Improving aarch64-image booting (+ ESPRESSObin network setup)

Thanks @gandalf and @arne_f for the initial findings and recomendations to boot IPFire on expressobin hardware.

I have an 1GHz espressobin board (the regular, not the ultra version) which is confirmed to “only” come with one internal 1Gb duplex connection to an internal 3x1Gb ethernet switch, but it also has one separate mPCIe slot for an additional ethernet, Wifi, or SATA-controller. Unfortunately, the slot does not directly support mSATA cards. And there does not seem to be a (battery buffered?) real-time clock.

I hope for QoS to decently manage an (occasional) 900Mbit speed (backup/restore) between green<->orange, while routing the consumer grade VDSL home internet of red.

Not all my attempts to boot from sdcard and to follow your recommendations did work out.
But I could reproduce @gandalf’s boot method.

EDIT:

What I could not find out is how to manually (re)run the initial network gui (wiki.ipfire.org - Step 5: Network Setup), or to properly configure the 3 interfaces manually.
How were you able to configure the MACs etc. gandalf?

See solution below: Post #4 - “0). Booting)



Trying the recommended .scr loading:
(not sure how this method works, I’ve set up armbian’s u-boot and environment):

(with addr from openwrt 18.xx example)
load mmc 0:1 0x4d00000 boot.scr; source 0x4d00000
→ this just rebooted u-boot

(with addr from armbian uboot example)
load mmc 0:1 0x6d00000 boot.scr; source 0x6d00000
→ Unknown command ‘bootz’ - try ‘help’
→ Bad Linux ARM64 Image magic!

Trying fatload from sdcard:

fatload mmc 0:1 ${fdt_addr} /dtb-4.14.212-ipfire/marvell/armada-3720-espressobin.dtb
fatload mmc 0:1 $kernel_addr vmlinuz-4.14.212-ipfire
setenv bootargs $console root=/dev/mmcblk0p3 rw rootwait
booti $kernel_addr - $fdt_addr

→ boots only until a message saying to wait for /dev/mmcblk0p3 (forever)
(kernel missing the driver?)


Trying fatload from usb 2.0 port:

fatload usb 0:1 ${fdt_addr} /dtb-4.14.212-ipfire/marvell/armada-3720-espressobin.dtb
fatload usb 0:1 $kernel_addr vmlinuz-4.14.212-ipfire
setenv bootargs $console root=/dev/sda3 rw rootwait
booti $kernel_addr - $fdt_addr

→ works :blush:


But now I’d need an idea how to redo and fix the network config.

Looks like I got the espressobin network working.

1.) IPFire Network Settings

Found the basic configuration can be re-done by executing setup, but for this workaround I still had to edit /var/ipfire/ethernet/settings manually, and take care to:

  • Only specify the mv88e6085 driver in this file (and for all switch ports), to avoid that some early boot process sets up the internal mvneta network controller as an ipfire device.

  • Not configure any MAC addresses for switch ports. They should first be set up by an /etc/init.d/swconfig.user, and can then be selected afterwards using the NIC assignments in the web-config under Network -> Zone Configuration.

Example/var/ipfire/ethernet/settings:

CONFIG_TYPE=2
RED_DEV=eth1 
RED_MACADDR=
RED_DESCRIPTION='"of: mv88e6085"'
RED_DRIVER=mv88e6085
RED_DHCP_HOSTNAME=localhost
RED_DHCP_FORCE_MTU=
RED_ADDRESS=0.0.0.0
RED_NETMASK=0.0.0.0
RED_TYPE=DHCP
RED_NETADDRESS=0.0.0.0
ORANGE_DEV=eth2
ORANGE_MACADDR=
ORANGE_DESCRIPTION='"of: mv88e6085"'
ORANGE_DRIVER=mv88e6085
ORANGE_ADDRESS=192.168.2.1
GREEN_DEV=eth3 
GREEN_MACADDR=
GREEN_DESCRIPTION='"of: mv88e6085"'
GREEN_DRIVER=mv88e6085
GREEN_ADDRESS=192.168.3.1
GREEN_NETMASK=255.255.255.0
GREEN_NETADDRESS=192.168.3.0

2.) swconfig Additions

Added a custom /etc/init.d/swconfig.user, but devs could instead integrate this board’s case into /etc/init.d/swconfig.

Note that instead of using the proper MAC addresses from the u-boot environment, my swconfig.user script always falls back to generating a random address range and saving these to the ipfire config.

		exit 0
	;;

	*)
		echo "Usage: ${0} {start}"
		exit 1
	;;
esac

# End $rc_base/init.d/swconfig.user

3.) Zone Configuration

Reconfigure the NIC assignments in the web-config under Network -> Zone Configuration, and reboot.

