Revision as of 05:25, 30 March 2009

Random hacking notes for getting Fedora 10 to kinda work with the BeagleBoard. ;)


and use one of my CC* images.. http://www.rcn-ee.com/deb/kernel/

Note; this can be improved by patching rpm directly and rebuilding, however just to get things running for the moment it is fine.

Recommended Tools to have Downloaded before First boot

dhclient = http://ftp.linux.org.uk/pub/linux/arm/fedora/pub/fedora/linux/releases/10/Everything/arm/os/Packages/dhclient-4.0.0-30.fc10.armv5tel.rpm

wget = http://ftp.linux.org.uk/pub/linux/arm/fedora/pub/fedora/linux/releases/10/Everything/arm/os/Packages/wget-1.11.4-1.fc10.armv5tel.rpm

nano = http://rcn-ee.homeip.net:81/dl/fedora/fc10.0/RPMS/armv7l/nano-2.0.6-4.fc10.armv7l.rpm


50Mb Fat32 Partition (should be the first partition, use gparted)

cd /media/disk/
wget http://www.rcn-ee.com/deb/kernel/CC-v2.6.28-79d042a-oer14
mv CC-v2.6.28-79d042a-oer14 uImage

mmc card

uboot parameters:

setenv bootcmd 'mmcinit; fatload mmc 0:1 0x80300000 uImage; bootm 0x80300000'
setenv bootargs 'console=ttyS2,115200n8 console=tty0 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootdelay=2 rootfstype=ext3 ro omap-dss.def_disp=lcd omapfb.video_mode=1280x720MR-24@60'

external usb 2.0 drive (/dev/sda1)

uboot parameters:

setenv bootcmd 'mmcinit; fatload mmc 0:1 0x80300000 uImage; bootm 0x80300000'
setenv bootargs 'console=ttyS2,115200n8 console=tty0 root=/dev/sda1 rootdelay=10 rootfstype=ext3 ro omap-dss.def_disp=lcd omapfb.video_mode=1280x720MR-24@60'

Note: Useful for saving your mmc cards

Building packages

in most cases build your packages for armv5... (not everything works when built as armv7l)

rpmbuild -ba --target armv5tel dejagnu.spec


Note; this is just my first pass at rebuilding all rpm's, so things are bound to break, and they will, and they have. So only dive in head first if you don't mind.

Add to fedora.repo

name=Fedora armv7l

gpgkey: http://rcn-ee.homeip.net:81/dl/fedora/fc10.0/RPM-GPG-KEY-rcn-ee.com
