(NetBSD 7.0 i386)
add to build.sh option:
modload command miss. Properly do this:
To install NetBSD from the USB images provided from the site, it is necessary to enable "UEFI/Legacy Boot" and to change the "UEFI/Legacy Boot Priority" to "Legacy First". Also, Enable the "USB UEFI BIOS Support" and disable "USB 3.0 Mode".
After booting the USB image but before installing everything, you may want to switch back to MBR (instead of GPT). To do this, drop to the shell prompt and delete GPT from the drives:
gpt destroy wd0
gpt destroy wd1
What works: X11 (with new DRM/KMS work), audio, SSD and HDD, trackpoint, keyboard backlight (doesn't seem to depend on OS drivers). What doesn't work: onboard wireless (buy a cheap USB wireless adapter), suspend/hibernate/resume, special function keys (turn up/down volume, etc.).
The new Synaptic Trackpad works with basic functions. Cursor movement and left click only.
Tried with NetBSD 7.0.
This configuration is grossly complicated and adds extra configurations which does not make sense to use all. uEnv.txt? So, here is the simple breakdown for someone who just wants to get a working boot on cubietruck. The config files that come with the download seem made only for odroid with some sloppy config to look like it should work for others.
Done and bootable now. If the screen goes black after boot, unplug and re-plugin the hdmi cable
I want to boot my Raspberry Pi with evbarmeb. evbarmeb - is the Big-endian version of Netbsd, please correct me if I'm wrong.
I'm not able to boot it. I tried the following steps to create the bootable SD Card :
1. wget http://nyftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD-daily/HEAD/201602270000Z/evbarm-earmv7hfeb/binary/gzimg/armv7.img.gz
2. gunzip armv7.img.gz
3. dd if=armv7.img of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=4M
But I'm able to boot it with the normal evbarm7hf image.
I have the following for my BPI
bpi# cat /boot/uEnv.txt
bootargs=root=wd0a -v c0nsole=fb fb.margin=60 armv7.dcache=1
aload_script=fatload mmc 0 0x43000000 bananapi/script.bin;
aload_kernel=fatload mmc 0 0x48000000 netbsd.ub; bootm 0x48000000;
uenvcmd=run aload_script aload_kernel
with this version of u-boot:
U-Boot 2014.04-10693-gf954935 (Aug 06 2014 - 11:18:37) Allwinner Technology
Maybe this explains the boot problems people have seen. Any further problems please send-pr.
1m will not work on Linux. m must be CAPITAL not lower char.
I downloaded armv7.img from official FTP, dd'd u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin to it, made boot.cmd as per instructions and connected BPI to a Samsung LED TV via hdmi cable. I see the initial boot, however it fails with a black screen after "transferring control to NetBSD stage-2 loader (at address 40007800)". What am I doing wrong?
Here is the picture of boot-up: http://imgur.com/uMNI7ay
I initially thought it was a screen resolution problem, but I tried everything in uEnv.txt without success.