@gandalf Could you try to reproduce?
@arne_f Would you consider merging the espressobin case into /etc/init.d/swconfig? Just by being in place on the first boot it should already make the manual config workarounds unnecessary.

Here is an edited version of the booting problems, now including workarounds:
(This forum software prevents properly adding it to the first post.)



0.) Booting


The default and recommended boot.scr loading did not work out of the box. (Armbian’s u-boot and environment installed, here.)

(Manual attempt with memory address from old openwrt 18.xx example)
load mmc 0:1 0x4d00000 boot.scr; source 0x4d00000
-> this just rebooted u-boot

(Manual attempt with address from uboot)
load mmc 0:1 ${scriptaddr} boot.scr; source ${scriptaddr}
-> Unknown command ‘bootz’ - try ‘help’
-> Bad Linux ARM64 Image magic!

So, currently booting still needs a number of workarounds, until the boot.scr itself gets fixed.

a) uEnv.txt

See these additions to put into the uEnv.txt in the image:

### Manual uEnv.txt customizations to be loaded by boot.scr (compiled version of boot.cmd). ###

## board type
fdtfile=marvell/armada-3720-espressobin.dtb


## Workaround
## boot.scr currently depends on $boot_dev to be properly set from u-boot environment,
## to be able to load from devices other than mmc.
## If not set by u-boot, it is requireded to specify it here.
##
## If the boot environment (e.g. armbian) sets $boot_interface to the
## probed device, assigning that here may also be a workaround,
## until boot.scr can properly check and work with either one.

# But this did not seem to get evaluated here.
# Had to add "setenv boot_dev $boot_interface;" to bootcmd_${target} variables.
#boot_dev=${boot_interface}


## Workaround
## for UUIDs in $root_dev (as above), as long as they do not to work if ramdisk loading fails.
## So until boot.scr can properly fall back the $root_dev when ramdisk loading fails,
## it is required to specify a $root_dev path here in uEnv.txt.
##
## Currently even for booting from mmc when $boot_dev is properly set,
## because then $root_dev isn't initialized.

root_dev=/dev/mmcblk0p3
#root_dev=/dev/sda3


## Workaround
## to avoid kernel loading crashes with boot.scr (at least on espressobin).
## Maybe due to boot.scr using $fdt_addr_r, ramdisk loading, console=$console, ...?

uenvcmd=fatload $boot_dev 0:1 $fdt_addr /dtb-${KVER}-ipfire${kernel_type}/${fdtfile}; fatload $boot_dev 0:1 $kernel_addr vmlinuz-${KVER}-ipfire${kernel_type}; setenv bootargs $console root=$root_dev rw rootwait; booti $kernel_addr - $fdt_addr;

# including this last line comment ensures the previous line gets executed

It’s a little strange why boot.scr can not boot with the commands it uses, and it only works by providing a uenvcmd in uEnv.txt. I did some tests but to no avail:

# boot.scr testing:
load mmc 0:1 ${scriptaddr} boot.scr; source ${scriptaddr}


#with the current boot.scr commands kernel boot crashes:

fatload mmc 0:1 ${fdt_addr_r} /dtb-4.14.212-ipfire/marvell/armada-3720-espressobin.dtb
fatload mmc 0:1 ${kernel_addr_r} vmlinuz-4.14.212-ipfire
fatload mmc 0:1 ${ramdisk_addr_r} uInit-4.14.212-ipfire

# this line crashes, but works after setting bootargs as below
booti ${kernel_addr_r} - ${fdt_addr_r};


# try same without using _r address?:

fatload mmc 0:1 ${fdt_addr} /dtb-4.14.212-ipfire/marvell/armada-3720-espressobin.dtb
fatload mmc 0:1 ${kernel_addr_r} vmlinuz-4.14.212-ipfire
fatload mmc 0:1 ${ramdisk_addr_r} uInit-4.14.212-ipfire (works if replaced by set bootargs)
booti ${kernel_addr_r} - ${fdt_addr}

#works:
fatload mmc 0:1 ${fdt_addr} /dtb-4.14.212-ipfire/marvell/armada-3720-espressobin.dtb
fatload mmc 0:1 $kernel_addr vmlinuz-4.14.212-ipfire
setenv bootargs $console root=/dev/mmcblk0p3 rw rootwait

