Hi,

I want to display boot messages on hdmi/vga till the rootfs is mounted and then the desktop of ubuntu on my imx6q sabresd like custom board just like it happens on raspberry pi.

Can anybody help? I have used oneiric ubuntu rootfs from freescale and curretly boot messages are displayed on ttymxc1 console.

Hi,

You can try to set a different console in the u-boot bootargs.

For example I tried this with the fsl-image-gui image generated with Yocto.

setenv mmcargs 'setenv bootargs console=ttymxc3,${baudrate} console=tty1,${baudrate} ${smp} root=${mmcroot}'

And  see the bootlogs in the LVDS display and the UART console.

Best Regardds,

Alejandro
