Embedded boards based on PowerPC, ARM, MIPS and several other
processors, which can be installed in a boot ROM and used to
initialize and test the hardware or to download and run application
code.

The development of U-Boot is closely related to Linux: some parts of

35
the source code originate in the Linux source tree, we have some
header files in common, and special provision has been made to

support booting of Linux images.

Some attention has been paid to make this software easily
configurable and extendable. For instance, all monitor commands are
implemented with the same call interface, so that it's very easy to
add new commands. Also, instead of permanently adding rarely used
code (for instance hardware test utilities) to the monitor, you can
load and run it dynamically.


Status:
=======

In general, all boards for which a configuration option exists in the
50
Makefile have been tested to some extent and can be considered

"working". In fact, many of them are used in production systems.

Versioning:
===========

U-Boot uses a 3 level version number containing a version, a
sub-version, and a patchlevel: "U-Boot-2.34.5" means version "2",
sub-version "34", and patchlevel "4".

The patchlevel is used to indicate certain stages of development
between released versions, i. e. officially released versions of
U-Boot will always have a patchlevel of "0".

Software Configuration:
=======================

Configuration is usually done using C preprocessor defines; the
rationale behind that is to avoid dead code whenever possible.

There are two classes of configuration variables:

* Configuration _OPTIONS_:
  These are selectable by the user and have names beginning with
  "CONFIG_".

* Configuration _SETTINGS_:
  These depend on the hardware etc. and should not be meddled with if
  you don't know what you're doing; they have names beginning with
  "CFG_".

Later we will add a configuration tool - probably similar to or even
identical to what's used for the Linux kernel. Right now, we have to
do the configuration by hand, which means creating some symbolic
links and editing some configuration files. We use the TQM8xxL boards
as an example here.


Selection of Processor Architecture and Board Type:
---------------------------------------------------

For all supported boards there are ready-to-use default
configurations available; just type "make <board_name>_config".

Example: For a TQM823L module type:

	cd u-boot
	make TQM823L_config

For the Cogent platform, you need to specify the cpu type as well;
e.g. "make cogent_mpc8xx_config". And also configure the cogent
directory according to the instructions in cogent/README.


Configuration Options:
----------------------

Configuration depends on the combination of board and CPU type; all
such information is kept in a configuration file
"include/configs/<board_name>.h".

Example: For a TQM823L module, all configuration settings are in
"include/configs/TQM823L.h".

Many of the options are named exactly as the corresponding Linux
kernel configuration options. The intention is to make it easier to
build a config tool - later.

		When this option is #defined, the existence of the
		environment variable "preboot" will be checked
		immediately before starting the CONFIG_BOOTDELAY
		countdown and/or running the auto-boot command resp.
		entering interactive mode.

		This feature is especially useful when "preboot" is
		automatically generated or modified. For an example
		see the LWMON board specific code: here "preboot" is
		modified when the user holds down a certain
		combination of keys on the (special) keyboard when
		booting the systems

- Serial Download Echo Mode:
		CONFIG_LOADS_ECHO
		If defined to 1, all characters received during a
		serial download (using the "loads" command) are
		echoed back. This might be needed by some terminal
		emulations (like "cu"), but may as well just take
		time on others. This setting #define's the initial
		value of the "loads_echo" environment variable.

		CONFIG_KGDB_BAUDRATE
		Select one of the baudrates listed in

- Monitor Functions:
		CONFIG_COMMANDS
		Most monitor functions can be selected (or
		de-selected) by adjusting the definition of
		CONFIG_COMMANDS; to select individual functions,

		CONFIG_IPADDR

		Define a default value for the IP address to use for
		the default ethernet interface, in case this is not
		determined through e.g. bootp.

- Server IP address:
		CONFIG_SERVERIP

		Defines a default value for theIP address of a TFTP
		server to contact when using the "tftboot" command.

- BOOTP Recovery Mode:
		CONFIG_BOOTP_RANDOM_DELAY

		boot using BOOTP, you may want to avoid that all
		systems send out BOOTP requests at precisely the same
		moment (which would happen for instance at recovery
		from a power failure, when all systems will try to
		boot, thus flooding the BOOTP server. Defining
		CONFIG_BOOTP_RANDOM_DELAY causes a random delay to be
		inserted before sending out BOOTP requests. The
		following delays are insterted then:

		1st BOOTP request:	delay 0 ... 1 sec
		2nd BOOTP request:	delay 0 ... 2 sec
		3rd BOOTP request:	delay 0 ... 4 sec
		4th and following
		BOOTP requests:		delay 0 ... 8 sec

		You can fine tune the DHCP functionality by adding
		these flags to the CONFIG_BOOTP_MASK define:

		CONFIG_BOOTP_DNS2 - If a DHCP client requests the DNS
		serverip from a DHCP server, it is possible that more
		than one DNS serverip is offered to the client.
		If CONFIG_BOOTP_DNS2 is enabled, the secondary DNS
		serverip will be stored in the additional environment
		variable "dnsip2". The first DNS serverip is always
		stored in the variable "dnsip", when CONFIG_BOOTP_DNS
		is added to the CONFIG_BOOTP_MASK.

		CONFIG_BOOTP_SEND_HOSTNAME - Some DHCP servers are capable
		to do a dynamic update of a DNS server. To do this, they
		need the hostname of the DHCP requester.
		If CONFIG_BOOP_SEND_HOSTNAME is added to the
		CONFIG_BOOTP_MASK, the content of the "hostname"
		environment variable is passed as option 12 to
		the DHCP server.

