Hello

I'm using flex-imx8mm

I want to change console from UART 2 -> UART 3. I changed it in the u-boot, but I can't start kernel.

Please help me. Thanks you

[UPDATE]

Change 0x30890000 to 0x30880000

"console=ttymxc2,115200 earlycon=ec_imx6q,0x30880000,115200\0" \

u-Boot change:

  • DTB

chosen {
bootargs = "console=ttymxc2,115200 earlycon=ec_imx6q,0x30890000,115200";
stdout-path = &uart3;
};

  • include/configs

#define CONFIG_EXTRA_ENV_SETTINGS \
CONFIG_MFG_ENV_SETTINGS \
M4_BOOT_ENV \
JAILHOUSE_ENV \
"script=boot.scr\0" \
"image=Image\0" \
"console=ttymxc2,115200 earlycon=ec_imx6q,0x30890000,115200\0" \
"fdt_addr=0x43000000\0" \
"fdt_high=0xffffffffffffffff\0" \
"boot_fdt=try\0" \
"fdt_file=undefined\0" \
"initrd_addr=0x43800000\0" \
"initrd_high=0xffffffffffffffff\0" \

....

#define CONFIG_MXC_UART
#define CONFIG_MXC_UART_BASE UART3_BASE_ADDR

Result:

Hi kat61545@eoopy.com‌,

Are you using the Yocto build system to generate the images?

If so then, you also need to change the value of the "SERIAL_CONSOLES" variable in the machine configuration file in yocto build. You need to assign ttymxc2 to the SERIAL_CONSOLES variable as well.

e.g. SERIAL_CONSOLES = "115200;ttymxc2"

Hope this will help you.

Regards,

Shivani

Thanks for response.

I tried it, but it didn't show in the uart3 (ttymxc2)

"

from dtb, uart3 should be tty2,   

 serial0 = &uart1;
  serial1 = &uart2;
  serial2 = &uart3;
  serial3 = &uart4;

test   /dev/ttymxc2 with cmd:

/unit_test/UART/mxc_uart_xmit_test.out /dev/ttymxc2  -B 9600

Thanks, but I do not understand your answer

This is my change. I stuck at "Starting kernel ..."
