Hello All:

Default console debug port was set in UART1 for mother board, but  our customer IMX6 board was setting for UART3.

The console shows random unstable since turn UART1 to UART3 as follow:

root@sabresd_6dq:/ #

root@sabresd_6dq:/ #

root@sabresd_6dq:/ #

root@sabresd_6dq:/ #

root@sabresd_6dq:/ # UV

I have no idea to fix this issue, modify code as follow:

arch/arm/configs/imx6_android_defconfig:

CONFIG_CMDLINE="noinitrd console=ttymxc2,115200 root=/dev/mtdblock2 rw rootfstype=jffs2 ip=off

arch/arm/mach-mx6/board-mx6q_sabresd.c:

static void __init mx6_sabresd_timer_init(void)

#endif

        mx6_clocks_init(32768, 24000000, 0, 0);

-       uart_clk = clk_get_sys("imx-uart.0", NULL);

-       early_console_setup(UART1_BASE_ADDR, uart_clk);

+       uart_clk = clk_get_sys("imx-uart.2", NULL);

+       early_console_setup(UART3_BASE_ADDR, uart_clk);

}

arch/arm/mach-mx6/board-mx6q_sabresd.h:

    MX6Q_PAD_SD4_CLK__UART3_RXD,

    MX6Q_PAD_SD4_CMD__UART3_TXD,

this way is work for ubuntu BSP, so I don't know why android OS has this problem.

Please kindly teach me how to fix it!

Thanks.

Thanks Jimmy. The UART setting is fine. I've found the problem, some driver is using the UART3 and I have manage to disable it.

I would need to know where these came from and how to disable them . The baud rate is 115.2kbps. These looks to me like some command sent out from some driver

Thanks a bunc

Regards

Albert