- Status LED:	CONFIG_STATUS_LED

		Several configurations allow to display the current
		status using a LED. For instance, the LED will blink
		fast while running U-Boot code, stop blinking as
		soon as a reply to a BOOTP request was received, and
		start blinking slow once the Linux kernel is running
		(supported by a status LED driver in the Linux
		kernel). Defining CONFIG_STATUS_LED enables this
		feature in U-Boot.

- CAN Support:	CONFIG_CAN_DRIVER

		Defining CONFIG_CAN_DRIVER enables CAN driver support
		on those systems that support this (optional)
		feature, like the TQM8xxL modules.

- I2C Support:	CONFIG_HARD_I2C | CONFIG_SOFT_I2C

wdenk's avatar
wdenk committed
1186
		These enable I2C serial bus commands. Defining either of
1187
1188

		include the appropriate I2C driver for the selected cpu.

		In both cases you will need to define CFG_I2C_SPEED

1207
1208
1209
		to be the frequency (in Hz) at which you wish your i2c bus
		to run and CFG_I2C_SLAVE to be the address of this node (ie
		the cpu's i2c node address).

wdenk's avatar
wdenk committed
1210
1211
1212
		Now, the u-boot i2c code for the mpc8xx (cpu/mpc8xx/i2c.c)
		sets the cpu up as a master node and so its address should
		therefore be cleared to 0 (See, eg, MPC823e User's Manual
1213
		p.16-473). So, set CFG_I2C_SLAVE to 0.

		I2C_DELAY

		This delay is invoked four times per clock cycle so this
		controls the rate of data transfer.  The data rate thus

		When a board is reset during an i2c bus transfer
		chips might think that the current transfer is still
		in progress. On some boards it is possible to access
		the i2c SCLK line directly, either by using the
		processor pin as a GPIO or by having a second pin
		connected to the bus. If this option is defined a
		custom i2c_init_board() routine in boards/xxx/board.c
		is run early in the boot sequence.

		and write or delete attempts are rejected. You can
		change this behviour:

		these parameters.

		Alternatively, if you #define _both_ CONFIG_ETHADDR
		_and_ CONFIG_OVERWRITE_ETHADDR_ONCE, a default
		ethernet address is installed in the environment,
		which can be changed exactly ONCE by the user. [The
		serial# is unaffected by this, i. e. it remains
		read-only.]

- Protected RAM:
		CONFIG_PRAM

		Define this variable to enable the reservation of
		"protected RAM", i. e. RAM which is not overwritten
		by U-Boot. Define CONFIG_PRAM to hold the number of
		kB you want to reserve for pRAM. You can overwrite
		this default value by defining an environment
		variable "pram" to the number of kB you want to
		reserve. Note that the board info structure will
		still show the full amount of RAM. If pRAM is
		reserved, a new environment variable "mem" will
		automatically be defined to hold the amount of
		remaining RAM in a form that can be passed as boot
		argument to Linux, for instance like that:

1419
			setenv bootargs ... mem=\${mem}

		This way you can tell Linux not to use this memory,
		either, which results in a memory region that will
		not be affected by reboots.

		*WARNING* If your board configuration uses automatic
		detection of the RAM size, you must make sure that
		this memory test is non-destructive. So far, the
		following board configurations are known to be
		"pRAM-clean":

			ETX094, IVMS8, IVML24, SPD8xx, TQM8xxL,
			HERMES, IP860, RPXlite, LWMON, LANTEC,
			PCU_E, FLAGADM, TQM8260

- Error Recovery:
		CONFIG_PANIC_HANG

		Define this variable to stop the system in case of a
		fatal error, so that you have to reset it manually.
		This is probably NOT a good idea for an embedded
		system where you want to system to reboot
		automatically as fast as possible, but it may be
		useful during development since you can try to debug
		the conditions that lead to the situation.

		CONFIG_NET_RETRY_COUNT

1449
1450
1451
1452
		This variable defines the number of retries for
		network operations like ARP, RARP, TFTP, or BOOTP
		before giving up the operation. If not defined, a
		default value of 5 is used.

		constructs ("shell scripts").

		If undefined, you get the old, much simpler behaviour
		with a somewhat smaller memory footprint.

		printed when the command interpreter needs more input
		to complete a command. Usually "> ".

		In the current implementation, the local variables
		space and global environment variables space are

		directly type `$name' at the command prompt.

- SystemACE Support:
		CONFIG_SYSTEMACE

		Adding this option adds support for Xilinx SystemACE
		chips attached via some sort of local bus. The address
		of the chip must alsh be defined in the
		CFG_SYSTEMACE_BASE macro. For example:

		#define CONFIG_SYSTEMACE
		#define CFG_SYSTEMACE_BASE 0xf0000000

		When SystemACE support is added, the "ace" device type
		becomes available to the fat commands, i.e. fatls.

1553
- TFTP Fixed UDP Port:
		CONFIG_TFTP_PORT

1554
		If this is defined, the environment variable tftpsrcp
1555
		is used to supply the TFTP UDP source port value.
1556
		If tftpsrcp isn't defined, the normal pseudo-random port
1557
1558
		number generator is used.

1559
1560
1561
1562
1563
		Also, the environment variable tftpdstp is used to supply
		the TFTP UDP destination port value.  If tftpdstp isn't
		defined, the normal port 69 is used.

		The purpose for tftpsrcp is to allow a TFTP server to
1564
1565
1566
1567
1568
1569
1570
		blindly start the TFTP transfer using the pre-configured
		target IP address and UDP port. This has the effect of
		"punching through" the (Windows XP) firewall, allowing
		the remainder of the TFTP transfer to proceed normally.
		A better solution is to properly configure the firewall,
		but sometimes that is not allowed.
