This page is about running a (ARM EABI) [http://www.debian.org/ Debian] distribution at [[BeagleBoard]]. BeagleBoard will boot the (ARM EABI) Debian distribution from [[BeagleBoard#MMC.2FSD_boot|SD card]]. Debian's NetInstall will be used to install Debian onto your Beagle.

Note: Debian armel deb's are compiled for armv4t, this allows debian to support a larger number of arm devices with a single port, at only the sacrifice of speed.

The following Gstreamer elements will be installed:
  
Requirements: 2.6-stable from launchpad or 2.6.38+ deb's from rcn-ee.net. (the Demo Images hosted on rcn-ee.net meet this requirement)

If you installed this image via the demo images or netinstall, the gst-dsp build script is installed:
  
By default Debian will try* to use the FBDEV video driver, however for the beagleboard we can take advantage of a more software optimized driver (still not using the sgx video hardware) using the NEON extensions of the Cortex-A8 core.
+
Update arm tools directory to the latest:
 +
ubuntu@arm:~$ cd /boot/uboot/tools/
 +
ubuntu@arm:/boot/uboot/tools$ sudo ./update.sh
  
Lenny might need this xorg.conf, but it's best to use omapfb later in this guide..

Revision as of 15:22, 5 May 2013

This page is about running a (ARM EABI) Debian distribution at BeagleBoard. BeagleBoard will boot the (ARM EABI) Debian distribution from SD card. Debian's NetInstall will be used to install Debian onto your Beagle.

Help

If you need any help:

  • When asking for help, please provide some debugging information:
    • U-Boot Version installed on board
    • Kernel Version: uname -a
    • pastebin dmesg
      • Copy from serial port or use "dmesg | pastebinit" (sudo apt-get install pastebinit)

Recommended Beagle Software

Mainline U-Boot:

  • All old Ax, Bx, Cx and Dx boards are required to upgrade to at least these U-Boot versions.
  • XM Boards have no NAND, so MLO/u-boot.img is always required on the first partition
  • Directions: Upgrade X-loader and U-Boot

Debian NetInstall

Scripts:

git clone git://github.com/RobertCNelson/netinstall.git
cd netinstall

Device Options:

BeagleBoard --uboot beagle_cx
BeagleBoard xM --uboot beagle_xm
BeagleBone (serial) --uboot bone-serial
BeagleBone (video via cape) --uboot bone-video
BeagleBone Black --dtb am335x-boneblack
PandaBoard --uboot panda
PandaBoard ES  --uboot panda_es

You will need a 1GB SD card or greater.

Standard System : ~455MB
+ Desktop environment (GNOME) : ~2.9GB

Debian Wheezy

Quick Install script for "board"

sudo ./mk_mmc.sh --mmc /dev/sdX --uboot "board" --distro wheezy-armhf

So For the BeagleBoard xM:

sudo ./mk_mmc.sh --mmc /dev/sdX --uboot beagle_xm --distro wheezy-armhf
  • Options:
    • --firmware : installs firmware
    • --serial-mode : debian-installer uses Serial Port

Demo Image

Debian Wheezy snapshot

Default username/password:

  • username: debian
  • password: temppwd

Default root user/password

  • user: root
  • password: root

Image Updated:

  • 2013-04-26
    • Beagle/Panda/Panda ES: v3.7.10-x10 kernel
    • BeagleBone: v3.2.42-psp27 kernel
    • BeagleBone/BeagleBone Black: v3.8.8-bone14 kernel (--uboot bone_dtb)
  • 2013-03-28:
    • Beagle/Panda/Panda ES: v3.7.10-x10 kernel
    • Bone: v3.2.33-psp26 kernel (--uboot bone_dtb = v3.8.4-bone9)
  • 2013-02-16:
    • Beagle/Panda/Panda ES: v3.7.8-x8 kernel
    • Bone: v3.2.33-psp26 kernel (--uboot bone_dtb = v3.8-rc7-bone4)

Services Active:

Note: Depending on your internal network these may work out the box
Apache, Port 80: http://arm/
SSH, Port 22: ssh ubuntu@arm
Getty, Serial Port

Get prebuilt image:

wget http://rcn-ee.net/deb/rootfs/wheezy/debian-wheezy-console-armhf-2013-04-26.tar.xz

Verify Image with:

md5sum debian-wheezy-console-armhf-2013-04-26.tar.xz
8a1c4ff53f3b2a42419ee1c7c1f47e40  debian-wheezy-console-armhf-2013-04-26.tar.xz

Unpack Image:

tar xJf debian-wheezy-console-armhf-2013-04-26.tar.xz
cd debian-wheezy-console-armhf-2013-04-26

Install Image:

Quick Install script for "board"

sudo ./setup_sdcard.sh --mmc /dev/sdX --uboot "board"

"board" options:

  • BeagleBoard Ax/Bx - beagle_bx
  • BeagleBoard Cx/Dx - beagle_cx
  • BeagleBoard xM - beagle_xm
  • BeagleBone Ax - bone
  • BeagleBone/Black - bone_dtb
  • PandaBoard Ax - panda
  • PandaBoard ES - panda_es

