hi,
i'd like to install gentoo-mips on sgi octane2 R12K-400Mhz. I read the gentoo handbook and i netboot the unit with a IP30 kernel: tried to boot http://dev.gentoo.org/~kumba/mips/netboot/ip30/ip30-r10k+-20050128.img.bz2 via bootp (Gentoo Linux/MIPS Handbook, Part 2). the kernel is downloaded correctly but unfortunately it in't execued.


it was stopped with an error: prom write error on cacheline 0x1fcc0f00 at PC=8000000202729e0, then everything stops. Mouse and keyboard are dead and sometimes the red light comes up.

Kumba recommended to try the following boot method (and i did)

>> resetenv
>> unsetenv netaddr
>> unsetenv dlserver
>> setenv dbaud 9600
>> setenv console d
>> init

about the firmware: PROM monitor SGI version 6.5 Rev 4.16 IP30 May 22, 2003 64 bit


i think we could use octane2 added with a PCI-cage (i have it) to use a pci-matrox-millennium-1/2 as framebuffer: i did it on HPPA-risc-machine and it is superlative !

the only problem is how to correctly boot the kernel and how to install it ...

Clearly there's something about that netboot image that your Octane does not like. That said... Kumba has been working on new boot media for the 2006.1 release, I'll see if I can locate where he's stashed the files, and let you know where to get them.

I can't assist myself as I don't own an Octane (wish I did though).

thank you !

i'd like to collaborate, testing gentoo for these machines (ones i have here)

- sgi impact R10000
- sgi octane2 R12000


about the last gentoo R. from www.gentoo.org when i try to install it on impact R10K, i'm informed there is something bad in emerge --sync. The portage from the server seems to be damaged and the procedure stops at 88% with an error about a buf in an ebuild. I Could redo the procedure and report it right, if it could help.

Did you find a bootable kernel yet? If not try the one redhatter recommended to me a while back:

http://dev.gentoo.org/~kumba/mips/netboot/testing/ip30-r10k+-20060112.img.bz2

I have one of those Octanes1.5 with the green skins, but the 030-1467-00x motherboard, the Octane2 Heart chip, the 1.4 Xbow, and the later power supply. It's a dual R12000 300. The biggest difference is that mine has SE + TRAM graphics rather than V-whatever. I'm thinking that if a kernel will work on my machine, it ought to work on yours.

Do let us know how it goes with the pci graphics experiment. (You and your pci-box, you lucky dog you. I once had one, but I had to give it and the Octane up before a transpacific move.) Given that a lot of people don't have the PCI shoebox[1], I'd rather have fully functional Impact/Oddysey drivers, but more in the way of options is always a good thing.



[1] Don't know if they are any easier to find than the Octane PCI box, but I've heard that it's possible to use an Origin2K XIO/PCI carrier in an Octane XIO slot. Can anyone confirm that?

about ip30-r10k+-20060112.img.bz2, i realize it boots fine (without the previous error) on the blue octane2 REV 2003, but it is impossible to use console=/dev/ttyS0 specifed as kernel boot parameter: the system simply panic ! So i used the V6 graphic board as console, then i used ssh

there is a problem in portage archives: emerge --sync stops at the 88% of the update, and it is impossible to emerge mips-sources, so it is impossible to recompile the kernel and a lot of system sources. Also i note the portage tree is 2005 dated on the server. How to complete the gentoo installation ???

error emerging mips-sources

please help me to fix it, we have to run gentoo on octane2 R12K
what is wrong ? is it the /etc/make.conf ? if so, what is the right ?

Ugh... not only are you throwing in stuff that probably doesn't, or shouldn't, be there.... you forgot the one flag that did need to be there. That flag being -mabi=32. This tells the compiler to use a 32-bit ABI when compiling binaries. Compiling n32 or n64 is impossible at this stage, as none of our stages currently support these ABIs. (Well, there are n32 ones... but they're highly experimental.)

On the serial console stuff... console=/dev/ttyS0 will fail, because your syntax is wrong... the correct syntax is console=ttyS0,9600, as detailed in the handbook.

sorry,

i modified /etc/make.conf to include "-mabi=32" and i did the following
rm -f /etc/make.profile
ln -s /usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/mips/2006.1/ip30/o32 /etc/make.profile
USE="-doc" emerge mips-sources


but i get this error:

snapshot and portage are updated to 2006.1, about the handbook, i'm reading the experimental one from http://www.longlandclan.hopto.org/~stuartl/gentoo/docs/index.php/handbook/handbook-mips.xml?part=1&chap=5



what is wrong now ? please help me, i'm stopped at mips-sources

the gentoo-kernel for sgi octane2 is 64bit, so we have to emerge kgcc64.

kgcc64 is installed as a 64bit version of the standard gcc.
Unfortunatly it seems there is no 64 bit version of the binutils, so when i go to /usr/src/linux and i invoke make, i'm stopped by "no mips64-linux-ld". There is no 64bit version of the linker (ld)

how to fix it ?

That shouldn't happen. IIRC, kgcc64 should include a linker.

The fact that it's hunting for mips64-linux-*, suggests you forgot to specify CROSS_COMPILE=mips64-unknown-linux-gnu-, as suggested by the handbook.

Alternatively, you can also cross-compile from an x86 box using crossdev to produce a mips64 cross-compiler. This is what we do, generally, because it's a lot faster than compiling natively on a MIPS machine.

My O2 is currently installing kgcc64, I shall report back.

ddc: What stage did you start from? It looks like C++ is missing. Or at least, the configure test in gmp thinks the C++ headers are missing. Rather curious.

Also, for the kernel, I thought we had a tweak go in to fix that. That might've been crossdev, though. Add this command to your bash profile:
alias mips64make="make ARCH=mips CROSS_COMPILE=mips64-unknown-linux-gnu-"

Then you can just run "mips64make vmlinux" to get the build system to work. Remember, O2 users, if using gcc-4.1.x, need to use vmlinux.32 as their target.

hi,
with these incomprensible errors on my IP30 machine, i decided to re-format the harddisk, and re doing the following procedure: unfortunatly it is still stopped by the previous error, as i have posted

in portage i can see gnu-gcc v3.4.6, c, c++, gnu-as v2.16.1
emerging sys-devel/gcc (4.1.1) and kgcc64 (3.4.6)) doen't solve the problem

Well... I've just unpacked a fresh stage3 2006.1 tarball on my IP28. Ran emerge --metadata (I mounted the external environment's /usr/portage via mount --bind). Did an env-update then ran the following:

Code:
fullhouse / # emerge -a mips-sources

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild  N    ] dev-libs/gmp-4.2.1  USE="doc -nocxx"
[ebuild  N    ] dev-libs/mpfr-2.2.0_p10
[ebuild  NS   ] sys-devel/gcc-4.1.1  USE="doc fortran ip28 multislot nls -bootstrap -build -gcj -gtk -hardened -ip32r10k -mudflap -nocxx -objc -objc++ -objc-gc -test -vanilla"
[ebuild  N    ] app-admin/addpatches-0.2
[ebuild  N    ] sys-kernel/mips-sources-2.6.17.10  USE="ip28 -build -cobalt -ip27 -ip30 -ip32r10k"

Would you like to merge these packages? [Yes/No] yes

Worth noting that it's not finished yet... but it did get passed checking the C++ compiler works, and is now compiling gmp as I type this.

Update 20060923T1218: It has finished gmp and is now compiling mfpr.
Update 20060923T1230: Now done mfpr, and has started gcc.

to fix my problem:

1) i remerged gcc-3.4.6 (not the 4.1.1)
2) i emerged dev-libs/gmp
3) i didn't emerge kgcc64 as it still included in portage
4) i fix up bad names about mips64: the compile tool has aspected to have /usr/bin/mips64-linux-* not mips64-unknown-gnu-*
5) USE="ip30" emerge mips-sources has finished with a success !!!

then i (finally) build up the kernel (2.6.17), that is now running ....


all i have done is written in the previous post of mine.

could i see your /etc/make.conf ? (for ip28)

on octane2 i used to replace it with the make.defauld defined in ip30/o32 profile

about the pci-cage, i can read



sys-kernel/mips-sources-2.6.17.10
Things to keep in mind when building a kernel for an SGI Octane:
- Impact (MGRAS) console and X driver work, please report any bugs.
- VPro (Odyssey) console works, but no X driver exists yet.
- PCI Card Cages should work for many devices, except certain types like
PCI-to-PCI bridges (USB hubs, USB flash card readers for example).
- Do not use OHCI-based USB cards in Octane. They're broke on this machine.
Patches are welcome to fix the issue.
- Equally, UHCI Cards are showing issues in this release, but should still
function somewhat. This issue manifests itself when using pl2303 USB->Serial
 adapters.
- Other XIO-based devices like MENET and various Impact addons remain
untested and are not guaranteed to work. This applies to various
digital video conversion boards as well.



i've putted a matrox m2 inside this PCI-XIO bridge, dmesg is reporting that matroxfb: probe of 0001:01:01.0 has failed with an error.


Code:

PCI: Failed to allocate mem resource #1:800000@1d800000 for 0001:01:01.0
pci_hotplug: PCI Hot Plug PCI Core version: 0.5
fakephp: Fake PCI Hot Plug Controller Driver
BRIDGE: Memory #0, size 0x4000 for little-endian 0001:01:01.0 --> direct 32-bit at bus 0x01000000 vma 0x000000d041000000
BRIDGE: Memory #6, size 0x10000 for little-endian 0001:01:01.0 --> direct 32-bit at bus 0x01010000 vma 0x000000d041010000
matroxfb: Matrox Millennium (PCI) detected
matroxfb: video RAM is not available in PCI address space, matroxfb disabled

Yep... not suprised about that at all. VGA cards are very "special", and thus rarely work on exotic architectures. I had the same thing with an ISA video card in the EISA slot on my IP28.

As for the make.conf on my IP28... there's nothing all that special about it. Most of the magic required is done by the default-linux/mips/2006.1/ip28/* profiles.

Could you tell me what the hinv output is of your system? I am wondering how similar it is to my Octane.

Thanks!

Im much too tired to keep going for now, could you please tell me step by step how you got 2006.1 to actually compile? I am lost, sorry for posting so much. I'll take a nap and check back here later and see if someone can help. (since there is a bug would you guys suggest I install from the 2005.1?) thanks!
