Mine has arrived, but I had not yet had time to jump all the whoops. It's in the pipeline, don't worry there :geek:

mine is working in arch but its been a few weeks since ive played with it. i plan on playing with it some more this week. im hoping that latest kernel includes proper pcie drivers by now which was the only issue i had prior. i got around it using a usb ethernet dongle..which imo still made it work better than it ever did on ubuntu 14.04 :lol:

im still very new to Arch linux and brand new to using ARM on linux or uboot, but after having converted all my computers and servers over to Manjaro last year from mint/ubuntu, i just couldnt resist. The tk1 was unstable at best in ubuntu. The amount of time it took me to get it working properly in 14.04 wasnt worth it considering the small number of avaiable software packages that were available. I figure if I could get it working in few hours..having zero uboot experience and little arch linux then anybody can.

my only advice is before you start get your serial cable connection tested and running and buy a nice 4 port usb3 hub along with a usb ethernet dongle..
The other thing i suggest regardless the distro is a microsoft keyboard and mouse ...avoid using logitech wireless mice or keyboards..there are workarounds and patches...but not worth dealing with during setup

I would also like to contribute support for ArchARM on the nVidia Jetson TK1. I am currently rooting around the hardware, scripts and documentation provided by nVidia. I hope to provide more information, scripts and/or documentation about this configuration soon. :geek:

Nice work on the Jetson. I really have an eye on this board.

But at the moment I am stuck with my tegra chromebook install.

Maybe you can pass me a slice of your knowledge and help me out:

I really would appreciate it.

:D

Code: Select all
$ ./gen-uboot-script.py --rw --dtb-dir /boot/dtbs
+ mkimage -A arm -O linux -T script -C none -a 0 -e 0 -n "Tegra Boot Script" -d boot.scr.tmp boot.scr

Code: Select all
$ cat boot.scr.tmp
part uuid ${devtype} ${devnum}:${rootpart} uuid
load ${devtype} ${devnum}:${rootpart} ${kernel_addr_r} /boot/zImage
if test -n "${fdtfile}"; then
    set _fdt ${fdtfile};
else
    set _fdt ${soc}-${board}${boardver}.dtb;
fi
load ${devtype} ${devnum}:${rootpart} ${fdt_addr_r} /boot/dtbs/${_fdt}
set _fdt
setenv bootargs console=ttyS0,115200n8 console=tty1 rw rootwait root=PARTUUID=${uuid} ${extra_bootargs}
bootz ${kernel_addr_r} - ${fdt_addr_r}

Will this work for a Jetson as well?

That's what I used to make my Jetson work :P I need to get it added to the official list after we sort out the dance of making everything nice and cleanly.