So For the BeagleBoard xM:

sudo ./setup_sdcard.sh --mmc /dev/sdX --uboot beagle_xm
  • Additional Options
    • --rootfs <ext4 default>
    • --swap_file <swap file size in MB's>
    • --addon pico <ti pico projector>
    • --svideo-ntsc <use ntsc over dvi for video)
    • --svideo-pal <use pal over dvi for video)

Debian Configuration

Serial Ports

Wheezy

edit /etc/inittab and add:

T0:23:respawn:/sbin/getty -L ttyO2 115200 vt102

SGX Video Acceleration

SGX armel/armhf v3.4.x+

  • Note: This is a still a work in progress, but so far all the basic sgx demos seem to work on my Beagle xM C... Thanks to TI for the special armhf binaries!!! --RobertCNelson 19:48, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Test with: Precise/12.04 armhf demo image with v3.4.5-x1, desktop was lxde via: "sudo apt-get install lxde lxde-core lxde-icon-theme"

Re-Build Kernel and SGX Kernel Modules

git clone git://github.com/RobertCNelson/stable-kernel.git
cd stable-kernel
git checkout origin/v3.7.x -b tmp
./build_kernel.sh (and then follow the directions as the script runs...)

Build kernel

./build_kernel.sh

Build SGX modules

./sgx_build_modules.sh

Insert SD card, make sure to modify MMC in system.sh

./tools/install_image.sh

Place SD card into the device and boot...

cd /opt/sgx
sudo tar xf GFX_4.0*_libs.tar.gz
sudo ./install-sgx.sh 

Reboot, check modules (lsmod):

Module                  Size  Used by

SGX Legacy armel only upto v3.2.x

NOTE: this only works on BeagleBoard hardware, BeagleBone stuff is in development..

Requirements: stable-kernel (the Demo Images hosted on rcn-ee.net meet this requirement)

Note: Due to a bug (seems to only effect older Beagle Bx/Cx boards, use v3.0.8-x3 based kernels)

DSP

gst-dsp

The following Gstreamer elements will be installed:

 $ gst-inspect | grep dsp
 dvdspu:  dvdspu: Sub-picture Overlay
 dsp:  dspdummy: DSP dummy element
 dsp:  dspvdec: DSP video decoder
 dsp:  dspadec: DSP audio decoder
 dsp:  dsph263enc: DSP video encoder
 dsp:  dspmp4venc: DSP MPEG-4 video encoder
 dsp:  dspjpegenc: DSP video encoder
 dsp:  dsph264enc: DSP video encoder
 dsp:  dspvpp: DSP VPP filter
 dsp:  dspipp: DSP IPP

Please note that h264 encoder (dsph264enc) will not work because of missing h264venc_sn.dll64P DSP part. According to this message, it is not available due to a licensing restriction.

Requirements: Kernel built with: "CONFIG_TIDSPBRIDGE=m", for reference, here is what rcn-ee.net's image/deb's are configured for:

ubuntu@arm:~$ zcat /proc/config.gz | grep TIDSP
CONFIG_TIDSPBRIDGE=m
CONFIG_TIDSPBRIDGE_MEMPOOL_SIZE=0x600000
CONFIG_TIDSPBRIDGE_RECOVERY=y
# CONFIG_TIDSPBRIDGE_CACHE_LINE_CHECK is not set
# CONFIG_TIDSPBRIDGE_NTFY_PWRERR is not set
# CONFIG_TIDSPBRIDGE_BACKTRACE is not set

On the xM: if 3.2.x is too jerky, try 3.4.x and use the create_dsp_package.sh script, as the module changed..

Download the latest version of the "create_dsp_package.sh" script

wget https://raw.github.com/RobertCNelson/tools/master/x86/ti_omap/create_dsp_package.sh

Make script executable

chmod a+x ./create_dsp_package.sh

Package script:

./create_dsp_package.sh

Copy DSP_Install_libs.tar.gz to Beagle

Setup network...

Extract:

ubuntu@arm:~$ tar xf DSP_Install_libs.tar.gz

Install:

ubuntu@arm:~$ ./install-DSP.sh

Building gst-dsp stuff:

If you installed this image via the demo images or netinstall, the gst-dsp build script is installed:

Update arm tools directory to the latest:

ubuntu@arm:~$ cd /boot/uboot/tools/
ubuntu@arm:/boot/uboot/tools$ sudo ./update.sh

Otherwise, install via git:

git clone git://github.com/RobertCNelson/tools.git

Change to the pkgs directory

ubuntu@arm:~$ cd /boot/uboot/tools/pkgs
(or if just cloned)
ubuntu@arm:~$ cd ~/tools/pkgs

Build gst-dsp stuff..

./ti-tidspbridge.sh

Start dspbridge (or just reboot)

sudo /etc/init.d/dsp_init start

Test dspbridge

sudo dsp-test

Playbin:

sudo gst-launch playbin2 uri=file://(file)

Example: (using http://www.bigbuckbunny.org/index.php/download/ 854x480 mp4 )

Note: it seems broken in Ubuntu precise armhf...
sudo gst-launch playbin2 uri=file:///home/USER/big_buck_bunny_480p_surround-fix.avi
