Armbian customization


Recommended Posts

Hi to All,

 

Unfortunately, following tkaise's advises do not help me for now.

 

The problem comes from starting RPI Monitor service and this advise do not help me to avoid it as well.

I try to add proposed scrip in both host and chrooted rootfs but none of them do work.

 

Debian debootstrap is doing that by magic but there is no no way to take advantage from it without modifying Armbian.

 

On the other hand my idea to do that in firstrun script is also barren because partition is stripped and probably thirdrun script will help.

 

Any better ideas?

 

Best regards

Chris

Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

Hi to All,

 

I have just received from Olimex 2 boards A20-OLinuXino-LIME2-eMMC with new HW rev. E.

The main differences in new HW rev D and E are:

  • Completely re-routed the Ethernet and the EEPROM in order to reduce noise
  • Added eMMC option (can be used instead of NAND). By default everything is set to NAND

I have started a new thread on Olimex forum about A20-OLinuXino-LIME2-eMMC with new HW rev. E.

 

In brief the good news are that GB Ethernet is working and PMU is much cooler but NAND driver fails and there is some discrepancy in HW info data.

 

Unfortunately, there is no information on how to switch from default NAND to eMMC option which is important to me so any help is welcome.

 

Best regards

Chris

Hi Igor,

 

You will (probably) need to patch u-boot, see this example for some other A20 boards with second MMC.

 

http://lists.denx.de/pipermail/u-boot/2015-March/209464.html

 

or Cubieboard second SD card addon:

 

https://github.com/igorpecovnik/lib/blob/second/patch/u-boot/second_sd_card_cubieboard2.patch

 

I have also read carefully Add support for CB2-2Card (Cubieboard 2 with two cards).

 

Unfortunately, there are a few differences with normal mmc2:

  • There is no card detect pin
  • Data are 8 bit wide instead of 4
  • eMM chip used (MTFC4GACAANA-4M_IT) has a negative RST input connected to PC16/NWP/SDC2_RST

As I understand from chip datasheet unsupported reset input may not be an issue.

About using 8 bit data I see suspicion it is not supported by SoC.

 

My tries to modify fex/bin files in customised by me Armbian with legacy kernel 3.4.111 did not succeed.

The best result is with 4/8 bit buswidth and manual detmode (4):

[mmc2_para]
sdc_used = 1
sdc_detmode = 4
sdc_buswidth = 8
sdc_cmd = port:PC06<3><1><2><default>
sdc_clk = port:PC07<3><1><2><default>
sdc_d0 = port:PC08<3><1><2><default>
sdc_d1 = port:PC09<3><1><2><default>
sdc_d2 = port:PC10<3><1><2><default>
sdc_d3 = port:PC11<3><1><2><default>
sdc_d4 = port:PC12<3><1><2><default>
sdc_d5 = port:PC13<3><1><2><default>
sdc_d6 = port:PC14<3><1><2><default>
sdc_d7 = port:PC15<3><1><2><default>
sdc_det =
sdc_use_wp = 0
sdc_wp =
sdc_isio = 0
sdc_regulator = "none"

NAND disabled and card2_boot_para modifies accordingly. Boot messages about mmc2 are:

[    1.850415] [mmc-msg] sdc2 set round clock 400000, src 24000000
[    1.858631] [mmc-msg] sdc2 set ios: clk 0Hz bm OD pm OFF vdd 3.3V width 1 timing LEGACY(SDR12) dt B
[    1.866832] [mmc-msg] sdc2 Probe: base:0xf05f6000 irq:66 sg_cpu:f05f8000(4fc01000) ret 0.
[    1.871443] [mmc_pm]: failed to fetch sdio card configuration!
[    1.989028] [mmc_pm]: No sdio card, please check your config !!

In a Fex guide I see that detmode 4 means "manually (via the proc file system node)".

Is there a need something to be added and where?

 

I have also make a brief test with Armbian_4.5_Lime2_Debian_jessie_4.2.3 from Armbian site but there is no a message about mmc2 at boot.

 

I do not use patched U-Boot for now but expect as a beginning the kernel to recognize eMMC connected as MMC2 on A20-Olinuxino-Lime2-eMMC (HW rev. E).

 

Later on I expect to boot from it as fail over of MMC0, USB or SATA when the user pushes a button while resetting or powering on the board.

Is it a must to migrate to the mainline Kernel and latest U-Boot for achieving such a requirement?

 

As a new Olimex board revision it will need additional support so any help is welcome.

