2009-03-31 09:35:54     TFTP & Colinux download procedure

Total newbie here...

 

Looking at this document:

 

https://docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/doku.php?id=setting_up_a_tftp_server

 

I would like to have the tftp server up and running on colinux.  How is this done?  Is there a procedure?

 

I've got dasBoot on the target, so (I think) I can do this stuff once the server is alive:

 

docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/doku.php?id=downloading_to_the_target

 

Thanks,

 

JC

When using Windows - try to get a windows server running first (it's easier to debug - and make sure that your firewall issues are solved)

Yes.  I actually do have TFTP Turbo up and running, but got wrapped around the axle with the requirement in this document:

 

https://docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/doku.php?id=setting_up_a_tftp_server  that says...

 

"In this example C:\tftpboot is used. Ensure that a valid uClinux kernel image exists in this directory..."

 

My built uClinux kernal lives in the colinux universe in that ginormous .img file, not windows.

I got it -- I think most people use samba on CoLinux to share the drive.

 

Our CoLinux expert is out getting married - so I'll have to poke around to find a better solution.

Married!? another one bits the dust...

 

I'll also look around to see how to use samba to share the drive.  To that end, what "drive" do I share.  Don't I need to somehow copy my uClinux kernal to the c:\tftpboot directory?  Is it that simple?  If so, what do I keyboard at the colinux prompt to make this happen?  (sorry - all newbie questions I suppose... Thanks for your patience.)

After 'make' finishes, you should have a bunch of files sitting in the images directory.

Robin -

 

I'm OK with the shared folders thing now (can cp to ~/mnt/windows/tftpboot Windows directory from any colinux directory, etc.).  Figured all that out.

 

And I suppose I do have a bunch of image files in the images directory since I did a successful make.   Where is the "images" directory, anyway?

 

Assuming I can get the target and TFTP Turbo playing together, what image file(s) do I download to the target?

 

Thanks,

 

JC

the images dir is in the uclinux-dist dir and is created after you build it

 

the documentation covers port forwarding to CoLinux:
