2009-09-01 06:14:33     Getting started with an EZKIT-BF533

Hi folks.

 

I would like to try out uCLinux. Unfortunately I don't have a Stamp Board, but only an EZKIT-BF533.

 

I've found an article which says that it is possible to run uCLinux with an EZKIT:

  docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/doku.php?id=hw:boards:bf533-ezkit

 

But I have no idea how to start with an EZKIT and I didn't found anything on the internet what could help me.

 

Would anyone be so kind to give me a hint (or two :-)

 

Thanks a lot.

Linux runs also on the BF533-EZKIT.

  docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/doku.php?id=hw:boards:bf533-ezkit

 

Your main problem for now is to get u-boot flashed.

  docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/doku.php?id=bootloaders:u-boot

  docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/doku.php?id=bootloaders:u-boot:loading

 

 

Later you probably want to have a USB-LAN card too.

  docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/doku.php?id=hw:cards:usb-lan_ez-extender

Thank you for your answer.

 

I simply don't know how to start.

 

I tried to follow these steps:

 

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

 

1.Step: Installing / Configuring Linux - No Problem. Worked fine.

 

next Step would be: Terminal Programs

 

But how could I communicate with my EZKIT via UART? There ist no Firmware which could answer...

 

What do I have to do next? There is too much (or not good structured) information for a beginner.... :-(

 

I'am looking for a step by step getting startet guid. Like a tutorial or a HowTo....

 

Or at least someone who could tell me the first steps to getting started.

Message: 79496    As I said - you need to get u-boot flashed first.

If you have the VDSP testdrive installed - You can do that by using the

VDSP flash programmer.

 

Flash the BF533-EZKIT u-boot.bin image posted here:

We are in process of getting something like that together over the next day or two.

 

I need to move some things around in the docs, and I'll point you to the work in progress.

I am using VDSP 5.0 and the HPUSB-IC. Do I have to flash the .ldr or the .bin file?

 

I tried both (selected 'File format: Binary'), but with no success

 

If it succeeded, U-Boot should send a message after booting via UART which I could receive with the HyperTerminal, is that correct?

which file you select depends on which boot mode you want

 

please read the documentation:

  docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/doku.php?id=bootloaders:u-boot:loading
