On this page you are going to find all the necessary information to start from scratch to use the RidgeRun SDK on your DM8168 Z3 module. In the following sections we assume that you have already downloaded the [http://software-dl.ti.com/dsps/dsps_public_sw/ezsdk/5_02_02_60/index_FDS.html EZSDK] version 5.02.02.60 and that you have installed the [https://www.ridgerun.com/developer/wiki/index.php/Code_Sourcery_ARM_toolchain_2009q1-203  toolchain 2009q1-203] from [http://www.codesourcery.com/sgpp/lite/arm/portal/package4573/public/arm-none-linux-gnueabi/arm-2009q1-203-arm-none-linux-gnueabi.bin codesourcery] as well as your DM8168 SDK following the steps on [[RidgeRun 2011Q2 SDK User Guide#Installation | The RidgeRun installation guide]].

The first section of this guide shows you how to install the EZSDK for DM8168 on your computer and how to configure a TFTP and NFS server. Subsequently, the second section contains instructions about how to configure the RidgeRun's SDK to create a SD card with all software components (uboot, kernel and filesystem) needed to boot to Linux Shell in your Z3 hardware. Using this SD card in the third and fourth section of this guide, you will be able to install on NAND images created by the SDK for kernel, uboot as well as your filesystem (JFFS2, UBI, NFS are available). Using the SD card created on the second section to flash the SDK in your module is just an option because you could try to use the installer of the RidgeRun's SDK with the uboot version that is running by default in a new Z3 module, however, we cannot guaranty that it will work as we expect, hence, we recommend to use the SD card instead. Finally, how to run opemax demos to encode and decode 1080p/h264 videos and some pipelines using gstreamer + openMax are shown.

The last section of this page contains useful information about two new commands added by RidgeRun in uboot in order to handle tarballs and do copies from NAND to NAND.

Some examples of use of GStreamer to implement basic multimedia pipelines can be found at [[DM81xx GStreamer Pipelines - SDK 2011Q2]]. Please be aware that in order to display video you need to do the [https://www.ridgerun.com/developer/wiki/index.php/Getting_Started_Guide_for_DM8168#Video_initialization Video initialization]
+
These u-boot commands are not part of the evaluation or professional SDK, but can be added to the professional SDK if requested.
 +
 
 +
== Description ==
 +
 
 +
RidgeRun extended uboot with additional commands for the DM816x platform.  The new functionality includes:
 +
 
 +
1. Copy a block of data from NAND to NAND and decompress the data (gz or bz) on the fly if that is specified in the command.  The size of the data being copied can be larger than the available RAM.
 +
 
 +
<pre>
 +
nand copy dest src size [gz|bz] - Read data from one section of flash, optionally decompress it, and write it to another section of flash
 +
          dest - destination flash address, must be even sector boundary
 +
          src  - source flash address, must be even sector boundary.  If data is compressed, then all header data will be stored here, as in the beginning of a bz2 archive
 +
          size - number of source bytes to copy; does not have to be even sector boundary; destination size may be larger if source is compressed
 +
          [gz|bz] - decompression algorithm
 +
                    gz: MIME type application/x-gzip
 +
                    bz: MIME type application/x-bzip2
 +
</pre>
 +
 
 +
Furthermore, RidgeRun added a nand md5sum command that can be used to verify the integrity of the data that was copied in nand.
 +
 
 +
<pre>
 +
nand md5sum src size [gz|bz] - Calculate the md5 sum for a region of flash, optionally decompressing the data
 +
</pre>
 +
 
 +
2. Add the ability to extract contents from tarballs, include: list the content of the tarball, cat a desired file that is contained in the tarball, computes the md5sum of the desired tarball or load the tarball from a SD or USB drive, decompress it, take the desired file and write it to NAND. Currently in these commands just gz decompression algorithm is supported and soon we are going to add bz.
 +
 
