Only the master branch. There's been an issue with graphics since the
most recent drop of the kernel/libraries, and I've just merged a
change that should fix that (literally minutes ago). I haven't had
time to try it but there's a reasonable chance that it'll work.

Definitely stick with master. PandaBoard doesn't work with any other branches.

On the kernel front, omap-android-panda-3.0, which should be commit
4a094a55476cad51c85928e7c5766d71944e87ea

Hi,

The pandaboard still not boot with master of device/ti/panda (kernel problem on I2c commit 6c8e76e158a9bc849ec946ab030595e06ad89210).

After revert this commit, there is a kernel panic.
Is the kernel booting on your board or not? 

Thanks,
Adrien

2012/10/10 Weston Weems <wwe...@gmail.com>
Definitely fixed the graphics driver problem... I'm slapping together my changes in the kernel now...

Re: [android-building] Do any current branches currently build / boot for pandaboard Jean-Baptiste Queru 10/11/12 5:50 AM
I have evidence that the latest kernel boots on my boards, but I'm
hitting other issues (no display, no adb).

Do you have a Pandaboard or a Pandaboard ES (OMAP 4430 or OMAP 4460)?

One of each. I'm seeing the same result on both.

So it's very strange.

I checkouted the latest Android version (branch master on .repo/manifest commit f46b8df32efc4979bdca52bf52e83fd816819f60)
On device/ti/panda I am on 5f567f13b76dc6b2e1bfe3d279fbac0427704a09.

It's allright or not?

My pandaboard boots now (with graphics). This is my flashing script :

But that might not be exactly it. There's also an entry in the git log about "Pull bionic's time zone data from the new single 'tzdata' file." It sounds like those zoneinfo.* files are depreciated for some uses?

What I do know is that earlier last week the code would build and make working img files. But now if you do a completely fresh repo init and sync, then make, you'll not end up with any "bionic/libc/zoneinfo/zoneinfo.*" files or "out/target/product/panda/system/usr/share/zoneinfo/zoneinfo.*" files. These zoneinfo.* files missing from the system.img prevents android from booting past the splash-screen. (and logcat on the device shows complaints relating to zoneinfo).

If I place zoneinfo.* files (from an old build) in "out/target/product/panda/system/usr/share/zoneinfo/zoneinfo.*" and re-run make to re-generate the .img files, I end up with a build that will boot.

Re: [android-building] Do any current branches currently build / boot for pandaboard Brad Arnold 10/26/12 10:37 AM
I've noticed that with master on the panda lots of apps that are not included with AOSP don't run at all. I've assumed that this may be due to an API which isn't exactly consistent with the last released version. I suspect master wouldn't pass the CTS (with any target device). Have you tried running other apps on the build you created? Is it better?

I was actually going to try this myself too, but it takes me so long to build on my home machine.

Heyde,

it is quite interesting to see, that the i2c problem mentioned by @p fu is not specific to omap4430. I managed to boot my Panda by changing the SYSC register offset in drivers/i2c/busses/i2c-omap.c of the linux kernel from 0x10 to 0x20.
I think the problem lies in the code using/surrounding SYSC register (i2c subsys/drvier), because newer linux kernels (I tested version 3.6) have the register offset 0x10 and boot well on the same board!

Not sure about the panda version and kernel stuff then.

But it does sound (at least to me) that you're missing some zoneinfo files. Can you run ps aux or top or something to figure out what task your PID actually correlates to? (run ps aux, wait for next untracked PID printout, reference back to ps ax output). This should at least point you in the right direction.

This is a known issue and seems to be related to I2S init. Seems to affect "older" boards (don't know if that means a specific rav). I know that Dan is working on a solution.

Re: [android-building] Do any current branches currently build / boot for pandaboard Brad Arnold 11/8/12 7:59 AM
I was able to make master work (as of about a week ago) as long as I inserted the three zoneinfo files (this is on rev B1). However, I decided I didn't want to run master, I wanted to run 4.1 (which I find to be more stable). So here's my process start to finish:

$ mkdir WORKING_DIRECTORY
$ cd WORKING_DIRECTORY
$ repo init -u https://android.googlesource.com/platform/manifest -b android-4.1.2_r1
$ repo sync
$ tar xzvf imgtec-panda-20120807-c4e99e89.tgz
$ chmod +x extract-imgtec-panda.sh
$ ./extract-imgtec-panda.sh
$ cd device/ti/panda/
$ git checkout aosp/master
$ cd ../../../hardware/ti/omap4xxx/
$ git checkout aosp/master
$ source build/envsetup.sh
$ lunch full_panda-userdebug
$ make

and then when it's all done:

$ device/ti/panda/usbboot device/ti/panda/bootloader.bin
power up board with no sd card, let it boot from usb, then insert SD card
$ fastboot oem format
$ fastboot flash xloader device/ti/panda/xloader.bin
$ fastboot flash bootloader device/ti/panda/bootloader.bin
reboot into fastboot by holding the GPIO button
$ fastboot flash cache
$ fastboot flash userdata
$ fastboot flashall


I've bolded the parts that are different from the typical documentation that is floating around. (including device/ti/panda/README)

No promises that this works with any revision other than B1. But I would assume it works with B2 as well, because I believe the only difference is the DDR manufacturer. 

Cheers,

Brad

Hi Brad,

I also have the same problem with booting pandaboard es Rev. B
I repeated all the steps you mentioned and got the same result.
The boot process hangs at the same stage - blank screen with no other log records.
Also I see i2c error in the log.

Could you please suggest me how can I troubleshoot the boot process or solve this problem.

Where did you see that output? The RS232 port?

That I2C error doesn't seem to matter, I get the exact same output as you from u-boot (including the I2C error), but the kernel boots fine. That message is a red herring.

It seems like the kernel doesn't properly have stdout set up. But that's odd if you're using the kernel from master and the same hardware rev as me. I would expect you'd see some output from the kernel.

Here's a thought: what program are you using to view the serial output? Maybe the kernel is set up to use flow control, but your serial terminal isn't supporting it? I'm using screen (ie: "sudo screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200").

Brad,

I'm using minicom. I set it up as described in this article http://omappedia.org/wiki/PandaBoard_Ubuntu_Minicom
and I had no problem with the terminal and linaro android image. Also the device works fine with ubuntu.

I'd say that the kernel hangs because the activity leds don't blink and no signal on hdmi and dvi ports.

I'm out of ideas. The latest kernel works fine for me. :/

I've not tried to get video acceleration working yet (though it's on my to-do list). If you have any luck, please post back :) .

I have had it working on other branches, but I don't remember which. It may have been 4.1.1, or it may have been master (a few weeks ago).

this worked for me, thanks.
but i don't know how to get hw video acceleration working.
i added ducati decoder to /etc/media_codecs.xml, and copied ducati-m3.bin to /system/vendor/firmware.
it is supposed that /dev/rpmsg-omx1 be created during kernel startup. but it's not there.

any sugestions from you?

I've merged in a bunch of changes, both in user-space and in the
kernel, and in my latest tests the master branch boots (but hangs) on
PandaBoard, and seems fine on PandaBoard ES.

Unfortunately, 4430 is likely to remain somewhat tricky. The
PandaBoard kernel is based on the one that is used in the Galaxy
Nexus, which uses a 4460, and it's very possible that there are other
changes lurking in there that make 4430 unhappy (we found one, but we
have to assume there are more).