# and all these alternatives are also working:
setenv bootargs root=/dev/mmcblk0p3 rw rootwait
setenv bootargs root=/dev/mmcblk0p3 rootwait
setenv bootargs rootwait
setenv bootargs console=$console root=/dev/mmcblk0p3 rw rootwait

booti $kernel_addr - $fdt_addr

b) u-boot environment

  • It needs to support loading from a FAT formatted filesystem, if not already.
    For example, in the armbian environment, prepend the boot_a_script variable to first try "load... ; " before its usual "ext4load...;"

  • And it needs to set the variable $boot_dev properly.
    For example, in the armbian environment, check the current environment and insert an additional “setenv boot_dev $boot_interface; ” to the bootcmd_${target} variables:

    printenv

    setenv bootcmd_mmc0 ‘setenv devnum 0; setenv boot_interface mmc; setenv boot_dev $boot_interface; run scan_dev_for_boot;’

    setenv bootcmd_mmc1 ‘setenv devnum 1; setenv boot_interface mmc; setenv boot_dev $boot_interface; run scan_dev_for_boot;’

    setenv bootcmd_sata ‘setenv devnum 0; scsi scan; scsi dev 0; setenv boot_interface scsi; setenv boot_dev $boot_interface; run scan_dev_for_boot;’

    setenv bootcmd_usb ‘setenv devnum 0; usb start;setenv boot_interface usb; setenv boot_dev $boot_interface; run scan_dev_for_boot;’

    saveenv

The aarch64 boot script workarounds are more general, so I wanted to adjust the topic, but this is also not possible (anymore).

First, thanks to the mods for adjusting the title and text.

Concerning the espressobin / u-boot serial console I recently I noticed a problem:

Sometimes commands on the u-boot prompt only falsely return “command not found”. Especially when using quotes in the commands like the adjustments in 0b) u-boot environment. What helped was using screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200 and using the reset button of the board.

Update: The custom swconfig.user (and a proper swconfig integration) needs to create the red0, orange0 and green0 device names to allow things like QoS to work.

Another finding:
I got command not found errors with the u-boot commands, and it seemed related to using the single quote “ticks” in the commands listed above.

In the end, it worked after connecting to the serial console not with gtkterm, but with screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200 in an xterm window.

Hey
I have an espressobin v5 card with a 16 Gb sandisk sd card
I installed ipfire-2.25.2gb-ext4.aarch64-full-core158.img.xz on the sd card with balena etcher

Here are the commands I use to boot on the sd card (without error):
load mmc 0:1 0x6d00000 boot.scr; source 0x6d00000
fatload mmc 0:1 ${fdt_addr} /dtb-4.14.198-ipfire/marvell/armada-3720-espressobin.dtb
fatload mmc 0:1 $kernel_addr vmlinuz-4.14.198-ipfire
setenv bootargs $console root=/dev/mmcblk0p3 rw rootwait
booti $kernel_addr - $fdt_addr

Boots only until a message saying to wait for /dev/mmcblk0p3 forever

What should I do please?

Please do not post the same question in multiple threads. Forum rules say not to do it. You end up with different bits of answers in multiple threads which makes searching by people in future really difficult because a complete story is not in one place.

The approach that worked for me was to look at and use the current boot files in the ipfire image, and adjust or workaround problems where necessary. (I did not get any further than you with just manual uboot commands.)

The steps are not a step-by-step guide in this thread, they were posted in the order I found out about them.

As far as I remember first would be to make the uboot update as shown on the armbian page, then prepare the customized uEnv.txt on the boot media, and then adjust the uboot config as documented above to get it to boot from a FAT filesystem with the environment variables set which are necessary for the current ipfire boot scripts to work.

Looks like the mmc device in kernel is not enabled.
It may disabled or compiled as module. If it is a module you need to load the initrd.

There is a feature disabled in you u-boot. IPFire try bootz and booti because i had this als on an other board.

this is an u-boot bug or ${kernel_addr_r} are not set to ram. Both is not IPFire related.

Done with
https://nightly.ipfire.org/next/latest/aarch64/ipfire-2.25.2gb-ext4.aarch64-full-core159.img.xz
OK !

thanks for theses tweaks…

used these files (OK) with a modification of the /proc/model cat in script swconfig.user (it will be better to use / test /proc/model/compatible !?)

boot from uboot with :

https://192.168.3.1:444 on the GREEN (LAN1) of espressobin v7 emmc :

Note: first boot works with default uefi and GRUB, but root was not found…
Then a refresh of the USB (taking full size of the ROOT available and regeneration of boot cmd or script) make it unbootable again by UEFI and standard/default autoboot (strange)… still working with the command given upper !

done, but still get an error at bootup :

we need to test espressobin with a compatible and/or more generic solution !
we can take from this :