 +
<pre>
 +
tar - tar archive
 +
 
 +
    Usage:
 +
    tar list fat <interface> <dev[:part]> <tarfilename> [<alg>]
 +
    tar cat fat <interface> <dev[:part]> <tarfilename> <filename> [<alg>]
 +
    tar md5sum fat <interface> <dev[:part]> <tarfilename> <filename> [<alg>]
 +
    tar write_nand fat <interface> <dev[:part]> <tarfilename> <filename> <off> [<alg>] 
 +
    Parameters:
 +
            <interface>  :== file system interface name
 +
            <dev[:part]>  :== file system device and partition number
 +
            <tarfilename> :== name of tarball file on the specified storage media
 +
            <filename>    :== name of file of interest which is contained in the tarball
 +
            <off>        :== destination NAND address
 +
            <alg>        :== [gz] - decompression algorithm
 +
                              gz: MIME type application/x-gzip
 +
</pre>
 +
 
 +
== Configuring SDK to use tar commands ==
 +
 
 +
Due to [http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/DM816x_AM389x_PSP_U-Boot limitations in the DM8168], the size of uboot cannot exceed 255KB. When the tar commands is included in uboot, the executable increases to ~300KB.  Due to the hardware limitation RidgeRun implemented a boot model based in two stages to handle a large uboot executable. First, the SDK creates a uboot.min (<255KB) which doesn't have the tar command The small uboot is loaded by the ROM code in the DM8186 as normal, initializating of the board. Subsequently, The small uboot.min loads a second uboot (~300KB) which contains all the logic to implement the tar command. The two stage boot process adds around one second to the overall boot time.
 +
 
 +
The Ridgerun SDK has logic to handle this approach based in two stages (including the installation process), in order to enabled the two stage model please follow this steps:
 +
 
 +
1. Open the make config menu
 +
<pre>
 +
cd $DEVDIR
 +
make config
 +
</pre>
 +
 
 +
2. Enable two stages model
 +
 
 +
Location:                                                                                      │ 
 +
      -> Bootloader Configuration
 +
        [*] Enable two stages model for uboot
 +
 
 +
3. Close the make config menu and save your changes
 +
 
 +
== NAND layout ==
 +
 
 +
Before to start testing the uboot commands it is important to keep in mind the NAND layout used by your SDK. The following layout was detected using UBIFS ~61MB
 +
 
 +
<pre>
 +
  +------------+--->0x00000000-> U-Boot min start

Please notice that the tar commands can be used to load files from a SD card or from a USB drive, it is important to mention that if you want to load the tarball from the SD card you need to initialize the SD card running the following command:
 +
<pre>
 +
Z3-DM8168-MOD# mmc init 0
 +
mmc0 is available
 +
</pre>
 +
Moreover, if you want to use a USB drive you need to initialize it with:
 +
<pre>
 +
Z3-DM8168-MOD# usb reset
 +
(Re)start USB...
 +
USB:  scanning bus for devices... 1 USB Device(s) found
 +
      scanning bus for storage devices... 1 Storage Device(s) found

=== Tar commands  ===
 +
 
 +
In order to implement these commands we are using libarchive, you can find a useful web page about it [http://www.gsp.com/cgi-bin/man.cgi?section=3&topic=archive_read_support_compression_none here]. Furthermore, it is important to mention that in the DM8168 uboot has a size limitation, '''where 255KB is the maximum size''' that uboot can have. When we include the libarchive library we overcome that limit, so uboot will not work if you try to use it by default in your NAND memory for instance, instead you need to use a model based in two stages, please configure your SDK.

'''Testing using USB - gz decompression algorithm'''
 +
 
 +
It is important to mention that we added a 4.3MB file called log.txt which is filled with 0x00 and 0XFF in order to test the ability to read and decompress chunks. We need to include the full path in order to cat the desired file, for instance, if you want to cat 1.txt you need to specify tar/1.txt as the file to cat.

Revision as of 20:15, 5 February 2013

Introduction

On this page you are going to find all the necessary information to start from scratch to use the RidgeRun SDK on your DM8168 Z3 module. In the following sections we assume that you have already downloaded the EZSDK version 5.05.01.04 and that you have installed the toolchain 2009q1-203 from codesourcery as well as your DM8168 SDK following the steps on The RidgeRun installation guide.