 

Best regards

Chris

Hi to All,

 

I have just made a small step ahead using Armbian_4.5_Lime2_Debian_jessie_4.2.3 from Armbian repository and changing  /boot/dtb/sun7i-a20-olinuxino-lime2.dtb as follows:

where mmcblk1: mmc1:0001 P1XXXX 3.60 GiB is right because of eMMC is 4GB.

 

There are registered following devices:

brw-rw---- 1 root disk 179,  1 Apr  4 20:19 /dev/mmcblk0p1

brw-rw---- 1 root disk 179, 24 Apr  4 20:19 /dev/mmcblk1boot1

lsblk command prints:

where lines with mmcblk1boot* are definitely wrong.

 

Trying to run 'fdisk /dev/mmcblk1' command prints:

fdisk: cannot open /dev/mmcblk1: Input/output error

Any ides how to fix the problem?

The usage of 8-bit data for mmc2 is definitely unsupported:

[    1.937052] sun7i-a20-pinctrl 1c20800.pinctrl: unsupported function mmc2 on pin PC12

which also discussed here.

 

BTW: errors like printed while booting lime2-emmc:

Use our tools, set kernel building only

KERNEL_ONLY="yes" 

in call script and use DEV branch, when prompted, instead of DEFAULT (3.4.x) / NEXT (4.4.6). Peek the (build) documentation in case of troubles.

 

Since you are switching to development area, various problems could come up, not all our patches are adjusted to this version and are not present yet. I built a DEV kernel yesterday without a problem ...

Thanks Igor,

 

I will try it and back with the results but eMMC chip is supporting both 4 and 8 bit data transfer so the problem is other.

 

BTW provoking from this post I test set up with kernel 3.4 and fex config detmode = 1 (GPIO) and sdc_det = PC16 ... (which is connected to eMMC chip RST_N and has pull-up). Unfortunately, the result is the same:

Unfortunately, adding 4 more pins and changing  bus-width from 4 to 8 cause syntax error on the line:

 allwinner,pins = "PC6", "PC7", "PC8", "PC9", "PC10", "PC11, "PC12", "PC13", "PC14", "PC15";

Probably 8-bit data bus is not supported like in kernel 4.2 but device tree is more precisely checked.

the same as in kernel 4.2.3.

 

8-bit data bus for MMC2 (probably for all MMC) is not supported!

Hi to All,

 

Finally Olimex published their new images rel. 5 with support for both A20-Olinuxino-Lime2-eMMC and A20-Olinuxino-Lime2-4GB boards.

You can find links to forum publication, their updated A20-Olinuxino-Lime2 wiki page and my first tests.

 

I have also try to apply changes to customized by me Armbian and succeed to build and boot it with following changes.

modified in lime2.fex:

[nand_para]
nand_used = 1 -> 0
...
[mmc2_para]
sdc_used = 0 -> 1
sdc_detmode = 1 -> 3

applied a20-emmc.patch

and changed in boot.cmd

root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 -> root=/dev/mmcblk1p1

In some unknown reason mmc2 (eMMC) is recognized and become /dev/mmcblk0 instead of /dev/mmcblk1 even it is not recognized by U-Boot

lsblk command reports:

root@egpr:~# lsblk

Note that mmcblk1p1 is 1.2G (size of striped partition) because resize2fs script is trying to resize mmcblk0p1

'ls -la /dev/mmc*' command reports:

eMMC read and write performance is like at Olimex image:

are quite different from once in Olimex image probably because of kernel version difference (3.4.111 vs. 3.4.103).

Note that kernel initialize sdc2 (eMMC) first which explains mmc device numbering.

 

Proposed by Olimex fix_gigabit_phy.patch to fix GBit Ethernet was not applied by me because I have found it is working before.

Unfortunately, the speed is not proven to be a GBit (~9 MB/s at download of 1GB file from eMMC).

 

Next step will be to patch u_Boot to recognize eMMC on A20-OLinuXIno-Lime2-eMMC board and change boot script to boot from both SD Card and eMMC

Hi to All,

 

I have successfully build and boot Armbian 5.07 with mainline kernel 4.4.6 supporting eMMC on A20-OLinuXIno-Lime2-eMMC board.

