unfortunately i don't have a usb serial cable to see what happens, i'm doing something wrong?
Hi Gulp,

I have not used an SD, but I read somewhere the offset of u-boot on SD is 63 vice 62 on eMMC.
Without serial debug cable your work seems to be impossible.

Thank you, this evening i'll try again with seek=63 ;)

The various offsets are documented in the u-boot readme.

ok, now with

Code: Select all

dd if=u-boot-dtb.bin of=/dev/sdb seek=63
sync
the sd boot kernel 3.19 :)
but, if i try to boot with root filesystem on my hdd, the kernel use always the root partition on SD, ignoring boot.src config.

this is my boot.src to boot from hdd (it works ok on stock kernel and uboot)

Code: Select all

hddboot
setenv initrd_high "0xffffffff"
setenv fdt_high "0xffffffff"
setenv bootcmd "fatload mmc 0:1 0x40008000 zImage; fatload mmc 0:1 0x42000000 uInitrd; bootm 0x40008000 0x42000000"
setenv bootargs "console=tty1 console=ttySAC1,115200n8 root=UUID=04a6125c-95f3-45ec-ab35-2421095aa033 rootwait ro  mem=2047M"
boot
tried also with root=/dev/sda1 but with no luck :roll:

I think you have to set the right u-boot environment.
So first get you the serial debug cable.
Then you might want to read the docs that LiquidAcid pointed us to.

Also it might be worth pointing out that you can still manipulate the u-boot environment from userspace with the fw_{print,set}env utilities.

Hello!
I am trying to build mainline linux-4.1-rc6 (also tried with stable 4.0.4) on my archlinuxarm setup.
The kernel boots fine from emmc but i am running into two major problems:

1.) the usb keyboard sometime works sometimes not after boot (seems to be a race condition somewhere)
2.) ethernet will not be recognised (this is my main problem)

uboot version is: 2015.01

how i build the kernel:

make exynos_defconfig
make menuconfig ( i need to enable some modules to make the the usb keyboard work)
make -j5 zImage modules dtbs
make modules_install

cat arch/arm/boot/zImage arch/arm/boot/dts/exynos4412-odroidu3.dtb > zImage_dtb

Than i copy zImage_dtb to /boot and rename it to zImage,

Any help is appreceated!

How usable are these kernels? I want to try Docker in my U3 but I need a more modern kernel to do so. I use my U3 as a headless server, so I do not care for X or any other graphic library and only use one USB.

is running on an U3 here now for 60 days.

You can even give mainline 4.4 a try now.
Even X/HDMI is working just without Mali.

Interesting discussion thread here! These days I am back around hacking with one of my U2s, which I assume it will run same kernel as U3s do.
My end goal would be to run a modern 4.x kernel (instead of the current 3.8.y); seems like you have already achieved this.

Is there any chance we will get the Mali binaries for accelerated graphics support on a 4.x kernel? (I guess not).

So, to recap, in order to use mainline 4.x (using LiquidAcid's repos) I would have to: I am not using accelerated graphics with this U2 at the moment, so I guess it should work.

AFAIK the U2 and U3 differ in routing of USB and audio, both which shouldn't matter for the kernel.

@LiquidAcid I see in that commit range that you have merged and cleaned up ARM's driver, that's great. Can't wait to give it a try.

Not sure if it has been mentioned, but once u-boot is built one needs to copy the dtb this way:

Code: Select all

cp ./arch/arm/dts/exynos4412-odroid.dtb /mnt/realBoot/exynos4412-odroidu3.dtb
The name must be exactly exynos4412-odroidu3.dtb, at least in u-boot v2015.01 which I am currently trying.

I built 4.4.y and I am using LiquidAcid's vanilla config (I just removed the -vanilla local suffix); the u-boot process seems fine:

Code: Select all

Only problem is that it gets stuck at that line "Starting kernel ..." and CPU goes probably at 100% use (fan gets spinning). At this point I guess there's something wrong with the initramfs/kernel, I'll keep tinkering around it (not the first time I've seen this behavior). Once fixed this I'll probably try latest u-boot mainline.