The first section of this guide shows you how to install the EZSDK for DM8168 on your computer and how to configure a TFTP and NFS server. Subsequently, the second section contains instructions about how to configure the RidgeRun's SDK to create a SD card with all software components (uboot, kernel and filesystem) needed to boot to Linux Shell in your Z3 hardware. Using this SD card in the third and fourth section of this guide, you will be able to install on NAND images created by the SDK for kernel, uboot as well as your filesystem (JFFS2, UBI, NFS are available). Using the SD card created on the second section to flash the SDK in your module is just an option because you could try to use the installer of the RidgeRun's SDK with the uboot version that is running by default in a new Z3 module, however, we cannot guaranty that it will work as we expect, hence, we recommend to use the SD card instead. Additionally, how to run opemax demos to encode and decode 1080p/h264 videos and some usefult pipelines using gstreamer + openMax to do live view, take snapshots and RTSP streaming are shown. The last section of this page contains useful information about two new commands added by RidgeRun in uboot in order to handle tarballs and do copies from NAND to NAND.

On the rest of this document, we refer as $(DEVDIR) to the path where the RidgeRun SDK for DM8168 is installed

Basic preliminary work

Installing the EZSDK

1. Set the ezsdk binary as executable and set correct permissions

 sudo chmod 777 ezsdk_dm816x-evm_5_05_01_04_setuplinux

2. Install EZSDK. For ubuntu versions different than Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit you will need to add the --forcehost argument to install it:

 ./ezsdk_dm816x-evm_5_05_01_04_setuplinux --forcehost

note: During the EZSDK installation process you will be asked for the toolchain's path, assuming that you installed it on /opt, the path that you need to provide is /opt/codesourcery/arm-2009q1/bin/

Setting up serial access to the Linux console

You use the serial port to control u-boot and Linux. The picocom terminal emulator work well for this purpose.

Setting up Picocom - Ubuntu

Setting up a TFTP server

If you are planning to use the SDK's installer to install images generated by the SDK in NAND, installing a TFTP server you will speed up downloads to the target hardware by using TFTP.

Setting Up A Tftp Service

Setting up an NFS server

For application development, it is convenient to use root NFS mount file system for the target hardware. This allows you to rebuild your application on the host and immediately run the application on the target hardware with no interveining steps. You host PC needs to be configured as a NFS server for this in order to work properly.

Setting Up A NFS Service

Booting from a SD card

Setting up your Z3 module to boot from SD card

In order to boot from a SD card you need to set the MMC as the first boot device to try in the DM8168 boot sequence, this can be done configuring a correct BTMODE through the header called J20 in your Z3 module (see Fig. 1)

Configuring SDK to deploy firmware to a SD card

This section describes how to configure the DM8168's SDK to deploy all basic firmware components (kernel, uboot and MLO) into a bootable SD card. The RidgeRun SDK support several filesystem types (JFFS2, UBIFS, NFS, etc) however in this case we are going to use it on the SD card as well.

1. Set your environment variables

  cd $(DEVDIR)
 `make env`

2. Open a make config menu

 make config

running make config your SDK is going to download all basic packages needed by the SDK build system.

note: If your SDK has problems downloading some package please contact us

3. Go to Installer Configuration submenu and configure your installer as is shown in Fig.2

Figure 2. Installer configuration to deploy firmware to an SD card‎
Figure 2. Installer configuration to deploy firmware to an SD card

Using the Firmware deployment mode submenu you can set how to deploy your kernel, uboot and filesystem image into your target board. There are three options in this submenu: Attached board on communication port, Deploy all the firmware to an SD card and Create an SD card installer for flash memory.


