0 Replies and 1881 Views Yet another LOLO YAFFS vs Linux question  1881  0 Started by  Deleted User I'm developing a Linux based product with the i.MX31 SOM. I'm storing the kernel in a LOLO YAFFS partition. At some point I'd like the capability of doing in-field upgrades of the kernel in that YAFFS partition. The discussion in http&58;//tdg&46;logicpd&46;com/viewtopic&46;phpf=29&t=1108 pretty much covers my problem. A quick summary of that thread is that LOLO uses an ancient version of YAFFS with some LogicPD patches that Linux doesn't recognize. Last time around there really ...

5 Replies and 2038 Views Linux support status...  2038  5 Started by  tdc1 Hi, What is the current status of the Linux support for iMX31Lite kit I see that in the latest official kernel tree (2.6.29) the support for the liteKit was added, but as far as I can see, the code is incomplete and doesn't boot the platform. I saw older posts on this subject about Linux 2.6.19, Freescale ADS BSP and LTIB. Is this still the only way to go to boot Linux on this board Thanks, tdc

2 Replies and 1958 Views Available memory  1958  2 Started by  magene I'm writing a WinCE 5.0 Visual Studio 2005 C/C application that makes use of the CSPI port, GPIO and needs as much RAM for data storage as I can get. After a lot of fumbling around I've got the CSPI port and the GPIO working. Unfortunately, I'm stuck on what I thought would be the easy part. I can't dimension more than about 12,000 unsigned integers. Seems like the memory is there. When I go to Settings->Control Panel->System->Memory, I have 29436KB of Storage Memory and 64768KB ...

It sees the compact flash card as "Storage Card" in the OS. However, when reading from the compactflash card the system hangs and it takes about 24 seconds to read a megabyte off th...

12 Replies and 2621 Views Port of LTIB R13 for the PDK (Linux 2.6.24) to MX31 Litekit  2621  12 Started by  Deleted User Here is a port of Freescale's PDK BSP R13 to the litekit. The PDK also contains support for the MX31 ADS, and it is this code that forms the basis for the Litekit port. Note: This kernel works with Lolo v2.3.5p2 & U-boot, but not with Lolo v2.4.0. I am sure that it is simply a control register bit that has been set. The problem manifests itself as the MCU being unable to communicate with the PMIC over the SPI bus. If anybody is able to discover the problem, I'll be glad to add a quick f...
