POGO-B03 / B04

Postby timschuerewegen » Fri May 27, 2011 1:40 pm

I have just received a pink Pogoplug, model POGO-B03. It has 128MB of RAM and it is based on the OXNAS hardware. Is this model similar to the "V3" POGO-P21? In other words, is it safe to install Arch Linux ARM using the "Install on Pogoplug Pro" instructions? Thanks in advance.

If it is indeed the oxnas hardware, then I would have to know whether the PCI bus is present.

If it is not, then it would need the same kernel as the P21, which I need to roll into the installer/rootfs as it is not present at this time.

Can you give me 'cat /proc/cpuinfo' and attempt to figure out if it has the PCI bus present ?

Do I have to look at the board for that or can I do it by looking at a kernel dump/image with a hex-editor?

Oh, thats an oxnas alright. Eep.

try an 'lspci', maybe a 'modprobe -l'

Today I have received a pink "POGO-B03" device too. This device has 128M of memory and a dual core armv6 compatible cpu. I am very interested to learn if would be possible to install Arch Linux ARM on this device.

The busybox lspci doesn't have the -t option, I uploaded the regular gnu version of lspci and ran it:

/tmp # ./lspci -t
-[0000:00]-

/tmp # ls -al /proc/bus/pci/
dr-xr-xr-x 2 root root 0 May 27 17:03 .
dr-xr-xr-x 5 root root 0 Jan 1 1970 ..
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 0 May 27 17:03 devices
/sbin # ./lsmod

gmac 41272 0 - Live 0xbf004000
mii 6176 1 gmac, Live 0xbf000000

/ # uname -a
Linux Pogoplug 2.6.31.6_SMP_820 #96 SMP Tue Feb 8 12:08:54 PST 2011 armv6l GNU/Linux

I hope this helps.

Well, from the looks of it, it's a P21 board in a pink case http://imgur.com/Zo5pX

I not sure if the PCI bus is there at all, but probably not.

The answer is yes, but I need to update the install script...

Is my assumption that this device needs a different kernel without pci compiled in it correct? If yes, perhaps the ceboardver value from the blparam command could be useful in your install script, for the POGO-B03 this value is:

ceboardver=PPV3

Let me know if you need more information about this device. Your work is really appreciated!
