4 Replies and 3705 Views VM build failed to boot up  3705  4 Started by  minchun liu I installed Virtual Machine 2.3 on a Win7 PC. I manually created a folder in rootfs/myFolder and added my application files to it which is about 7MB. The build was fine. The folder was included in the file rootfs.ext2.gz.uboot. But I got Kernel Panic during boot-up, see the attached log. Could anyone tell me how to change the size of rm0 If I remove all the files in myFolder and only keep a file with a few KBytes, it can boot up successfully. Also the same Kernel Panic happens on VM 2.2. ...

I pushed a fix to U-Boot which became part of the 2016.09 release which was publised on 12 September 2016.  I would suggest anyone who has started experimenting with the Beta BSP to upgrade the U-Boot release to 2016.09 if they are experiencing this issue.   adam

0 Replies and 1734 Views Enable WiFi in Mainstream Linux (Torpedo Wireless)  1734  0 Started by  Adam Ford When building the kernel, make sure the following is enabled in the menuconfig: Networking Support ---> Wireless ---> nl80211 testmode command  If not, the WiFi may not scan. From there, you'll need to copy the NVS file from the 3.0.x kernel BSP. The stock BSP has 3 NVS files.  That driver have been modified to identify the chip type and load the corresponding driver.  Since the mainline kernel does not have this feature, you'll have to manually copy the nvs file.   By ...

I could not find a complete patch-set for hidden SSID feature. Thus, I merged related codes from vanilla Linux manually. Unfortunately, it did not work. Does anybody have an idea about that Any help is appreciated.

13 Replies and 2827 Views UART with enabled DMA  2827  13 Started by  Deleted User Hello, We switched to BSP-2.4-4, but now we have issues with serial UARTs. We are using uart at ttyO2 with hw flow ctrl (cts/rts) enabled to communicate with some chip at 3Mbps (actual throughput on ttyO2 during the streaming is around 1.3Mbps).
