Hi,

i'm making my first steps and try to add more boot-scripts (to land in /env/boot)

i added a scipt in

arch/arm/boards/rockchip-rk3568-evb/defaultenv/mmc-linux

and set

DEFAULT_ENVIRONMENT_PATH [=arch/arm/boards/rockchip-rk3568-evb/defaultenv]

but if i boot the board /env/boot only contains the 2 default scripts

barebox@Rockchip RK3568 EVB:/ ls /env/boot/
bnet    net

so maybe the dir/config-option i used is for defining variables only right? should this point to an directory or a file?

i see this file which looks like the source of it

./defaultenv/defaultenv-2-base/boot/net

I've put them there and they appear, but this is not board specific, so if i later want to upstream one this is maybe not the right place.

./defaultenv/defaultenv-2-menu/menu/10-boot-all/net

seems to be a menu entry, but have not yet figured out how i can define one to add my scripts too

have not found anything for it in the documentation yet

btw. is there a way to use ls with wildcard without printing the path?

ls /mnt/sd.1/extlinux/
Image_5.16            Image_5.16-next.gz    Image_5.16.gz

ls /mnt/sd.1/extlinux/Image*
/mnt/sd.1/extlinux/Image_5.16
/mnt/sd.1/extlinux/Image_5.16-next.gz
/mnt/sd.1/extlinux/Image_5.16.gz

i want to list only files matching Image*, but without path....number of columns does not matter

regards Frank

This should be defaultenv/boot/mmc-linux instead.

Try ls -R /env, you should see mmc-linux at top-level with your
current setup.

Top level is only meant for directories. There are directories for the different
stuff, e.g. variables go into /env/nv/

> should this point to an directory or a file?

The config option is meant for use with external build systems, e.g. buildroot
or PTXdist. For boards in-tree, you can add bbenv-y in the Makefile and call

  // assuming directory is called defaultenv-myboard
  defaultenv_append_directory(defaultenv_myboard);

in the board code, see e.g. arch/arm/boards/embest-marsboard for an example.

The reason for avoiding the config option for in-tree boards is that a single barebox
configuration can build multiple boards in one go:
extreme case: imx_v7_defconfig, which builds marsboard also builds more than 100 other images.

The config option is global, but by explicitly calling defaultenv_append_directory,
you can have board-specific environments.

Ye, you can use this for debugging, but stuff upstreamed there must be generally
applicable.

> so if i later want to upstream one this is maybe not the right place.

Boot scripts for publicly available evaluation kits are often not good candidates
for upstreaming, because everybody using the EVKs has different thoughts on how to
boot. The best way would be to use bootloader spec. It's one or more files you
place at a known location that describe where your kernel and device tree are and
what command line arguments to use and barebox can then automatically generate
boot entries from all available bootloader spec files.

See https://elinux.org/images/9/9d/Barebox-bells-n-whistles.pdf for an example
of how to set this up. This is what I'd recommend instead of writing your own
scripts.

The default boot menu is populated with the boot entries extracted from
the contents of $global.boot.default.

boot -m will display that menu. It will also include all bootloader spec files.
If that suffices, you won't need to create your own menu. If you want though,
check the help text of the menutree command.

To boot into the boot menu, set nv autoboot=menu. "Detect bootsources" will
list boot sources known to the barebox boot command.

See magicvar for a listing of all magic variables, or refer to the documentation.

Yes, cd /mnt/sd.1/extlinux

currently only net is listed there

barebox@Rockchip RK3568 EVB:/ echo $global.boot.default
net

but in /env/boot i have my 2 new scripts

barebox@Rockchip RK3568 EVB:/ ls /env/boot
bnet          mmc-linux     net           tftp-linux

needed to add this option, and now it prints only "net" and "back",not my own scripts ;(

do i need my scripts to ./defaultenv/defaultenv-2-menu/menu/10-boot-all/ too?

> To boot into the boot menu, set nv autoboot=menu. "Detect bootsources" will

is this stored anywhere so that is persistent on next reboot?

btw. how does saveenv exactly work (which part/filename/offset is used)? sasha told me that device will be enumerated to the current boot device, but where on this device is the env stored?

mhm, simple ;) can i store the active directory to restore it after script was run (if needed, e.g. on error booting)?

pwd shows current directory, but i cannot put it into an var...the bash approach does not work

barebox@Rockchip RK3568 EVB:/mnt/sd.1/extlinux pwd
/mnt/sd.1/extlinux
barebox@Rockchip RK3568 EVB:/mnt/sd.1/extlinux thisdir=$(pwd)
barebox@Rockchip RK3568 EVB:/mnt/sd.1/extlinux echo $thisdir
$(pwd)
barebox@Rockchip RK3568 EVB:/mnt/sd.1/extlinux

Variables beginning with 'nv.' are stored in the environment
automatically.

Normally it's described in the device tree:

	environment-emmc {
		compatible = "barebox,environment";
		device-path = &environment_emmc;
	};

The device-path property points to a partition on the eMMC:

&sdhci {
	...
	partitions {
		compatible = "fixed-partitions";

		environment_emmc: partition@408000 {
			label = "barebox-environment";
			reg = <0x0 0x408000 0x0 0x8000>;
		};
	};
};

It works for example with:

for i in /mnt/sd.1/extlinux/Image*; do basename $i b; echo $b; done

But anyway, I'm with Ahmad here, you should rather look into bootloader
spec. The shell is nice to have, but it's even nicer to not have to use
it.

if i understand it right i need to create a dir

arch/arm/boards/rockchip-rk3568-evb/defaultenv-rk3568

with dirs nv (variables) and boot (bootscripts)

and add
bbenv-y += defaultenv-rk3568
in
arch/arm/boards/rockchip-rk3568-evb/Makefile

is extlinux (i used in uboot and conf-file is already present) supported here?

