Qemu related questions

Has anyone gotten OpenBSD armv7 (any version, but current aka 5.5 most
likely) running as a guest inside qemu, and if so on what qemu host
(OS name and version, plus version of qemu, from package or
self-compiled, etc.?) And of course with what qemu parameters.

I've tried:
QEMU emulator version 1.7.91 (Debian 2.0.0~rc1+dfsg-0ubuntu3),
Copyright (c) 2003-2008 Fabrice Bellard from the repositories on
Ubuntu 14.04 as a host.

I used qemu parameters like those shown here:
https://romanrm.net/a10/qemu

Substituting bsd.rd.SUNXI or bsd.rd.SUNXI.umg for kernel

using miniroot-sunxi-55.fs with the -sd (or -pflash) switch
-drive if=sd,cache=unsafe,file=...

and redirecting serial to a tcp port, so I can observe the serial
console on the host
"-nographic -serial tcp::4000,server"

With absolutely no luck. I might be missing something, or maybe it
can't work except with a different host or qemu version (or at all?).
Pointers appreciated.

Broken SHA256 signature file

Hi all,

    I tried to verify the SHA256 sums at 
http://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/snapshots/armv7/SHA256 with the 
related .sig file, but it didn't work:

$ gpg --verify SHA256.sig SHA256
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
gpg: the signature could not be verified.
Please remember that the signature file (.sig or .asc)
should be the first file given on the command line.

    Looking at 
http://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/snapshots/armv7/SHA256.sig, I see:

untrusted comment: signature from openbsd 5.5 base secret key
RWRGy8gxk9N935xWg20Ru3XLMEb6TGuUyCXIo9Pe0dP9nVMZMMMvscjhHEbrFZZGLvkEeQqYiVsAf1fyj6eSeQ1Y/aUOiiDPYAQ=

    It seems like it was generated incorrectly.

Current status of specific ARM Cortex A8 (armhf) based SOC

I have the hardware shown with the link below. It boots Debian Wheezy 7.

https://www.olimex.com/Products/OLinuXino/A10/A10-OLinuXino-LIME/open-source-hardware

Can't find much (any?) info if/how much it is supported in OpenBSD current
(5.5).

I do not believe it has any serial connection as is, so I suppose I may
have to get something like a USB to serial adapter (USB to the board, with
a serial cable to the the PC serial port?). If so, I'd prefer one that
works both for OpenBSD and Linux if possible.

My current Debian kernel has modules for: (everything with y is compiled
into the kernel, m is a module that can be loaded optionally, not set means
I'd need a kernel recompile, but it can be done. Obviously y or m is best)

CONFIG_USB_SERIAL=m
CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_GENERIC=y
CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_AIRCABLE=m
CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_ARK3116=m
CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_BELKIN=m
CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_CH341=m
CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_WHITEHEAT=m
CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_DIGI_ACCELEPORT=m
CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_CP210X=m
CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_CYPRESS_M8=m
CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_EMPEG=m
CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_FTDI_SIO=m
CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_FUNSOFT=m

Re: Samsung Chromebook (Exynos 5250)

Hi,

How to boot the latest snapshot of Bitrig (bsd.rd.EXYNOS.umg) on an ARM Samsung Chromebook? I suppose i
need a simplefb u-boot variant? I've tried Google's one and another from Virtual Open Systems. In both
cases the kernel messages hadn't come to the screen. Unfortunately, i don't have a serial wired out to see
how far it goes.

P.S. Maybe i should try to use bsd.rd.EXYNOS and go <address> instead of bsd.rd.EXYNOS.umg and bootm <address>?

Thanks.

Cubieboard2

Any Zaurus users left?

Wondering if there are any Zaurus users still out there.  There are a few
of us chugging along trying to get 5.4 running.  There have been some ports
problems that, so far, have been global to the arm architecture.  I've seen
fixes posted to the ports list but I can't seem to find them pushed to CVS
anywhere.

Anyway, just wondering if there were more of us out there with a Z still
kicking around.

Tim.

Cubieboard2 boot troubles

Hello folks.

My name is Nikita.

I am try to boot miniroot-sunxi-55.fs  from Transcend microSD 2GB on
Cubieboard2

And Cubieboard2 freez on stage Uboot version printing.

SD card is good, im check it with "Cubian" image.

And Cubieboard2 is good, facture soft is fine, and "cubian" image work fine.

I am try to boot in to stage uboot command prompt and after that insert sd
with miniroot, but

Uboot cannot find mmc device: So I have two way: first - is freez board with
"preinserted" sd

and second - is uboot cannot find "afterinserted" sd card:

I hope my English is not break your mind: Sorry for this I am from Russia.

Thank you in advance for your answers.

Yours respectfully Nikita.

new BeagleBone Black install

Hello,

I'm new to bbb and didn't use OpenBSD for a while
but those two came together right now.
Installation went quite well. Building and booting a
new GENERIC-OMAP kernel went well, too.
Building the userland takes forever.

I'm a programmer an willing to help, but unfortunately
im not that deep into C.

Building ports on BBB

Should building ports on a BeagleBoneBlack work?  Or is it something that is known to be not functional and
will be fixed once the armv7 platform support is more mature?

Using/enabling multiple (com) serial ports

Using latest armv7 snapshot on BeagleBone; I'd really like to know
how to do this. Having multiple serial ports is rather attractive for
an embedded control application. (Several applications, actually.)

In addition to the serial console, there are 3 additional asynchronous
serial interfaces on the expansion header of the BeagleBone Black.
I hooked up RS-232 interface cables to both Uart0 and Uart1. Uart0 is
of course the boot console. While attempting to do the verification of
connectivity for Uart1, I discovered the additional ports are missing.

I have Python 2.7.6 and pySerial installed. (Since no packages
available for the 5.5 armv7 snapshot, I bootstrapped pkgsrc and built
a select few, with the strategic use of a few NFS-mounted folders.)

[beaglebone: ~]$ python2.7
