Facing issue in loading UART for Beaglebone debian

#1

Following are my configurations:

I have a beaglebone with Debian OS. I have an sd card with 4 Partitions.

Partition 1 ( mmcblk0p1 ) contains following bootloader configurations:-

1. /boot/dtbs/4.14.71-ti-r80/am335x-bonegreen-wireless.dtb
2. /boot/vmlinuz-4.14.71-ti-r80
3. /boot/uEnv.txt
4. /boot/initrd.img-4.14.71-ti-r80
5. /lib/firmware/BB-UART4-00A0.dtbo
6. /lib/firmware/BB-UART1-00A0.dtbo
7. /lib/firmware/BB-I2C2-00A0.dtbo
8. /lib/firmware/AM335X-PRU-UIO-00A0.dtbo
9. /lib/firmware/BB-BBGW-WL1835-00A0.dtbo
10. /lib/firmware/BB-BONE-eMMC1-01-00A0.dtbo
11. /lib/firmware/BB-ADC-00A0.dtbo
12. /uEnv.txt

Partition 2 ( mmcblk0p2 ) contains the Debian OS.

Partition 3 ( mmcblk0p3 ) contains another Debian OS.

Partition 4 ( mmcblk0p4 ) decides from Which partition to boot?

/uEnv.txt from mmcblk0p1 reads from mmcblk0p4 and decides from which partition to boot.

In /boot/uEnv.txt I have enabled following Configs:

    uname_r=4.14.71-ti-r80
    enable_uboot_overlays=1
    uboot_overlay_addr0=/lib/firmware/BB-UART4-00A0.dtbo
    uboot_overlay_addr1=/lib/firmware/BB-UART1-00A0.dtbo
    uboot_overlay_addr2=/lib/firmware/BB-I2C2-00A0.dtbo
    uboot_overlay_pru=/lib/firmware/AM335X-PRU-RPROC-4-14-TI-00A0.dtbo
    enable_uboot_cape_universal=1
    cmdline=coherent_pool=1M net.ifnames=0 quiet

This is my /uEnv.txt:

I am unable to understand What’s going wrong here?

Thanks

@sharvin26, first please don’t jump mailing list’s. It’s impolite to anyone stuck with a similar problem…

Original Thread: https://groups.google.com/d/msg/beagleboard/1bgHA-JWdDQ/xH-ukjsFAwAJ

As one of the users of both mailing list, I will be asking you to post your solution back to the original thread.

Second, as stated, the “uenvcmd” is not supported in general, as you can pretty do anything you want. Thus it’s up to “YOU” to implement what you want.

From your “current” issue:

test - minimal test like /bin/sh
Usage:
test [args..]

Looking at your previous file with your current build, there is no “new” test function call? It looks like you didn’t copy the two files correctly somewhere…

Moving on to your last issue on the other thread:

https://groups.google.com/d/msg/beagleboard/1bgHA-JWdDQ/3mUu6kcvBAAJ

You had used

setenv fdt_buffer 0x60000; \ 
fatload mmc 0:1 ${rdaddr} /lib/firmware/BB-UART4-00A0.dtbo; \         
fdt addr ${fdtaddr}; \
fdt resize ${fdt_buffer}; \ 
fdt apply ${rdaddr}; \ 
fdt resize ${fdt_buffer}; \ 
fatload mmc 0:1 ${rdaddr} /lib/firmware/BB-UART1-00A0.dtbo; \ 

When i had recommended:

    if run loadfdt; then \ 
        echo Loaded ${fdtfile}; \ 
        setenv fdt_buffer 0x60000; \ 
        load mmc 0:1 ${rdaddr} /lib/firmware/BB-UART4-00A0.dtbo; \ 
        fdt addr ${fdtaddr}; \ 
        fdt resize ${fdt_buffer}; \ 
        fdt apply ${rdaddr}; \ 
        fdt resize ${fdt_buffer}; \ 
        load mmc 0:1 ${rdaddr} /lib/firmware/BB-UART1-00A0.dtbo; \ 
        fdt addr ${fdtaddr}; \ 
        fdt resize ${fdt_buffer}; \ 
        fdt apply ${rdaddr}; \ 
        fdt resize ${fdt_buffer}; \ 
        <and so on> 
        <and so on> 
        if run loadimage; then \ 
            run mmcargs; \ 
            bootz ${loadaddr} - ${fdtaddr}; \ 
        fi; \ 
    fi; 

That should work, as it’s the way we’ve been shipping u-boot for a few years…

Anywho, let’s just move on to option B… Just use the command line “fdtoverlay”

3) fdtoverlay -- Flat Device Tree overlay applicator

The fdtoverlay applies an arbitrary number of FDT overlays to a base FDT blob
to a given output file.

The syntax of the fdtoverlay command line is:

    fdtoverlay -i <base-blob> -o <output-blob> <overlay-blob0> [<overlay-blob1> ...]

Where options are:
    -i, --input         Input base DT blob
    -o, --output        Output DT blob
    -v, --verbose       Verbose message output

and thus bypassing doing overlays in your “uenvcmd” script…