For successful booting I add in userpatches/lib.config:

BOOTBRANCH=v2015.10

in userpatches/kernel/sunxi-next I add a20-lime2-emmc-mainline.patch

eMMC read and write performance is better then with default kernel 3.4.111 (especially at reading):

Ethernet is connected as:

[  686.791628] sun7i-dwmac 1c50000.ethernet eth0: Link is Up - 1Gbps/Full - flow control rx/tx
[  686.791706] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): eth0: link becomes ready

Network performance measured by scp command is like with default kernel 3.4.111:

root@chr-vm-yocto:/data# scp root@192.168.1.190:/mnt/1GBfile .
root@192.168.1.190's password: 
1GBfile                                                  100% 1024MB   8.2MB/s   02:05    

More test should be done to prove if the Ethernet connection is really GBit.

Network performance

 

can't be measured by using scp! Your A20 was busy at 100% and you tested the speed of SSH encryption algorithms (that are negotiated dynamically between client and server so they may vary between different test nodes) and not network: http://linux-sunxi.org/Sunxi_devices_as_NAS#Use_the_right_tools

 

Use iperf/iperf3 -- it's far from perfect but not broken by design as scp.

Thanks tkaizer,

 

I plan to use iperf for network performance measurement.

 

Conversely to my first observation Ethernet did not work at GBit LAN at any board with Armbian.

So as a beginning I need to solve the issue but

  • Olimex have a fix_gigabit_phy.patch they for kernel 3.4.103 to solve the issue of slow Ethernet at GBit LAN.
  • Unfortunately, patched file drivers/net/phy/phy.c in kernel 3.4.111 and 4.4.6 is completely different and patch is useless.

 

The patch itself is:

+
 	if (AUTONEG_ENABLE != phydev->autoneg)
 		return genphy_setup_forced(phydev);

 

 

Any ideas how to solve the problem?

 

EDIT:

Unfortunately, the file to path is also different in sunxi Linux repository.

Fortunately, the same staff is present in file drivers/net/phy/phy_device.c.

Is it safe to apply the patch to the second file?

 

SECOND EDIT: The patch if U-Boot related.

 

Best regards

Meanwhile I try to apply similar path to file drivers/net/phy/phy_device.c:

+ 
  	if (AUTONEG_ENABLE != phydev->autoneg)
  		return genphy_setup_forced(phydev);
  

 

 

In some reason kernel compile process crashes. May be the patch is wrong.

 

EDIT: patch is for u-boot

 

How can I create patch after modifying some file in source tree (kernel for example)?

Have I to double the tree or the file inside original tree?

What command should I use: 'diff -c ...' or 'diff --git ...'?

 

EDIT:

  • Make first build without modification of the file(s)
  • edit the file(s) you want to modify
  • re-build with 'FORCE_CHECKOUT = "no"' option in compile.sh and test modification(s)
  • inside the source tree issue command 'git diff modified_file.x > /path-to-patches/modified_file.patch'
  • if more than a file is modified concatenate all files patches in a single file (respect the order if important)
  • re-build with 'FORCE_CHECKOUT = "yes"' option in compile.sh

Sorry for the "noise"

I test creating of patch with 'git diff phy_device.c > a20_gigabit_slow.patch' command (after modifying drivers/net/phy/phy_device. file):

and put it in userpatches/kernel/sunxi-next folder.

Unfortunately, file is patched but kernel compile process crashes at the same place.

 

Where is my fault?

 

EDIT: The patch is not for this file even it is not for kernel but for u-boot

The fault is to try to patch kernel instead of u-boot.

The Olimex patch:

is for the U-Boot and verified to have effect with v2015.10.

Alternative patch is proposed by Michael Haas here.

 

The result is higher then 100 Mbps performance while Lime2 Ethernet port is connected to GBit switch.

it makes eMMC usable as /dev/mmcblk1 and works fine.

 

It is time to prepare u-boot script to boot from eMMC

Copy lib/config/lime2.fex as lib/config/lime2-emmc.fex and use following patch:

I personally prefer to keep lime2-emmc.fex outside Armbian source tree and to overwrite /boot/bin/lime2.bin file in customization phase.

Hi to All,

 

Thanks to tkaize's post I succeeded to install and customize RPI Monitor 2.10 in Armbian 5.07 with Kernel 4.4.6 and run it on A20-Olinuxino-Lime2-eMMC.

 

You can find the report of the series of thermal and power tests done with and without CPU and Network load in the attached file.

 

The good news is that there are no hangs while testing even the temperatures of both CPU and PMU chips go up to 58°C.

 

EDIT:

  • Forget to mention that the tested board is out of a box (horizontal placed) and CPU has ALUMINIUM-HEATSINK-20x20x6MM.
  • Attachment slightly modified with event and Network bandwidth marks around the graphics.

 

Best regards

Chris
