if you are referring to a cross toolchain, then you are right. it is included.

but there are two different projects inside the same svn-repository. it maybe confusing for you.

maybe download a precompiled cross toolchain?

There is no avr.log in the location.


What version of avr_evtd are you running? Its currently at 1.7 and a log is dropped @ /var/log/avr_evtd.log. May help to upgrade?

Sorry, I can't understand the meaning of this.Can you describe it with other words?


Under 2.4 the kernel uses two different IRQs for the two serial devices.

I replaced the soldered ide port (the cable was broken) with pins to use a standard cable.
At the same time I added the serial port.
And I flashed the latest u-boot bootloader.


Possibily not connected the serial correctly?

I think any patch will help as the standard driver will suffer otherwise.

Try without avr_evtd; the kernel (my 2.6) doesn't need it, just the buttons do. Does this get you anywhere?

It's a ppc_uartd v1.13 which is included in the EM-mode I flashed (the telnet enabled firming.bin).
I do not know how to update it... seems difficult, because it is flashed in the rom.

I try to investigate the avr_uartd from my harddisc. First I have to mount the disc in my PC.

I removed avr_evtd from /etc/runlevels/, but it makes no difference in your 2.6-v52 kernel. It does not come up to the login prompt... just "too much work for irq....".

I will build the toolchain and try to compile a new kernel (with the a.m. patch/or without irq polling).

So long: many thanks to all of you for the help so far.

I think the patch will resolve this.

One step further.... my box boots from the harddisc into gentoo with kernel 2.4

First I updated to avr_evtd v1.7. Can't find the v1.13 in sourceforge repository...

Now I am able to compile new 2.6 kernels and can test a few things.

I'll keep you informed.

Hi folks!

Good news. I solved it.

It was a hardware problem. The soldering skills were not that good.

The capacitor in J76 wasn't installed properly. That caused a signal flicker and the uart buffer was filled with thrash.
Now nearly all is running.
What remains are the mysterious dma_timer_expiry from the harddisc.

Thanks to all of you for helping with this forum!

Well, I did not expect a new drop so soon but here it is: https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=167880

Again, this is a testing branch so please ping back this post if any issues are found. This fixes some minor issues but releases the DISK LED for other uses (as requested by many). I have also added a further recovery option which updates various user and password files to allow entry when all is lost. This is added to the reset button and a single press launches the telnet and ap_servd daemons and another will backup and update these user files. Enjoy :)

Many thanks for all the feed back. I have fixed the issues with the 1.7.1 testing candidate and will shortly release 1.7.2. I have made changes to the way in which the eventscript is launched and this is now nolonger blocking on avr_evtd. This will mean that more code/script can be added to the eventscript (along with any blocking requests) without fear of loosing event messages. This will mean that there may be more than one instance of the eventscript running. I have done this as SpannerInTheWorks is working on an LCD interface to the script and also to remove the blocking nanture of the script from the daemon process. I will ping this post when the new version is available. Sorry to those who have experienced problems, I broke some things with the testing drop and have now fixed them under 1.7.2.

I have been adding a few more extensions to support any external process (such as this LCD project) and all events are pushed through the Eventscript now including amounts; ie the shutdown time messages pass how much time is remaing out to the script. In doing this, I have also moved all the messaging system out to the event script too to reduce what is loaded in memory. I hope this will benifit all in the long term. I did all this last night and have been testing it, looks okay. I will post as soon as I can. I have updated the man page info and updated the README.txt so there is not much left before it can be posted.

By the way, the LCD looks really good. 4x20 display with a USB interface (serial) and it works as easy as an echo on Spanner's LSII. We may get an LCD plugin for the EventScript :)

Excellent! An LCD display might make a nice gift for Christmas.
