Luckily I broke the boot sequence for opensuse

Fri Jun 12, 2015 1:20 pm

Hi all

Well hour after hour of fruitless pi-ing.

Tried several versions and all give the following error on reboot

Net: Net Initialization Skipped
No ethernet found

Hit any key to stop autoboot: 0
switch to partitions #0, OK
mmc0 is current device

Scanning mmc 0:1...
Found U-boot script /boot.scr

##Executing script at 00000200

##File not found boot/linux.vmx##

##Error “bootcmd_firstboot” not defined##
##Error “bootcmd_firstboot” not defined##
##Error “bootcmd_firstboot” not defined##

U-Boot>

as I mentioned earlier.

However by tampering with the UEFI partition u-boot.bin I then get a different result...

A Rainbow rectangle, and onboard the RED LED shows and the GREEN LED flashes 7 times, then repeats. Which is a step in some direction, it might even be backwards.

So I assume that the Boot part with .elf files etc is either redundant or is bypassed.

Any theories anyone on the sequence or what I can try next.

Just to confirm that initial use gives a login and I can zypper in all sorts of stuff and on reboot FAILS each and time I re-image the card.

Does the Pi have UEFI?
And some folks need to stop being fanboys and see the forest behind the trees.

(One of the best lines I've seen on this board lately)

Hi

Probably not, but it doesn't have vmx either, which is a virtual machine file.

So for now I have to go with what is bundled in the .raw.xz file that i expand onto the SD card.

http://elinux.org/R-Pi_Troubleshooting# ... ic_pattern says
7 flashes: kernel.img not found
and
With current firmware, a coloured splash screen (actually its just four pixels "blown up" by the GPU to full screen) is displayed after GPU firmware (start.elf) is loaded. This should be replaced by linux console a second later. However if the coloured screen remains, it suggests the kernel.img file is failing to boot. Try replacing it with a known good one.
