Unable to login when switching from sysvinit to systemd

I'm exploring some of the gumstix features just to learn a bit more about it. It looks like E-cons is using sysvinit for their build instead of systemd - psplash has the proper loading sequence. I also saw some recommendations on forums around using sysvinit over systemd. So I figured I would give it a shot and see what I can learn.

I changed my local.conf to have the following:

PREFERRED_PROVIDER_udev = "udev" DISTRO_FEATURES_append = " sysvinit pam" VIRTUAL-RUNTIME_init_manager = "sysvinit" I did the bitbake on the image and it built everything just fine.

The gumstix booted up to the login prompt but when I go to login with the root user, it fails to log in:
Poky (Yocto Project Reference Distro) 1.5.1 overo /dev/ttyO2 overo login: root Password: Module is unknown Poky (Yocto Project Reference Distro) 1.5.1 overo /dev/ttyO2 overo login: root Password: Last login: Sat May 10 13:24:20 Poky (Yocto Project Reference Distro) 1.5.1 overo /dev/ttyO2 overo login: root Password: Last login: Sat May 10 13:24:59 Poky (Yocto Project Reference Distro) 1.5.1 overo /dev/ttyO2 overo login: Attached is the bootup sequence output - failed_login.log

Any pointers would be helpful.
Thanks!

[ RTL8187 driver setup on Gumstix Overo ]

Hi all,

I've been trying get the rtl8187 driver working on my Gumstix Overo (3.5.7 kernel) image so that I can forgo the existing Marvell's wifi module.

I saw that rtl8187 driver's kernel module is already built along with the poky distribution and hence I edited the /etc/modules-load.d to have the rtl8187 loaded on boot.

When I connected the router (Alfa AWUS036H) directly to the Tobi board, I saw the kernel messages related to the rtl8187's properties and that its wireless switch is on.

But I haven't been able to see the router coming up physically (its small yellow-colored LED getting lit up) as it does when it is attached to the Ubuntu's kernel. The main differences that I observed were that the usb device was using xhci_hcd on Ubuntu while it was ehci-omap here, and the rate control algorithm being 'minstrel_ht' (on Ubuntu) and 'pid' here.  In short, I assume that the rtl8187 module is running fine.

I would like to know whether I'm missing anything here as the router has not opened up an interface on gumstix? Is it because we have to disable the libertas_sdio in order for the gumstix to recognize/invoke the Alfa router, or is it because I'm not connecting the router using a powered usb hub? Also I'd like to mention that connecting it through a usb hub threw errors such as:
khubd timed out on ep0in len=0/64

Thank you!


 



Thinking that



regards,
Ashish

Tobi expansion board USB not working

Hi,

We just bought Overo Fire COM with Tobi expansion board. I am using Flash default image that came with overo. Everything works fine except USB host port. I can't even hook up keyboard or mouse. I also tried to use USB hub but nothing seems to be working. I looked online and see lot of people have the same issue with the tobi expansion board but couldn't find the solution related to this issue.

Is it possible that we got a bad Tobi board? Or Is something I need to do to turn the USB on?

Regards,
ABM

[Yocto over Overo/Beagleboard] "screen" utility not, working as expected

Hi,

I am using Yocto dylan 9.0.2 code to generate Ubuntu kernel and images 
for Overo/Beagleboard. Everything is working fine except the utility 
"screen" that I am using to ssh to board, running an application and 
logout.
This is what it is used for, but unfortunately it is not working that 
way. The application also exits once I logout from the board/terminate 
the ssh session.

I have tried different arguments of screen, but no use.
Can anyone please suggest some better ways of doing this.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers
Gaurav

Problems running Yocto image with Geppetto's 3-port USB Hub

Hello,
I have a Geppetto board with an (integrated) 3-port USB Hub. It works fine
with the default Linux shipped with the Overo COM (some older Angstrom with
kernel 2.6), however when I run the latest Yocto/Poky image (kernel 3.5.7) I
don't see any devices connected to any of the three ports. (I built a clean
Yocto image without any custom extensions.)

Do you have any hints what could be the root cause? Could the Yocto image
for Overo be missing some firmware / configuration for the Geppetto's 3-port
Hub?

Thanks a lot,
Petr

DuoVeroâ„¢ Zephyr Overheating

I am using a DuoVero Zephyr COM with wifi. I module would turn off if I try
to transfer a 10MB file over WIFI. I think it might be due to overheating.
The blue heatsink that came with the duovero is bigger than the POP chip
(extends into the wifi metal enclosure). 

Is the heatsink required? If not then I must be missing some throttling
module. If yes, then how are people putting the heatsink on when it is
bigger than the chip itself (can't get 100% of surface to be in contact with
heatsink).

Thanks

Getting started

Hi all,

I'm trying to get started with an overo with a summit board.  My end goal is
to get SPI working, and most internet resources I've looked at tell me I
need to patch the kernel somehow.  My problems is, I have no idea what I
even need to do and get set up before I can get started.  I'm not too
familiar with linux, bitbake, openembedded etc.  Can anyone point me in the
right direction?  I'm happy to just get a list of tutorials and get
cracking, but like I said I'm not even sure what I'm supposed to crack :-P

I can boot the gumstix and navigate its file systems, and even compile code. 
I can't currently connect to the internet (working on it...).  I have a
Debian box lying around that will probably become my gumstix-to-computer
interfacing box, but what to install on it and why I do not know.

Does anyone have any good resources?

Mike

What are the gotchas when updating Linaro kernels?

I have been using the Gumstix Linaro 3.5 image from this page for about 
a year on my AirStorm:
http://gumstix.org/download-prebuilt-images.html
https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/linaro/GumstixLinaroROS_20130204_2.gz

I need some newer kernel functionality, so I went to Linaro and got 
their 3.14 kernel source:
http://releases.linaro.org/14.04/components/kernel/linux-linaro/

I mapped the .config options as well as I could from the original 3.5 to 
the new 3.14, built, installed modules on the SD card root filesystem, 
put my uImage in the SD card boot partition, and made a new uInitrd with 
the new modules.  I booted the system a few times, with some success.  
The boot failure I am getting is General Failure to mount filesystems, 
which puts me in a single user shell with readonly filesystems.  In that 
shell, uname -r is my new 3.14.0+. So I got pretty far.  But something 
happens when my new kernel tries to mount the old filesystems.

My question for the group is this:

Is there likely to be a conflict between my 3.14 kernel and the 3.5 
filesystem image, or am I safe in assuming I built things wrong and work 
on that?  I think the problem is probably in my build, but don't want to 
obsess over that if somebody can tell me that it's bad to change the 
kernel that much (3.5 to 3.14) without also changing X in the filesystem.

Thanks,
Larry

Does anyone know which meta package has python-scipy? I was able to bitbake
python-numpy but it can't seem to find scipy recipes.
