Get rid of the conflicting files, they're obviously not tracked by pacman and don't belong there.
Arch Linux ARM exists and continues to grow through community support, please donate today!

Fyi. It will be out to the GitHub about 3 weeks from now.

I take my hat off for everyone that worked to make this mainline uboot for older kirkwood devices.
I've got a couple of questions:
- is there a command that we can run that resets the environment variables to defaults in case we screw up?
- is there a place where we can find configuration examples? For instance, I used to have something similar to this:
Code: Select all
fw_setenv serverip 192.168.1.2
fw_setenv ipaddr 192.168.1.100
fw_setenv if_netconsole 'ping $serverip'
fw_setenv start_netconsole 'setenv ncip $serverip; setenv bootdelay 10; setenv stdin nc; setenv stdout nc; setenv stderr nc; version;'
fw_setenv preboot 'run if_netconsole start_netconsole'

This way I could remotely check the startup of my dockstars through nc/netcat.
Can I still use the above configuration with the new mainline uboot?
Thanks :)

Newbie question:

Will this help me with setting up multiple drives?

The way I read it might be what I am looking for on my new Pogo E02.

Thanks much for everyone's hard work here!

PogoV4 source is available now at GitHub (thanks davygravy and ebbes for most of the effort). The binary is available at doozan U-Boot forum.

FYI - http://blog.qnology.com/2014/07/hacking ... obile.html

If you want to try it out. The tutorial is based on a new PPV4, but the commands should work under ALARM.

Adding the Doozan recovery to mainline seems straightforward enough (but does it _have_ to plow mtd1/mtd2, and will that happen on every update?), but any chance of getting SNTP support added to mainline? It's a major boon when available - and pretty much the only thing that brought me back from mainline to bodhi's custom uBoot.
