uClinux distribution for MicroBlaze. ==================================== Initially configured for Meyer Sound D-Mitri I/O and DGPIO modules. Kernel 2.6.30 (modifications by Petalogix and Meyer Sound). uClibc 0.9.30.1 (modifications by Meyer Sound). Directory structure: ==================== The build environment should contain the following directories: mb_gnu (from mb-gcc4-msli repository) is a gcc4 toolchain (from git.xilinx.com, patched to compile on modern Linux distributions). microblaze-toolchain-sources (from mb-gcc3-msli repository) is a gcc3 toolchain (from Petalogix sources, patched to compile on modern Linux distributions). * mbbl-mkbootimage (from mbbl repository) is the boot image maker. * dtc is Jon Loeliger's device tree compiler (same as the one supplied with the kernel). * mcsbin is a binary <-> MCS converter similar to Xilinx promgen. * uClinux-dist is current uClinux, except: 1. uClinux-dist/uClibc is updated to uClibc 0.9.30.1 with Microblaze support (current uClibc release with local patches), 2. uClinux-dist/linux-2.6.x is based on git://developer.petalogix.com/linux-2.6-microblaze.git + local patches, 3. build procedure is updated to accommodate those changes and by default produce a kernel + directory tree for Meyer Sound D-Mitri I/O and DGPIO modules. * local contains the device tree and script for building the image from compiled kernel and filesystem tree. buildtools.sh is a script that builds all of the above. This initial version builds a non-MMU kernel and userspace. Build procedure: ================ To build the toolchain: ./buildtools.sh To add the compilers' directories to the path: . prepare.sh To build the kernel and filesystem tree: cd uClinux-dist make config make To prepare the boot image: cd ../local ./makeimage.sh Installation procedure: ======================= To load Linux on D-Mitri: NEW FLASH INSTALLATION PROCEDURE: Build a bitstream and software in XPS, initialize BRAM in bitstream with mbbl binary (you may have to change the paths in the files, currently /home/alexb is still hardcoded in some of them). Use iMPACT to flash two MCS files -- download.mcs generated by Xilinx tools (promgen or interactive prom file formatter in iMPACT) from download.bit bitstream file, and bootimage.mcs located in "local" directory, generated by Linux image build procedure. Use a terminal connected to the serial port (115200, 8N1) to monitor the boot progress and log in at the console. FLASH UPDATE PROCEDURE: Convert download.mcs file into raw binary: ../mcsbin/mcsbin -b -y download.mcs download.bin Upload bootimage.bin and download.bin to /tmp using ftp or lrz (zmodem). On FPGA (over telnet or serial console) run: flashw -u -f /tmp/download.bin /dev/mtd0 flashw -u -o 3145728 -f /tmp/bootimage.bin /dev/mtd0 Power-cycle the device. OLD/DEBUGGING PROCEDURE: Build a bitstream and software in XPS, initialize BRAM in bitstream with mbbl binary (you may have to change the paths in the files, currently /home/alexb is still hardcoded in some of them). Program flash or FPGA with the bitstream, have a terminal connected to the serial port (115200, 8N1), confirm that mbbl started and given the error message about missing kernel or device tree. If mbbl is loading an old kernel that is already in flash, press Ctrl-C twice while it's loading. Run XMD, wait for error message, stop the processor, record the stop address, load: local/dt.dtb at 0x90800000 continue from the stop address, after another error message stop the processor, record the stop address, load: uClinux-dist/linux-2.6.x/arch/microblaze/boot/linux.bin at 0x90000000 local/romfs.bin.gz at 0x97c00000 Continue from the stop address. Linux will boot from those images. Once Linux is booted, log in at the serial console, upload bootimage.bin to /tmp using ftp or lrz (zmodem). On FPGA (over telnet or serial console) run: flashw -u -o 3145728 -f /tmp/bootimage.bin /dev/mtd0 Reset and re-program FPGA or power-cycle the device (if FPGA bitstream is already programmed in flash) -- Linux will boot from the images in flash.
