use these files, there is not any reaction. Maybe I incorrectly collected. What commands you used to build ?


#31

By the way, your version of u-boot.bin.sd.bin the SD card works. I can manually load it with the kernel, initrd, dtb and run booti. The kernel starts normally. But for some reason not running the script executing s905_autoscript. The system writes about a bad voltage for the SD card. Perhaps the reason is that in the no team “autoscr” and have to try to use the command “source”.


#32

Make a simple script (for mainline u-boot) to test the kernel from the SD card on VIM. Kernel 4.x this script runs, but the whole system has not yet run. I think it’s because of the wrong kernel and dtb.

Log runs u-boot and system

#33

Hi balbes150,

So you can load files from SD card? When try to read SD card info, I got some errors.

=> mmcinfo
Card did not respond to voltage select!
mmc_init: -95, time 9
=> 

Armbian + KODI (Ubuntu\Debian) for SD & USB & eMMC
#34

This message does not stop to retrieve files from SD card. Pay attention to the number of the SD card in this u-boot is set to 1 (fatload mmc 1 0x1100000 zImage).

Above I showed the log run from SD card the kernel (using the automatic script boot.scr).

Now check the run this u-boot with SD card in the VIM2 (S912) … everything works the same as VIM (S905X) :slight_smile: . This means that these files, u-boot has support for both platforms VIM and VIM2. :slight_smile:
