2009-01-15 17:22:29     Setenv command not recognized by BF537-Stamp

I'm attempting to download the compiled 2008 distribution to my BF537-Stamp with the 2007 dist software.

 

Following the documentation located here: http://docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/doku.php?id=downloading_to_the_target

 

When trying to set the Blackfin environment for tftpboot using the setenv operation as described on the documentation page, the BF357 returns the error file not found.

 

What am I doing wrong?

 

Thank you!

post the exact output from your console while running in u-boot

Attached is the BF537 Stamp console on boot-up and the error encountered while trying to set the serverip environmental variable from the command prompt.

 

Thank you,

That rather looks like you're trying to type a u-boot command at a linux command prompt.

 

Hit the spacebar right after you power up the device, then you may have more luck.

yeah, like Ian said, the instructions you're reading are for u-boot, not linux

Thank you Mike! The online docs are not clear to a newbie that this needs to be done in U-boot. It would be helpful mention a person needs to enter U-boot by hitting the space bar on startup. Just a suggestion.

 

I've successfully compiled the 2008 kernel, downloaded it, and it runs.

 

The basic help you've provided is VERY much appreciated.

the section you're reading starts off with "Configure networking in U-Boot with ..."

 

as a tip, when you see the prompt "bfin>", that means the example is u-boot.

Hi Mike, This was not totally obvious to someone new to both linux and the Blackfin. It might be helpful add a sentence or two to that docs page next time someone is making edits.

 

You guys are doing  great job.

 

Thank you,
