My smartbook no longer boots. I have tried without success (details below) to boot from SD by imaging an SD card per efikamx.info with
Code:
unxz -cd maverick-20111010.img.xz | dd of=/dev/mmcblk0
on another Linux machine. I am out of ideas and hope someone can help.

With DIPs at 1110 (normal), I get the following, in order:
  • power LED illumination until power-off
    6 pulses on the capslock LED (♩𝄽♩𝄽♩𝄽𝄾♪♩♩)
    screen backlight illumination until power-off
    a quick flutter of the green HDD/mail LED
    HDD/mail LED illumination until power-off
These symptoms are similar to those described in this thread, but in my case they happen at every boot attempt. The system remains in this state (power, HDD/mail LEDs and backlight illuminated, screen blank black) until I power it down by pressing and holding the power button for several seconds. Symptoms are the same with and without SD card inserted.

With DIPs at 0001 (SD boot?), I get a .5Hz square wave on the power LED and no other signs of life. Pressing and holding the power button stops the blinking. Symptoms are the same with and without SD card inserted.

After attempting to boot with DIPs 1110, no SD, and no DC power (unsuccessful), I reinserted the DC power and noted that the power LED changed to orange (ostensibly to indicate charging).

I recall before this problem became completely deterministic that I experienced two or three boot failures with similar symptoms (green HDD/mail LED on, screen illuminated but blank). Rebooting cleared the problem, and IIRC in one instance so did letting the machine sit in this state for many (~12?) hours. I have tried letting it sit again and never replicated that success. At the time I concluded that my filesystem was trashed and fsck was going nuts (hence the HDD light) before splash initialization, but the machine has not booted successfully since I arrived at that conclusion so I have not had a chance to verify by running fsck manually.

Hoping to diagnose and resolve the problem from a serial console, I purchased a debug board, but I mistakenly purchased the incompatible smarttop board and the smartbook version is not available anywhere AFAICT.

Based on the capslock LED behavior with DIPs 1110, I believe my u-boot to up-to-date and functional. My guess is that the kernel from the PATA loads but crashes or hangs during boot before the video driver initializes or the fbsplash draws. I don't know why I'm unable to boot from SD, but here's a peek at the SD I'm using:
Code:
tycho ~ # fdisk -l /dev/sdc

Disk /dev/sdc: 16.0 GB, 16021192704 bytes
64 heads, 32 sectors/track, 15279 cylinders, total 31291392 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00082a5d

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdc1 7812 250000 121094+ 83 Linux
/dev/sdc2 250001 3261718 1505859 83 Linux
Can anyone recommend appropriate next steps for diagnostics, troubleshooting, or outright recovery? I am quite capable with both Linux and u-boot but can't get traction without a working interface to one or the other...

Ultimately, I would really love to have a working serial console. Is there any chance Genesi/anyone can provide pinouts for both debug ports so I can wire my smartbook to my smarttop debug board? I gather the boards are functionally the same except for the connector.

Incidentally, I have been very pleased with other embedded platforms that offer an FT232 wired to an exposed mini-USB B debug port =).

Thanks!

Hi.

Can you boot from the Maverick installer SD card in normal mode?

Regarding the pin-out of the debug board, please send me an email (johan <dot> dams <at> genesi-usa.com)


Johan.

Hi Johan and thanks for your reply.

I have attempted to boot the Maverick installer by dding the unxz'd image onto a sufficiently big SD card (see above) and booting the smartbook with DIPs at 1110 with the SD inserted. I observed the same symptoms described above: backlight on, screen black, HDD/mail LED solid green.

I believe that to be the correct procedure for booting the Maverick SD installer in normal mode, and it did not work.

I have mailed you about the debug board pinouts.

Thanks!

That's the correct procedure. Can you try the following: remove the battery so it's only powered by the adapter. Put in the Maverick installer SD card and try booting (normal mode, so factory DIP settings). Then, if you still get a solid green LED, power off, try again. Repeat 4 or 5 times and see if it boots during one of these attempts.


Johan.

With no battery inserted, one boot produced identical symptoms, and four subsequent boots differed only in that the green LED was off (still no screen image). My guess is that removing the battery altered the timing characteristics enough in the latter cases that the same kernel panic happened with no IOps in-flight to PATA, but that's just speculation. If the bootloader has caught the SD and tried to boot from it, there should furthermore be very little PATA activity during boot.

I expect to be able to hack up a serial console this evening based on the details you mailed me (thanks!). I will post again after work with results.

I was able to wire a functional serial console using an FT232 breakout board. Here is what I learned:

My system properly detects and boots off SD when an appropriate one is inserted, but the kernel hangs before any screen output as with PATA. My effort to diagnose PATA boot follows.

At this point the kernel is hung, but the following is displayed on the SB screen:
Code:

/dev/sda1: recovering journal
/dev/sda1: clean, 23/31360 files, 24397/124968 blocks (check after next mount)
My next step was to interrupt boot with init=/bin/bash in bootargs. The system booted and I got a live bash prompt on ttymxc0! Few modules are loaded at this stage of boot since udev is not running, and so I modprobed ehci-hcd to get USB for network and perhaps additional serial ports:
Code:
root@(none):/# modprobe ehci-hcd
[ 429.237151] usbcore: registered new interface driver usbfs
[ 429.242778] usbcore: registered new interface driver hub

[ 429.454192] hub 1-0:1.0: USB hub found
[ 429.458012] hub 1-0:1.0: 1 port detected
At this point the system was frozen again. I tried repeating this experiment with external USB devices unplugged and it seems quite deterministic. I blacklisted the ehci-hcd module and now PATA boots successfully without any intervention on the serial console, but of course I can't use any USB devices.

If you have any suggestions for further debugging/troubleshooting this I'm all ears, but I suspect it to be either a hardware problem on my particular system or a particularly nasty manifestation of some underlying kernel driver problem (SDMA?). To that end, if my system with its deterministic crash can be of any use to your debugging efforts, I would be more than happy to provide information and testing as I am able.

Thanks again for your time and attention =).

Hi suertreus, we will replace this unit if it cannot be fixed. Please send it back to us.

Best regards,