Edit: same behavior by removing the uInitrd
Edit 2: other differences I noticed: a boot.scr which works with Hardkernel's older version of u-boot will not work with a more recent (v2015.01) u-boot, thus it will try to boot from the default partition 2 of the SD card instead of boot.scr's specified kernel command line rootfs

See what u-boot already tells you. It's using the default environment, which is probably your issue here.

The root partition issue is not a big problem; I am stuck at the "Starting kernel..." line, the u-boot output is in previous post (although there I was incorrectly using an uInitrd). What could cause the kernel to not be loaded? Normally I would think about compression methods compatibility, but I don't think that's the issue here

Try 'bootz' instead of 'bootm' in your boot.txt/scr file.

You should supply at least the uboot env and everything it depends on, otherwise you won't get much help.

My boot.scr (the part after binary data):

Code: Select all

setenv fdt_high "0xffffffff"
setenv bootcmd "fatload mmc 0:1 0x40008000 zImage; fatload mmc 0:1 0x42000000 uInitrd; bootm 0x40008000 0x42000000"
setenv bootargs "console=tty1 console=ttySAC1,115200n8 root=UUID=2cba3ad4-817b-4614-a721-f7fd9c040eca rootwait ro  mem=2047M"
boot
exynos4412-odroidu3.dtb (zipped)
kernel is built from https://github.com/tobiasjakobi/linux-o ... ecd1dbaa2e with vanilla config

Note that - as per rootfs parameter - the system would be booting from an external USB hard disk instead of a microSD partition.
I have removed uInitrd from the fat32 partition on purpose to skip it, as I think this kernel (4.4.6) does not need it; it hangs equally when using the built uInitrd.

I still get the hanging and full CPU usage:

Shall I rebuild boot.scr without the uInitrd references? Maybe I remember incorrectly that it would not be necessary for uInitrd to be there even if specified in boot.scr?

Correct, the default env depends on your u-boot version. And as you can see it's pretty complex in the sense that does a lot of branching in its script execution, hence my advice to replace it by a simpler version tailored to your system. In particular you might've already noticed that your boot script isn't even loaded by the environment, so your own bootargs never apply (including your rootfs setting).

Additionally to fixing up the env you should also enable earlyprintk support in the kernel and enable it. That should give you more information in the early initialization stage of the kernel.

LiquidAcid wrote:Correct, the default env depends on your u-boot version. And as you can see it's pretty complex in the sense that does a lot of branching in its script execution, hence my advice to replace it by a simpler version tailored to your system. In particular you might've already noticed that your boot script isn't even loaded by the environment, so your own bootargs never apply (including your rootfs setting).

Additionally to fixing up the env you should also enable earlyprintk support in the kernel and enable it. That should give you more information in the early initialization stage of the kernel.
I reduced it to a simple version that I copy/paste over serial interface (not all at once, can't handle it):

Code: Select all

setenv kerneladdr 0x40007FC0
setenv kernelname zImage
fdtaddr=40800000
fdtfile=exynos4412-odroidu3.dtb
mmcbootdev=0
mmcbootpart=1
setenv fdt_addr ${fdtaddr}
setenv bootargs "console=tty1 console=ttySAC1,115200n8 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 ro  mem=2047M"
setenv initrd_addr -

fatload mmc ${mmcbootdev}:${mmcbootpart} ${fdtaddr} ${fdtfile}
fatload mmc ${mmcbootdev}:${mmcbootpart} ${kerneladdr} ${kernelname}
bootz ${kerneladdr} ${initrd_addr} ${fdt_addr}
This gets me a completely hung console after:

Code: Select all

Starting kernel ...
So now I'll try enabling early printk as you suggested; for those interested, I have spawn a separate thread for my U-boot issues: http://forum.odroid.com/viewtopic.php?f ... 3&p=163863

Edit: I enabled early printk on UART2, no luck. There is nothing displayed.

Edit 2: there is to say that now I am using U-boot master and that loads correctly boot.scr by default (my March post had no boot.scr loaded because I was using a 2015 u-boot version)

Yeah this was an useful tip, but unfortunately the 2015 version of u-boot didn't load boot.scr for odroid devices. That is in place on u-boot master version now.