4. Go to File System Configuration submenu and configure your filesystem as is shown in Fig.3

Figure 3. File system configuration to use it on the SD‎
Figure 3. File system configuration to use it on the SD‎

5. Compile your SDK

 make

Installing SDK's firmware to a SD card

Once you have built your SDK, you need to install it on the SD card running make install, but before to issue this command you need to unmount your SD card, otherwise the SDK won't let you install it (in order to avoid to erase information in some of your hard disks). Let's suppose that the environment variable called $(SDNAME) contains your mount point's name.

 umount /media/$(SDNAME)
 cd $(DEVDIR)
 make install

you will be asked to confirm the device that you are going to partition and format, please enter yes if it is correct. After this, the SDK will start to create a bootable SD card

Now you are ready to test your SDK booting from a SD card. Two partitions were created by the SDK: boot partition which contains the kernel, uboot and MLO image and the rootfs partition with your file system. It's important to notice that the environment of uboot is located in a *.txt file in the partition called boot, which allows you to modify it easily.

Booting from NAND

This section describes how to configure the DM8168's SDK to install the SDK's firmware in NAND as well as how to set up your Z3 module to boot from NAND. First, we are going to start flashing uboot in NAND using the SD card created in the above section, once uboot is running properly from NAND, we can start installing the kernel and finally your filesystem.

Configuring SDK to install firmware in NAND

1. Set your environment variables

 cd $(DEVDIR)
 `make env`

2. Open a make config menu

 make config

3. Go to Installer Configuration submenu and configure your installer as is shown in Fig.4

Figure 4. Installer configuration to deploy firmware in NAND‎
Figure 4. Installer configuration to deploy firmware in NAND


In this case, you must use the Attached board on communication port method, this will allow you to install all your firmware directly in nand by means of a serial port or by ethernet using a TFTP server. Here we are going to use a TFTP server and telnet as our communication method with the target board.


3.1 Go to the Communication method with the target board and select Telnet-serial adaptor

3.2 Configure the protocol to transfer images as TFTP

3.3 Set the IP address of your host machine in IP address of telnet-serial adaptor

3.4 Set the port number that you assigned in the telnet configuration file to the serial port where your Z3 module is connected in Network port of telnet-serial adaptor

4. Close the make config menu and save your changes.

Configuring your Filesystem type

The RidgeRun SDK for DM8168 Z3 RPS supports different filesystem types: UBIFS, JFFS, NFS and also as we mentioned before you can use it in your SD card as well. In this tutorial we are going to use UBI as our default filesystem.

1. Set your environment variables

 cd $(DEVDIR)
 `make env`

2. Open a make config menu

 make config

3. Go to the File System Configuration->File system image target and choose UBIFS volume. Please be sure that UBIFS sub-page size is set to 512.

4. Save your changes and compile your SDK

 make

Flashing uboot, kernel and filesystem in NAND

1.Boot the RidgeRun SDK using the SD card created in the first section of this guide and stop the uboot countdown. Close your Picocom, minicom or telnet session.

2.Run make installbootloader to install uboot in NAND

 make installbootloader

There is a known issue running the make installbootloader command when your Z3 module is initially running uboot from a SD card, in this case you will see the following error once the installer has flashed your uboot in NAND:

However, uboot is flashed in nand properly. Please ignore this error, this will be fixed in the next release.

3.Turn off your Z3 module and configure it to boot from NAND (please see Setting up your Z3 module to boot from NAND). Turn on your module and repeat step 1.

4. Now, to install your kernel and filesytem run make install

 make install

Now you have installed all the SDK components in your DM8168 Z3 module and you should be able to boot to Linux shell and see the logo of RigeRun on the HDMI output. The RidgeRun SDK for DM8168 Z3 module loads automatically all the firmware and kernel modules needed to use the video processor subsystem.

Setting up your Z3 module to boot from NAND

In order to boot from a NAND you need to set it as the first boot device to try in the DM8168 boot sequence, this can be done configuring a correct BTMODE through the header called J20 in your Z3 module (see Fig. 5)

Introduction to NAND memories

If you are more interested on NAND concepts and what is supported on the DM816x please read Introduction to NAND memories

OpenMax Demos

To run the openMax's demos that are located by default in your filesystem in a directory called omx you need to run first the following commands in your Z3 module

Video initialization

echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/vpss/graphics0/enabled 
echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/vpss/graphics1/enabled
echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/vpss/graphics2/enabled

note: To run the decode display/encode demo with a 1080p video we recommend to use your filesystem by NFS due to the size of the input and output file.

