Kernel 3.4 on Dreamplug: no serial console

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

Hello,

I built a 3.4 kernel by grabbing the sources off kernel.org at
/pub/linux/kernel/v3.0/linux-3.4.tar.bz2

I built both the uImage with FDT support for the Dreamplug and it's respective
dtb, and placed them on the Dreamplug's internal SD. I made minor tweaks
to my U-boot env to handle FDT and proceeded to boot.

At first I thought the Dreamplug was hanging while booting the kernel, since
the console hangs at "Uncompressing Linux... done, booting the kernel."
However, doing the "post mortem" analysis and using U-boot to look at
__log_buf, I could see the kernel actually booting fine. I let it boot and
then SSHd into the box, everything seems fine.

I couldn't figure out why the serial console wasn't working, so I tried using
a newer kernel build. I cloned the 3.4 mainline git tree and built a new
kernel and dtb. This time, the kernel does hang! All I get as output
when doing the "post mortem" analysis is: "Booting Linux on physical
CPU 0."

Did I miss something while configuring the kernel? Am I not
understanding FDT and my U-boot env is messed? I'm attaching both
my U-boot env and .config in hopes that someone can help me figure
this out.

Thanks in advance!!!

Hans