I am using the DTB built by U-boot (master). Any ideas?

Edit 1: tried torvalds' v4.8, same kernel panic :?:
Edit 2: now running torvalds' v4.8 successfully! the problem was that I was using U-boot's dtb while by using the kernel (make dtbs) .dtb, everything works fine. Thanks for the help with this :)

Hello everyone,

Does anybody here use linux mainline 4.9 or anything close to it?
If so, could you please provide your /boot directory, kernel .config, and boot.scr ?

Currently I have no way of getting the console output of my U3 to debug my boot problems, but it seems the kernel is at least starting because the blue LED is "heartbeating".

Thanks a lot!

@Cypher: there's a package on AUR: linux-odroid-u3-git ( https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/linux-odroid-u3-git )
The package includes a uEnv.txt, just fix the root file system device path.

It's mostly working. FAN is controllable by writing 0 to 255 to /sys/class/hwmon/hwmon0/pwm1
Reboot does NOT work: it shuts the system down fine, but the reboot syscall does not reboot the board. I tried to debug it a little, but the kernel changed a lot between 3.18 from hardkernel and 4.13 mainline, so it's tough.

The fan should be automatically controlled by the kernel. You're probably missing some kernel config (see e.g. Nico's blog post as reference, there should be a kernel config there).

The reboot problem is known to me. Probably some regression introduced with 4.13.0. Maybe related to EPLL/VPLL.

Not any longer, I'm pretty sure. In the hardkernel fork there was a kernel driver for auto fan control, but that does not exist in mainline.
LiquidAcid wrote:(see e.g. Nico's blog post as reference, there should be a kernel config there).
Yeah, he's doing the same thing I'm doing: a userspace process monitors temp and sets PWM.

Sidenote: There's actually a tool for that 'fancontrol' and 'pwmconfig' from lm_sensors package, BUT I tried it and it looks like pwmconfig requires feedback (RPM sensing from the fan) and refuses to recognize a fan (it finds the PWM control, but fails due to lack of fan_* files). Probably could patch the tool, or patch the kernel to include the fan_* files that the tool expects (even if dummy).

I tried to manually hack in the same wrtie(0x1, S5P_SWRESET), by manually calculating the address of S5P_SWRESET from the hardkernel 3.18 kernel, but the mainline kernel paniced on write to this address. Sad. Please post if you fix it.

The generic thermal framework now handles this. It already does since some kernel versions. Your information is out-dated.

Also see what Nico writes:

See above.

EDIT: Looked it up, and support is in mainline since 4.4, see reference.

Ok, thank you. The config switches are CONFIG_THERMAL, CONFIG_CLOCK_THERMAL, and related, under Device Drivers -> Generic Thermal sysfs driver.

I can confirm that it does control the fan depending on temp/load. The temp trip point is at 70C. But, I lowered the trip points to 50,70,90,100, instead via:
sudo bash -c 'echo 50000 > /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/trip_point_0_temp'
and the rest, respectively.

Nice, good to know that it works correctly. Please consider adding some information to the Linux-Exynos Wiki. I guess that this might be of interest to a lot of U3 users.

Ok, now we have a major problem. The smsc95x ehternet driver and/or usbnet is dying under load. It appears that a stall of some kind is detected, and then it attempts to reset the usb endpoint, which probably fails. After the death, lots of these get printed, but I think the root cause is the "halt". I'm pretty sure one of the usbnet_defer_kevent (dev, EVENT_TX_HALT) calls (or the EVENT_RX_HALT) happens, which does not look normal but more like an error path.

Code: Select all

smsc95xx 1-2:1.0 eth0: kevent 0 may have been dropped

UPDATE: The fatal network stall that happened on TobiasJakobi's 4.13, is also happening on 4.9.52 mainline, but has not been happening on 4.4.89 and not on 4.14-rc3, which is great news. It is possible that there is a difference in configs, but I tried to keep configs based on exynos_defconfig with few (and the same) modifications in all tests. Have been running for 2.5 days on 4.14-rc3, whereas network stalled within several hours in the other cases.

