How to migrate to new hardware

A few months ago I dried one of my OPiPC with a 12V power supply and I have not had a chance to try and revive it. So I am looking to migrate the existing 128GB sd card to a OPi Zero.

 

From what I understand, the following would need to be done

Mount the SD card (ideally on a linux BOX or VM)

Replace script.bin with a suitable file 

Sync

Eject 

Enjoy

 

Can anyone confirm?  Do I need to swap the kernel as well, or is it ok to keep the existing one?

 

As for the script.bin, what's the best way to get one?  Download an image and mount it, use fex2bin to generate one?

 

Any help is appreciated.

 

Thank you!

 

*** EDIT: DON'T. DON'T. DON'T. I THOUGHT IT WAS WORKING, BUT ENDED UP REINSTALLING FROM SCRATCH AS THIS IS MUCH LESS EFFORT OVERALL

It will even work to simply boot the Zero with the PC image without exchanging script.bin first. But then you'll run in ARISC errors which is not that funny when you're logged in via serial console. In case you login through SSH it's perfectly OK to boot the Zero with your image, then grab https://raw.githubusercontent.com/armbian/build/master/config/fex/orangepizero.fex and convert it using fex2bin, relink script.bin to the new file, reboot.

 

Then apply all available updates, reboot again and get back to us with the output from 'sudo armbianmonitor -u' to get an advice which Armbian debs to replace with what.

 

Important: Take care that you've a good power supply and cable in between PSU and board: http://www.cnx-software.com/2017/04/27/selecting-a-micro-usb-cable-to-power-development-boards-or-charge-phones/

@tkaiser, thanks for the quick reply.

 

I have hooked up power on from a 3A 5V adapter to the single row connector pins on pin 1+2, hooked up a USB/Serial dongle to the TX/RX/GND pins and connected the board with the old sd card in place.

 

Here is the serial output:

I'm preparing to install updates right now.

 

That little guy certainly doesn't feel as snappy as the OpiPC

 

I''ll post a follow up when updates are completed.

@jhpadjustable That would explain it!  

 

@tkaiser, the logs were uploaded to : http://sprunge.us/djZG

 

** edit - just noticed that apt-get upgrade had not completed before I uploaded the logs.  I had to run apt-get -f install and let it complete to fix some issues.  Upgrade is running now and I will report again once it's done.


I'll be testing more today; my end goal is to set this little guy as a portable Squeezebox player with the following

- hostapd (unlikely that the builtin hardware supports it, so I have some known-to-be-working-chipset wifi dongles available)

- Some audio output that is of "good enough" quality (if I'm using an external wifi dongle, I might just purchase a cheap expansion board)

 

The biggest issue right now is that I have to stay connected to serial to issue ifdown/ifup as network doesn't want to automatically get an IP address during the initialization sequence.  the log below, starting at 10:02, shows what happens after ifdown eth0;ifup eth0

@tkaiser, here is the result of the armbian monitor: http://sprunge.us/IYjM
** Edit: I think I need to reboot before posting this... sorry. Reboting now and will re-execute armbianmonitor

** Edit 2: The little guy is no longer booting.  Below is the output from serial.  Will try to troubleshoot now.

I guess I'll have to mount the sd card on a linux machine and fix the boot section, but I'll need some guidance from someone better qualified than myself as I am not sure where to get the content from

 

I have tried the troubleshooting steps documented for Armbian with no luck. Here is the output from the serial console:

This was after trying to follow the troubleshooting guide.  What I have done instead is changing the verbosity level and redirecting the output from the boot to the console.  Booting ends with a kernel panic message

 

Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exitcode=0x00000000

 

Note that the environment is setup like this

bootargs = console=ttyS0,115200 console=tty1 root= rootwait rootfstype=ext4 cgroup_enable=memory swapaccount=1 sunxi_ve_mem_reserve=0 sunxi_g2d_mem_reserve=0 sunxi_fb_mem_reserve=16 hdmi.audio=EDID:0 disp.screen0_output_mode=1920x1080p60 panic=10 consoleblank=0 enforcing=0 loglevel=7 storage_type=

Here is the full log. Should I post as "spoilers" or "code" is fine?

Well, it's hard to spot the reason for init going to die here. It sounds somewhat lame but IIRC I encountered that when testing with 'broken' SD cards.

 

In case you have another Linux box try to check the filesystem there and maybe the best thing is to start over with a fresh SD card that has been tested and then copy over stuff from the previous installation?

I definitely have another linux box from which I can manipulate images. The sole reason why I am trying to keep that one is that it's my only 128gb sd card and it's 90% full from my compressed music library. Reformatting and re-copying that much data will no doubt introduce wear on that card, which I am trying to avoid.  If I were to grab "stuff" from existing images and overwrite what's on the 128gb card, what would it be?  Kernel? boot folder? 

 

I might just bite the bullet and start from scratch, but it would be best if I could avoid that.

If you're currently running in issues related to filesystem corruption then overwriting anything is not the best idea. I would first run a FS check on another machine then think about later steps.

Ran e2fsck, and it looks like this something was fixed.

rebooted and got the same kernel panic

Posting more progress here in case someone ends up needing the same as myself.   I have decided to replace boot and kernel from my SD card using the content of a proper Orange Pi Zero image and it goes like this

  1. Download the image of choice
  2. Mount the image on a linux machine
  3. Mount the SD card on a Linux machine
  4. Rename /boot on the original SD card to /boot.bak (just to be safe)
  5. Copy the /boot content from the recent image to /boot of the sd card
  6. Copy the content of /usr/src from the recent image to /usr/src of the sd card
  7. Open file /boot/armbianEnv.txt and grab the uuid identifier from "rootdev" (e.g. fd472eba-571d-4583-8873-97f09353655c)
  8. Find the partition name of the sd card that is being changed (e.g. /dev/sdzz)
  9. Change the uuid sudo tune2fs /dev/sdzz -U fd472eba-571d-4583-8873-97f09353655c
  10. Merge modules to load (/etc/modules or some similar files).  Chances are the new image doesn't have the extra modules that had been installed under the previous kernel
  11. sync
  12. sudo e2fsck -fD /dev/sdd1
  13. sync (just in case)
  14. Eject the card and try to boot it up

I will report on progress (if any)

@tkaiser I think I made progress here!

 

The little guy seems to be wanting to boot now (woot!).  I'm going to try and explore. So far, 2 services failed to start:

- Login Service

- DHCP Server (this is to be expected, as it was bound to a subnet/network card that isnt there yet)

 

 

**Edit : the little guy is definitely booting up now, so I'm considering this as resolved!

Well, reporting after playing with it for some time.  I think this could work when jumping from platform to platform as long as it's on the same version of Armbian.  Doing this in my case resulted in missing quite a bit of the update scripts for that platform and a few things were not properly configured.  So as an additional step, and to avoid the wear of copying 100gb+ of data back from a full re-install, I ended up mounting the sd card and the latest armbian image on a linux machine and copied from ./ recursively to the sd card.  I think this will still not be perfect ** some symlinks were not copied properly (for example I had to apt-get install --reinstall tzdata).

 

@tkaiser I'm thinking that it might have been better to just take a risk of scrapping the sd card and follow your advice! Next time... !

Alright, anyone reading this, don't do it. JUST DON'T. do. It. Don't!

 

Not worth the effort, even to try not to wear an SD card.

 

This have me the opportunity to confirm that the pi zero is a good contender for a portable squeezebox server with hostapd and all, but now I have to scrap and rebuild because this method resulted in a mess of simlink and dependencies.

 

Bottom line is reformat and start from scratch; it will take much less effort overall than trying to salvage what cannot be!