i do not fully understand the bootloader spec in the pdf as config file seems to be

/mnt/mmc0.4/loader/entries/stm32mp157c-dk2.conf

and then
boot -d mmc0.4

is run...so the path (loader/entries) seems to be fixed and all files there will be processed (which order)?
how is root appended (/dev/mmcblkXpY|uuid|...) when linux-appendroot is set to true?

sorry for asking dumb questions but i want to understand how to do it right and not only doing anything ;)

do i need to propagate my own scripts somewhere to be listed in the bootmenu?

in cmdline i had tried this:

global.boot.default="net mmc-linux tftp-linux"
boot -m

which works, but how can i set this variable at compile-time?

is the right way creating a file
defaultenv/defaultenv-2-base/nv/boot.default (or arch/arm/boards/rockchip-rk3568-evb/defaultenv-rk3568/nv/boot.default)
with the content i want? so it looks like in the pdf above ("global.variable s, these are initialized from the
correspoding non-volatile nv.variable s")

thx, if i understand it right, then it's an offset/size defined in dts by reg-property. My board uses the same values which is iirc a bit above the 4M position (0x408000,4M=0x400000).
As i don't have a real partition there (first partition is at 8M), so i guess it is directly written (no file, like ENV_OFFSET in uboot). The 0x8000 should be the size (32kByte like ENV_SIZE), right?

nice, that makes it a bit more usable like using numbers to choose

i=0;for f in /mnt/sd.1/extlinux/Image*; do basename $f b; echo "$i:$b";let i++; done

this is for testing multiple kernels with changing filenames (very dynamic process, e.g. using 1 kernel binary with multiple dtb) and to avoid adding a bootmenu entry everytime....this is not for end-user :)

and here scripting is imho the best way...this allows me to add extra params to cmdline too (like debug level,dumping offsets) without changing a distroboot config

for fixed kernels i have defined an extlinux.conf for uboot, but i'm unsure if barebox can use this file too. have not found anything about extlinux/syslinux in barebox yet.

Yes. Furthermore you have to add to the board code:

	defaultenv_append_directory(defaultenv_rk3568);

Yes. No particular order, I guess it would be the order it is on the
filesystem.

When root is appended it is assumed to be the same fs that also has the
bootloader spec file, so the rootfs also has the entry and the kernel.

By creating the file defaultenv/defaultenv-2-base/nv/boot.default with
the content "net mmc-linux tftp-linux". Alternatively you can also
create your own board specific env overlay like discussed above using
the bbenv-y approach.

Yes. It's the fixed partition binding normally used for raw NOR/NAND
flashes.

In that case you could also use bootm directly.

Not sure if you know already, but barebox concatenates all variables in
the "global.linux.bootargs." namespace to the kernel command line, so
you can easily add or remove a variable to add/remove kernel options
without affecting unrelated options.

No, not yet.

Hi

missed the defaultenv_append_directory(defaultenv_rk3568); in board-file...after adding that it seems to work

maybe this is the part i've missed. i thought it were 2 ways...either link via makefile or add to boards code

ok, then this is not usable for me, as i have a boot-partition (bootloader+kernel+dtb) and separate rootfs-partition

yes but my approach is to list the available kernels before and ask to enter the filename to not everytime look for correct commands ;)

i know some options from documentation like this i've used to get a earlycon for tftp

global linux.bootargs.debug="earlycon=uart8250,mmio32,0xfe660000 earlyprintk"

ok, i created a bootloader-config like described in the pdf:

cat /mnt/sd.1/loader/entries/linux-gz.conf
title Linux GZip
version 5.16
options earlycon=uart8250,mmio32,0xfe660000 console=ttyS2,1500000n8
linux /extlinux/Image_5.16.gz
devicetree /extlinux/dtb_5.16
initrd /rootfs.cpio.lz4

but on starting it is skipped due to devicetree mismatch

boot -d sd.1
blspec: ignoring entry with incompatible devicetree "rockchip,rk3568-bpi-r2pro"
blspec: ignoring entry with incompatible devicetree "rockchip,rk3568-bpi-r2pro"
Nothing bootable found on 'sd.1'
Nothing bootable found

in barebox i use the evb whereas in linux i already have a separate dts. Can i override the compatible for the bootloader or do i need to add my board (as copy of evb first)?

btw. don't you get my direct messages (regarding vop2 driver for rk3568 and the result of my barebox environment-tests)?

regards Frank

You can overwrite the compatible using the of_property command. However,
I really recommend to add a separate barebox board for your board.
Sooner or later you'll have to do this anyway and it's the only way to
properly add quirks for your board.

Yes, I received them, but probably forgot to answer them because you
didn't ask a question ;)

Hi,

i have now created a new barebox board as copy from evb. i can load it from tftp with

bootm /mnt/tftp/barebox-rk3568-r2pro.img

i can create a bootmenu with entries of loader/entries and boot it:

boot -m sd.1

my bootscripts are also there, but they are not listed in $global.boot.default

$ grep defaultenv arch/arm/boards/bananapi-r2-pro/Makefile
bbenv-y += defaultenv-rk3568
$ grep defaultenv arch/arm/boards/bananapi-r2-pro/board.c
	defaultenv_append_directory(defaultenv_rk3568);
$ cat arch/arm/boards/bananapi-r2-pro/defaultenv-rk3568/nv/boot.default
net list-images mmc-linux tftp-linux

so it looks like the env is load, but the nv is not updated

regards Frank

have now added a new barebox-board, and now this seems to work, but it's booting the first entry and do not display a menu of all configs in loader/entries, is this possible?