Looks like something that you should report upstream. I can also see these 'kevent 0 may have been dropped' message from time to time on my system, but I have yet to see any Oops.

i just gave the odroid-v4.20.y tree a try and compiled it based on the exynos_defconfig plus enabling the mali driver module for my odroid u3. it boots fine as long as no hdmi monitor is connected, but if i connect a monitor to the hdmi port it hangs in the middle of the boot forever. has this tree been already tested with a hdmi monitor connected? i have this same u3 running perfectly fine with 4.19.10 mainline, also the hdmi monitor does not make any trouble there. comparing the dmesg output of the working 4.19.10 kernel with the one from the odroid-v4.20.y tree without hdmi monitor i noticed the following hdmi related differences in the newer tree:

just a little update: to a/b test i transplanted all of the mali patches of the odroid-v4.20,y tree to a mainline 4.19.17 tree and this one boots fine with the mointor attached and the mali driver initialized properly as well and no more errortrace. looks like the above problem is maybe related to 4.20.

now the questions is: which xf86-video-armsoc tree to use for this driver and the r5p0 mali blob. i found old references to a tree from dsd which seems to have been moved to endlessm - i built this one from the master branch, but then the x-server does not start properly. is another branch or another tree of the armsoc driver required here? any help is appreciated.

i tried to compile it, but failed as it seems to use other of your patches in your kernel tree as well, which are not in my 4.19.x + your mali patches tree. it did not compile out of the box. maybe to give some more details about the problems i see with the 4.19.x + mali patches tree: mali module loads well and the logs look good, /dev/mali is there and set to proper permissions, armsoc xserver starts, uses the armsoc driver and is useable - at least partially: there is no mouse cursor and i so far was not able to create one despite of playing around with SWCursor and HWCursor options in the xorg.conf. as soon as i try to run an es2 application (like es2_info) with the proper r5p0 mali libs installed i get

Code: Select all

Error: eglCreateContext failed
and the kernel logs:

Code: Select all

Mali<2>: OS allocator: Failed to allocate memory (-14)
looks more like a mali kernel module / kernel interaction problem than a problem with the armsoc driver. any idea what might be the cause of that alloc error? kernel is booted with cma=256M.

is your updated odroid-v4.14.y tree tested to work with mali and armsoc x11? maybe i should give this one a try then. the v4.20.y does hang for me on boot with a hdmi monitor connected as mention above.

a lot of thanks in advance and best wishes - hexdump

I have been trying the latest mainline for my U3. It boots without any freezes so far, obviously without Mali support. The only issue I have is with the ethernet. The interface randomly goes down. Initially it went down as soon as I put some significant network load on it. After disabling turbo mode for the driver it does not go down with load but more randomly, after around 24h, still with the same stack trace. The config is pretty much vanilla with only some netfilter modules added. I havn't been able to find any workaround for the issue.

Re: Running Mainline Linux Kernel on U3

Unread post by mories » Sat Mar 02, 2019 6:40 am

I have compiled a kernel 4.19.26 mainline + @LiquidAcid's mali driver of the 4.20.y tree (the only changes needed are those related to vmf_insert_pfn and devfreq_turbo_get/put).

My U3 boot and run quite correctly.
The problem I have identified for now is the lack of /dev/mali. The driver, both as module or built-in (and with debug enabled), is loaded correctly (see messages),

Code: Select all

[  122.698328] Mali<2>: Inserting Mali v600 device driver. 
[  122.698343] Mali<2>: Driver revision: r5p0-01rel0
[  122.698348] Mali<2>: mali_module_init() registering driver
[  122.698717] Mali: Mali device driver loaded
however, /dev/mali is not created.
Does anyone have any clue what can be the problem?

@hexdump, you have a similar configuration and it seems you have /dev/mali. Can you share your kernel config?

Using https://github.com/mdrjr/xf86-video-arm ... e/r4p0.zip + patch https://github.com/akuster/meta-odroid/ ... rsor.patch
you get the cursor on X.

Regarding the mali driver (see my previous post) I can't generate /dev/mali, even though driver loads and initializes correctly.
Does anyone have any ideas?