Decode display demo

This demo is the decode-display demo included in the EZSDK. It takes an input file encoded in H264, decodes the stream and sends the output to the HDMI output

./omx/decode_display_a8host_debug.xv5T -i inputFile.h264 -w 1920 -h 1080 -f 60 -g 0

Using Gstreamer

Some examples of use of GStreamer to implement basic multimedia pipelines can be found at Gstreamer pipelines for DM816x and DM814x. Please be aware that in order to display video you need to do the Video initialization

note: If you are not using the Ridgerun SDK and you are trying to use the TAG 00_06_00_00 provided by TI you will need to apply the following patch to make V4L2src and omxbufferalloc work.

Additional uboot commands

These u-boot commands are not part of the evaluation or professional SDK, but can be added to the professional SDK if requested.

Description

RidgeRun extended uboot with additional commands for the DM816x platform. The new functionality includes:

1. Copy a block of data from NAND to NAND and decompress the data (gz or bz) on the fly if that is specified in the command. The size of the data being copied can be larger than the available RAM.

nand copy dest src size [gz|bz] - Read data from one section of flash, optionally decompress it, and write it to another section of flash
          dest - destination flash address, must be even sector boundary
          src  - source flash address, must be even sector boundary.  If data is compressed, then all header data will be stored here, as in the beginning of a bz2 archive
          size - number of source bytes to copy; does not have to be even sector boundary; destination size may be larger if source is compressed
          [gz|bz] - decompression algorithm
                    gz: MIME type application/x-gzip
                    bz: MIME type application/x-bzip2

Furthermore, RidgeRun added a nand md5sum command that can be used to verify the integrity of the data that was copied in nand.

nand md5sum src size [gz|bz] - Calculate the md5 sum for a region of flash, optionally decompressing the data

2. Add the ability to extract contents from tarballs, include: list the content of the tarball, cat a desired file that is contained in the tarball, computes the md5sum of the desired tarball or load the tarball from a SD or USB drive, decompress it, take the desired file and write it to NAND. Currently in these commands just gz decompression algorithm is supported and soon we are going to add bz.

tar - tar archive
   
    Usage:
    tar list fat <interface> <dev[:part]> <tarfilename> [<alg>]
    tar cat fat <interface> <dev[:part]> <tarfilename> <filename> [<alg>]
    tar md5sum fat <interface> <dev[:part]> <tarfilename> <filename> [<alg>]
    tar write_nand fat <interface> <dev[:part]> <tarfilename> <filename> <off> [<alg>]   
    Parameters:
            <interface>   :== file system interface name
            <dev[:part]>  :== file system device and partition number
            <tarfilename> :== name of tarball file on the specified storage media
            <filename>    :== name of file of interest which is contained in the tarball
            <off>         :== destination NAND address
            <alg>         :== [gz] - decompression algorithm
                              gz: MIME type application/x-gzip

Configuring SDK to use tar commands

Due to limitations in the DM8168, the size of uboot cannot exceed 255KB. When the tar commands is included in uboot, the executable increases to ~300KB. Due to the hardware limitation RidgeRun implemented a boot model based in two stages to handle a large uboot executable. First, the SDK creates a uboot.min (<255KB) which doesn't have the tar command The small uboot is loaded by the ROM code in the DM8186 as normal, initializating of the board. Subsequently, The small uboot.min loads a second uboot (~300KB) which contains all the logic to implement the tar command. The two stage boot process adds around one second to the overall boot time.

The Ridgerun SDK has logic to handle this approach based in two stages (including the installation process), in order to enabled the two stage model please follow this steps:

1. Open the make config menu

cd $DEVDIR
make config

2. Enable two stages model

Location: │

      -> Bootloader Configuration
        [*] Enable two stages model for uboot

3. Close the make config menu and save your changes

NAND layout

Before to start testing the uboot commands it is important to keep in mind the NAND layout used by your SDK. The following layout was detected using UBIFS ~61MB

  +------------+--->0x00000000-> U-Boot min start
 |		|
 |		|-->0x0003FFFF-> U-Boot min end
 |		|-->0x00040000-> U-Boot start 
 |		|
 |		|-->0x0025FFFF-> U-Boot end
 |		|-->0x00260000-> ENV start
 |		|
 |		|
 |		|-->0x0027FFFF-> ENV end
 |		|-->0x00280000-> Linux Kernel start
 |		|
 |		|
 |		|
 |		|
 |		|-->0x006BFFFF-> Linux Kernel end
 |		|-->0x006C0000-> Filesystem start
 |		|
 |		|
 |		|
 |		|
 |		|
 |		|
 |		|
 |		|
 |		|
 |		|-->0x0435FFFF-> Filesystem end
 |		|-->0x04360000-> Free start
 |		|
 |		|
 |		|
 +------------+-->0x10000000-> NAND end (Free end)

Examples

In this section you are going to find examples about how to use the additional commands provided by RidgeRun.

Please notice that the tar commands can be used to load files from a SD card or from a USB drive, it is important to mention that if you want to load the tarball from the SD card you need to initialize the SD card running the following command:

Z3-DM8168-MOD# mmc init 0
mmc0 is available

Moreover, if you want to use a USB drive you need to initialize it with:

Z3-DM8168-MOD# usb reset
(Re)start USB...
USB:   scanning bus for devices... 1 USB Device(s) found
       scanning bus for storage devices... 1 Storage Device(s) found

Tar commands

In order to implement these commands we are using libarchive, you can find a useful web page about it here. Furthermore, it is important to mention that in the DM8168 uboot has a size limitation, where 255KB is the maximum size that uboot can have. When we include the libarchive library we overcome that limit, so uboot will not work if you try to use it by default in your NAND memory for instance, instead you need to use a model based in two stages, please configure your SDK.

Create tarballs for the test

Simple tarball

TARDIR=`pwd`/tmp
mkdir -p $TARDIR
echo "1" > $TARDIR/1.txt
echo "2" > $TARDIR/2.txt
echo "3" > $TARDIR/3.txt
( cd $TARDIR ; ln -s 3.txt 3.lnk.txt )
mkdir $TARDIR/newdir
sudo dd count=1 bs=256K if=/dev/zero of=zeros.txt
dd if=/dev/zero bs=1M count=4 | tr '\0' '\377' > ones.txt
sudo chown $USER:ridgerun *
sudo cat ones.txt >> zeros.txt
mv zeros.txt tmp/log.txt; rm ones.txt
tar cf uboot-tarball.tar tmp

In order to test the tar gz decompression algorithm

tar -czf uboot-tarball.tar.gz tmp


Please save the tarballs to a USB thumb drive or an SD card and be aware that you need to initialize the device before to use it:

USB

usb reset

SD card

mmc init 0

tar ls command

Lists the files in a tar archive

Test using the USB drive

1. tar list command

Z3-DM8168-MOD# tar list fat usb 0 uboot-tarball.tar
 directory: tmp/
 directory: tmp/newdir/
   regular: tmp/log.txt
   regular: tmp/1.txt
   symlink: tmp/3.lnk.txt
   regular: tmp/3.txt
   regular: tmp/2.txt

tar cat command

Cat a file in a tar archive

Testing using USB drive - no decompression algorithm

Z3-DM8168-MOD# tar cat fat usb 0 uboot-tarball.tar tmp/log.txt

Testing using USB - gz decompression algorithm

It is important to mention that we added a 4.3MB file called log.txt which is filled with 0x00 and 0XFF in order to test the ability to read and decompress chunks. We need to include the full path in order to cat the desired file, for instance, if you want to cat 1.txt you need to specify tar/1.txt as the file to cat.

Z3-DM8168-MOD# tar cat fat usb 0 uboot-tarball.tar.gz tmp/log.txt gz
